Rated 3 out of 5 by PeterinCA Not Good for over 3 Miles
I bought these for walking paved and well-groomed trails and only wore them once. I found them to be okay for 3 miles on pavement but after that distance the cushioning didn't seem to work, resulting in mild discomfort. Not so good on minimally rough trails either. So I guess I'm going to revert to real hiking boots with better cushioning. Merrill's have always treated me well. These may be fine for short distances, around town, etc.

Purchased 2 pairs for my hubby who wears them to work. He walks on a concrete floor all day long. He absolutely loves them. He also purchased the insole Spenco Walker/Runners which
helps with fatigue.

I'm in my late 60's and have been wearing New Balance, Rockport, or Clark's for at least 30 years. I mention this because I always wear a 10 1/2 Wide, and always have a perfect fit. This time, I could not even put them on, they were so small! I measured them against another pair, and the New Balance ones were almost half inch smaller in length. When I was measuring them I also noticed that they smelled like vinyl. I'm sending them back, don't feel like trying again because I'm disappointed in both quality control (New Balance), and quality of materials used.

I bought these for my husband because he has half a dozen pairs purchased in the past and they always turn out well. He wears them for working around the house as well as for dress (black) and they are always comfortable and good looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SaratogaLakeDweller Finally a Walker that I can use!
Tried sneakers. Tried brand a, b, c, etc. Even tried skateboard shoes. All eventually hurt here, there, everywhere. Then came the LL Bean New Balance 577s.
Perfect fit, immediate comfort...just amazing. I can now trail walk in comfort. What a blessing.
Roomy box toe, yet good lateral support. Just the right "balance" of support and comfort.
So good, I bought a 2nd pair. They're just as good as the 1st.

Been walking or running for 40+ years. Have used New Balance 577 for the last 4 years. Comfortable and good wear on paved roads. Really a good walking shoe!! Power walk 45 minutes every day. No complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by woodmanofwarvalley Absolutely the best fit out of the box I have ever
We live in the country so when I decided to take up road walking for
daily exercise I looked to LLBean to find the correct shoe.
Indeed, I found them and as per the ordering instructions ordered 1/2 size up in extra wide.
The shoes arrived and I put in 2 miles that very afternoon and was very satisfied with the no break in fit and total support which these shoes provide.
They were even on sale with $10 off which made the purchase even better.
Thank you LLBean.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by DLSeavey Always Good Quality
These walking shoes are wonderful. I find them to be very comfortable and durable. I'd recommend them to anyone who is on their feet a lot, and enjoys long walks. I have foot problems, so these are perfect for me. I wear a men's size because the women's aren't sized big enough. Since I have a wide foot, and wear orthotics, these works out perfectly.

I bought the same shoe from llbean years ago and they're still great. Couldn't resist getting another pair for special occasions. They are 'assembled in USA' , which is a real selling point. (LLBean is to be commended )
