Rated 5 out of 5 by CYost 4E New Balance Shoes
My husband wears orthotics which require a wide shoe -- New Balance through LL Bean usually carries 4E which are almost impossible to find in shoe stores without having to wait for a special order.
He finds these shoes comfortable and light weight and they fit perfectly. LL Bean's Customer Service always goes the extra mile to put the customer first. We truly appreciate that they carry his size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marg Wide foot perfection!
My husband's extra wide feet are in heaven with these comfy cross trainers. This is his second pair. Stylish, light weight and comes in EEEE width...the price is right too!

The left shoe constricts at the heel. I have had to loosen it.
LL Bean is noted for quality and should talk to the manufacturer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Humbo Can't be beat
These and their cousin (or predecessor, not sure which) the 623's, may be the most comfortable and best shoes I've ever had. Have had 3 pairs. With wide feet I get EE width. These brown suede shoes look great for a long time (years, and IMO, better than white or some other color). The older pairs I still use for working in the yard; this newer one is great for around town & walks. The pair I just got had a manufacturing defect so I returned them to LL Bean & had a replacement pair within a couple days through UPS.

Liked the style, but there are ribbon loops instead of eyelets/holes for 4 of the shoelace holes. First time I went to lace them up , it pulled out. They are sewn on. I returned/exchanged them for another pair and the same thing happened. My white 608s do not have ribbons. I think I'm keeping the second pair and punching holes in them instead of the ribbon loops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stendhal Very comfortable, lightweight for its bulk
I was surprised at the excellent fit and strong support of these shoes. From the first try on. Perfect for late fall and winter. Price was very good. I am a long-time buyer at L L Bean, and a very happy camper. I like the great convenience of being able to shop by catalogue and feel that the quality of merchandise is always good and the returns policy unbeatable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MNLOON New Balance 608 Great All-Around
I've been wearing these cross trainers for many years. Yes, NB continues to "update" almost each year, but the performance and wearability remains good. I do lots of walking (3-5 miles/day) and have tried specific walking shoes and running shoes but none feel as good as NB cross trainers. They're a wonderful everyday, all-around shoe that goes well with my casual LL Bean attire. White or brown. Take your pick. I like to keep a new pair for the time my current pair wear out.

This is easy. It's my fourth consecutive pair of New Balance 608 shoes, so clearly I'm very satisfied. So if you are like me, 90 years old who walks a half mile plus safely every day, get a pair of 608s..
