Very pleased with NB. One size larger as recommended is just right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SpiritBear5 Love these, except....
Glad to see New Balance walking shoes in a narrower width. However, the AA (narrow) is still wider than a "narrow" should be, in my estimation. One can always depend on the comfort and support of this brand, but they should still strive to reach the customer with the narrower foot. And no, wearing athletic socks still doesn't fill them out enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasBluebell comfortable fit with plenty of toe space
I have a wide foot and ordered the wide fit which provides plenty of room for toe space. I like the mesh vents which really do keep my feet cooler during my walk. I can feel the cool air coming through the mesh. Might be a little cool for winter walking, but it's great for Texas summer walking. The shoes also have a removable insert that provides the extra cushion for the bottom of your feet. The tongues of these shoes lay better than any tongues of athletic shoes I've had before and the shoe laces stay tied which I've had trouble with in past shoes. I am pleasantly pleased with the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogwalker50 Comfortable, fairly priced
I'm a professional dog walker, and I have been wearing top-of-the-line New Balance walking shoes for almost 20 years. New Balance shoes run about 1/2 size small, so I buy an 8 1/2 (vs. size 8). I have tried more expensive, trendy walking shoes, but the cost/benefit analysis always brings me back to this model. There is sufficient support and cushion for my 50 year old feet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LadyHiker101 Just bought a second pair
Far superior shoe in comparison to those New Balance makes off shore now. I just returned a pair of imported New Balance shoes because the quality was so inferior. For starters, one shoe tongue was half an inch longer than the other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCuyahoga still wonderful
This is the third pair I have bought. When I used my LL Bean points to help with the purchase, they were a wonderful steal. I wear them for work and believe it or not, square dancing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by nwconsumer disappointing
I had a previous year's version of this same shoe but was very disappointed in this one. Ordered 11-Narrow, but this shoe is wider than other New Balance 'narrows', and I've had several pair of them. Heel was probably a narrow fit, but not the toe box - too wide. The materials seemed very poor quality, stiff, plastic, and not as cushioned on the footbed. Overall, just seems poorly made. As I've read from others, price of New Balance has gone up and quality down. Too bad. It gets a 2 star b/c it "looked" nice (before putting it on my foot!), but that's about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MNbrit Love these shoes!
I love these shoes, they're my favorite walking shoes. They provide great support and cushioning. The service from LL Bean is always good, received the shoes within a week of ordering with the free shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hardware1962 Best shoes ever for walking.
I've been wearing these shoes for years. They are the only shoes I wear for walking?I rotate two pairs. They are very comfortable, cushiony and have a wide toe area so they don't squeeze my toes when I wear thick socks. I do get a 1/2 size larger, as recommended.
