Rated 5 out of 5 by Fairfax44 great shoe, but fabulous customer service!
I purchased the lighter weight NB walker many months ago, but didn't wear them until the weather broke a week or so ago. A brisk walk proved the larger size not right for my arches. I mentioned my disappointment to the clerk in the shoe department and he said that I could bring them back and get the all-leather walker in my original size! Bean's leveraged the price to make it reflect the orginal offer, and I am one very, very, happy camper. Thank you LLBean!

Rated 2 out of 5 by mtnabuelita disappointing new style
I am disappointed in these Country Walkers. I have had and loved at least 2 pairs previously. The new style does not fit as well because they are too tight at the ankle if I lace them to the top. I can leave the top one or two eyelets unlaced, but that looks untidy. (Yes, I ordered and received the same size as previously: size 9 1/2 W.)
The previous style had hooks at the top and allowed more flexibility at the ankle.
If you still have any of your previous style hidden away, I would be happy to buy them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shopva Rugged and very comfortable
I am so happy with these shoes. They act like expensive boots but are as comfortable as leather tennis shoes. They are truly waterproof and shed dirt so well they always look good. This was a great purchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rangerjo recommendation to order larger
It was recommended that we order a half size larger than normal. I did not find this to be true. I stayed with a 7 medium which I always order in New Balance. That was too wide and slightly long. I returned those for a 7 narrow. They are still slightly long, and feel too roomy. I am keeping them because I like the appearance and that they are waterproof. It will be necessary to wear heavy socks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Eye4Nature Unacceptable
Have worn New Balance for years due to long narrow foot.
Regrettably these shoes have a very stiff edge to the tongue which bores into my ankle. Tried several times to see if it would soften, but to no avail.
Therefore I have returned them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Experiencedcustomer Spaceious, wonderful coushioning, very confortable
These shoes are great, I purchased them in wide to allow fit for my bunions and they also have a high instep and high toe box plus a narow heel. There is plenty of room to wear my orthoptics without removing the insoles. This allows me to get the full benifits of all the coushioning. I put them on and have not taken them off and they are waterproof. I have ordered a second pair due to arrive tomorrow. I have a high arch, hammer toes and bunions and love to walk these shoes are perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KSZee Women's Wide
I read the reviews and the site suggestion to buy a size larger. So I ordered a 10D. They were so large my feet came out trying to walk in them. To tell how large they were I ended up keeping an 8.5D pair. My running shoes are 10D and my regular shoes are 9.5D. The only negative is in the NB design. The heel sides are a little to high for a women's foot. Almost like the tried to just label a men's shoe as a women. I put a heel wedge in and it raised my foot enough that it doesn't rub my ankle bone when walking. I was wanting a leather shoe with no vents to ride on the motorcycle (my feet get cold with air going thru) and still be able to walk trails without changing shoes. Finally found these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Elainee Well Made and Comfortable
I bought these walking shoes because they came in an AA size. My feet are very narrow and thin and with my ortho liners they are very warm and fit my feet. I walk every day for 45minutes continuously and they are great!! I would recommend them to any
woman who has a narrow foot. Just follow the advice of ordering a
half size larger than what you normally wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1865Farmhouse Not for me
I think these shoes are very well made. Fit very nicely. I did return them and the reason I did was because this shoe in a ladies size 9 looks masculine. It's just too much......Too Brown, Too bulky......Wish the same great New Balance features were on a shoe that was a little more streamlined.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pointrtraveler pinched
I thought these shoes would be great for walking in the fall and winter because they are waterproof. I usually take a medium width. Unfortunately the left shoe pinched my baby toe. So I sent them back. Fit is everything to me. So disappointed.
