Rated 5 out of 5 by marines1and2 Senior Citizen Daily walker
I have been ordering this shoe for many years and have always been more than satisfied with its quality and fit. Daily walks are important to me and my shoes have to do the job; this shoe does just that.

I've been happy with these shoes. New Balance generally makes a good product. These shoes have good cushioning and are surprisingly light. Based on the other New Balance shoes I've had in the past, the treads will last a long time. The fit is good and the shoes are very comfortable.

The shoes have been have been very comfortable and are holding up well. I just wish they had a little more ventilation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fpweber9507 Excellent performance
I have purchased more than ten pair of New Balance, Performance Walkers over the past fifteen years. They are excellent for my aerobic workouts as well as comfortable and stable for hiking. The only disappointment with the 847's just purchased is, they have eliminated the heel loop which helps in slipping into the shoes. These are expensive footwear, but provide good value over time.

I am 75, very active and have been wearing New Balance walking shoes for many years. These 847 Performance Walkers are the most comfortable and stylish casual shoes that I have ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Biologist Best New Balance Walking Shoe
I've been wearing New Balance Cross Trainers for a long time as a general day-to-day shoe. Typically, New Balance shoes have great fit and support. My 606's were exactly right, the 623's a bit wide. These 847 Walkers are just a tad on the tight side, but perfect with a thinner sock. The best part is that the open weave improves the shoe enormously. The Cross Trainers did not provide good ventilation, so my feet were always slightly damp at the end of the day. These are perfect; my feet are dry after all day wear. Somewhat more expensive but worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TJOhio Cannot Go Wrong With New Balance!
Every day I walk nearly five miles. That requires a durable shoe that is comfortable with good support as anyone who walks or runs can attest to. New Balance has been my choice for walking and for leisure for years now and LL Bean provides me with a great source at good prices and with free shipping how can I go wrong!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DuhProf Deceptively good shoe
With my poor busted-up feet from years of work and heavy hiking, I need a shoe to show kindness to my dogs.
When I first got this walking shoe I was apprehensive: it seemed small and narrow with no breathing room for my tootsies.
Wrong! I mistook excellent support and cushioning for a narrow cut. The shoes have superb support for arthritic feet with poor arches. The arch and sole are just right, and the more I walk on them the better I like them, although unlike running shoes they do not permit a lot of interior movement, and their lateral support is perfect.
