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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BajaCalSurTraveler Good looking, comfortable and great cushioning!
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.

My husband likes NB sneakers. He wears a size 8 shoe (which is a bit big on him) and he always gets a 9 in NB sneakers. With my LL Bean credit card coupons, these cost us $5, so he likes them even better.

This is my third pair of New Balance. They are comfortable and last longer than expected. I tend to need a 10 1/2 versus 10 Extra Wide as opposed to dress shoes. I walk a lot and need the support and good wear of these walkers.

I returned these shoes after wearing them 3 times. They were stiff, hot and "clunky". In general, they were uncomfortable.
