Rated 5 out of 5 by Fitwalkerzz At long last - the search is over.
When I read the description for this shoe in the catalog, I thought: if this shoe is as good as it sounds, I'm in luck. I have been looking for something that promised good support in the heel. At last, I have found the walking shoe I have been looking for. I have worn these shoes now several times and am very happy with my purchase. The size 10M fits true to size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LadyHiker101 Toe box is narrower than other New Balance
Exchanged them as fit was narrower in the toe box than other New Balance shoes I have worn. I also found the overall quality of the shoe didn't compare to the New Balance shoes that are still made here in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rottiwalker Very comfortable
I like these shoes! They're actually very comfortable from the very first wearing. No break-in period is required. I've worn them about a month, and I walk 2-3 miles a day in them most days of the week. The top is softer and more flexible than my previous walking shoes, so the support is not real firm on the top of the shoe, but that just makes the shoes more comfortable. I'm happy! I also like the dark grey color with the purple trim. They don't show dirt. I usually wear a 7 1/2 medium, but based on the reviews I went up 1/2 size to an 8 medium, and the fit great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShoppingQueen250 Great walking shoes
These shoes have a lot of support, and are very comfortable for walking. I regularly walk 4 miles, and these shoes work very well. There is plenty of room in the toe box, and they are constructed of sturdy materials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cotswaldgirl Very good fit for me
As someone with hard to fit feet, I was hesitant about these shoes.
Initially I thought they would not work out. BUT after wearing them for
a few hours every day they conformed to my feet and are very comfortable and supportive. I ordered another pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cutouts comfortable walking shoe
New Balance has always been my "go to" brand of sneakers. My foot size is 10-1/2 and so I purchased the 11 upon reading others reviews. We just got back from vacation where we did alot of walking. These walking shoes fit like a glove and I needed no "break in" time! Love them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Svenska23 Very comfortable, could be wider
I wear a 6 1/2 D+ width shoe. Despite what other reviewers suggest which is to buy a 1/2 size larger, I decided to purchase my actual shoe size. A 1/2 size larger shoe extends the width beyond where I need it. This shoe is comfortable and light. I recommend, if you wear a D width, that you realize wearing a normal atletic sock will make the shoe too narrow and uncomfortable. Kneehigh stockings would work nicely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OnTheRock So light!
Wore them the entire day right out of the box and they were great. Amazing, since I have problems with shoes fitting correctly. I did follow the suggestion and got a half-size up. If your shoes fit exactly right now, you may want to get a whole size up. One caveat: not a lot of support for trail hiking, but quite comfortable around town and on easy trails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsAwesome1 Great Fit!
This is the best walking shoes I've ever had. Fit perfect, it feels like it was personally made for me. I am 100% very satisfied. Quality of the raw material used is superb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Oldparkhermit comfortable
Very comfortable toe box and overall the shoe is comfortablel, however the "cavity" in the heel part of the sole traps snow and mud. The shoe is not for walking during "mud season" in Colorado, where I live.
