Rated 5 out of 5 by PunkinsMom Great fit, poor color photo
Love these shoes! They fit well (1/2 size up from my normal size) and I love the tongue! Instead of having just one place to lace through to keep the tongue from slipping, every single set of eylelets has a corresponding place on the tongue to run the laces through. Wonderful! The only beef I have is the color description. In very specific light, it is a two-tone blue & gray. In most light, it looks like lighter gray and darker gray. The photo looking down at the top of the toe of the shoe comes closest to what they really look like. All in all, I think they're great and will buy them again if they're available when I need more. Just be advised about the color, if that matters a lot to you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CGinWI Good Walking Shoe
These shoes were comfortable right away. I ordered a half size larger based on the website's recommendation.
I agree with other reviews - they are basically grey (not much blue like the description) but nice looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2NAB Very comfortable
It's very difficult for me to find the right shoes because I have big bunions. I"ve received these shoes a while ago and wore them every day walking my dog and running errands. They are true to their length and I have enough room for my toes even with my large bunions. I feel very comfortable wearing them which doesn't happen with some other shoes. Thank you New Balance for making wide shoes for people like me. I own 5 pairs of New Balance shoes already.

These were ordered at the last minute before a trip out west so I was really pleased that they fit so comfortably. I wear orthodics in my shoes, so I need the wide width to fit the inserts. These were perfect and I was able to hike for miles with shoes right out of the box!! I don't care for the brightly colored sneakers so these grey/silver were best for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Usuallyquietone Comfortable, but color is off.
I sometimes have a hard time ordering shoes because of a wide foot and narrower heel. These are a regular size 9, which I have previously ordered from LLBean and they fit perfectly.
Would have given 5 stars but the color is definitely more two-tone grey. The only "blue" is on the number 659 and New Balance enblem. I would advise anyone about the color, but tell them the shoe is fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Swaneegirl Comfortable and supportive!
This shoe is a good choice for a lightweight hiking shoe. The support and cushioning are good. The fit is true to size. They were comfortable from the first wearing. New Balance never disappoints! Good price too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bestranchgirl Extremely comfortable
I'm glad I purchased these shoes. Never had a pair of NB but my choice was good. Very comfortable and never felt they had to be broke in, and I just took off and they were great. If I had to say anything about them that is negative, they are hard to keep tied; otherwise they are great.

These shoes feel like you've worn them for months when you first put them on.
The only thing it looked more like a blue shoe than grey on the web page. It definitely is more of a grey but still a good looking shoe.

Love my New Balance shoes - I've been looking for walking shoes in the stores, but couldn't find what I wanted (I'll only buy New Balance). Ordering from LLBean was easy - delivery was fast. I knew that NB are sized somewhat small, but having the sizing information from LLBean was very helpful (I ordered the 1/2 size larger as recommended and the fit is perfect). Plus you just can't beat the free shipping.

I love New Balance shoes but often have a problem finding my size in the wide sizes. It is so convenient to just put in the size and see what is available instead of searching shelf after shelf. I love the fact that I can send shoes back if they aren't exactly what I want. These were perfect and have several gym and hiking miles on them already. By the way, you have wonderful phone order people. They aren't just competent. They are unfailingly polite and pleasant to talk to - even off subject.
