Rated 5 out of 5 by PhotoByGil Men's New Balance 659 Country Walker Shoes
I have worn various models of New Balance Walkers for more than 15 years and have been well satisfied equally no matter whether I got them at LLB or elsewhere. As to fit for normal shoes I wear an 8.5C or 8D depending on how the toe is shaped. With the NB Walkers I find that the appropriate size is an 8EEEE. So length is dead on without any toe pinching while I need the extra width for heavy socks and have no problem using them with thin socks either.

Have purchased wide shoes from Bean for years and have always been satisfied. This order again "fit" the bill.

Comfortable out of the box, handsome, and modestly priced -- from a respected footwear company. A definite winner.

Very comfortable walking/light hiking shoe. Was advised to go up a half size and fit is on the money.

This is a great shoe. I have already put in about 30 miles in them and they have been very comfortable and durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Basecampcamper Perfect in every way!
My husband really loves these shoes! He says that they are very comfortable (even right out of the box). They did not require a break-in period at all. In the brown color, they are a great alternative for having the comfort of a walking shoe without the appearance of a walking shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dirac Long Time Searching for This Shoe
I have generally tended toward light weight sneakers for walking shoes, having been willing to give up a certain amount of support for light weight and breathability. I have tried various more substantial waking shoes but always find them stiff and less agile than I would like. UNTIL NOW. The New Balance 659 is my perfect balance between the desire for light weight and agile and more support. My feet are comfortable and well supported. This makes a difference to me since I spend AT LEAST 6 hours on my feet everyday as an active classroom teacher and another hour or two walking for exercise daily routine. If you are looking for the perfect balance between light weight and support, not to mention acceptable style in an academic work environment, check these out.

Very good shoes. From past experience with previous pairs, they last a long time. It's just too bad that there are so few selections for EEEE shoes... extra wide. I'd buy more pairs if there were more styles offered.

My son has very wide feet so when I reviewed the New Balance 659 and it has 4E sizes,I ordered it even though it was back ordered up until January.Surprisingly,it came early from the factory wherever LLBean ordered it from.I do appreciate LLBean Staff for working hard and sending it early in time for Christmas even though they could have send it after .I was able to wrap it as a Christmas gift.That is what I call Excellent Customer Service at work!Too often,companies teach and talk to their employees about customer service and it remains as just a "talk". Thank You LLBean Staff.This is one reason why I am a loyal customer.
