Rated 4 out of 5 by CHuW Fits as expected (from experience);needs more arch
Better fit for a long, thin, narrow foot than most brands. Needs more arch, but I start with a soft 3/4 Birkenstock insert and later, switch to a 3/4 /Spenco arch when they have been worn a while. It would be nice to have another color than WHITE! I'll try a bit longer before a definite decision but will no doubt keep. Any other ideas on arch additions?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tal2 Very Comfortable, Perfect Fit
I am buying 2 extra pairs of the 847 before the last of these disappear...They redesign the shoes so often that when you find the one that's perfect for your foot it's time to invest in quality and comfort! I have been wearing New Balance brand for over 10 years, and these are my favorite shoe so far, great for aerobic exercise or workouts at the gym. The pair I'm wearing now fit so well right from the box, that there wasn't even any "break-in period". Thanks NB and LLBean, from a former certified personal trainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by abigail Have worn these for years
Do a lot of walking outside in summer and inside all year round. They offer great support. My knees started hurting recently, so I have been replacing the insoles with orthotics. Helps a lot. I think it's great that New Balance and some of the other shoes LL Bean sells have removable insoles for those of us with joint problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bettchen good fit
I have a narrow heel and bunions,so I need room in the toe box --- this shoe fit me perfectly, holding my heel but giving me space for my toes. I was pleased that LLBean finally carried a shoe with AA sizing.

These shoes are very comfortable. I pronate when I walk and I feel great in these shoes. I just wish I had a couple more pairs!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by ColdinMA1 Disappointed
I have used the NB walking shoes for years and found the 846 to be the best all around. The 847 is too wide in the toe box in the narrow width which make the shoe feel too big all over. They have a 847v2 that is new to NB but is always out of stock at NB. That is supposed to be a better fitting shoe.

Rated 2 out of 5 by doterina Possible design flaw in New Balance 847
Unfortunately I had to return these shoes. There were some lumps inside the top of the toe box which put pressure on my toes. The lumps were at the spot where the seams were sewn together. And because this model is not made with real leather, I knew they could not stretch to fit properly. I have been wearing New Balance shoes for quite a few years and have not run into this design problem before. I have had great success with New Balance 608 Cross Trainer and NB 1765 Premier Walking Shoe, which I have been wearing for the past 4 months and they are still going strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Juddie Most comfortable shoes
I am completely happy with these shoes. I ordered a half size larger, as advised, and they fit me perfectly. They have much better support than my previous purchases of running shoes, and the insoles are extremely comfortable (soft but still supportive). I have a lot of heel pain, and these have been a tremendous help. Finally, a successful shoe purchase!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nobis Walking shoe
Very comfortable, great support, yet light weight. This shoe also comes in 2D (extra wide) but, you don't carry it. I would have preferred the 2D.
The length runs long.
