I have previously had NB 927 walking shoes, thought this one would be sufficient, but after walking a mile my legs and feet hurt, these were not as supportive as the 927's. Figured I had worn them too much to return so I do wear them at work (Clinic job). I ended up reordering the 927's.

I've never worn a more deceptive shoe. I tried these on and they were very comfortable; plenty of room in the toebox to keep my feet comfortable, and fit like a glove across the rest of my foot. But after walking outdoors in them for 25 minutes, my feet were in so much pain, I had to stop walking! What a complete disappointment! Now, I can't return them and get my money back because I've worn them outside. I am utterly outraged that a shoe billed as "athletic" can only be used for decorative purposes. If you want sneakers to go on long walks in, to go to the fair or amusement park all day, or do workout in -- this pair is not for you! If you want a pair to stand in, that look okay with jeans, and that's all you want them for -- then get these shoes. But I'm warning you...the comfort you feel when you first try them on is thoroughly deceptive. They turned out to be a complete let down!

These seem to be the only shoes I can consistently wear. I love them, but they seem to wear out faster than they should given their price.

I'd also recommend: none works well for me.

A great, comfortable walking shoe. No break in time. comfy from the first time wearing them. And one more big thing for me...they are very lightweight! I just ordered my second pair. For me, they ran a little short. I usually wear size 8 but needed the 8.5 Nice flexible sole also that makes for a softer landing each time you put your foot down.

When I first tried these shoes on, they felt fine, but when I actually started walking outside in them, I found that I don't like them. The toe box is too tight for me. My toes keep jamming against the front of the shoe, even though I ordered my correct size. There is no arch support. I put my custom-made orthotics in, so that helped, but overall, I find that the shoes are not all that comfortable for the price. I have a pair of Asics that are less expensive but much more comfortable. I cannot recommend this shoe.

Do not like this shoe. It acts differently than the white/blue version. It is shiny on parts of it and the left shoe hurts. It squeaks and people look at me the few times I have tried to wear it. The pink looks more red to me.

This is a very comfortable walking shoe especially for wide feet with a large bunion. The cushioning is terrific, and they felt great from the first day.
