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!

For my feet, the perfect walking shoe! This particular "last" works best for my feet (get more info on NB lasts on their website). I have flat feet and the right one has a bunion and a very painful neuroma. This last is more narrow in the heel and bigger in the to box, which is a must for me. And the shoe is very, very orthotic friendly. I try them all and currently have two items in the left she and three in the one on the right and everything fits. In addition, this shoe is not the usual awful white or black. I really wish that New Balance would get more creative with style. This one is different and people comment on it all the time. For my lousy feet, a great shoe!

These are the only shoes I can wear and not have my feet hurt. The 847 is a great model. They are very comfortable for my nursing job. The silver color is great, after years of only having white or black. My wish is that New Balance would make this line in some of the bright fun colors that a lot of sneakers are now. GREAT SUPPORT AND ACCOMMODATE ORTHODICS NICELY.

As a new person to more "athletic" walking shoes, I probably won't hit all the main points, but I'll do my best. I normally wear 7.5/8 in Keen and 8 in Dansko, standard width. In these I am taking an 8 to accomodate socks and swelling but probably could have done 7.5. These are advertised as having a wider toe box and narrow heal (see NB web site; after much research I arrived at this shoe's last), so I originally ordered standard width. I ended up sending them back for a wide. I am new to NB so I didn't realize they run a little narrower than I am used to in other shoes. CONS: Very pricey not to have leather (breathable, conforming) in the upper. Not as much arch support as I'd like and as was advertised. The color options are too few compared to other NB shoes and this appears across the board in motion control walking shoes in this price range. Heal slips a little though it was advertised as narrow. Run a little hot, not breathable. PROS: Extremely light weight. Good cushioning. Motion stability in the heal. Appear well made. Made in USA. Good motion control on outer part of shoe. Comfortable out of the box. Zappos quick shipping and customer service allowed for ease in exchanging sizes. I will probably keep these because all research points here and not really elsewhere, but they could improve some things.

I'd also recommend: Keen, Dansko

I absolutely love these newly remodeled sneakers. Having plantar fasciitis for a few years, this style is even better than its former self. (I had W846 bit this model is even better.) The color of silver is great and new. Buy them, you will not be disappointed!
