I had previously worn the Propet Washable Walker so am comparing the Stability Walker to that model. I find the Stability Walker to be an ideal shoe for me, a 78 year old woman who has some balance problems, walks a lot and attends exercise classes. The Stability Walker is more stable, having a wider footprint (wider soles on the ground) and higher uppers. Also, the sole is thicker which means it will wear longer and also that makes walking on hot summer pavement more comfortable. I did find the shoes to be slightly wider than the same size of the washable walker, but extra tightening the laces took care of that. These are excellent, comfortable shoes for general purpose walking and exercising and I really like them.

Not for Disney walking! These shoes look nice and are comfortable on the foot. However, after walking 5-6 hours in them, my feet hurt so bad -I couldn't even rest at night because of the aching. It's almost as if there wasn't cushioning or something there. There were no blisters or red marks on my feet, they just plain hurt. This wasn't a 1 time thing, either, it was for 5 days straight. I walk everyday, at least 2.5 miles, and my feet NEVER hurt. I'm not at all happy with these sneakers for long walking.

I've been wearing this shoe for at least 5 years. It's the only shoe that gives me stability (keeps my foot and ankle straight and doesn't fatigue my arch); and I appreciate the fact that they come in narrow width. I have orthotics that I need to wear with all my shoes and the Propet Stability Walker accommodates them very well. I just lift the inner liner that comes with the shoe, insert the orthotic and reinsert the liner on top and I am good to go! And I love the idea it is a leather shoe! Wears well and lasts longer and the leather helps stabilize the foot. I hope Propet continues to make this shoe for a long time to come! My only wish...please add some neat colored accent to the white ones! Like pink, purple, bright lime green, red, etc.

Pointed toe - I wear a 9 EE, but in this shoe I think I could go with a EEE. And I need to wear a heavier sock. The looks are fine, but it does pinch little toe more because of the more pointed toe.

For the truly wide of foot. Propet never fails to provide a comfortable shoe. I have been buying this particular style of sneaker for years. Wide enough for my 4E feet. I got the size 6.

This shoe does exactly what it says it does and it provides wonderful stability! My feet are so badly flat and pronated with no arches anymore. It is very difficult to find comfortable shoes. The foot stability provided by the construction of this very lightweight but sturdy shoe is amazing and they look good too!

Brands I'd also recommend: For my feet, there is nothing like Propet.

These shoes are wonderful! They were comfortable and fit well right out of the box. I have been using them for aerobics, and the support is fantastic. When these wear out, I would definitely get another pair.

I have problem feet and a really high arch and small feet and have had several surgeries on my ankles and these shoes are wonderful! The broad toe and broad base help stabilize my ankles for better walking. As I need a very wide shoe (4E), Zappos is one of the few places I can find shoes that really fit!

I have wide feet due to multiple surgeries. This shoe narrows down too much at the beginning of the toes, rubbing the foot. Otherwise it fits everywhere else. I'm sad I can't keep it. The Propet Tour Walker II are a much better fit in the toe area. These I will keep and order more.

Finally found shoes that are wide enough for my feet! The sole is definitely more "stable", being as wide as the top of the shoe. They do help me walk more securely. Love them!

These are excellent shoes. I wear a 13W and usually have to buy men's tennis shoes. These fit perfect. They stability works; I am sometimes wobbly and I feel more secure on my feet when I wear these shoes.

Once again, Propet does it. It's comfort right out of the box, no break-in time required. Only thing I hated about these shoes is the narrow shoelaces! ugh. I need to really tighten my shoes and ouch the laces hurt! Easy fix, put my own in! I do wish that these came with super cushioned insoles, however. And much more arch support. Then they would be true stability walkers for me. But like all Propets, they have enough room for me to add my own insoles and beef up the arch support for my strange feet!For anyone not needing more arch support- no modifications would be needed. I wish these came in some jazzed-up colors, I love them.

I have extra wide feet and use custom orthotics. The fact that the Propet Stability Walker come in an extra wide width is a real plus. The removable liner allows me to use my orthotics under or over the liner. The liner is also removable for washing to keep the shoe fresher smelling. All of these features and the roomier toe box allow me to stand for eight hours a day. An excellent shoe.

I ordered this shoe in Black in order to match a brace that goes inside my shoe and has black straps on leg. Must say that although I have ordered three other styles, these accommodate me the best. I am actually wearing them now. Plenty of room for ortho and also the best part of them is that, being it is winter, they have excellent traction. I feel they are a little on the ugly side, but they sure do the job, accommodating a brace and keeping me safe with slippery walking. They also make for stable walking, just as name implies. Highly recommend for anyone with a problem walking or who just wants safe footing.

Brands I'd also recommend: Easy Spirit Jumper and Propet Life Walker

Awesome shoe - I really like this shoe and I can work all day in them with my feet not getting sore anymore. I certainly appreciate that they come in so many widths. I bought the widest width and it is just wide enough.

Finally, a good shoe for my narrow feet. This really is a good stable shoe. It fits my narrow feet well, although the heel could be a tad narrower. It prevents my feet from rolling outward and has a heel cushion good enough for walking on concrete. I would buy this shoe again.

Try something new, Stability Walker - I was in an auto accident last year that crushed my left ankle. Now I need a shoe that is extra wide with a roomy toe area and that has stability for supination. I bought a pair of New Balance 587 which I loved...BUT the bottom fell off of them before 5 months. I think a shoe that costs over $100 should last longer. I decided to try something new. I got the Propet Stability Walker. It gives me all the features that the New Balance did but without the high price. I've only had them a couple of months. I wear them to work everyday. So far they are holding out very well.

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance 1122

Still not wide enough! I really hoped this shoe would fit, but it isn't as wide as they say it is. I think it would be comfortable for someone with narower feet.

looking for 2nd pair I wore my first pair of these shoes for about 2 years almost everyday before they finally wore out. The width was good but this time will a half size larger just because I found that is what I need. My left is flat due to old injury. These shoes never hurt that foot. Am buying another pair.

Stability walker. I have problems with finding shoes wide enough, but these did the trick. They do run large, though. I think I could have gotten a 1/2 size smaller than my usual size. Overall, they're comfortable and look like regular tennis shoes, not orthopedic!
