These are really great shoes. I had a pair of NB Country Walkers that I had worn for 8 years and wanted a replacement. Because of the way NB categorizes the "shoe last" (heel width, instep height, forefoot width and toe box depth), I knew this style shoe last - AL-2 was exactly the same style as my old pair. After reading the recent reviews, I decided to order a wide. These shoes arrived quickly and they were perfect right out of the box. This model has a very stable footbed, important to me since I have problems with tendons in my heels. The inside cushioning is just enough to be comfortable without being mushy. I might just order another pair in a different color! I also ordered the NB 659, which has the same AL-2 last, but they were too soft overall and the shoe area around the instep was extra wide and fit poorly, so returned them.

This is the successor to the shoes that I have worn forever, which now are no longer made. These shoes are not as good looking, but are as comfortable. I spend lots of time on my feet - I do health walking and also have a volunteer job that requires walking on trails for several hours a week. New Balance are pretty much the only shoes that I can wear, because of my very long, very thin, arthritic feet. Zappos always provides excellent service.

I love these shoes. The last few pairs of New Balance shoes that I bought did not have support and hurt my feet. These shoes are wonderful. The support is great and no sore feet. I am going to buy a back up pair in case New Balance decides to discontinue the WW759, which New Balance always does when I find good shoes.

Great fit for a narrow foot - I find New Balance athletic shoes to be the best fit for my narrow foot. I have substituted walking for running due to a hip issue, these shoes are my first pair of shoes designed specifically for walking. I find the fit extremely comfortable.

This is a great walking shoe. When I first put these on and started in walking, it felt like I was walking on air and I could walk forever. I didn't have to break these in. I have a wide foot and high arch and they seem to fit great.

Great shoe! I LOVE this shoe!! Although, I did need to order it in a 1/2 size larger. I also put a heel support in it, but that's due to the fact "I" need that kind of support, I'm sure others would not.

I love this shoe! Since I started buying New Balance in 1996 I have never had another walking or exercise shoe. I buy a new pair every year. The WW759 is no exception to great. And as always, Zappos delivers.

Great ankle support - It took me one week to break in these shoes indoors. At first I was put off by the rigidity and stiffness of the mesh around the ankles. It was initially uncomfortable as I have been spoiled by the suede materials in my New Balance 843s and my 3 pairs of 926s. The 759 is wider in the toe area much like the more expensive 926s for which I am grateful. However, I must wear thicker socks to cushion my skinny ankles with these shoes. I needed a shoe that flexed more in the toe area than the 926 for long walks as I was having muscle fatigue. So far, the 759 is working out better and my leg muscles aren't as sore after walking. If the mesh part around the ankle was made of a little bit softer material I would give this shoe a higher "Comfort" rating. I probably won't buy this particular shoe again but I don't regret my purchase.

I had a failed spinal surgery followed by a successful hip replacement. The pain in my left leg and foot is similar to continuous electric shocks. Wearing New Balance WW759's enables me to walk with less pain and without tilting forward like most running and walking shoes.

I bought a pair of these at Academy Sports three years ago, and because I am difficult to fit I wanted a pair just like I already had. These shoes felt true to size although just a tad narrower in the toe box, but otherwise comfortable. New Balance is my favorite brand.

These sneakers were exactly what I wanted, and I needed a wide - the fit was perfect. They are very comfortable, and I wear them daily and also use them at the gym to work out.

Brands I'd also recommend: I only buy New Balance sneakers, so I can't recommend any other brands

I can't really tell if this shoe will work out till I've worn it for several weeks, but so far so good. It looks great, even in the gigantic size that I wear. Zappos itself is terrific -- good, fast service.

Excellent walking shoes! I didn't even have to break them in. From putting them on the first day, they were the perfect fit. I am hard on shoes - I tend to over pronate. The soles are very sturdy and have held up well from a lot of walking on rough terrain. I also walked all over London in them and my feet never got tired!

I absolutely love these shoes! They don't need to be broken in. From the moment I put them on, they were comfortable and didn't pinch anywhere. I need wide fittings on some shoes but not these. I bought the size 7 B and they fit perfectly. I have worn them for everyday use as well as walking several miles a week. They have lasted well. I tend to over pronate and the heels have held up well. I have even thrown them in the washer and let them air dry and they still fit great!

Comfortable right out of the box. I have a wide foot and a narrow heel, so it's hard to find a shoe that fits well. I ordered a wide width in these, and my toes had enough room. Some wide width shoes look awkward on me, but not these. The design masks the fact that it is a wide width. If I lace them snugly, the heel fits OK.

Very comfortable right out of the box. Well reconstructed. Great support where you need it. I found that I needed to size up 1/2 and I chose to go with a wide width because the first pair felt too snug. I am very happy with my purchase.

I needed comfortable brown shoes for work and these have worked out great. New Balance shoes tend to run small for me, and this shoe was no exception so I ordered a half size up. They were generally comfortable to wear all day straight out of the box. The only small issue I had was the mouth of the shoe comes up a smidge higher than I'm used to and pressed on my ankles a bit. Overall a great shoe. I would definitely order them again!

I have no complaints about the shoe. I have such a large, wide foot that I find it hard to find shoes to fit me. Thankfully Zappos has some large enough for my feet without me having to buy mens sneakers, as I have quite often done before. I hope Zappos will continue to have larger size shoes available for women like me. I love Zappos, they are my first choice when buying my shoes and if they don't fit I can return them, free of charge and order another pair until I get the right fit. Keep up the good service Zappos. Shipping was fast as well.

Sturdy and very comfortable. Due to rounded toe, the fit is according to size. I have room for orthotics,as well. Due to depth of sole, they have kept clean even on muddy trails. And, sole grips surface well.

I like the way these shoes look and feel--very comfortable. They are a little loose in the heels as noted by other customers, but so far that hasn't presented a problem for everyday use. I have also noticed with New Balance products that I need a half size larger than usual, so that is what I ordered.
