Great shoe
By Virginia, from Rochester, MN | April 21, 2013
Per other reviews, I ordered a half size longer than I would usually wear and the shoes fit perfectly. They were comfortable right out of the box. I love New Balance because they are one of the few brands in which I can get a narrow width. And thank goodness for websites like Shoebuy that allows me to order narrow w widths. Retail stores do not seem to carry narrows any longer. Love my new shoes for country hikes and general wear!

Excellent
By Margaret, from Pennsylvania | April 18, 2013
Walked close to 15 miles in these so far. Comfortable and supportive. Room for my prescription orthotics. I think I like the dark brown better than the tan I have had before.

Instantly Comfortable
By Eliza, from Ashland, OR | September 25, 2012
Very comfortable from the moment I put it on. I ordered a 2E, even though I usually wear an E ... my toes have plenty of room and it's not sloppy.

Im keeping these.
By walking grandma, from northern CA | May 10, 2011
I have a lot of trouble finding shoes I can wear. I have neuromas in both feet. I bought these in 7.5 wide, and they have room for my orthotics and extra padding that I need. My foot is actually 6.5. I wish they came with more padding in the sole, but I'll be able to use them. I've had to return many other pairs that were just not roomy enough. These are well-made, and they are breaking in nicely - rather stiff at first.

Ankle rubbed to point of deep bruise
By Baker_hiker, from Maryland | May 02, 2011
Looked ok. Knew I was in trouble within the first mile though. Outside of left shoe rubbed into ankle so badly that I limped home. Tried again 2 weeks later. Ended up walking back to truck in stocking feet I was so miserable. Maybe I can use them for washing the car -- that's about it. Back to below the ankle trail boots. I've rarely been this disappointed about a purchase before.

I like these boots
By Barbara, from Washington Crossing, PA | March 17, 2011
They are very light weight. I like the fact that they are Gore Tex so they are water proof yet they don't make your feet sweat. They are very comfortable. The cushioning is really nice. I normally take a narrow, but because my socks are a little thicker when I wear these, I opted for a medium which is fine with all of the padding.
