I hike and walk hills and pavement and also occasionally run. I have a large bunion and need a wide width and large foot box which this has. The full leather does not cut around my bunion as other shoes with nylon and leather,where the leather wraps around the nylon exactly at the bunion. This would be so uncomfortable. I am so thankful for RR for helping get this shoe. They have always given advice for comfortable shoes but this is the best I have had since I called RR for the first time 25 years and got NB 626's.
Not for extensive walking!
New Balance shoes are definitely no longer of past quality. I purchased the shoe [for walking] in Tan, tried it in the house [mistake]. The fit was okay with my orthotics but still tight [I wear a "B" but ordered a "D"] and a bit large. I then ordered the Grey, when it arrived [almost two weeks later], I wore it for the day. It was 1/2 size too large, and even tighter than the Tan pair. I'm returning them today.
Obviously I do not recommend this Shoe.

My perfect walking shoes
These are great walking shoes! Very comfortable (once they were stretched using a shoe stretcher). Ordered a half size up, per customer service rep, and they are a great fit. Sturdy, yet stylish, and cushion my feet on daily walks.

Pricey and uncomfortable
Thought these would be comfortable all-around shoes - pricey but comfortable. Well, they're pricey and uncomfortable and they look like you're wearing old tires. Returned them...
