    Comments about New Balance 847 Men's Black:

    Great lightweight walker, especially for those with knee or other problems requiring excellent support. No other shoe allows me to walk 3-4 miles a daye without pain. Not designed for wet weather, cold weather or slippery surfaces.

    Walking shoe review

    By Mark

    from Louisiana

    Comments about New Balance 847 Men's Black:

    Very comfortable. No stiff spots in the shoe that cause pain when they are new. Fits the foot very well. I have a narrow (2A) flat foot, and with the new balance pressure relief insoles they are a perfect fit.

    Good fit, comfortable, but

    By LuvsJa

    from Springfield, MO, USA

    Comments about New Balance 847 Men's Black:

    A very comfortable shoe--for me. I measure a 12A, which no one makes, but the NB 12AA works well. The only shoes that fit that description are the 847 and the 990. The predecessor to the 847, the 843, was too tight, but this 847 is just right. Overall, it is more comfortable than the 843. However, whereas the 843 was mostly leather, the 847 is largely nylon mesh. I don't expect it to hold up as well. And it is quickly getting dingy. Don't wear it in rain or dirt, which is to say outdoors. Ideal for mall-walking. If you need narrow, and will get dirty, then go for the 990 instead.

    Best walking shoe I've ever had!

    By dveronda

    from San Diego, CA, USA

    Comments about New Balance 847 Men's Black:

    I have worn these shoes for the past year and just bought me another pair. They are tops for the walker. I put them on in the morning and take them off at night. I walk for exercise close to 25-30 miles a week, thats around 1200 miles this past year and I still use them for dirt trails because I want to keep my new ones looking good. Great for a serious urban walker. I had them fitted at a New Balance store.

    Excellent, very comfortable walking shoes!

    By DocMacy

    from Brooklyn, NY, USA

    Comments about New Balance 847 Men's Black:

    I generally walk between four and six miles a day, and I've worn various New Balance walking and running shoes over the years (most recently the M990 BK3 running shoes). These are my favorite New Balance shoes yet for walking. I wear size 13 2E and find the fit to be true-to-size and the support and cushioning to be excellent. Highly recommended for those who enjoy walking!

    • About New Balance
    New Balance has grown to be one of the largest manufacturers of running shoes and they've done this without expensive advertising campaigns. New Balance knows that there is no better press than positive word-of-mouth. New Balance began as an arch support company, but in 1960, they designed the first running shoe with a ripple sole and the first running shoe that came in varying widths. It didn't take long before New Balance running shoes were used by college track teams all over the country. Today, New Balance makes their shoes available in more widths than almost any other company and that means that there's a New Balance that can fit nearly any foot. Although they started by making running shoes, New Balance tennis shoes are an industry staple and are loved by recreational and serious players. New Balance also makes fine running and tennis apparel, as well as a variety of socks and other sporting accessories.
