After years of foot pain from planter fascitis and thousands of dollars of physcial therapy and special shoes. These shoes have offered the support I needed. They were recommended by a sport medicine doctor. I am a nurse and on my feet a lot and have always paid for good shoes. But despite the unusually long break in time they are the best shoe I can recall owning. They have little flex,and no side roll. The metal (rollbar) corrects improper balance and gait but cannot be felt through the shoe. Excellent shoe.

I have found that only New Balance Athletic shoes are the best for me. This shoe, in particular, is the best in comfort. I could feel the difference the moment I put them on. I have Morton's neuroma and these shoes have really made a difference. Having bought them in white, I only wish that New Balance would add more silver. They are very, very white. I intend to purchase them in brown next, so that I can wear them with my chinos and they won't stand out. This is a great product!

I purchased these shoes locally for 120.00 (won't make that mistake again) with the New Balance IPR3030 insoles as prescribed by my podiatrist. What a difference they have made in my foot comfort. I have PF, hammer toes and Metatarsalgia. I can now be comfortable all day. I stand on my feet on ceramic tile all day, as I work at an International Airport. Try em!

Just bought my second pair. I've worn NB's cheaper walking shoes for many years, the kind you buy at the mall. Always comfortable with no break-in. I found these online while looking for the model I had worn for years. NB periodically changes its models which drives me crazy. Anyway I tried a pair of these because they got good reviews and I do role my heels a little. I wasn't expecting the difference these made. At 50 I thought a little knee and hip pain was par for the course. These sneakers said no. Within a few days I could feel the difference. I still have some of my old sneakers kicking around for yard work and such. If I wear these for just a few hours I feel it in my knees. Well now I have a pair of 927 for yard work. Also, these claim better slip resistance which I can confirm.

NB - please don't change these. Just fire your design and marketing staff and keep making these. Thank you

I have worn New Balance 927 walking shoes for several years. While they are not suited very well for rough country walking, I have used nothing better for walking and NOT SLIPPING on wet floors and decks.

In stores where there are 'Wet Floor' signs out in all the bathrooms and on the store floor every time it rains... I check and if it does not appear oily, I ignore them to the astonishment of store employees and management. Therefore, that is all I wear while shopping, period.

Also, I recently went on a cruise to ports on the North Sea, the Baltic Sea, the Irish Sea and the English Channel... Most of the time the seas were rough enough that the Pool Deck stayed wet all morning most days. No problem in those shoes, they did not slip at all, no matter how much pitching and rolling the ship did. I would recommend nothing else for boat use unless steel toes are required.

I hope New Balance never drops them.

This is a great daily walking shoe. They are somewhat more expensive than some other walking shoes, however, based on comfort and build quality, they are well worth the investment. It's worth noting that these shoes will require a "break-in" period. The first couple of days were not real comfortable, but now they are quite comfortable. Also, Road Runner Sports (the vendor for these shoes) called right after I received the shoes to make sure the order was what I expected and asked how I like the shoes. Surprising (in a good way) to see this appreciation of good customer service these days. I highly recommend them.

I have worn the same New Balance Walking Shoe for years. I have narrow feet that get very wide at the widest part. I lost my arches due to an accident about 12 years ago so they flatten out more than before.

I always get size 9.5 4E, which I then fill with Spendco insoles designed for plantar fasciitis.

This year I decided to splurge and get the the more expensive version, the MW927. The step up from my previous New Balance walking shoes.

The interior of these shoes is MUCH larger than my previous shoes, even though they are officially the same size. My feet slide around in them, back to front, left to right. The toe area has way more empty space above the toes. I still have the previous pair so I can go back and forth to compare them. I do not remember the exact model of my previous pair, as I have worn them so long it has worn off.

But it is clear both say 9 1/2 4E yet the MW927 are way too big, the others are perfect.

Worse yet, 7 days after I receive them I get caught in one rainstorm. The black finish on the seams is coming off all over the place. That did not wear off any of the previous pairs until about 18 months to 2 years, wearing them all day in all kinds of weather.

That is normally the sign that it is time to get new shoes. With these new New Balance the seams started losing the black finish after the first rain. A month later and they are almost entire devoid of the black finish.

I have worn New Balance exclusively for years.

This is likely my final pair. I will be going to one of those fancy stores that evaluates what a customer needs. I do not think I will even bother to include New Balance in the options.

Oh yes, and after that one rain storm, they smell TERRIBLE. They smell like moldy rubber. All previous New Balance were worn in rain and snow, ankle deep puddles, without ever smelling like something rotten.

I was having problems during the walk to my workplace with the regular dresss shoes. I read lots of raving reviews about the NB MW927 and wanted to give it a try. Now I find the walk quite comfortable - thanks to MW927.

For about 20 yrs I'd owned & enjoyed the New Balance 846 & previous models for general walking and every day use & the 623 and previous models for outdoor work. During the past couple of years, possibly due to aging, I began to feel that the last on the 846 and 623 was too narrow in the toe box and arch areas. I decided to try the MW927 because the SL-2 last yielded a shoe that was wider in the toe area and had a narrower heal. Although the 927 is a somewhat bulkier shoe and less stylish that the 846 (also feels heavier than either the 846 & 623)it is more comfortable in my situation.

I'm now wearing a black pair of 927's for dress and white ones for general use, including outdoor work. I try faithfully to change shoes daily to give them ample time to dry out. Also, as with any shoe with a leather upper, they need to be kept out of the soaking wet grass and weeds or removed to dry reasonably soon after getting wet. I now own several pairs of the 927 and will be purchasing the new 928 replacement model. I rarely wear "dress shoes" or work shoes anymore, just my 927's.

So far durability is on par with the New Balance 623 and 846 and all previous models of those shoes. I've never had any complaints about durability. Like with almost any material item, abuse it and it has a shorter life span than if it were cared for properly. Use it real hard and the life span is shorter. Periodically clean the shoe and apply a good leather conditioner for longer life--it has a leather not synthetic-material upper. I wear the shoes for traveling, shopping, exercising, digging holes, climbing a ladder, shoveling & plowing snow, mowing grass, pruning trees and shrubs, and shooting of ground hogs and skunks. Seems to work for everything!!

Unless you have foot issues you won't be purchasing the 927 for its cutting-edge style. Style wise it gets shuffled to mid pack. Comfort wise it can lead. I suspect the market for this shoe is older men and classy, stand out- styling isn't generally their thing.

The shoes come smaller than what we expect. We have to pay $9.94 to ship the item back. There is no exchange. You can only take it or return it. Usually, with online shopping, they will wave the return shipping fee if the sizes is not correct. There is nothing mention in the website about the return shipping. It is deceiving to label as free shipping. It ends up no saving at all.
