    - Ohio

    "Overall fit pretty well. Didn't have colors I wanted in my size so had to choose secondary color. Biggest disappointment was in the lasting durability of this model. Have bought many NB models over the years but this has had the shortest life. Toe on left shoe not well glued on and separated from shoe after only 3 months of wear. For the large price expected more."

    Nice shoe, but laces are too short!

    - Seattle, WA

    "Shoe runs narrow so make sure to order it wider ...otherwise the fit is good. I have not tested it in the mud and on the trails because the shoe laces are too short. I can not even barely tie it. So I have to go to REI or order some new shoe laces. HA!"

    Warm and Comfortable

    - New York

    "Brought these for myself and my husband - we loved how warm, comfortable and light these boots are!! Wore them all day as we went snow shoeing, snow mobiling, and just stood on the mountains watching grand-kids snowboard. Best boots we ever wore!"

    Amazing boot

    - Asheville, NC

    "The most comfortable boot I've ever had on my foot. The 4E is a true 4E and doesn't pinch my fat foot. Light, good cushioning, resilient yet doesn't feel like a block of wood on your feet."

    Hoped for a good hiking boot

    - bend

    "Was looking for a a good light hiking boot. These feel good on smooth level surfaces but the soles are very slippery. I have fallen 3 times on a local trail that has never been a problem with other boots. Snow and ice they are extremely slippery, no grip at all. The tongue is very thin and the laces dig into my foot and ankle. The leather is very nice and pliable, so no pinching. For the price I am very disappointed and will not trust other NB products."

    I love the boot and the color

    - Portsmouth, Virginia

    "I initially started to where it for work but I started to really like them. I got worried that I might mess it up. I really like the dark grey with the red tongue. The shoe is comfortable to where."

    Great boots.

    - Winchester,Va.

    Weekend Getaway

    "I love all my New Balance trainers. These are very stylish and very comfortable. They do however run a bit on the narrow side for a 2E, but still love them. Walked a total of 36 miles on a weekend getaway to Boston the first week I got them. I love the style of this shoe because it looks good with jeans and color schemes are easy to match."

    Best Boot ever

    "I just recently had a 20 year old pair of these boots completly fall apart, I was very bummed, but for 20 years they have been my favorite shoes. Wish I could find the same pair."

    Very comfortable

    - Buckner, MO

    "Nice shoe and very comfortable. Being waterproof is good and the thinsilate is not over the top hot. Pretty nice shoe/boot. I would recommend this product."

    Horrible shoes

    Pain reduction success

    - Cleveland, OH

    "I have been wearing low end New Balance shoes for years. This is the 1st time I tried the higher line from the New Balance store. Definitely a better quality shoe and my orthotics fit in perfectly. I can stay on my feet much longer and the overall pain has reduced without any medication. Already on my 2nd pair because I where them an average of at least 70 hours per week. They hold up well for a 290 lb guy."

    Great shoes

    - Ohio

    "Purchased more than once, love the fit of new balance. I only seem to be comfortable in new balance products. I have tried other's, price not an issue, and I still come back to new balance after returning the others."

    Great Fit and Comfort

    - Eagle, Idaho

    "I have what can be described as feet of distress; low volume foot, narrow heel, size B width, toe pinch problems, low arch, etc. After years of experimenting, I have found that NB shoes built on a "SL-2 Last" fit my feet perfectly and require no break in; no blisters ever! These Walking Shoes are the new version of the MW1540 and I just returned from Canada where I did a lot of hiking. I bought these just before leaving and had no time for a test/break in period. All went well and they did not disappoint. My only objection to these shoes is they don’t make them in a size 12 ½ so I have to buy size 13. Toe area seems excessively long but does not cause any problems except maneuvering them out of the back seat floor area of a car. I have found the SL-2 Last to work well for my running shoes and semi-dress NB shoes. Yes I pay more for NB shoes (width B are rarely on sale anywhere) but my feet thank me for it."

    Boot is comfortable but soft in sides and sole. Wide is wide enough for me.

    - Idaho

    "Good boot, somewhat soft esp. the sole with minimal tread. I am finding them comfortable since I need a wide boot they are good fit. I have been wearing them for about a month. Since I am a big New Balance fan and ,for the money, I expected a little heavier boot."

    they can't make better shoes !!!

    - Glendale az

    "you can put them on right out of the box, and walk 50 miles. they are the best shoes i've ever had, and i'm 61 years old !!!!"

    Substitute for MW978s?

    - Redwood City, CA

    "Both the representative on the phone and a salesperson at the shoestore said that this boot is a replacement for the MW978s that I loved. After several hikes, I am not convinced. The higher ankle rubs and is irritating when I walk. I can't wait to get them off! This one is just not up to the 978 standard. Please bring it back!"

    Nice Comfortable Hiking/Walking boot

    - Oakland, CA, USA

    "I'm always happy when I can find a boot that is comfortable and accommodates my AFO's, and these boots fits that bill. I use them as a motorcycle boot and walking so fare no complaints in fact I'm going to order another pair in a different color."

    great product

    - Connecticut

    "Very comfortable. Great for walking or running. Better than comparable brands."

    Mar 26, 2016

    Review is actually for 1400 BR (NB Website is wrong- I was sent a different shoe)

    - San Francisco, CA, USA

    "Outstanding craftsmanship - the shoe is ROCK solid. It's tough enough to provide stability but still comfortable. I've worn various versions of this shoe for over a decade.....ALWAYS LOVE IT! I feel stable maneuvering over bumpy slanted cobblestones climbing a pyramid - any uneven surface fells like a smooth carpeted super highway. They're my favorite serious walking/light hiking shoe. 5 Star recommendation."

    The shoes do not meet expectations.

    - Prescott, AZ, USA

    "I ordered a 4X wide because I have a high instep. The sides of the shoes do not extend enough to cover the tongue."

    Feb 26, 2016

    This product is true to size including width and upper is very durable

    - Newport Beach, CA, USA

    "Good light trail boot with very good support and rock protection, only negative is sole is not very aggressive and rubber compound soft. Sole is wearing fast and I've already used rubber compound to reinforce."
