    "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."

    "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."

    "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."
