Yes, I recommend this product.
"The New Balance model 847 & 847-V2 are without any doubts the best walking shoes I have ever purchased. I am a very active walker that averages 3-6 mile walks every day! I recently purchased my 4th pair of NB 847 walkers. I can honestly report that the construction, support and overall comfort of these shoes are highly superior. In recent years I have owned walking shoes made by other manufacturers like Nike, Reebok and Asics. Not one of these brands provided the ultimate support and comfort that New Balance does. In addition, I found that no other brand that I have ever owned seems to last as long. Truly you get what you pay for. Indeed, New Balance walking shoes are a bit more expensive, however, they do not break down as fast and surely outlast the competing brands. New Balance shoes have always fit true to size. I also appreciate the availability of extra-wide sizes, which most other brands do not provide. Although the design of the NB 847 are somewhat trendy, I wish that they were offered in more colorful options like the running shoe lineup. Having purchased my 4th pair which are currently in use, I absolutely anticipate the my next pair of walking shoes will also be New Balance!"
