    Good fit and comfortable

    "The shoes fit well and are comfortable. New Balance is the only athletic shoe mfgr that has my size, 14AA. My only complaint is that they don't over more styles. A black walking shoe, which was offered before but is now unavailable, would be a good place to start."

    "This shoe give exactly the right combination of comfort and support. We are daily power walkers and have logged more than 150 miles since we got them. I should note, too, that I have had surgery on both knees. With the help of these shoes I walk perfectly normally! As a dedicated walker I officially dub these as absolutely perfect."

    "This is my third day with the 847v2. It normally takes me a few days to break in new shoes before I review them. I chose these after wearing out a pair of the original 847's. So far, so good. These are plenty comfortable and breathe nicely as to not cause my feet to sweat."

    Oct 17, 2016


    - Venice, FL

    "Second pair of this sneaker - the first pair fix PERFECT - second pair same size but way too small and tight"

    Excellent shoe!

    "As noted, the shoe runs a bit small and recommends that you order a half size larger. That was fine."

    Did nothing

    - Massapequa new uork

    "Very uncomfortable returned tight hard on sole just wasn't a fit for me"

    Bad design

    - Folsom, CA

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "I have been buying New Balance shoes for years and never had an issue until these. I agree with other reviewers the shoes slip in front and bad design on the shoe laces. The main issue I have is with the heal. There appears to be a bump on both shoes that causes blisters on the back of the heal."

    Jul 29, 2016

    Fit runs small

    - Orlando, FL

    "I would recommend with the knowledge that it is running small, had been a NB customer forever, every once in a while I do run into this kind of concern, not sure if NB will consider replacing with a size bigger (from 9 to 9.5)"

    Jul 27, 2016

    Good shoe, size is small

    - Ohio

    "I have been buying New Balance for years, because of size consistency. Lately the last two pairs have been too short. Seems like the sizing has changed. Now I will have to experiment to find my optimal size again. This is a great shoe, but I had to send it back, because it did not fit. I am disappointed."

    Jul 23, 2016

    Not as good as the original 847

    - St. Augustine, FL

    "Seems to run wider than the 847 through the toe area, also the flat shoe laces come untied more easily and get knotted more easily as well. The original 847 was a much more comfortable shoe. Also, the v2 seems to be not wearing as well. I've not had it as long as the 847 and already seems to be wearing out. I'm not sure why New Balance felt they needed to 'improve' the original 847. "If it ain't broke don't fix it""

    Jul 22, 2016

    This shoe runs extremely smaller than the size I ordered.

    - Camp Verde, Az

    "I wear a size 11 4x wide in Women's. I ordered a Men's size 10 4x wide. I can't believe how small the shoe was. It felt like a Women's size 10. I have purchased men's shoes in the past from the New Balance store and a Men's 10 fit me very well with plenty of room to move my toes. These shoes are definitely sized wrong."

    Jul 18, 2016


    - Maryland

    "Impossibly light, for the stability. Comfort beyond any expectation!"

    Jul 17, 2016

    Magnificence in Motion!

    - Carlisle, PA

    "The New Balance 847v2 fits and supports exactly as advertised. We love it! And we have already recommended the shoe to a friend and fellow fitness walker."

    Jul 15, 2016

    The Standard of Excellence

    - Houghton, Michigan

    "I'm a 46 yr old Male with type 2 Diabetes, & recently, had Heart Valve Replacement Surgery. Getting back on a workout schedule at a local gym, my Physicians all said "you need a good foundation, don't skimp on shoes. I have bought 2 pair per year for a few years. One pair Strickly for gym use, the other for everyday wear. Your getting a Superior product for a fair price. Don't settle for anything less than the best. You don't have to look any further."

    Jul 10, 2016 to us...redesign 847v2...Please!

    - Jupiiter, FL

    "We have been loyal NB customers for years and years and this latest redesign was the biggest disappointment ever. Our feet seemed to shift forward so that our toes jammed inside and the tongue shifted to the outside making the fit most uncomfortable. Both the men's and women's footwear require a redesign. I can't say anything positive about this 847v2...please...release v3.0!!!!"

    Jun 26, 2016

    Excellent walking shoe

    - Folsom, CA

    "Like the fit and style of the New Balance shoes. They come in wide and size 13"

    Jun 26, 2016

    New 847'v2 model sizing runs tighter than original 847's

    - Cocoa Beach, FL

    "I was disappointed with the reduced sizing of the 847v2 shoe compared to the original 847. I ordered both the white & gray versions & saw this in both.( size 13 6e ). The width & length are both smaller in the new model. Styling has been improved but comfort has been compromised. I am sad about this result."

    Jun 26, 2016

    Bad design

    - Littleton, Colorado

    "Inside of both heels came apart in less than two months. Bad design, was told by new balance the shoe is not made to wear with cotton socks."

    Jun 17, 2016

    Comfortable but I had a problem

    - Rancho Palos Verdes, Ca

    "Seem to fit OK but when I was walking steep downhill it seemed like my feet slipped forward and jammed my toes. Toe still hurts one week later. Toe feels OK while I am wearing my old GR928. I'm going to try again with them when toe feels better. These shoes feel lighter and cooler and softer than the 928 (where they no longer make the gray ones)."

    Jun 17, 2016

    Light comfort fashion

    - Denver, CO

    "I've enjoyed my daily walks & errand runnings while wearing the 847v2. Hopefully they will hold up as well as my 828's have. The look of the 847v2 in gray allows me to also were the shoe w/ casual pants or sweats."

    Jun 14, 2016

    Previous models with the same number were better

    - delray beach, florida

    "OK. the older model (847) was more comfortable then this one I purchased. It may be the last New balance I purchase"

    Jun 11, 2016

    Very comfortable sneaker!

    - Rochester, NY

    "Stylish sneaker; very comfortable and functional. Only thing is the laces are a little short, could use another inch or two. Made in the USA is a plus."

    Jun 10, 2016

    They are more than I expected.

    - Russellville, KY 42276, USA

    "I have worn New Balance shoes for many years and because I bought ahead, I did not need to order. When I ordered, I only got one pair to check the new type out. Boy was I surprised. They are better than I could hope for."

    Jun 10, 2016

    Shoes squeek.

    - Walnut Creek, CA

    "shoes loudly squeek with each step I take. This is not accceptable."

    Jun 8, 2016

    Exactly what I needed.

    - Grapeland, TX 75844, USA

    "At my age - 81 - foot weaknesses become a problem. NB running shoes helped, but this shoe does a great job of supporting my feet during farm work."

    Jun 1, 2016

    Recntly purchased a pair of 847v2 walking shoes. The product is terrific and the online purchase was flawless

    - Monroe, MI

    "Recently purchased a pair of 847v2 health walking shoes the product is terrific. The online purchase was flawless and the product arrived timely"

    May 23, 2016

    Great looking shoe.

    - North Carolina, USA

    "Very comfortable walking shoe. I ordered 1/2 larger than normal and it is snug fit."

    May 16, 2016

    Product as stated.

    - Arizona, USA

    "Bought these shoes online, first purchase, size was as stated and quality"

    May 16, 2016

    These shoes are the most comfortable in my collection, and good looking.

    - Sacramento, CA, USA

    "Compared to many New Balance running shoes I have used over many years of jogging and walking, this model is amazingly comfortable, easy to put on, resistant to water damage, and good looking. I look forward to years of great use from them."

    May 14, 2016

    Excellent for walking and lightweight.

    - Fairfield, CA, USA

    "This product comes in wide widths and is breathable. The shoes are lighter than most walking shoes."

    May 13, 2016

    Very Comfortable for walking.

    - Vero Beach, FL, USA

    "Just love these shoes. They are easy to get on and off. Well padded and great for walking."

    May 9, 2016

    The most comfortable and supportive shoes I own, well aside from my 877's.

    - Rancho Cucamonga, CA, USA

    "I love the support, the breath-ability but most of all the look."

    May 4, 2016

    Been wearing NB (9.5)s for years .. But

    - Johnson City TN 37601

    "These were not true to size, Maybe due to all the added cushioning my toes bottomed out bad, And I would recommend ordering a 1/2 size larger! I had to send my 9.5s back due to shooting pain in my toes bottoming out. Also the New Balance® 888 High Top Basketball Shoe was the best shoe I have ever worn, And of coarse those have been discontinued!"

    May 2, 2016


    - Madison, WI, USA

    "The shoes are very comfortable. The only drawback was not being able to use my inserts which did fit in 928V2 shoe."

    May 1, 2016

    I like the shoes.

    - Monroe, MI, USA

    "I like the shoes however they run very very small. I normally wear a size 9 wide and with New Balance I wear a 10.5 double wide. Also Wearing these shoes to long seems to bother my large toes but I am not sure if this is a fitting issue or the design of the shoe. I have decide to go to Binsons medical supply and get properly fitted by an expert and let my insurance cover the new shoes at 100% because I've already met my max out pocket for the year."

    May 1, 2016

    Not as good as the original version. I liked the original version better and used it several years

    - Houston, TX, USA

    "The padding around the heel needs to be tapered so that the thickness gradually diminishes to a minimum at the low point."

    Apr 30, 2016

    Fit different from earlier version .

    - Brooklyn, NY, USA

    "I went up 1/2 size and its OK but still not as good a former model for me."

    Apr 30, 2016

    Not the same as 847

    - Metairie, LA

    "This version of the 847 shoe is not quite the same thing. The toe area seems tighter than the earlier version."

    Apr 5, 2016

    Found shoe to be too small (too short) even after ordering up half a size.

    - Almont, MI 48003, USA

    "I ordered this shoe for my husband. First pair was way too short. No mention was made in description that shoe should be ordered larger than normal size. Returned shoe for exchange, ordered up half a size. Second pair arrived, also found to be too short. Returned second pair and decided not to reorder. Very disappointed. Usually I have no problem with NB shoes."

    Apr 2, 2016

    Wonderful walking show

    - Madison, WI, USA

    "I have been buying New Balance walking shoes for approximately 10 years and the fit is always great. I wear a 14B and these shoes are very comfortable and light weight. I even bought a pair of boat shoes two years ago and they are great too. The quality is always 100%."

    Mar 28, 2016

    Fit a little tight. Hope they will stretch with wear.

    - Oklahoma, USA

    "Fit a little tight. Hope they will stretch with wear."

    Mar 25, 2016

    Not suitable for me.

    - Tuckerton, NJ 08087, USA

    "I have been wearing NB for over 20 years, and I find that with every new product the fit moves away from earlier models in the wrong direction for my feet. I need extra toe room, a narrower heel, and have a high instep. This shoe is redesigned and does not provide enough width."

    Mar 25, 2016

    Attractive shoe but.............

    - Texas

    ".....unsure of long term comfort. My feet sometimes feel uncomfortable after a few hours of wear."

    Mar 17, 2016

    Shoe sizing

    - Boca Raton, Fla

    "the sneaker is good, but it seems the size I purchased (12 1/2-2E) is smaller than the last pair I acquired--is it possible the shoe size was mislabeled-If so, please let me know since I acquired 2 pairs and have not used the 2nd pair yet. Thank you, Charles Steinberg"

    Mar 17, 2016

    awesome walking shoe and fit was just as expected not to tight

    - Mystic, Stonington, CT, USA

    "really enjoy walking in these sneakers and the fit was just as expected"

    Mar 15, 2016

    Good comfort and ventilation

    - Goshen, CT

    "I use these shoes only at the gym. I have found them to be comfortable all the way around. Some shoes poke your foot in the eyelet area, this does not."

    Mar 9, 2016

    Great Product, comfortable fit

    - Minnesota

    "great product at a good price and good service. I would definitely recommend this product and company to friends."

    Mar 9, 2016

    Great shoe, but I was mis-sized

    - Texas

    "I went into the NB store and was talked into a 14. I went on line and ordered the 15 which is much better"

    Mar 6, 2016

    Good but ......

    - San Antonio, TX, USA

    "Shoes are very light yet very stable. I had the 847's and 876's before and liked them. I was disappointed when the new 847v2's never went on sale or had no promotions available, especially since there was no option to stay with the 847's I liked so much. Also, for such an expensive shoe I think the flat laces cheapen the strength and appearance and are too short."

    Feb 25, 2016

    The sizing doesn't work for me

    - Penn Valley, CA

    "I experienced a sizing problem with the current shoe. I had an older model which was great until it wore out. I returned/exchanged the first pair ordered because they seemed too short for my left foot. My left foot is 12 1/2 and the shoe is 13, yet my toes touched the end. This has never been true of my other New Balance shoes. Same way with the 2nd pair. I kept them and crossed my fingers that I don't develop a soreness problem with them."

    Feb 15, 2016

    New Balance 847v2

    - New Jersey

    "This rating would have been 5 stars, except the "D" width is tight. I take "D" width all the time and this is too tight."

    Feb 7, 2016

    This shoe is except able and definitely wearable.

    - Wetumpka AL

    "I bought a pair of 847v2 a couple of years ago. They were outstanding. Fit was the greatest. Shoe laces were excellent in length. I really enjoyed them. Needed a new pair this month. The new pair is not as long nor as wide even though both pair are the same size numerically. Long and wide enough but not as comfortable as the other pair but smaller for sure. Laces are definitely shorter. Haven't measured the different in length but I'm sure they are at least 2 or 3 inches shorter. Almost too short to be comfortable but OK."

    Jan 30, 2016

    squeak, squeak

    - Houston

    "I have had a number of pairs of this model over the past few years and, in general, I've been satisfied. However, the latest pair has a noticeable squeak. The good news is that is seems to be getting better the more I ware them, but it is not something you'd expect in a shoe in this price range."

    Jan 13, 2016

    I found a 14 6E that feels good and looks good

    - Melbourne, FL, USA

    "Finding a size 14 show in extra wide (6E) is a challenge but these shoes fit the bill. Lightweight and comfortable. I wish there were more choices in this size."

    Jan 8, 2016

    The Best Walking Shoe Available!

    - Santa Monica, CA, USA

    "I take an unusual size, 15 B, and it's almost impossible to find a high quality walking shoe that will fit me. Well, this is it! I wish there were more variety in the color choices, but other than that, when these wear out I'll order another pair!"

    Dec 31, 2015

    Great comfort

    - Highlands Ranch, CO, USA

    "Best walking shoes I have ever had. I added the insert 1200 and that really helped. The only issue I had was the shoe strings in my opinion were to short. I had to go out and buy a longer pair."

    Dec 29, 2015

    Overall good shoe but doesn't meet my specific needs.

    - New London, CT, USA

    "I have to wear orthotics and the padded shoe tongue REALLY makes it difficult to tie shoe laces so they stay knotted."

    Dec 29, 2015


    - Brooklyn, NY, USA

    "They are very comfortable Shoes. I would recommend them."

    Dec 28, 2015


    - New Orleans, LA.

    "I've owned several pairs, and the overall quality appears to be declining. I probably will not purchase another pair."

    Dec 17, 2015

    Comfortability that doesn't last.

    - Seattle, WA

    "While the support and fit are great, they simply do not last. After one month of daily wear at work walking on average five miles per day, the lining at the heel on the inside began to separate. This may be due to the fit at the heel, which – despite several types of different lacing techniques – is not up to the task of preventing heel slip."

    Dec 14, 2015

    Limited Choice

    - Houston, TX

    "I don't understand why New Balance feels it can only produce AA shoes in only a few colors or outdated styles!"

    Dec 10, 2015

    Great for walking / workout

    - Woodbridge, CT, USA

    "I have had a pair of New Balance Walking shoes for many years and have been reluctant to let them go because they are so comfortable. The 848 is just as comfortable with just the right amount of support."

    Nov 21, 2015

    Not Good For Over Pronation

    - Tracy, CA, USA

    "This shoe does not have the proper support for feet that over pronate. When you put the shoe on, you can see that it turns inward causing your ankles to roll inward even more. They may work with my custom orthotics, but the shoe does not work as is."

    Nov 19, 2015

    As Described

    - Las Cruces, NM

    "I was surprised to find this model much stiffer in construction than previous models of walking shoes that I had tried. Still comfortable, and as described a little larger fit than the size would suppose."

    Nov 11, 2015

    Very comfortable never hard on my feet. I really enjoy walking now.

    - ticonderoga

    "True to size. I notice when I walk that little pebbles & tiny rocks don't get inside my sneakers. I don't how this happens but anyway Great !"

    Nov 10, 2015

    This is the worst NB shoe I have ever owned.

    - Golden, CO

    "I have been wearing New Balance shoes for my workouts exclusively since 1970. Without question, the 847 is by far the worst shoe NB has ever produced. I tried for six months off and on to break them in and finally gave up. In addition to the poor performance, the shoe laces manage to come untied, even when double-knotted. Buyer beware!"

    Nov 9, 2015

    The shoes are comfortable but run short.

    - San Diego, CA, USA

    "The only thing keeping me from giving this product five stars is that they run short and New Balance should plainly say so. I normally wear a 10 1/2 but had to return the first pair for a size 11. Since receiving the second pair of shoes, I have been walking 3-4 miles four times a week on a concrete sidewalk. The shoes have alleviated the heel pain I had been experiencing. Overall, the shoes are comfortable and are pretty much what I was looking for."

    Nov 8, 2015

    This is the worst NB product I have ever purchased

    - Middletown CT

    "The fit was terrible. Smaller then other NB products of the same size. Does not feel supportive. The insert is thin with little arch support. The insert material separated from the foam. I hope that NB gets back to good quality and fit. Way to expensive for this product."

    Oct 28, 2015

    Poor appearance.

    - Alexandria, VA, USA

    "Second pair of shoes are fine. Prompt response to my complaint. But why the quality lapse to being with? First pair looked like shoes those from a low-end factory outlet."
