New Balance 847v2

(reg )
Walking on the moon? No, but the 847v2 will take your walk to a whole new level thanks to the total inner comfort of OrthoLite foam throughout the collar. And the rest of your foot will glide weightlessly on the stability of the ROLLBAR midsole and ABZORB cushioning.

This shoe runs small. We suggest ordering a 1/2 size up.

    "I bought these shoes so I can stand around for several hours in my retail job. They are comfortable. I wear a wide and the fit seems weird with the big toe, but is otherwise good. They have never hurt my feet and I can stand around comfortably."

    Shoes are a good fit

    - Anniston, AL

    "I chose the shoes because my orthotics will fit in them. They are a good fit for my 2AA width. I have a narrow heel and they fit my 5A heel without slipping up and down."

    "This is the 3rd pair of the 847v2 walking sneakers that I have had and have been nothing but pleased. I have prescribed orthodics and this is the one shoe that I have used them in that gives nothing but comfort. I've worn other New Balance and couldn't complain about any of them, but this one beats them all."

    More narrow in the toe box.

    - Charlotte NC

    "Very disappointed. I have been a purchaser of the 847 line for some time. I replace about every 6 months, walking several miles each week. The old model 847KM was wider in the toe box and that was one of the claims to fame for that model. Great for the wide foot and for people with neuro problems I really do not like the new 847v2. Bring back the wider toe box!!!!"

    "I love the way these look on my feet, love the gray and pink color. But the padding in the collar is downright excessive and ruins the fit of the shoe. The puffy part behind the ankle pushed my foot too far forward. I ended up returning them due to fit and part of that was the puffy rear part of the ankle collar."

    Excellent foot support, seems to run small

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "I always buy New Balance. I love these particular shoes for the stability. That said, the style is slightly different from my last pair. My feet haven't grown and I find my toes bumping against the end of the shoe with this pair. I would have to bump up a full size from an 11 to a 12 and I fear those would be too big, so I am going to make due. I'm not sure I'll buy this particular NB style again if I can't try them on before buying them. (Not many stores in my area carry above size 10.)"

    Nov 6, 2016

    Very comfortable shoe

    "I ordered these shoes online. Although I ordered the same size as the ones that I have, the pink/grey ones seemed to run a little short. The manager told me that some times the dye in the colored shoes makes them run a little smaller and they DO state on their website that they run small. Overall they are an excellent shoe."

    Do not buy this shoe

    "This shoe is horrible. It was like wearing a brick. No cushion whatsoever. Do not buy this shoe if you hate pain! Shoe laces are too short for an orthopedic shoe. My orthotics fit fine but the laces could not be tied. Awful shoe."

    "These used to be my favorite walking shoes of all time. Now they put so much padding around the heel Nd ankle they feel like you're walking in clown shoes. They also break down much more easily than they used to. I'd love if NB went back to the design of 3 years ago."

    Still Great!

    Great shoe

    "These are the MOST comfortable shoes I have ever worn. They give a little spring to your step and feel light and fantastic. Usually I buy a 9D, but ordered a size larger because the reviews said they run short, but they were too long and threw off my gait. So I ordered a size 9D and they are a little shorter than I am used to, although my toes do hit the end of the shoe going downhill, it is not bothersome. Highly recommended!"

    Not exactly what I expected

    - Miami

    MyNB Gold Member

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "The write up on the product is similar to the 1540v2 and indicates similar support, however I found that there is not the support I expected as the side tends to roll with the foot and the sole is far less sturdy. The she is softer and OK for short walks but far from what I would feel safe with if on a longer walk or hike. at 80 years of age, it is important to have the support and balance assistance of the better shoe."

    hleps walking and balance

    - upstate New York

    MyNB Silver Member

    MyNB members may earn NB points for writing product reviews

    "I have over pronation and New Balance was the shoe recommended by my doctor. For years they have been my shoe of choice to use my orthotics in and with the research done by your company, the 847v2 is the best yet. For anyone with this problem, there can't be too much mesh as it stretches and the shoes go of shape quickly. The material in the center seems to take care of this for me, helps my feet stay in place and shows a considerable difference in my balance. I also find that the roller bar is a must for this foot problem."

    Dependable fit

    - Mundelein, IL

    "I wear size 10 narrow and have a difficult time finding a show that fits properly. I can always depend on these shoes to fit and feel good, and now New Balanxe has added some color. Makes my fitness class a little more fun!"

    Extremely disappointed in these, which replaced the 847

    - Elmira Heights, NY 14903, USA

    "Runs very small; the wide does not seem as wide as the 847. Ordered 1/2 size larger and is still not as comfortable"

    Jun 12, 2016

    This product had good features

    - Sanford, Mi

    "This shoe used to be great. Roomy, comfortable,and great stabilizing support. Then, you changed them. Now they hurt my feet and they aren't as roomy. The laces are too short too. They do stabile my feet so I can't fault that. Change them back."

    Comfortable waking shoes!

    Loved the shoes

    Walking shoes for trip.

    - Gresham, OR, USA

    "Bought these shoes especially for a trip I was taking and was going to be on my feet a lot. I absolutely love them, they were true to form, comfortable, light weight, and supportive. The only negative thing I can say about them is the shoe laces are the kind that do not hold well. I always double knot mine and they kept coming untied. But that is an easy fix by buying different shoe laces. Other then that, love em."

    Jun 2, 2016

    Shoes are somewhat being comfortable. Sizes run smaller than actual size

    - Augusta, GA, USA

    "Would return if it wasnt an hassle to do so. Would be perfect if sizes didnt run too small. Comfortable shoe but order 2 sizes bigger instead of one."

    change not good

    - Sedro-Woolley, WA 98284, USA

    "I have been wearing NB 847's for years. The change 847v2 was for comfort but the softer collar around the ankle breaks down faster. This time the top of the heal hits me in a different spot and have cause a callus on my upper heal. I like the old model much better."

    May 25, 2016

    Great sneakers

    - Stillwater, NJ

    "My Dr. has always recommended New Balance. These sneakers are awesome. They have the comfort I expect, the stability I need and the cushion I need. The only thing I'm not crazy about are the laces. They are nylon and tend to come untied. I will be buying new cotton laces shortly to replace them. Otherwise, super great sneaker!"

    May 25, 2016

    Love these shoes!

    - Troy, MI, USA

    "A few years ago I got my first pair of New Balance Walkers. Now they are the only walking shoe I'll wear. I have nerve damage in my feet, caused by pinched nerves, which make it painful to walk/stand. Not with these shoes. There's enough cushioning and support to let me live my life. I like that I can remove the inner sole to clean. Perfect when I've been wearing them for long periods of time. The construction of these shoes is top notch too. My original pair still look good. Best shoes ever!"

    May 24, 2016

    This product is cushioned in just the right spots.

    - Canton, OH, USA

    "I love the shoe for comfort and looks. I was looking for a shoe to wear on a challenging, walking vacation later this summer. I am sure it will make the grade since I have had no problems."

    These shoes are awesome!

    Runs TOO small

    - Elmira, NY

    "I have worn the 847 for several years now, very pleased until the new version, 847v2 came out. As a USPS letter carrier needless to say I get plenty of walking. Never had to "break in" the original. The 847v2 runs VERY short and even with ordering the wide width is extremely tight. Also do not like the laces as they won't stay tied unless they are double knotted. Can't return them as I've worn them too much, trying to break them in. Will try once more to order in a larger size before giving up on them. Miss the old 847 SO MUCH!!!!!"

    May 12, 2016


    - California

    "This shoe is one of the most comfortable everyday shoes I've ever had. Have ordered them more than once and will order again. 847v"

    May 10, 2016

    Very Comfy

    - Pleasanton, CA, USA

    "Runs short. I typically wear a size 6 in NB. I read the reviews before purchase and saw some comments about the shoe running small so I ordered a size 6 1/2. Too small, so I ordered a size 7 and it fits. I don't have one pair of shoes that is a size 7, except for this pair of course. It was super easy to return the other pair. My 928's were a size 6 and 2 years old, so I was due. Decided to try the 847v2, I have very picky feet and have had no problems since the day I put them on...."

    - Jacksonville, FL

    "I find these shoes excellent for walking for a senior."

    May 3, 2016

    shouldn't have changed the original 847 which was much better!

    - New Hampshire

    "I loved the 847 - I have a long, narrow foot and it was one of the few sneakers I've ever found that actually fit width wise. I'm an 11N. For whatever reason, the new 847v2 11N was too short. It doesn't come in half sizes over 11, so had to jump to the 12N which was acceptable lengthwise but TOO WIDE. So depressed, had to return them, no longer have a sneaker that fits..."

    Great New Balance shoes.

    - Beaver City, NE 68926, USA

    "I had polio at age 2 so 2 different size shoes are need. I am very particular about my shoes. I have to have good arch support and these shoes do that. I like a shoe that maybe is a little stylish. I am on my feet a lot and these shoes work well. I sometimes send my odd shoes to places for people with one limb. So, thank you."

    Apr 30, 2016

    Happy with product

    - Dewey-Humboldt, AZ, USA

    "Good, except for the shoestrings. They are too thin."

    Your shoes are no longer true to size.

    - New York State

    "I have a difficult size to find. I have been purchasing, with satisfaction from you sight, but in the past year your sizing of New Balance shoes are not "true to size". Very disappointed."

    Mar 24, 2016

    Love them!

    - Denver, CO, USA

    "I love these shoes. The rollbar is great for stabilizing my knees and ankles. The cushioned tongue is also more comfortable than a regular tongue. This is my third pair of this model and I will continue to purchase them in the future! I just wish they came in more fun colors."

    Mar 16, 2016

    not wide enough

    - Mattapoisett Ma USA

    "I have a very wide foot and usually 8 WW fits fine. This shoe was narrower and I could barely squeeze my foot in. On the plus side I liked the feel of the inside of the shoe, could wear without socks and the grey was really nice looking"

    Mar 12, 2016

    Best shoes for me

    - Texas, USA

    Well built shoe, but not for me.

    - Ohio

    "The strike path is very firm. Too much for this walker. Caused calf pain, cramps and knee pain. I was unable to make lateral movements. Excellent customer service in returning this shoe."

    Feb 16, 2016

    The inside at right heel was lower on one side than the other.

    - Houston, TX, USA

    "The workmanship was poor and the shoe was sized smaller that the usual size 10, and I have had many pairs of NB shoes."

    Feb 16, 2016

    second version not as comfortable as original

    - St. Louis, MO, USA

    "The 847v2 is not as light weight as the original 847 and the heel of the right shoe slips in this second version. :("

    Feb 12, 2016

    Great Shoe!

    - Chambersburg, PA

    "The 847's are awesome. They are the only ones that don't hurt my feet, and I hope they never stop making them."

    Feb 11, 2016

    Comfort & support for wide feet

    - New Jersey, USA

    "I have the WORST feet: Bunions, Wide, weak arches, etc. The toe box is not just perfectly wide (I wear EE), but also really deep (SL2). The collar is extremely padded, which I like, and when I lace it to the top, does not dig into my ankle like some shoes do. Quality and comfort. I may buy like four more pairs because every time I like a NB sneaker they stop making it!"

    So Comforable

    These Boots Feel Great!

    - Mill Valley, CA, USA

    "I do trail hiking in a hilly area every weekend, so I need a sturdy pair of boots. I also have "difficult to fit" feet. I wore these boots around the house for a few hours to "break them in" and then went for an 8 mile hike on a steep, rocky, wet trail. My feet felt great afterwards, and the boots took the punishment of the trail. The product description says that these boots feel like shoes. They really do!"

    Feb 9, 2016

    Comfy and stable

    - Palm Desert, CA, USA

    "I really likes the soft cushion around the achilles & the arch support. I like to walk a lot and this shoe provides good stability without feeling like "too much" shoe."

    Feb 6, 2016

    Not an improvement over 847

    - Portland, OR

    "I've worn the shoes in this series for many years. 847v2 was not comfortable on first wearing, unlike the previous models, and is still not quite comfortable after long walks. It is cut lower overall, so someone with a high arch/instep will find it less comfortable. The loose heel problem can be solved by using the last eyelet, but then the laces are very short. Some else noted that the shoe has an "elderly" appearance, and that is true - the photo on the website was posed and lit "just so", but this shoe doesn't look sporty or athletic. I will be looking for a different New Balance model next time - too bad."

    Feb 3, 2016

    Very comfortable shoe

    - Colorado, USA

    "Wearing this shoe improves my gait and balance. It is a stylist shoe. I especially like the new two tone grey."

    Feb 1, 2016

    I love this shoe!

    - Florida

    "This must be the new version of the 847. I have problem feet so it works well for me. The new padding was a nice surprise and The narrow width is very comfy. I wear this shoe almost all the time."

    Jan 31, 2016

    Excellent motion control and fitness walking shoe

    Comfortable and aids with heel pain

    - Philadelphia area

    "comfortable shoes, helps heel pain immensely and no other shoe did, even though I tried many"

    Jan 26, 2016

    Great shoes with lots of padding!

    - Mineral Point, WI

    "This is my second pair of these shoes, the padding is wonderful. My foot doctor said to get some good supportive shoes with padding, I found these in a store and tried them on, Wow! My feet didn't hurt. I wore my first pair after my foot surgery everyday for 7 months and just got a second pair as the first ones were dirty from all the wear. I wore them everywhere, camping, shopping, and the toe room is good. Well worth trying if you need comfortable shoes!"

    Jan 21, 2016

    Has style and comfort

    - Alexandria, VA

    "This is my second purchase of this same shoe. I like the fit and the style."
