    The shoe has some great features but has significant durability and construction flaws

    "This shoe's durability and construction materials have issues, after about a year the shoe begins to fall apart on the lower outer sole opposite the arch. The foam cushion and the bottom rubber just fall apart. My dilemma here is I really like this shoe because keeps my feet from overpronating and it's comfortable yet its significant lack of durability limits the shoes life. I have spent a significant sum money for this for this to have happened 3 times on 3 pairs of this specific style of shoe."

    "I purchased both the Pink Ribbon and the blue version of the 847 at the same time. The blue version fit like all my previous purchases, but the Pink Ribbon shoe was shorter and more narrow. Very disappointing and now I am not sure what to do other than return it! The reviews are all different, with different concerns."

    "Purchased my size off of another New Balance shoe, was HUGE. Returned for smaller size, they fit, but seams inside rubbed the sides of my feet. I had the right size and a wide fit, just poorly designed and awkward."

    A shoe that allows me to walk!

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "I don't understand the poor ratings on this shoe and the complaints of lack of cushioning. The description states that this is a 'motion control' shoe, so if you need lots of cushion look elsewhere. Otherwise, the cushion in this shoe is fine. The shoe has some stiffness (as it should) and is perfect for my problem foot which has arthritis, a bunion and neuroma. I've learned over the past few months that a softer shoe makes these problems worse but a firmer shoe keeps my foot in correct position and allows me to once again go walking with my dog. Also, a really nice feature is the small drop from heel to forefoot. Soooooo nice not to feel like I'm walking on my toes! The shoe last is an SL-2, which has a narrow heel, with a wider and deeper toe box. For me, I find the shoe last perfect for my custom orthotics since I don't have to remove the existing liner, but for someone wanting a lot of built-in arch support I think you'll find it lacking. These shoes don't fit like running shoes and I found my heel moving up/down while trying it in the store. The salesperson explained that it was due to the stiffness of the sole and as I broke them in that would disappear. He was correct.......after a week I don't notice it anymore. Anyone interested in buying these shoes should read the positive reviews of the non-Komen 847. Same shoe.....different color."

    this is a great shoe for overpronators who need to wear orthotics

    "I bought the Komen 847 several months ago in a narrow size 2A and it fits my foot great and I like the wide toebox as I wear custom orthotics, and this shoe model works so well. It is so hard to find a shoe that accomodates my orthotics. I just remove the insole and place my orthotics inside. I especially like the straight last this shoe is designed upon. So many shoes have too much of a curved shoe last and that is not good for over pronators. So keep making this shoe, and I will continue buying from NB in the future. Yes I would reccommend this shoe, especially to over pronators that need to wear orhtoics."
