          I bought these because the soles allow for orthopedic adjustments. I also wear specially made orthotics, but these shoes seem a little shallow.

                  Had a pair of reeboks forever - had even had them resoled. My husband wears NB and talked me into buying these. They also came in AA which very few walking shoes do.

                    Comments about New Balance Women's WW494 Walking Shoe:

                    Because of a long, narrow foot that requires a size 10 1/2, I have a very difficult time finding tennis shoes that fit. I bought these to use for just walking city streets or an occasional trail walk. I found them to be out-of-the-box comfortable. I am a New Balance convert.
