    Comments about New Balance Women's WW812 Hook and Loop Health Walking Shoe:

    I didn't mark durable because I haven't had them that long to know. But the first time I wore them they were comfortable. No breaking in necessary. Our house borders a railroad track and so there is a slight hill with rocks and branches. Our dog loves to go there and beyond to the corn field. I was impressed they passed that test.

      Comments about New Balance Women's WW812 Hook and Loop Health Walking Shoe:

      My doctor recommended New Balance sneakers many years ago and I have been wearing them ever since. Besides being very supportive to my feet (flat feet, plantar faciatis) I appreciate the fact that they come with the hook and loop closure. I have had surgery on my back and cannot bend all the way over to tie shoes, so the hook and loop is very convenient for me. I buy these same sneakers every time I need new ones (every 6 months).

          I have to walk three times a week for 30 minutes at a time for exercise, doctor's orders. My old New Balance were hurting my feet. Now that I am 71 years old found my feet have gotten wider. I've been wearing size 12 M since 12 years of age. Now, for comfort, I find I need size 13 M and these New Balance fit the bill! They are very comfortable, my toes don't get scrunched together, and walking even 3 miles in them I am very comfortable and free of pain.

          Comments about New Balance Women's WW812 Hook and Loop Health Walking Shoe:

          Love the idea of straps in place of shoestrings. However I found the upper strap is too short. I have high arches and because of it have to tighten the strap almost to the point discomfort in order to fasten it. Why do they make it so short?
          Also, I find the padding for the ball of the foot is a bit lacking. I wouldn't jog or try to run with these because of it...stick to walking. As long as you can secure the straps comfortably, they are perfect for that and wearing around the house.
          Otherwise I do like them. I'm a big guy, 6'3" and the size of a defensive tackle, so I'd buy something else for jogging and running.

            walk a couple of miles during week and needed a more supportive shoe and a better arch support. I purchased these because of the roll bar and claim of reducing pronation. I also purchased 1/2 size larger because I wear padded socks. Wore shoes around house several hours on day of arrival. Extremely disappointed. Although they are lightweight and soft, I am returning the shoes because they are not supportive, run short and appear to be cheaply made.

                Comments about New Balance Women's WW812 Hook and Loop Health Walking Shoe:

                I needed a shoes to support my foot and to take the strain off of my worn out knees. These have done that for me. Wide enough, yet supportive and helps me keep a stable stride so I can walk freely and comfortably. I wish they had more color than just the white and that the Velcro straps were a bit longer as I have to go to the end of the strap to slide them on. I am sure the straps will break in and continue to make this a great supportive show for me.

                  Ordered largest size, 11. Too small. would be nice if shoe was 1/2 larger. Great appearance & I think would be very comfortable for walking if it was in larger sizes.
