Most Helpful Customer Reviews
New Balance sells these shoes specifically for walking. I received the shoes 4 weeks ago. They are stylish, fit well and are comfortable to walk in. I walk approximately 3 miles at a time 3 times a week. After approximately 25 miles of walking, the inside top part of the shoe near the ankle is tearing apart. Walking causes this part of the shoe to flex as you step on your heal first and then roll to your toe. There is a nylon or plastic piece inside that cuts through as the shoe flexes. This is the second pair of New Balance "walking" shoes I've had (the other pair were NB 646) that have failed in the same manner. Ultimately this failure will appear on both the inside and outside of both shoes. The last pair had 4 places that came apart after approx 5 months. I contacted New Balance today. They agreed to replace the shoes with another pair, if 1. I send the shoes to them for evaluation. 2. Only after this evaluation, they would replace the shoes if found defective.
I love these sneakers. New Balance has always been the best fitting sneaker for my large wide feet and by far the most durable. This will be the second pair of 606's I've had and I hope that they never get rid of them. I wear them every day, all day, for work in the outdoors. They are constantly abused, covered in dirt and mud, soaked in water, and they hold together longer than any other inexpensive yet comfortable sneaker I can find. And since they are brown, they never look dirty! It's a perfect fit!
I've been walking in these shoes for six months now and find them to be very comfortable. New Balance is just about the only shoemaker out there that makes shoes wide enough for me and I've worn their running/cross training shoes for years. This is the first pair of walking shoes I've tried and I particularly like the extra room in the toes. My feet are very happy at the end of the day.
