Best New Balance Walking Shoes for 2017

New Balance walking shoes are a great choice because you can find a good selection of styles, sizes and widths.

New Balance has invested a lot of resources into their walking shoes line to create styles that meet every type of need. They’ve also incorporated many of their running shoe features, such as flexibility and cushioning, to create the most comfortable, lightweight shoe possible. They also come in a variety of sizes as well as narrow and wide widths to accommodate every foot size.

If you love the New Balance brand, then you won’t have trouble finding a great walking shoe. What is more important than the brand, though, is selecting the shoe type most appropriate for your foot. Shoe manufactures make three different types of shoes (neutral, stability and motion control) to accommodate your arch type and pronation level.

If you don’t know your arch type or pronation level, please take a minute to read this article on how to pick the best walking shoes. It is a step by step guide on how to determine which type of shoe your feet need.

After reading thousands of shoe reviews, it is easy to see that most of the time, when someone writes about how uncomfortable the shoe is, it is because they are wearing the wrong shoe type for their feet. And wearing the wrong shoe type creates all sorts of issues, including arch pain, heel pain, knee and back pain.

I’ve chosen the best rated New Balance walking shoes and sorted them by type so that once you determine whether you need a neutral, stability or motion control shoe, you can quickly select the best style for your feet.

If you are looking for a good pair of work shoes, walking shoes are a good choice because running shoes tend to cost more and you don’t need to pay for those features that a runner needs.
