The New Balance MW956 walking shoe is tough enough for rainstorms and snowy city streets and cool enough for casual Fridays. This women's walking shoe features a leather and mesh upper with GORE-TEX® waterproof protection and a gusseted tongue to keep debris out. ABZORB® cushioning lends lasting comfort and absorbs shock, while the Ndurance® non-marking rubber outsole provides reliable traction in the New Balance 956 athletic shoe.
We live out in the country and this is the only shoe (that I found) that will withstand walking on a gravel road and in wet grass. I walk in the morning so there is always dew on the grass so I needed a shoe that was waterproof so my feet wouldn't get wet while I was walking. These shoes are also good on gravel. You don't feel like you are walking on gravel. Some shoes you can feel the stones through the shoe bottom.
I LOVE these shoes! I needed something to keep my feet dry every morning when I walk with the dog through a dew-soaked field. These shoes are not only comfortable, but my feet and socks stay bone dry the whole walk!
First I ordered a size larger than normal because I had read that other shoes by this maker run small. Not so with this shoe, however, because the arch support was beyond my arch, so I exchanged it for my regular size. The medium width is fine with socks and/or tights for cool weather. I bought this shoe for walking in mountainous terrain and in a large hotel complex where I was to attend a seminar. The shoe, which was a bit stiff at first, performed its function well in varied terrains. My plantar fascietis has seemed to improve over the several weeks I have worn this shoe on a daily basis. It's been a good investment for my feet.
This shoe is very well made. I wear an 8.5D and the shoe runs just a bit narrow so I returned them. If the shoe came wider I would have reordered because they fit what I was looking for-- well made, leather for long life, attractive even on wider feet. My orthodics fit well with the depth of heel and instep shape.
