I have been reviewing and testing walking shoes quite a bit lately. It recently came to my attention that doctors were recommending the New Balance MW-926 walking shoes to their patients who had foot problems or considerations. I further read that they were extremely well made. So, on Saturday morning I took off to study them myself at the local New Balance store. As I took them off the shelf the first thing that hit my eyes was the overall quality. The bottom sole feels and looks extremely durable. Much more so than others I have seen. The overall quality of this shoe speaks in volumes. I tried on a pair as comfort is extremely important as we all know. I thought they were quite awesome feeling on my feet. I pulled out the inner sole to check to see how it was made and the thickness etc. It was better than what comes with the athletic shoes that I have seen. I would still replace the inner soles however with the New Balance sports cushion ones. Please see my review on them. This is one of the best pair of walking shoes I have seen so far. I also want to mention that they are not for sale at a cheap price at the New Balance stores. They were selling for 115.00 on this holiday weekend. I decided to try shoebuy.com and after discounts I ended up blowing away the price above and got them for 66.00!!! I am still in shock over the difference in price. Anyway they are a very nice pair of shoes.
