Shoppers in their 60s say these walking shoes are so comfortable, they are 'perfect for my 68-year-old feet'

Every day, I have a rolling routine of going for an evening walk to decompress after sitting behind a desk all day. I didn't really believe the claim that walking can help improve your mood until I got this practice going, but after a few months, I realized that these experts may be onto something. The thing is, walking out the door is only half the battle, though. The other half is making sure you have a comfortable pair of shoes that's supportive, lightweight and keeps those aches and pains at bay. And, based on shoppers in their 60s, these New Balance walking shoes are the ones they reach for the most.

These comfy sneakers come in four widths (standard, narrow, wide and extra-wide) and a massive range of sizes: 5 to 12 extra-wide.

The New Balance 877 V1 Walking Shoe has over 4,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, and, based on what shoppers in their 60s say about them, we understand why they're so beloved. "This is the most perfect athletic shoe I've ever purchased and I'm 65," one impressed shopper wrote before adding that they have the "perfect fit, price, comfort" and they go with just about everything in their closet.

You can choose between two colors—the silver option above and a black and pink combo that is currently out of stock. The care instructions are also charming, and they couldn't be simpler since these sneakers are machine washable. When they get dirty, just toss them in the washing machine and let them air dry. They'll be as good as new!

Also, since these New Balance sneakers have a rubber sole, they won't feel clunky or heavy while you're walking, making them perfect for morning and evening strolls, jogging, or sightseeing during your upcoming summer vacation.

Speaking of being light on your feet, remember The Flinstones? One reviewer said these shoes are so lightweight, "My feet are like Freddy Flinstone." Talk about a specific comparison that we immediately understood!

"My toes are very similar in height, and my toes are wider than my feet," the same shopper added. "So, [I] always have to wear shoes that have a 'box' toe. The 887 V1s are perfect for my 68-year-old feet. Light to wear, so comfortable and I enjoy wearing them."

Also, if you've tried tons of walking shoes time and time again only to be disappointed by their weight, comfort level, or sizing options, you're not alone. Another shopper said she's been in the same boat and was relieved to have found these gems.

"Tried so many others previously," the ecstatic shopper said. "My feet feel great in these after a long shift on my feet. [I] simply love these and will keep ordering. Please don't change these. My 60-year-old feet need these."

We know that $100 is an investment for most, but one walking shoe is really all that you need. And, based on shoppers' reviews, once you've found the one that you like, there's no need to buy another. Snag these popular New Balance walking shoes now while all sizes are still in stock!

The shoe's upper is made of 100% suede and mesh for extra breathability, especially in the warmer months.
