The New Balance 813 has more to offer for its long-time users. As a newer version of the very-loved 812, this health walking shoe retains a smooth ride with good motion control. It applies more supportive cushioning of a lightweight foam midsole. Around the shoe, there is the plush comfort of a soft collar and supple leather upper.
As many will do, users tend to look into the New Balance 928 or 847 for walking shoes, especially when they have foot issues, or need a good supportive shoe for long hours of constant walking and standing. These New Balance walking shoes all share a fairly good reputation and users can feel the obvious improvement brought by these shoes.
Compared to the 928v3or 847v2, the 813 is less-athletic looking, more leisure and urban style. The leather uppers come with nice finish and plain simple colors for men and women. Many wearers appreciate the practicality as they feel good and also look good when wearing in less casual occasions.
The shoe runs a bit smaller and tighter. The shoe is in general a great walking shoe with only one downfall, which is a smaller toe box than it used to be. However, the shoe offers up to 4E in width and can accommodate wide feet well.
The 81 comes in leather and textile uppers with a range of nice colorways available. In and around the shoe is well padded with plush collar and foam midsole which offers lightweight and supportive cushioning
The shoe also applies Rollbar® technology, which prevents the foot from rolling inward, providing excellent support for those with severe overpronation while severe supination (rolling outward) is also controlled.
