The shoe has an all mesh design to give it breathability and flexibility. But it also has supportive overlays for strength and support.

The heal and mid sole have ABZORB® technology This is a patented foam that takes and disperses foot compression forces so the walking experience is pleasant and comfortable.

N-durance Rubber Outsole 

The heal also has NDurance. This  is a rubber compound that wis used to provide maximum outsole durability.

Comfort Features 

The tongue and collar of the 665 are padded for extra comfort and as mentioned earlier, the shoe features Imeva Supportive cushioned midsole Andabsorb forefoot cushioning.

The outer sole design has nice wide treads to deal with wet and dry walking conditions alike.

All in all the New Balance 665 women’s walking shoe is a great fit for the active walker, whether it is for a fitness program or those long walks on a travel excursion.

 It is a great lightweight walking shoe that is great for the neutral to under-pronator.

Added Benefit – Susan G. Komen For The Cure Shoe

A portion of the proceeds of the New Balance 665 goes to the Susan G. Komen For The Cure foundation which is a foundation for the education and research for breast cancer.

So while you walk in your 665s you are also helping in the process of dealing with a devastating disease.


On amazon there are nine reviews for the 665. Seven of the reviews give it a 5 star, one review gives it a 4 star and one review gives it a 1 star.

The negative review states that:  “the 1st time I wore these shoes on my morning walk I returned home with blisters on both heels. Very, very uncomfortable and stiff. Haven’t worn them since and most likely will not. They now grace the closet shelf. What a waste of money! I recommend you do not purchase these shoes.” 

The other reviews were far more positive :  Sue from Washington State says -“the walking shoes by NB are very comfortable for my Narrow Foot! I recently went to southern CA 
and the mesh really keeps your feet cool. I am happy with my purchase.”

M. Reed from California wrote: “I bought these to walk a marathon for a fundraiser. I did use extra cushioning which helped my feet after walking half a marathon. The shoes fit to size and I did not get any blisters, which probably helped by wearing dri-fit socks. I would recommend these for an affordable pair of walking shoes.”


So there you have it. Take a look at the New Balance 665 Women’sWalking shoe and see if it’s the right fit for you.

New Balance walking shoes are a great way to get on the walking trail and stay healthy.

Oh by the way, the NewBalance 665 also comes in a men’s model for that significant other.

Enjoy your walking.
