Success Through Play™ comments:

Our male test panel had the opportunity to test 2 pairs of walking shoes and bamboo apparel: Bamboo Crewneck & Bamboo Banded Crew over a period of several months. Here are some comments from our testers:


"Up until now, I had been walking in low quality walking shoes, which didn't offer any support. My feet were hurting after only 20 minutes of walking and as a result, I wasn't able to exercise for very long. with these New Balance walking shoes, I felt the difference from the moment that I put on the shoes. They supported me in all the right places and allowed me to walk for 45 minutes at a time. I couldn't believe that 45 minutes had gone by I was still feeling great. This lightweight shoe is very comfortable to walk in and provided me with good support. It is amazing what a difference a high quality walking shoe can make. I really like the bilateral elastics on the tongue of the shoe, which kept the tongue in place throughout my workouts. On my other walking shoes, the tongue tends to shift around, causing me discomfort and I have to stop my workout to readjust.My health has definitely improved and I have a lot more energy now that I am walking for 45 mins each day. Thank you!"


"I am a diabetic with poor circulation in both feet. I have had a difficult time finding diabetic shoes which don't cause skin irritation, which I need to avoid at costs. In addition, they haven't provided me with adequate support during walking, which left me with sore feet which fatigued very quickly. I understand how important it is for me to walk daily, to control my weight and blood glucose, so finding the right shoe is critical to my health. The diabetic shoes that I have had up until now have definitely lacked in the style department and look very old fashioned! This shoe is very stylish and has a solid feel to it. It looks very similar to the regular style New Balance shoes so I don't feel self conscious and no-one can tell that they are health shoes. I was really pleased with this shoe which is very sturdy and protects my feet against skin irritation and external objects. I am able to walk comfortably in this shoes for a longer period of time, and I fatigue less. I feel very empowered knowing that I am helping to control my diabetes by walking daily. My feet haven't felt this great in a long time. I highly recommend New Balances line of high quality diabetic shoes and encourage your to speak with your health care provider to assist you in finding the right shoe for you."

Most diabetics who received Medicare qualify for this diabetic shoe and other diabetic shoes from New Balance, as a result of the Medicare Shoe Bill. Ask your doctor/podiatrist for assistance in selecting the right shoe for your health needs.

Bamboo Crewneck & Bamboo Banded Crew

"I tend to sweat a lot when I workout leaving me with unsightly sweat marks on my clothing! I had read about the benefits of bamboo clothing and was excited to test these tops. The banded crew is available in several great colors. The bamboo crewneck and banded crew have a roomy cut which allows me freedom of movement when I am exercising. For the first time since I was a teenager, I am able to exercise and stay cool. No more obvious sweat marks for me! I am able to stay comfortable when exercising and no longer have to worry about sweating excessively. The crewneck and banded crew tops are very lightweight. They wash very well and dry very quickly. Men won't have to sacrifice their style either. The bamboo line of fitness apparel from New Balance is very modern and stylish and comes in colors to suit every man! Working out never looked this good. Thank you!"

I am an avid walker and have tried every brand on the market. New Balance wins my miles (excuse the pun!). Pricey but definitely worth it. Your feet and body will thank you!

I didn't know that New Balance offered a line of HEALTH shoes for diabetics. My dad is a diabetic and is in desperate need of a high quality protective shoe. I am going to talk with his podiatrist and doctor about having him fitted for a pair of New Balance Health Shoes. Thank you for including ALL dads this Father's Day.
