Great choices. I am looking for a Cross Trainer and everyone keeps recommending NB to me that I am going to give them a try.

My Physical Therapist strongly recommends the NB line of Athletic Footwear. Their range is varied and there is something for everyone. The Country Walkers look fantastic. I am going overseas and I will be going off road and need some shoes that will offer great support, while keeping me cool. The lightweight aspect is also very appealing. Thank you!

I am so excited to find out that NB still make some shoes in the USA.

Awesome that NB has linked up with the Susan Komen Foundation. Knowing that a percentage of the sale of the shoe is going to such a worthy cause makes me great about buying.

Definitely need to buy some new walking shoes. These look like awesome choices. I have wide feet and generally have a really hard time finding supportive footwear that fit my wide feet. I will be checking out NB!
