I'm the type of guy who when it comes to walking shoes would buy whatever was on sale. Over the years I have purchased walking shoes by most of the major manufacturers with one caveat.....they had to be on sale. My usual price point is in the $35 TO $50 range. A couple of years ago I purchased a pair of these AVIA Men's A339 Walking Shoes. The price was right and they turned out to be among the most comfortable pair of walking shoes I had ever owned. I was so impressed with the looks, comfort and durability of these shoes that when the time came to replace them eight or nine months later I took the time to write down the model number and looked for them again.
Now you know what it is like to shop for sneakers. There are countless designs and the model numbers are changing all the time. Much to my surprise when I returned to my local retailer they still had these AVIA Men's A339 Walking Shoes in stock. I snapped up another pair. Then just a few weeks ago I was in the market for another pair of walking shoes. And lo and behold the A339M's were still available. In fact, the store had three pair of 9 1/2 M's in stock and I bought them all. That should hold me for a couple of years. I say that if you like something you might as well stick with it. The bottom line is that I have been completely satisfied with these shoes and will continue purchasing them as long as AVIA sees fit to continue making them. As the headline says "comfortable, very well made and economical". What more can you ask for? Very highly recommended!
