It is a leather upper so it is a heavier walking shoe than a canvass shoe. Perhaps he would like to go into a store to try them on (even with laces, he would get an idea of the weight, walking around a store in them). I wear New Balance leather walking shoes 2+ seasons of the year and find them to be great shoes. In hot weather, I wear a canvass shoe to walk. New Balance shoes are one of the brands on my podiatrist's recommended list. It is worth purchasing a pair to try out, in my opinion.
