Fantastic shoe purchase. The colors are bright and fun. The fit is true to size and it has great arch support. My five year old daughter really likes this shoe and wears it daily to school.

My 2 year old son loves these. He calls them his "run fast shoes" or "superman shoes." I love them because of the flexible sole. I will buy them again because I am an occupational therapist and find great value in real shoe laces so that my son learns to tie at 4-5 like we did as kids. My son is in an xx wide, I had to figure this out on my own because all the quality stores only carry wide in house so we had many misfits before I went for the xx wide online & there are no red marks on his feet after is long days at school (day care).

My four year old with extra wide feet like his mom is very hard to shop for. Zappos is my go to shoe store. I purchased these shoes along with a few others for him for his first year of school back in July 2014 it is now the year's end, and they are still his go to shoe. He says they are comfortable, light and they do not pinch his feet. So far they have lasted and have not fallen apart like the Vans that I purchased my other son who only wore those part time basis. These New Balances are great. The only complaint that I do have is that the front of shoe scuffs and the fabric becomes frayed, makes them look a little worn but with a good wipe down and occasional wash they are ready to wear. I also purchased a New Balance lace up with mesh uppers and a black pair of New Balance lace ups. He much prefers the loop and hook and style. They keep him independent and make him feel more grown up. They look great with his uniform. Thank you, Zappos, for making my shoe shopping experience so wonderful. Even in busy Christmas season your service is fast reliable and courteous.

My 8 year old has an XW foot so we have to order everything for him. We usually order Stride Rite, but he really liked these New Balance shoes. We've had luck with NB in the past, so I ordered them. We have had them 6 days and they are falling apart already! They looked cheaply made when we got them and both my husband and I were a bit skeptical, and sure enough, the stitching along the top is coming undone. It is not caused by any unusual wear and tear as its not in a place that could ever touch the ground unless he was actual lying on the ground. Too bad, he really liked them. As far as comfort, the back of the heel is kind of tall and digs into the back of his ankle. He loves the looks of them.

I read all of the reviews and was very excited to buy these shoes for my 20 month old son. He has very wide and chubby feet. I was very disappointed in these shoes. Despite the reviews, the XW was not much wider than the W (I ordered both). The Velcro strap barely went over his foot. I had to pull it tight for the Velcro on the strap to reach the Velcro on the shoe. My son kept saying "ouchie." I had to return both the W and XW and keep searching for shoes.

My son helped me pick these shoes out for my grandson. The "New Balance" brand has worn extremely well, they can be put on and off without help and these shoes come in wide widths!

As an adult with wide feet and size 5, these sneakers are just the best. I had ankle pain from other sneakers as my job requires me to be on my feet all. These were comfortable from the very first day.

I love New Balance for my daughter. I have tried many different brands and have found that New Balance holds up longer and fits her medium-wide foot perfectly. They are pretty true to size, the medium width works for her and she has a slightly wide foot. If your child has narrow feet the medium might be loose.

My son has been wearing these for 4 months. The sole is separating from the shoe. Otherwise they have been good shoes, just wish they would have lasted longer.

My son wears orthotics (AFOs) and these shoes are one of the few that fit over his orthotics. Good quality. Our last pair was used daily for a year and they are in great condition still.

This has been a great basketball shoe for my 7 year old who has extremely wide feet. It is much preferable than trying to squeeze his foot into a basketball shoe at a store that is invariably medium in width. There are not many choices in wide children's shoes that offer the style and colors in standard width. But the red highlights were enough in this shoe to mollify my son compared to his teammates more colorful choices. They also do not appear too orthotic or othropedic as many wide shoes do.

I am not sure how this shoe received so many good reviews. Perhaps these would be a good match for those in warmer climates. These are made from a mesh material. They look cheaply made when looked at closely. The top part where the shoe-laces would tie, the fabric just cuts off like someone clipped it with scissors. The inside, the cushion and fabric cuts off the same way and then there is just mesh for the rest of the shoe. No cushion for the sides of feet, and no protection from cold air. It seems that all brands are doing this! I will be returning these for a different style without mesh.

The toe of this shoe is a painted type film covering. It scuffed the first day of wearing and was ruined. It did not hold up longer than 8 hours. For a kid shoe, this should have done much better. I will be sending it back for an exchange or refund. Terrible quality.

These shoes were sized smaller than we expected. The sole is pretty solid and doesn't have much flex. We preferred the New Balance 750 to these shoes due to that.

My son who is eight years old need a pair of black shoes for school and for gym as they do not change into sneakers on gym day, so whatever shoes you send them in, that is it! I love New Balance and these shoes did not disappoint. My son said that they were so comfortable. His feet are wide, so I ordered a W and that was perfect. We tried many other brands. For the price and the comfort, you cannot beat it. I would definitely order the next when it is back in stock.

These are awesome for kids with wide feet! It's hard to find shoes that are truly wide. Good for all weather too! Get 'em!
