My son really liked these shoes for about a month and now they are coming apart at the seams. We haven't treated them unusually roughly so it's kind of disappointing. Back to Skechers or Stride Rite I guess.

My son has worn these shoes to school only, beginning August 20th. The side of the shoe tore. It appears to be a manufacturer defect.

I am a small adult who wears children-size shoes. It is very hard for me to find satisfactory ones. I ordered both the white & black New Balance shoes and have been extremely happy with them. They are very comfortable.

My son loves this sneaker. he has wide feet so we never have a huge selection and I was leery of the orange but they look great. So far they are holding up really well too and my son is TOUGH on sneakers!

School started August 14, and already this shoe is coming apart at the seams. My son is in 6th grade and this is the first shoe to ever fall apart before he outgrew it.

My daughter has wide feet and there are relatively few choices for her. She loves these shoes! We had to order half a size up from what she was measured in the store, and they have worked out great.

My daughter loves these shoe, they are super comfortable, love the color combination, got the white and navy. Hook-and-loop closure is great for her (she has down syndrome and has a hard time with tying) so easy for her to put on and off. Very well made and sturdy. Can't say enough about Zappos the only place I buy all my family shoes.

Perfect for my 4 year old son. He can manage the Velcro fine, though he usually just slips them on anyway. He likes them. We like them...they're not too "busy" looking, and they go with everything. Very happy with these so far!

Super-cool "superhero shoes" for my six-year-old! These were an instant fave, right out of the box. They are great colors, but also very well-built, comfortable shoes. New Balance is my go-to athletic shoe for my wide-footed kids, and this is another great pair of shoes.

My son picked out these shoes and loved them. We picked them out knowing they run a bit wide - so keep that in mind. Our only problem with them was that the stitching all around the toe box came apart quickly. So keep in mind that this particular NB shoe the stitching may not hold up if your child is rough and tumble like mine.

I bought these for my son who has wide feet. He also has a thick instep from excessive toe walking as a toddler. Love that they have the wide option. There is never any (in stock) wide sneakers in the stores. He loves them and they fit very well. Only complaint is that the one lace broke 3 weeks into wearing them, but that could have been his fault.

Cute shoe. Sizing was accurate and it is holding up well, so far. Would recommend.

I bought these for my 3 year old son and I love them. They are perfect for school because they go with every outfit and look nice with more "dressy" clothes and not just athletic wear. In retrospect, I should have bought the wider width because he does have a bit of a wide fit. But the mediums fit fine and he has never complained. I will buy them again when he needs a longer length and I will buy the wider width next time.

Last year I bought a similar pair for my son and we were very happy with the sneakers! They were good quality and lasted \until my son grew out of them. I decided to replace them with these since the ones we loved so much were out of stock. I have to say I am extremely disappointed with the quality of this product! The shoes look like he has been wearing them for at least a year after just one week!

Excellent looking shoe, but for being an XW, the velcro strap does not wrap far enough around very easily. Seems like the strap could easily break. Returned shoe.

This shoe just fell apart after a couple of weeks. The Velcro connector came off and the stitching on the toe came undone. This is the poorest quality shoes I have ever purchased for my kids. Does not seem like the quality I expect from New Balance.

I got these for my seven year-old son. He is often very hard on shoes and he loves these shoes and they are holding up very well. He's had them over a month and they still look new. No frayed laces yet and no holes in the mesh! I know it's only been a month, but these are usually very early signs of wear for him so I'm impressed. I also feel like they are a "good" shoe. They seem very supportive so I feel good to see him running, playing, and climbing in these.

My ten year old son has very narrow feet and a problem with pronating. We've tried inserts and various brands of shoes without success. So far he reports these are the most comfortable sneakers he's ever had and there is a visible change in his gait when he's wearing them. I can't speak to durability yet as he's only had them a few weeks, but he's so happy with them he actually unties his shoes when he takes them off so they last longer!

My daughter has a strict uniform code at her school and we needed an all black tennis shoe for gym days. After looking and failing at the stores, I found this shoe at Zappos. So far, it has lasted my daughter wonderfully, who wears out shoes like there is no tomorrow.
