I love this shoe. My feet are long (size 11 to 13 and narrow and medium, both dependent on the shoe). Hard to fit! While other women are bemoaning their shoe fetish, I am bemoaning finding any good shoe at all. When I saw these New Balance Classics on Zappos, it was love at first sight. They were a perky, current style reserved enough for a mature woman (!) and included "fit features" such as a deep toe box and rounded toe. They had it all, a bonanza for me. But there was the challenge of size... 11, 12, or 13? Actually, this wasn't much of a challenge. With Zappos shipping policy, I could try on all three sizes at no cost! A 12 turned out to be my perfect length, but the width was a different story. Even the medium width available was just a touch too snug, and I had long ago learned not to purchase any shoe that wasn't a genuine fit. But I wanted these shoes so badly! They are stylish and make my feet look smaller. (A first!) So, desperate, I tried on some summer-weight socks with my new shoe delights. (I'd been wearing winter-weight socks, cushy ones.) Surprisingly, the summer weights made a tremendous difference... just the little bit of extra room necessary. I do love hearing, "Suse, I love your shoes! They are so cute! Where did you get them?" But even better is I can go all day without needing to give my feet a break.

These shoes are awesome to me! I usually go with Asics but I not only wanted a change but my Orthopedic recommended this brand and one of the shoes that would give me the support I need. When I received them, I immediately tried them on. I'm a women's size 9 and I have narrow feet. This style fit my feet perfectly! I've read that the size fits small but I didn't notice anything. I would definitely purchase this brand and style again!

Love these shoes! The colors are awesome though the color I thought was grey that covers most of the shoe (not the suede toe, heel or upper) is more of a heathered blue chambray kind of color. I went with the 1/2 size up and the are just slightly too roomy, but better than being too tight!

These are super cute shoes- I ordered them for work and love them. I normally wear an 8 or 8.5 but ordered a 9 based on other reviews and I'm glad i did. The 9 fits just right, although they are a little wider than I'd like. Overall, I recommend them!

I love these shoes! The colors are nice and bright and they feel like you're walking on sunshine. I wore them to a gym event and got non stop compliments.

The logo N started peeling up on both shoes. I wish I could return them due to that. It looks really dumb and sticks out. The toe box is too big (and I love a wide toe box so I can spread my toes), and the laces frequency come loose. I like that these are lightweight and look good, but that's about it.

I love these New Balance sneakers. Very cute with skinny jeans and regular boot cut jeans. Very comfy. Would recommend to anyone.

I was nervous at first because other reviewers said this shoe was small but I ordered true to size anyway. Fits as I expected it to and same as other New Balances I have.

I'm a 574 lifer. Probably my 20th pair. A little stiffer than normal but okay. I normally wear these as loose as possible but because of the stiffness need to wear them tighter than I normally do. Still great shoes

This is a low profile pale mint and hot pink shoe. It has the potential to be very cute, however I feel the mint color appears a bit faded, which makes it seem dated and toothpaste like. The shoe does come with two pairs of laces, one white and one in the mint. Both pairs of laces are VERY thin. They look disproportionate on the shoe and I feared I would break them. The fit of the shoe is small. I have several other pairs of New Balance, all in 9 but I ordered these in a 9.5 based on reviews and felt they were uncomfortably tight. I would have needed at least a 10. I do not recommend these shoes but really feel that they had a lot of potential. I've returned them.

This is my 3rd pair. I have wide feet and need to use an orthotic so finding a shoe with a true Wide size is a must. Plus the shoes are super comfortable and never wear out. Thanks to Zappos for carrying the Wide size I need.

Great lightweight, but supportive shoe. I put some Walgreen's orthotics in mine per my physical therapist's suggestion. Really feels great and looks nice, too.

Really cute shoes. I have bought a pair for each of my daughters. They get tons of compliments on them. Comfortable. Offer a bit more style points than their Nike Roshes. Will wear with shorts, capris and casual skirts.

These are my favorite running shoes. Perfect width, and no breaking-in period. I used to wear Asics, Nikes, and Mizunos for twice the price and never found the comfort level of the WL515s. Perfect amount of cushioning and support. I am normally a 8.5 in other shoe styles, but I always purchase these in a 9.5 as they do run a bit small and would pinch my toes otherwise. Also can't beat the style and colors of these classics!

I love all the colors so much and have 5 pairs in the 574 brand, however these shoes were a little more stiff than the other ones. I still kept them because I love the color but they are not as comfortable as my other ones!

The shoes were narrow and tight across the balls of my feet but have loosened up after some wearing. My foot is a bit wide but not so much that I wear wide with shoes. These shoes were uncomfortable for the first couple of wears. Beyond that, they're a cute style.

Super comfortable and light! I am a size 9 and New Balance are true to size. I have previously owned some NB with the Cush+ sole (which were the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned) and these "Fresh Foam" live up to that! Only thing that was weird at first is that there is no pull tab on the back of the shoe, but these are so light and comfortable! Love these! I am considering buying other colors.

Though I generally like New Balance shoes, the specific pair I received turned out to be somewhat defective. I've had them for 6 months but only wear them occasionally. Nonetheless, the sole on the right shoe is tearing apart from the seam, something I've only seen happen in very cheaply made shoes. Zappos customer service said they wouldn't replace the shoe because I've worn it. New Balance said they wouldn't replace the shoe because I've had it longer than a month. It's frustrating to spend money on a product that was poorly made, and then have the two companies that should be backing up their product refuse to replace it.

Bought these shoes two or three years ago, wore them almost every single day. The amount of abuse these shoes have endured while maintaining wear-ability is incredible. They're now my drumming/house shoes, only now do I have to replace them due to the left shoe falling apart at the heel. Probably the least water resistant shoes I've ever owned though. Bear that in mind and it's easy to plan around. Great shoe, probably buying another pair at some point down the road!

I am over 65 and although I think young people look cute in the new styles, I don't look like that! I have a narrow size 7.5...hard to find a runaround shoe that isn't too wide or splashy and jazzed up colors. I put a thin pad inside and walk all over in them. They are great!
