Suggested by orthopedic professional - The Classic 574 is the pair of shoes that I made my orthotic inserts with. It has great arch support and a removable insole. If you feel around the heel, you'll notice a hard heel cup for stabilization. And if you press into the arch side of the shoe, you'll find the supportive heel cup extends to the arch and provide a much better arch support than many other shoes. This is a great pair of shoes to walk in.

Cute color, but stiff & not much arch support or any supportive feel like I usually find in NB.

I purchased these shoes to walk around in New York for three days. I needed something that was comfortable and warm. These accomplished both. I didn't even get a blister from wearing for the first time on this trip!

I'd also recommend: Saucony

NOT true to size - I cannot feel my feet into these shoes! I normally wear a size 8. I bought an 81/2 wide and my toes are in the top. These do not feel like a wide width shoe at all. Now I am stuck with a pair of shoes I cannot even wear!

Once upon a time, in an athletic supply store in a languishing mall, I bought a pair of New Balance 574. It wasn't love at first sight, no. I just needed new sneakers, and they fit, and they were on sale, so I bought 'em. Little did I know then that I had found my true sneaker love. When that pair wore out, I got another pair. Then another. I had "my" sneakers. I was happy. Then, a few years back, New Balance discontinued the 574. Shock, horror! I found one last pair of NB574 at a secondhand store. What was I going to do when they wore out? I tried finding a new sneaker love. Saucony Jazz, maybe? No, they were like ashes on my feet. Maybe some Merrell thing? No, all flappy inside. This search for a new sneaker love was discouraging and expensive for everyone, including good old Zappos what with their free-both-ways shipping. Then, hallelujah, I discover that New Balance has reissued the 574. Rejoice! Buy! Wear! I want them in all the colors.
