Love these shoes! We've bought the 420's previously so we knew they were great. I like that they offer a wide width which is more comfortable for my daughter's wider foot. The colors are cute but neutral too.

I have twin 3 year old grandsons so the price was awesome since we have to buy 2 pair. Ordered on Saturday. Delivered on Monday.

Love the color and style! I wish they had half sizes because the boys' 5 is a little loose, but not uncomfortably so. (I'm a woman who usually wears women's size 6.)

These fit my 4 year old daughter who is size 11 great. It is bigger than all her other sneakers (Geox). But I love them, its for her school which requires all black shoes so its great and she can grow into the very big 11.5. It's super comfortable and I love the velcro straps she can do it all herself. Can I give this shoe 10 stars?

These shoes look awesome on my 3 year old. Best arch support I have found. Why do shoe manufacturers think kids don't need arch support? Thank you New Balance for the arch support and for making a wide option for kids! Just got these so can't comment on how well they hold up over time.

My son insisted on these shoes because "Theo has them and Theo runs fast." That might be true but these shoes sure don't last. We bought them only two months ago and they already have holes. The holes started within two weeks. They might work if your kid is really easy on his/her footwear but they just didn't last for us.

We like New Balance because they offer W and extra W. Our son has a wide foot and a very high arch. This shoe fits well and the straps actually reach across his foot. He is very happy with them!

I could not get these on either of my twins, and they do not have wide feet. I sent them back and ordered the same size but in "wide" and they were also way too narrow. What a disappointment.

Being my first Zappos order I was impressed with how quickly these arrived at out house. My 4 year old loves them, and he's gotten a ton of compliments. We normally don't do shoes that tie for him but these are really easy to tie and a single knot holds well without the laces being too long or too short, I also can tell that tying the shoes gives him more ankle stability than his Velcro shoes.

My 2 1/2yr old son loves these shoes. Great fit for orthotics (remove the thin insert that comes with them). Only annoyance is that they tie, but I double knot them & he doesn't mess with them. Great shoe!

Excellent shoe for my son who has mild pronation and issues with heel pain from Severs Disease (fast growth/separation of growth plate in heel). This is now our 4th pair of this model of shoe as he wears them every day. The shoes get beat up by about month 3-4 and lose their support and need replacement. But honestly, they are tough and last (and still look decent)...the kid is just really rough on shoes (as are most 10yo boys)! The colors are bright enough that my son likes them but not so obnoxious that they won't blind you or work with most of the outfits he wears. We love this shoe New Balance! Thank you!

These shoes look really cute and my son seemed to think they were comfortable...but the laces are always coming undone?! They seem very slippery and always has to be double-knotted. Takes way longer to put these on a wriggly toddler in the morning. Bought velcro shoes to replace these.

I really enjoy shopping at Zappos. They always get my orders out on time and delivered on time as they state that the delivery will be. They are a good company. Also no shipping expenses. I recommend Zappos is the place to buy.

Great colors, my daughter loves these. We originally purchased the regular width and needed to exchange for the wide. My daughter typically take regular width in most shoes so I was a little surprised. My one issue, the tounge is too short, wish it was longer. When my daughter attempts to put these on herself, she's 5, the tongue often gets scrunched down below. When o put them on for her I really have to pull the tongue up. If she didn't insist on keeping them I probably would have returned based on short tounge issue.

My son loves these shoes. The width on them fit fine on my sons average width foot. However, with that said, the strap on this is a little short which would be hard to strap if your child's foot were wide. These shoes are high quality and I think they are going to last. My only complaint is that the strap should either be elastic making it easier to velcro or have a longer strap with a loop which is why I took away a few stars overall. My son is a happy customer though!

I hated these shoes for my six year old kid since day one. Why? The threads along the sides were fraying from the get go. And not only were the laces way too long for a small shoe like this, they also broke after just a few weeks. He previously wore other New Balance sneakers (to death) before this one and their quality was great - but this one is not worth the money!

My son has shoes of all colors and name brands, but these are his favorite for gym day. They look great with denim. They are larger than expected. In Nike he takes a size 4 in NB he is in a 3.5. He says they are very comfortable. I find they are well worth the money. They also look newer longer than most, because they clean easily with a Clorox wipe. This is the third pair we have purchased.

l ordered my granddaughter these shoes last year and we liked them so much we bought them again this year. Very well made, also very comfortable. Zappos has a great variety to choose from. Zappos is a wonderful place to shop.they always satisfy the customer.

Poor quality. My son loves these shoes. Unfortunately, he has worn holes through the inner and outer toes on both shoes and the sole has detached from the upper. This is after only about 8 weeks of wear! For this price, I expect them to last longer. Very disappointed, as New Balance typically work very well for my son's high arches. On the hunt for a new shoe!

The Wide version of this shoe is average width at best, perhaps a bit narrow. It's not even close to being wide. Even the outside of the shoe looks narrow. If your child has an average or narrow foot, this may fit. They appear to be of a high quality.

I love these for my 3 year old boy. Easy to get on and of course the Velcro is fast. He wears them all day without a complaint.
