The toe cap on this shoe comes apart from the seam very quickly. We had only had them 3 weeks before it happened. I had taken another chance on New Balance with this shoe, and it happened again. Previously it happened on the same style shoe, different color - the magenta/lime green one with stars that glows - toe cap on that one came apart, too. We are going to reluctantly switch to another brand. Zappos customer service was awesome and refunded my money.

These sneakers are comfortable, but the strap never stays closed. Need to buy my son a new pair of sneakers after only 1 month of wearing these. Would not recommend.

These shoes ROCK as my daughter puts it. She LOVES them. Super comfortable, really wearing well especially considering the damage she can do to shoes, and look great. I also love that they are available in Wide as my daughter struggles to find shoes that she likes in a width that is comfortable to her. Not one negative that I can say about them, they're perfect.

I bought these shoes and kept them in their box, unworn until spring break. My 7 year old has worn them in spring break and during school, but that is it. A month later the sole is splitting away from rest of the shoe. These shoes haven't held up well at all. I wouldn't spend $20 on them and I am frustrated is spent this much on them. Save yourself the money and get something else.

After one month of my 6 year old wearing these shoes (we live in MN so he was only wearing them part-time--still some boot days!), they looked very worn. The soles on the toe are separating from the shoe, color is fading. Granted he is a 6 year old boy and rough on shoes, but not what I expect after only 1 month of wear. I will try another brand next time.

Cute shoes and very well made. The shoe itself ran true to size. However, I ordered the wide width, and was very disappointed that the Velcro strap was not long enough to fasten. Had to return these awesome shoes. I wish New Balance would realize that wide shoes and wide feet need longer straps! We never have this problem with Saucony or Stride Rite wide width.

Purchased for a middle school child, these cool kicks were a hit straight out of the box. They were described as bouncy and comfortable. Offers a refreshing change from your standard mono color sneakers. A satisfactory purchase overall.

Great looking shoe, and the toe box is on the narrower side which works great for my son's relatively narrow foot. Top view photo was very helpful and accurate regarding width.

We've had great luck with New Balance before so I ordered this in March. My son LOVED these shoes when they arrived. He loved the blue and green color (his two favorites). They fit his wide feet perfectly and the velcro went over the ankle without squeezing. However, after one month of wearing these shoes (rotating them with another pair), the green "leather" piece on the toe has come un-stitched on both shoes and they are actually falling apart. I'd expect that from the cheap big box store shoes or if he was wearing them every day, but not at this price point and with only moderate use. Yes, kids are hard on shoes, but I still expect to get more than 30 days out of them. However these aren't worn out so much as coming apart at the seams. Looks like we'll be doing some shoe-shopping again!

We bought these shoes for our fashion-conscious basketball-playing eight year old daughter. She absolutely loves them and they fit perfectly.

These are great shoes. Our son has been wearing New Balance since he could walk...now wears a size 4. They wear very well and look like new after washed. And of course no ties.

The shoes are fine fit wise. He picked them so he loves how they look too. Here's the issue: for a 7-year-old who just got "tie shoes" for the first time, the are a menace. The shoe strings are slippery, as if made of nylon, and he can't keep them tied because he hasn't progressed to double knots. It's very sad when he trips. I'll buy new cotton laces to try to solve the issue.

My niece got a pair of New Balance and she adores them! Everything about them is great except the size: we had to go up a size and extra width because the strap was too short. One thing about Zappos, it is a great company with awesome assistants.

My son loves these. He needs wide width and these are true to size. He says he can run faster because of the red color!

My son is 9 with wide feet and it's so hard to find shoes that fit well. He loves these shoes and wears them all the time. I will order another pair when his size is back in stock.

We have to buy NB for my son. It's much easier than figuring out wide shoes. He lived these immediately. The stitching came loose on one toe box after about 3 months. But that seems to be the general length of all children's shoes I've purchased. So I'm ok with that.

The shoes are great and my grandson just loves them. They are light, give good support, look beautiful, and fit him comfortably - especially since his side is a half-size and W; one which was impossible to find in the regular stores. Zappos' service was smooth and trouble-free, especially as we had to do a return the first order to get the W size.

I get my twins a new pair of New Balance shoes about twice a year, these didn't disappoint for this spring, they love them. True to size.

My son runs cross country and track and needs arch support and new shoes regularly. I did a lot of research for arch support in a boy's shoe since many don't have that arch support. These are great. The only ones with good support that I could find for boys, and I just order new ones from Zappos every 6-8 months in the next 1/2 size up, so I know I am getting great shoes, a great price, from a great company!

This shoe worked out well for my son. I ordered Asics, Adidas, Nike, and a few others for him to try on, and this was the winner. He was looking for something cool (in temperature), and with good support and cushioning. He's been wearing it for about 10 months now, and really needs a new pair. I can't fault the shoe - I think it held up well considering how hard he is on shoes. I just wish this exact style kept going in size beyond size 7 boys! Why don't they make them right up through the adult sizes?
