Nice looking shoes, but not durable enough for a toddler. After 2 months the material on the sides looked heavily worn. Needing extra wide shoes limits our options, so we are going back to Stride Rites as they held up much better.

Cute shoes and my daughter loves them, but the seams started to fall apart within the first three weeks. New Balance shoes usually hold up, this pair falls short on quality.

My son loves New Balances. He's five and this is his third pair. They are the only shoes that fit his wide toe area without being too big somewhere else in the shoe. As for durability, my son never stops running, climbing, jumping in puddles, etc...and other brands can take it and tear up within a couple weeks. New Balances last as long as they fit. You save a ton not having to replace shoes every time your kid goes out to play.

Perfect fit for my son with wide feet! I tried so many cleats on him and this was the only one wide enough. Thanks to Zappos.

Not typical of the extra wide width that New Balance usually offers. We've always bought NB shoes for our boys, they have wide feet - and NB has always had the right sizes. I assumed this pair would be the same. The size I ordered was at least 1/2 size bigger than what my son needed, but he couldn't fit his foot into the sneaker and close the velcro strap. I would think any kid with an average width could wear these, but not kids with wide feet. (Yes, we ordered the extra wide.)

The closing velcro on this shoe is awful. The nylon turns like a seat belt and gets stuck which prevents closing it. The shoe is hard to close tightly, so my son was constantly complaining about slipping out of it. After wearing the shoes for 5 weeks, we purchased a different pair.

These were for my 12 year old son. This is one of the few brands that offers a wide. His last pair were Saucony and the NB are better made shoes. These are comfortable and he likes them.

My son is super happy with these. I can't speak to how well they hold up as we have only had them a month. We like the arch support!

This item was amazing. Great fabric, performance and most of all, my kid loved how it feel when she wears them!

My daughter is 16 months old and is small for her age. The smallest size these come in is a 4, which is a little big for her, but not too big that they are un-wearable or unsupportive. She is not walking yet, and these seem to give her the confidence she needs to try. She wears them to mommy and me gym at the YMCA and to the park. She really seems to like the color and print and how comfy they are! They are one of the only pairs she isn't trying to constantly rip off! And they are super cute! They look just like the picture online!

My child (19 months) loves these shoes and I would buy again. Note, the velcro strap is very close to the top of the shoe making the opening somewhat smaller than her older Asics. For younger kids, this might make it more difficult for them to put the shoes on independently. Otherwise, great shoe with a little attitude for young fashionistas.

Exactly as pictured. My son wears Sure step inserts and its very hard fitting him for shoes the New Balance accommodated them perfectly.

Great tennis sneaker. Love NB option for wide width. It makes all the difference for a 10 year old wide foot that has previously squeezed into B width tennis shoes. Wish I found these NB 3 pairs of sneakers ago.

I purchased these shoes for myself, because I recently discovered I can easily fit into girls size shoes. These look almost similar to the womens style and they are very cute and colorful. I like the bright neon colors and the fit was perfect. I feel the shoe is very comfortable, but not quite as comfortable as my previous New Balance running shoes. Either way, I am very satisfied and am so glad to have found a nice new pair of running and everyday shoes.

These are great for wide feet and have held up nicely due to the extra reinforcement at the toe. The color does not run when wet either. We've stained many socks with other shoes, but not these. Good find.

Great fit! Great little boy sneakers! Perfect because they are available in extra wide and have plenty of room for pudgy high arch. Very durable well fitting shoes for growing feet!

I bought these for my 3 year old daughter, and we love them! Our only issue with them has been that the very first time she wore them (and was not rough on them that day), the rubber sole on the toe started to peel back from the fabric of the shoe. Not a huge deal, and they have held up fine except for that one issue. I know it's a normal part of wear and tear on toddler shoes, but just didn't expect it to happen on the very first wear. Other than that, no complaints at all! We get compliments on the cute, bright colors all the time!

I ordered the shoes for my 10 years old daughter. She usually wears size 3 these days, so we tried both size 3 and 3.5 but yet it still seems tight. I am going to try size 4 now. She still loves the shoes and its style and she said it is very comfortable!

These sneakers are so adorable! My 16 month old son has gotten ton of compliments on them. :) He has had them for about 1 month and he is pretty tough on shoes but they seem to be standing up to the wear and tear just great. I would definitely recommend.

I bought these for my niece and they're adorable. She is only 3 so it's hard to get too much information from her but from what I can tell they fit very well and she never complains that her feet hurt!

I bought these for my 8 year old son. At first he liked them. But now complains that the back part is not supporting his ankle.
