We've always bought New Balance for our son and the shoes have worked out well. These are no exception. Velcro closure makes it a breeze for my son to put on himself.

These are disappointing. My son picked these out for his birthday - and less than a month later, the tongue ripped out while putting on the shoe. Needless to say I will not be buying New Balance again. I am sticking with Adidas for my kids.

I am not happy that these shoes have already ripped at the toe seam. My son wore these once or twice a month for three months. Last week I changed these to his regular every day shoes, they already tore at the toe. I could not believe it.

Great sneaker for my active 6 year old son. I like that it's neutral in color, and goes with almost any outfit.

These shoes are great. My nine year old can't keep his shoes tied to save his life, and I was tired of the battle so I found these. They don't look too babyish and are easy to get on and off. They seem to be holding up well, too. Definitely recommend.

My son loves these shoes, makes him "run faster" apparently. I thought they might be too flexible & not offer enough support but they are great. Not too stiff and not too floppy.

My godson loves these shoes. Can't take them off, and when he does they go back in the box for safe keeping. I appreciated the options for wide widths. My godson has swollen feet due to an existing medical condition and I'm always over joyed when he likes his shoes and they look like they fit and are comfortable.

The strap broke after only a month. I've been buying New Balance for both my sons for 8 years. This is the 1st time I've had an issue with New Balance. I'm going to try a different style, staying away from Velcro straps. Hopefully it was a one time thing. If your considering this shoe, don't. It seems the strap broke on many people.

Worn 6 times and then pink eyelet has already broken. Awful quality.

After my 8 year old wore for about 3 weeks the toes of both shoes started to rip. I called Zappos and they immediately sent out a new pair. (Love them.) The second pair is wearing fast, no rips yet.

The toe of the shoe came completely unglued from both pairs I purchased. Would not recommend these. However, Zappos was awesome in making it right!

My eight year-old son likes these so much that every time he wears through them (about every 4-6 months of daily wear) he asks me to buy the exact same pair. Good support.

There is basically no arch whatsoever in this shoe. As my daughter said, "it feels too straight." They were baggy on the side where an arch would normally have been. Too bad though as they are one cool-looking shoe!

Great shoes but the wides are VERY wide. My 6 1/2 year old wears a wide in every other shoe but this one. I returned the wide and got a pair of normal width and they're perfect. Lightweight and comfortable.

Great shoes for wide feet! I bought these for my 4 1/2 year old son who's feet are both wide and thick and these fit perfectly! They're lightweight and stay put.

My son loves his new sneakers! He is hard to find shoes that fit, so we love New Balance because they come in wide sizes. The only difficult thing with the shoe is that my son can have trouble getting the velcro firmly in place.

Love these shoes. Super cute style, fit true to size. AS others have said, the velcro closure is a bit small, but after a bit of stretching out, I think it'll work just fine. My 2 year old loves them and asks to wear them everyday.

This is a great sneaker. Easy on/easy off, we ordered "wide" and the width was perfect. My two year old liked them so much, he put them on right away and didn't take them off until bedtime. Also the darker blue will keep them looking new much longer than a lighter color sneaker.

My son has worn New Balance for three years because they are the only sneakers that fits his extra wide feet. This is the first time he has worn the KV695 and the shoes stink! He has worn other other New Balance shoes without this smell. Currently, he has another pair that he switches off with this pair and the other pair does not smell. Otherwise the shoes are comfortable and fit well!

These shoes are very cute, flexible and comfortable. My daughter desperately wanted them for the color, so we bought them, despite the hefty price tag for a kid's shoe. They were poorly manufactured though. The place where the rubber comes up at the toe of the shoe started separating after day one. We thought we just got a bad pair, and returned them, but the new pair immediately did the same thing. My daughter is not hard on shoes, and generally can wear a pair of sneakers for a year. These are too cheaply made for the price.

The shoes are super cute. My daughter loved them. Notice I said loved in past tense. The threads in the front of the shoe came loose & left a gap (hole) in the front of the shoe. Never had this issue with sneakers before. She's a 4 year old in school. She plays on the playground. She wore the shoes for about a month before we had to get rid of them. Too bad...she really loved the colors of the shoe. And I did too!
