I did write a review a few weeks ago when I had to order the wide sneakers for my son. They were too narrow as well and we had to order the extra wide. I have never had to order wide or extra wide for him in any shoe or sneaker; so, I can only assume that New Balance runs a more narrow than other brands.

Update to earlier review -- within 2 1/2 months of wear the laces on this shoe broke, rendering the shoe unwearable and useless! Not impressed with the quality of the shoe at all.

My son has a wide foot and this was excellent in that department and fit him very nicely. They look great too. In addition to a great shoe, I love shopping with Zappos! They have never disappointed me!

Disappointed in these shoes. My 7 year old son had them a week and the mesh got a hole in it. He's now had them for 3 weeks and they have completely fallen apart, mesh pulling away from the sole, stitching coming out, etc. My son is hard on shoes, but New Balance lasted the shortest amount of time (3 weeks) of any of the brands we've tried, and we've tried Nike, Adidas, Saucony, Stride Rite and Merrell.

I got these for a friend's kid and am now biting my elbows for not getting a pair for my own child. These shoes look amazing, feel amazing and this is all the child wants to wear. Our little friend gets complimented on the shoes every day by total strangers!

I bought these for my three year old daughter and they are adorable! Her foot is a little wide and they fit great. The shoes are made very well.

LOVE! Great comfort for my active little guy. They look adorable and bright while on - matches most boys clothes that are bright and springy now. My son measures a 6.5 wide but these fit in a 6 wide. I'm not sure if it is true to size or runs big since we measured his foot ourselves with a printable chart.

Ordered size 12.5 for my daughter that just turned 5. The velcro is short so it doesn't hold if you don't really make sure all its in place. Annoying. But it's cute, she loves the comfort, I would not buy again due to the velcro issue.

I purchased these shoes for my 6 year old. The shoes fit perfectly and he loves them. We've had them over a month and they are holding up very well for the high level of activity they are used for. I was totally impressed by how fast they arrived. I will definitely buy more shoes from Zappos.com and it does help to read others reviews for sizing and quality. I also have purchased other New Balance shoes for my older boy, age 8, and they are over 8 months old and still in excellent condition. I think these shoes are the way to go! Thanks Zappos!

I purchased this shoe for my 15 month old. The description said the shoe was lace/tie, but a reviewer said they weren't. I was hoping they weren't lace/tie, but they are. They're very cute and fit my daughter well, but I wanted velcro since she can do those herself.

My 4th Grade son loves these shoes! He wears them pretty much every day (to school and to play), and he wears them hard. We were in a sports store this weekend, and he passed up Nikes, etc. because he said he'd rather have a pair of these. However, I will say that this is the 3rd pair I am buying him this school year because he's worn them to holes. Can't really say if it's the construction of the shoes or because his feet are growing and he's very active. They do look sturdy and supportive when they arrive!

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.
