Very light shoe with very little padding. Looks like it's made to last, but the very hard inner sole made it uncomfortable for my son. We are returning it.

What can I say, rarely does NB disappoint. Bought for my 10 year old son. Ordered his normal size, which fit just right. Good amount of support, according to him, and he loves the brightness of the blue and orange. He gets many compliments with these on, and I like that I'm able to spot him out of a crowd easily!

I got these sneakers overnight and my 2 year old granddaughter was thrilled when she saw them and such bright colors and they fit her perfectly with room for growth.

First, if your child has narrow/smaller feet or needs heel stability, forget this shoe. It is wide in the back (just by looking at it after it's worn once). Second, I don't know if the Zappos description states this, but this is not a running shoe. Per the New Balance website, this is a "lifestyle" shoe. To me, this means it's not meant for running. My 9 year old doesn't run mileage, but she wears these to play soccer (on turf - because I won't buy new turf shoes 2 times a year) and runs enough in her everyday life (recess etc) that she should wear shoes designed for running (not for just hanging around). I thought I was buying running shoes but apparently not. So, they are too wide and not appropriate for her needs but she's already worn them. Money down the drain.

Excellent school shoes! This is the third year in a row we're buying them for our girl, now 7. She loves them!

Got these for back to school sneakers for my first grader. She loves them (and she's not a pink-lover usually)...they've been pretty awesome and they usually stay tied (double knotted).

Super cute. Super comfy. Lightweight and easy to wear. My six year old loves them and so do I! Will definitely purchase again when these wear out.

My son loves these shoes. We've gone through several pair as his foot has grown and he continues to simply want to replace them in the larger size. Sturdy, easy on and off, good looking and very well made.

I bought these for my daughter and she loves them! Easy to slip on and off. She uses them for P.E. and has no problem running her mile in them or playing basketball!

My children attend a parochial school where uniforms and tennis shoes are required. These shoes meet the requirements and they are high quality lasting us longer than any other shoes I have bought in the past. They fit their feet and I have yet to hear a complaint of pain, it's a regular purchase in our home. We love Zappos because of the free and easy returns so if we get the wrong size or the kids grow more than I anticipate we just ship them back and get another in no time.

1st of all Zappos is awesome - anything and everything you might need they have. I bought these shoes from my 9 year old. They are great. He loves them. They are super comfortable and look at them - they are super cool. Functionally and style 2 thumbs up for a fourth grader.

My daughter loves them, and she is so picky about shoes. She said they are very comfortable and light, and she loves the bright colors. Good support, great quality and true to size. Worth the money.

This is our fifth pair -- fifth! -- for my enormous 2 year old son (he's 36 inches and 40 pounds and his feet are the size of bear paws). I bought them at first because they were cute enough, but I've kept buying them because they are literally the only shoes that fit my boy's enormous feet. It's so hard to find shoes in an XW, and these are definitely wide enough. They are easy on/off and so comfortable that my son will choose them over Crocs or Uggs (the only other shoes we've ever found that we can get on him). I literally don't know what I would do without these. I have already ordered the next two half-sizes. I think these are in our future for a long, long time.

I purchased a 6.5 wide for my 19 month old and they are exactly what I expected. I'm thankful New Balance offers a variety of cute kids shoes in wide width. Nice quality. Initially I was hoping the sole of the shoe would be a little more flexible, but she walks/runs just fine with this firmer sole. Definitely recommend! Happy with this purchase.

I bought these for my 2 year old. The shoes look exactly like the picture and are really cute and vibrant. But buyer beware, like the other ratings, within 1 day at daycare the top of the shoe starting getting holes in them. I really wish I could post a picture of how terrible they look after only 1 month of ownership (and these shoes are not even worn on a daily basis). Do not purchase this shoe.

Man, these are so cute - I really wanted them for my son. Even the wide was too narrow for him (and he wears a M in other brands).

These shoes are more durable than previous Nikes. The soles are strong rubber that doesn't wear down as fast when kids run on concrete. The laces are a bit short making double knots more difficult but not impossible by any means. I was hoping the padding in the tongue would get squished down but after a month of daily wear, we still have relatively short laces.

Super cute shoes, fit true to size, red goes great with our school uniforms. My 5 year old never complained about them rubbing her feet the wrong way - they were comfortable from day one.

I'm biased because I'm a Gator, but I have to say that these shoes look great and keep my 8 year old's feet comfy at least 8 hours a day. He also uses them to play basketball and loves them.

While these shoes fit well and look great, the stitching in the front that is perpendicular to the sole comes out after just a few months -- and this has happened with all three pairs I've bought in this style. Not acceptable when you're paying this much for a pair of shoes.

I bought these shoes for my 3 year old son. His previous tennis shoes were starting to fall apart after 5 months or so, and he needed something sturdy for the fall and winter. I really like them and so does he, given they are his favorite colors (orange and green). They are very well made and should last until he grows out of them. I ordered a half size bigger than the shoes he's wearing now and they are pretty much the same size, so either his previous shoes run big or these run a bit small. Either way, I wish I had ordered a full size up. I also noticed that they aren't as wide as his other shoes. They fit him fine, but I would advise to order a wide shoe if your kiddo has bigger feet. Overall, these are great quality for the price and I will probably keep purchasing as his feet grow.
