My 4.5 grandson absolutely loves these sneakers. In his words "these are hot, wow, these are awesome grandma. I shop a lot and normally when he comes over he says "please grandma, you buy me too much" because he doesn't want to stop to try on items but when I opened the box of these New Balance sneakers his eyes lit up. Eagerly tried them on and I could see him falling in love with the comfort and flexibility. Unlike other views I did not find them to be extremely large but I did not need to purchase growing room either so I would say they are a good fit. I hope that these sneakers hold up because Major is in love. They're little pricey but the comfort is well worth every cent. Considering purchasing another pair for rotation.

These are nice looking shoes, but they run huge. My y son normally wears a 3½, but I am sending these back for a 2½.

My son has worn New Balance for years when running track, but with this style, he complains about heel, Achilles & knee pain. Will switch back to 554s.

My 11 year old son enjoyed the look of the shoes, but they fell apart pretty fast just by everyday wear and tear. All the decorations came up and peeled off by themselves. The shoes felt a fair amount longer than the size we ordered. Stylish but not enduring shoes.

I'd also recommend: nike
