Very well made, holding up really great so far (3+weeks) even amid a rough and tumble type boy. Appreciate being able to get a W size in a cool looking sneaker! The last NB sneaker we bought was not as well done, so I was wary of purchasing. This one is tops, much better in comparison. Wonderful fit, so important.

Unfortunately this shoe did not hold up to my 6 y.o. son's activity level. We have had these shoes barely a month and both shoes along the toe box stitching has completely failed. We have had other NB and have not had this problem so maybe this pair is defective. The bright side? Zappos is such an incredible company that they credited me back the cost of these shoes so that we can try another pair. Thank You Zappos. I am a customer for life!

So far, so good. Early shipment & arrival. Sneaker is a sneaker. It goes on the foot, laces up, not unlike anything else my kid has worn.

They arrived quickly. They fit my son perfectly and are very comfortable. I hope the Zappos gets more boys' youth sizes in wide widths!

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.

I'd also recommend: Nike (wide width), Stride Rite
