These are good quality shoes that hold up. I've been getting these for my son for several years and they last until he outgrows them. He needs extra wides and they fit his foot great.

My 10yr old son mangles his shoes within couple of months (stride rite, asics, etc). This is the only shoe that has survived him long enough that he actually outgrew the size before having to purchase another pair. the insole didn't survive the duration so we had to replace it, but otherwise, good, sturdy, "active boy" shoes. We just bought the same shoe in larger size...

These are absolutely wonderful!!! I usually were an 8 in women's (sometimes a 7.5) but I always have to have wide width. These are very wide, I got the 7 XW and the fit generously. I can put my inserts in for additional arch support, and even wear thick gym socks with no problem. They are gender neutral, so they do not have the pink or purple that many women's shoes have today. If you are looking for a classic sneaker, this is the way to go. These are half the price of the adult version, so if your foot is not too long, try these! They are light weight and breathable.

Great shoe for a hard to fit xtra wide footed 9 year old who blows through shoes in 3 months time. I'm hoping this more expensive and hopefully therefore sturdier build will last longer.

This is the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. I purchased this shoe because it is one of the few brands that offer boy's sizes in XW. As an adult in a wheelchair all day, my feet tend to swell. Also wearing a size 6 makes it difficult to find a good shoe. I bought the 6 XW and it goes on easily and is comfortable all day long. I will be buying more New Balance XW in the future.
