It has only been 4 weeks since I purchased this shoe. I usually have good luck with New Balance but did not with this shoe. The inner sole started out very thin, as my 8 year old complained the bottom "felt funny". I took out the sole and it was paper thin. Needless to say the sole is worn and we tossed the shoes. He did not wear this shoe daily. I did like the slip on, as opposed to laces.

These were awful. They fell apart within 2 months. The rubber sole came loose and the velcro stopped sticking.

I was so disappointed in these shoes! My 5 year old son started wearing them to school in September and by the end of the month the netting on the top of the shoe was falling apart. Now at the beginning of November he has a hole in the toe of the shoe! Very poor quality!

My seven year old has worn New Balance for years. These shoes fell apart within a few months. I am very disappointed and would not recommend these shoes.

I purchased these shoes for my son for Christmas. Less than a month later the hook and look closure broke and cannot be repaired. These shoes did not hold up well at all. Had to order another pair. This time I've opted for a different brand.
