This shoe is about as amazing as they get. I use these shoes nearly daily and they haven't failed me. I don't know if it’s the shoe or my increased proficiency at tying my shoes with age, but they have only come untied once in like 6 months. Also, the N is shiny but only at a weird specific angle, sort of like angling your watch into someone’s eye; pretty sweet looking when it’s seen, though. Really durable. And two colors for laces with the shoe? Get outta here... get this shoe. Stop reading reviews and get it.

I've been wearing NB's M574s for over five years now, and unfortunately the quality of the shoes have greatly decreased. I bought a pair this past June, and the stitching that attaches the sole to the shoe has already come apart, despite only wearing them a few days a week. Perhaps it is due to New Balance's outsourcing.

I used to wear the 993's but I saw these and tried them out. They are comfortable and the look really great. They are tough and durable. I wear them at work and I stand on my feet all of the time. You won't go wrong with these shoes. I highly recommend them.

Super comfy shoes that are great for anyone looking for great cushioning in a wide shoe. I would not recommend them for running, due to the design and weight of the shoe, but are good for city walking.

I've had these a few weeks now and wear them about 5 days a week between an office job and standing on concrete in the studio and at the dance club. They broke in quickly and easily. There is a little extra room in the toe but my feet don't slide around - I don't think I would order a half size smaller because the width feels good at this size. I wouldn't mind more arch support, but I probably need orthopedic insoles after years of track spikes causing damage to my feet. I'll be buying more pairs of these sneakers in other colors!

The M574 offers classic New Balance style, comfort, and utility. This shoe is appropriate for so many everyday occasions. They're great in the gym (though I prefer Asics), at the bar, in the car, etc. When the dress code is loose casual, don the M574.

Brands I'd also recommend: Asics

I absolutely love my new kicks! I ordered them 1.5 sizes smaller as Zappos suggested, since I'm a woman. I think these shoes are great for men and women alike. Super cute and definitely comfortable! As always, the transaction with Zappos was smooth and easy. I always feel at ease with purchasing from this website because I know if it doesn't work out, I can return things hassle-free. Great experience! Great shoes!

The shoe came perfect but after 2 days it split on the upper side. I called Zappos and the happily sent me a new pair the next day with a return shipping box. Service is astonishing.

I have very wide feet and I rarely find shoes that feel comfortable on my feet right out of the box. In the past I have encountered shoes that are billed as the wide width variety, but when put to the test would quite possibly require days or weeks of wear in order to break in. Shoes that feel too tight or too restrictive when I first put them on are not for me at all. I for one do not have the time or wherewithal to go through a "break in" process and typically stick to shoe brands that best accommodate my feet. Whether you are looking for an affordable yet comfortable shoe for everyday use, or for a shoe to wear to the gym, look no further than the New Balance Classics M574. They are great shoe to wear right out of the box and the retro look and feel makes them even more attractive in my humble opinion. I would definitely recommend this shoe to anyone seeking a product endorsement.

I got a pair of these and they fit great! What gets me is how fast you get them. I ordered them on Wed. approx. 4:30 and had them the next day. It's like Santa magic. Zappos you rock!

I ordered these for my husband for Christmas, as they are his favorite style of shoe. They arrived within two days, and look great. He wears them often, and says they are very comfortable. This is probably the fifth or sixth pair of these shoes in this style that he owns, because he likes them so much.

Very comfortable shoe, great arch support. I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis (34 years old), bought these the same week, and within two weeks of wearing these my foot was back to normal. I am not a runner, but I do a fair amount of walking at work. I have gotten compliments from friends and coworkers too. Go ahead and buy them already!

These were a present for my father who loves this style and they were a replacement for the ones he had worn out. They are his favorite brand/style. He was very happy that I could find them.
