What else can you say about this sneaker. It's an awesome classic. Comfortable, retro-style. Just a quick note on the blue/red 1 shoe. The red leans more orange than red. On its own, it looks redish, but put it next to another red item, and it definitely looks orange-ish. I was OK with it, but someone might have an issue with it. Otherwise, great, as always.

Brands I'd also recommend: Saucony Jazz, Chucks, Van's... Etc..

These are the first size 13 shoes that my husband has been unable to wear due to their constrictive nature. We will be ordering another style within the New Balance brand and hopefully this shoe was just a fluke. Other than that, the shoe is soft and good-looking

This is the best company to order from. Although it was difficult trying to find a pair of shoes to fit my husband ( took 3 trys) they were great emailing my return label and shipping the next pair to try. It helps that I have free next day shipping with them. Live this place.I will be doing more in the future.

from Bend, OR

These shoes are not truly a wide shoe. My husband has extremely wide little feet (I call them Fred Flintstone feet), and we have ordered many "EE" width shoes from Zappos. These almost feel like they are mislabeled - they are that far off from being wide. His foot overlapped the footbed on both sides. Disappointed because they are pretty stylish!

I've had these for not even 2 months and they're already falling apart from light daily use. The sole is separating from the rest of he shoe and the "N" is starting to peel off. I've normally had great success both with Zappos and NB shoes, but for $80 these were a total waste.

These run narrow and a half size too small. they also come with mismatched widths...returning these after the 2nd pair had one shoe that fit ok width-wise and one that was too tight width-wise.

As a long-time New Balance fan I was so disappointed by these shoes. I ordered my usual size (12) and they are almost an entire size small. The quality of these shoes is decidedly lower than previous New Balance shoes I've owned.

These run narrow and short. If you're a medium width choose the wide and go up a half size on length. I usually wear size 10 and normal width in most styles and brands but am doing 10.5 and wide with these!

I am an avid purchaser of the New Balance 574, I have owned 4 pair in the past 6 years. They have that classic look, and they are exceptionally comfortable. I walk more than run, these days, and they hold up quite well, in fact I refuse to discard the old ones, because the just feel so good! I will continue to buy this model as long as New Balance makes them. The craftsmanship from the product made in Vietnam is superb.

These are my favorite pair of shoes. I've owned two pairs, green and harbor blue. They are comfortable right out of the box, and have a nice retro look to them. They can look dorky sometimes, but that can be appealing. I wear them everywhere.

The shoe design, fit and comfort are very good--what you would expect from a New Balance athletic shoe. However, the color is nothing like what is pictured! They are not teal- just dark green! I even exchanged them thinking I received the wrong color! Nope- still an unattractive green!

I like them. The only issue is the "tongue" having the tendency to move to the outer sides. For the cost, I expected them to be a little bit more comfortable!

I like these shoes so much I got two pairs-red and blue. They fit true to size and quality is top-notch. You won't be disappointed with New Balance. They are the only athletic shoes I purchase.

These were extremely narrow even when ordering the 2E, which was the widest available. I was disappointed in the fit as well. Had to return the two pairs I bought, truly disappointing as I really like the style.

Clean, cool looking shoe that's comfortable from the start and fits true to size. Only downside is that they're surprisingly hot. Really hold head in the shoe and could use some mesh vents!

Go a half size up. I wear an 11 in every other piece of footwear I own, I received these and they're just a tad too tight. Too late to send them back though.

New Balance runs narrow to me, but I love the colors. I cant do the women shoe, I wear a 10 women. So I purchase a 9 wide men's shoe. I usually wear 8.5 men, but I had to go up half size plus I had to do Wide Width.

These are very pretty shoes. I bought them for my six year old and they looked so nice that I also bought them for my husband. They look very stylish. But they are very difficult to keep clean (even if you scotch guard them) and to clean (they are suede so they require special cleaners). Also, I am not very convinced as to their durability. After less than five month (and not warring them every day but alternating with other sneakers) the part around the ankle is frayed. I was expecting them to last much longer. Hence a lower overall rating.

This shoe is veer light, but provides good support. The bottom is versatile and I use it for softball, racquetball and gym. I have always worn a size 15M, but found that in this shoe I needed a 16M, which fits perfectly. (Although my last shoe was also a New Balance a 15 fit well, it goes to show that with sneakers it's never a given.) That said, Zappos was extremely cooperative in helping me find the right size; which can be somewhat of a process when done through online ordering.

from Eastport, Me.

In my 70's and my feet somehow got flatter than flat, thus--longer. First ordered size 17--nope, got online and ordered size 18 wide giving my toes more space. I learned how to tie a runners' knot so my narrow heel won't slip and slide. They worked out real well. Still have not sent the first pair back, but I have dealt with Zappos for many years and I don't worry, their customer service is tops.

Brands I'd also recommend: Beats me.
