I love the color of these sneakers; they're so cool. The sneaker is so comfortable my feet feel so good in them. If my feet could talk, they would say thank you there so comfortable. I work on my feet all day long as a chef an to put these on my feet after work feels so good. My feet are very happy.

First of all I'll say that I love the 574s. I already had 2 backpack pairs of them and I love the colors, style, and the comfort. So I ordered 2 more pairs, Blue/White/Yellow and Red/White/Blue, and they didn't disappoint. They feel like good quality and are actually really comfortable for me to wear. I ordered a wide since New Balance is one of the few companies to make popular wide sneakers and they help my flat feet. What more can I say other than keep em coming fellas.

I needed these for work and they are more comfortable than dress shoes and the price was good. They are slick bottoms when they are wet, so carpeted areas will be best for these shoes. I have received several compliments and almost everyone notices them when I walk into the room. I am on my feet over nine hours a day and these have been fine for the first week.

Great shoes. Seem to fit a little more snug than most NB's but thinking that might be the material. Looks like they may stretch a bit in width.

These are all canvas and are true to size. They are not as lightweight as some running sneakers are, but they are comfortable and feel durable. I love the vintage look. They are a great pair of sneakers.

Great looking shoes! At first, since I have wide feet, they felt a little narrow. But after a wear or two, it's comfortable and doesn't feel tight anymore. I use these for weekend errands/casual wear and not for running. I could walk in these for hours!

I just bought the blue/green new balance classic ML574. The color that is displayed on this website is NOT what the color is on the actual shoe. My shoes tint of green is a lot darker than what is shown, and I honestly don't like it. It's not bad enough that I would return it. But I would probably wear this shoe less often with whatever outfits I was going to wear it with.

I love these shoes! These are my second pair of 574s. My first pair lasted at least three years before I wore them out. Super comfortable -- and I feel really connected with the ground because they don't feel all high and floaty. They're also extremely quiet -- especially after they're broke in. I have wide feet and the EE width fits great. I ordered up a half size (I normally wear 8US, but my NB size in these shoes is 8.5US). These shoes mold well to your feet. They are amazing! Note: I use these as all-around shoes. I don't run in them so I can't speak to their athletic performance.

Was not wht my 16 year old son thought they would be as far as the color. Returning just because of the color. Nothing wrong with the shoe itself.

I've had several pairs of the New Balance classics and have never had a problem with the fit until now. I ordered a 14D and it is much narrower than a usual D.

I am so upset that these don't come in my men's size or in women's sizes. I wear a 7.5 women's and 6 in men's. I absolutely love retro style sneakers and this is one of the best looking styles I have seen in a long time. Alas, they made all the women's sizes in hideous colors only like pastels and neons. Ugh. So unfair. At least include smaller men's sizes so ladies with some taste can enjoy the classy colors, too! Every other men's retro sneaker I've ever liked came in smaller sizes than 6.5. What's up, New Balance?! Not cool, man. That said, I still tried on the men's 6.5 to see if I could make it work. I compared it to the fit of the least ugly women's color in my 7.5 and the women's size fit better, so I have to return the beautiful Blue/White men's shoes. Too bad for me and NB...I would have bought these in several of the men's colors.

I loved my first pair of these so much that I ordered another. Nice fit, stand up to everyday wear, and they look good. I have had other New Balance shoes that I liked, but the 574s are by far my favorites.

I am an almost 59 year old woman, and I purchased these sneakers and LOVE them. I have lots of trouble with my EEEE feet and these feel GREAT! I am soooo happy with them and they look good too! I would buy them again in different colors.

Brands I'd also recommend: any that have wide enough for a woman with a EEEE width.

Superman wears red, and so should you. Come to think of it, his suit was mostly blue. And spandex. These are neither blue nor spandex. They are, however, real comfortable and stylish. So buy 'em.

I've always been a fan of the 574. I've been looking for a pair of 574CTS for the longest time and having been wearing 574's during my hunt. However, I broke down when I saw these on sale. Comfortable as always, reasonable quality, and I've gotten a ton of complements. It's a solid purchase.

This isn't an EE-width shoe by any stretch. I just bought a pair of Brooks Dyad 7s and they're truly EE. Same with all of the New Balance shoes I've bought in the past -- they were truly EE. These shoes feel more like a D-width. I'm bummed as the shoes look great. Back they go.

These shoes look great, but be warned that they are very narrow. Get the EE version and a half size up and you should be fine. I'm still waiting for the 10.5 EE to come back in stock. I typically wear 10s

The lack of arch support is the only minus. Style, fit, and comfort are all amazing. Spray them with a good waterproofer and you are set. I am so impressed with the quality and look that I just ordered the black ones.

I never received these shoes and contacting Zappos to figure out how to get them is confusing. It's my first time ordering shoes, and I wonder if the box was marked Zappos all over it.

These shoes are not exactly what I expected. It is difficult to tell what they are from the photos. They fit well, lightweight and comfortable for an inexpensive pair of shoes. Zappos shipping and service is excellent and I will be back again.

Bought the shoes for my nephew for Christmas and he absolutely loves them! True to size and he has been getting compliments for them. They are old school style (which are coming back in style), comfortable and goes well with black, white and browns. Great buy and fast delivery service from Zappos!
