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.

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!

These are my new favorites. I purchased a pair and upon wearing them once they came to my door I bought up the rest in my size. They are fantastic shoes and I know how long they last so they are a great investment. Grab a pair (or two) of the these 574s.

The New Balance brand never fails me! I bought these specifically for jogging/running and they feel great. They give me great support and absorb shock very well. I have to wear wide sneakers and these felt a touch narrower than I'm used to. At the same time, it's not enough to be uncomfortable. Overall, I highly recommend these. And, how can you not love the color!

These kicks are the shiznittle bam skittle. Not only are they super comfortable, they are ultra versatile as well. I wear the old school style mamma jammas for just about everything. From slippers to skate shoes. They seem to last a good long time and get more comfortable as they break in. Another advantage is the wide array of colors so you can make that outfit pop with kicks that match.

Brands I'd also recommend: Saucony originals.

Being diabetic, I have a hard time finding comfortable, safe shoes! These immediately felt like "old friends"...comfortable, good arch support, and a terrific style. I've always preferred New Balance, but these are outstanding...great value and super fast shipping! I ordered around noon on Tuesday and they arrived by 11:30 on Thursday. Wow! That's great service!

I'd been in denial of the fact that I needed an EE-width shoe for years, so just getting a pair that actually fit has been sort of a miracle, comfort-wise for my feet. 574s are a classic for a reason--good support, attractive profile. My only complaint is that the white rubber outsole make these less attractive than they would be if it were black, but: people with wide feet only have so many options, so I'll take what I can get.

I was surprised Zappos sold cool New Balance like these the color way is so awesome, and the brown triable on the thing I thought was a cool touch, I never see anyone with these batboys, I highly suggest you buy these, and maybe you will run into me one day when I'm rocking them, and you can say thanks for the review man.

Phenomanal Sneakers! A bit 'tight' in the front to start, but now super comfortable and very light. Also warm enough for cold autumn days! A great stylish (I get complements)and comfortable sneaker.

New Balance is my tennis shoe brand of preference and and while this may not be my very most favorite, its sizing, style, value and comfort make it another happy NB choice for me.

Excellent shoes. I've been wearing 574s for eight years now. Nothing quite feels like a fresh pair of these. These are the best of a strong pack. Wide size is clutch.

Great shoes! Took only one 3.5 mile walk to break them in and the support is amazing. Very durable in construction...cool retro look and the best part that doesn't seem to have been mentioned is that the shoe's outer (not sure if it's the Ballistic nylon or another synthetic mesh) is durable, easy to clean, and resists water, though it still breathes. Very happy to have found my ideal shoe.

October 31, 2012. I purchase a pair of Brooks ML574 running shoes although I no longer run. Due to minus tears in my left knee, I like this shoe it is very comfortable and a great color in orange. I wear the shoes to workout at the Wellness Center I belong to. If they can withstand a weight workout I think they can endure a 5k or 10k run.

This is my third pair of 574's. I wear these shoes almost every day and they're super comfortable. I've tried Pumas and other sport/style shoes, and nothing has been near as comfortable.

These shoes are super-comfortable and I am a very difficult fit. I love the color scheme. When I saw them on the page I had to have them.

Brands I'd also recommend: I'm so happy I've found a casual/sports shoe that fits so well I'll be sticking with New Balance. Thank you, Zappo's.

I got the grey and blue as an afterthought on my order. I ended up returning the other pair and keeping these! They are awesome, and very comfortable. I don't know if I would wear them to work for long hours or anything, but they are very comfortable for day to day wearing.

Really fun shoe but not the most comfortable. There is almost no arch support. The insole feels almost completely flat. The wide toe box is fantastic, though. No more cramped toes. All that said, I would...er, will be buying another pair of 574's at some point in the future. Absolutely classic design.

These are really great shoes. Comfy, good looking, rugged, breathable, good arch support. I cannot say anything bad, except they look a little dorky with the white shoe strings, so I bought black ones.

My son's favorite color ORANGE. He likes to be seen. Shipped very quickly. Product is very well made, even the laces are heavy duty. Should last the school year. Great fit, He ordered size 13 wide, and the fit is perfect.

574s are, simply put, the best value in terms of comfort, style, durability, and price that I have ever come across. I own seven pairs and will keep buying more so that I can rotate them out and enjoy each for as long as possible. They have such a nice variety of color schemes and material combinations. I get compliments on them all the time. The only time I wear anything else is when it snows or if I have to go to a funeral. Try these babies out. You will fall in love.

The shoes feel sturdy and support the feet well, heavier than my previous sneakers (Nike brand), but pleasant now that I'm getting used to them. Size seems half-size smaller than Nikes -- I had to exchange for half size larger.
