These shoes look even better in person than online, too bad they are waaay narrower than marked. I ordered the 2E wides, but I was disappointed to find that they were extremely tight on the sides. Maybe New Balance shoes are just that much narrower than other brands. Have to exchange them for another brand.

1-I have narrow feet and I'm not swimming in these the way I do in Nike.. these fit me very similar to the way most Adidas do. 2-These did feel slightly tight length wise (M-12 - my standard size).. in fact, I ordered a 2nd pair (M-13 - Only full size steps available above 12) - these felt workable, but less than ideal.. longer than I needed. 3-Finally, I tried a heal/lace lock on the M-12's. They still feel slightly tight lengthwise but overall the best fit. Ideally, M-12.5 would probably fit me perfect however I'm cautiously optimistic these (M-12) will be fine once fully broken in. Caught between sizes - I recommend looking up Heel Lock or Lace Lock on youtube!

Purchased these shoes for my son. He has a wide toe box. These shoes were a perfect fit! Will definitely be ordering more in the future.

I bought this pair of New Balance shoes to replace a pair that I had been wearing for a year or more. I failed to put my glasses on to see what size my old pair was and ordered the wrong size. I returned them immediately at no cost to me and ordered the right size. They were here in a day or two and I could not be happier with my shopping experience. I also found a great pair of expensive looking Deer Stag loafers for half what I thought I would pay. I sat right here in my recliner during all of this exhaustive shopping.

Another great shoe from NB. It is not very often that NB makes a stylish sneaker that can be worn w/ such versatility, rather than a strictly gym shoe that you wouldn't dare wear anyplace else. The material is tougher than the normal suede so it doesn't give as much. Very similar, if not the same, as the rugby edition 574's. For me that means I can order them in the exact width I need rather than the standard D. As far a comfort, they are everything you'd expect from the classic NB line. If I had a complaint, it would be that NB doesn't make enough shoes like it or the Stealth Edition 574's (bring them back & in more colors in addition to the previous line up!).

I normally wear size 10D but ordered 10 1/2 D, one half size larger as others here have suggested and they fit perfect. Great sneaker for the price.

I absolutely love these kicks! I ordered a size 16 with a D width. It is really bothersome to walk into a brick and mortar store and ask if they have size 16 and get a no. Zappos always seems to have my size! Great service, quick shipping. What more can I ask for? I wish I could give more than five stars. I recommend Zappos to everyone! Thanks again guys!

I have been happily wearing the Nike: Flex Experience Run 2 in size 9D. Wanted a new pair and tried the Nike Dart 10 in 9D, but it was way too tight around the balls of my feet. I decided to try the NB ML574s. 8.5D was too tight still. 8.5 2E was perfect. Thanks Zappos!

Zappos was the only seller that had big enough New Balances to fit my feet. The shoes not only look good with their own style, they are also made of much better material than other new balance models. Good and stress-free transaction. I had to return my shoes for a smaller size. Returning process was as easy as can be. Only wish Zappos had a faster standard shipping. But shipping takes the same time for every other online retailer, so it's not their fault. Glad I bought from Zappos!

Brands I'd also recommend: Asics (they have some with kinda the same style)

These look like a mint green in the picture but they are actually just regular grass green. And plaid on tongue is grey and white.

These were a great buy. The soles do wear through with a lot of use but what sneaker doesn't. I highly recommend them!

FINALLY found an all-day shoe for wide feet. I'm in the concert production industry and can easily put 6-10 miles of walking on my feet per day. At the end of the day my feet aren't aching and no blisters. Awesome shoes.

Great shoe, very comfortable. It's probably the 10th pair of this model that I've owned over the years, that's how much I like them. This set does have a small squeak as I walk, which I'm hoping will go away soon.

I exclusively buy New Balance as my daily sneaks. The 574's are always offered in a variety of colors/styles and they're really comfortable when you have to be on your feet a lot. I wear a 17D and they're the perfect size. The only other sneaks I buy are Nikes for a "dressy/going out" sneaker but at the price for a pair of Nike's, the deal for NB is great. I always buy 2-3 pairs of 574's yearly so I have a basic pair for the gym/working out (running/lifting/playing bball) and two pairs so I can switch up the colors. The arch support it good and even better if you throw in a pair of insoles. Comfortable, stylish and affordable.

Brands I'd also recommend: Nike is good, If you have big feet avoid adidas they run small,

This is my third 574. Great shoe, fit is as expected. Only flaw is lack of cushioning, but for a casual shoe it is fine. Appealing style and New Balance quality.

Great shoe. Incredibly comfortable. I've only had them for a month or so, so I can't speak to their long-term durability, but so far I have absolutely no complaints. So long as you like their style, you shouldn't hesitate to pick these up.

I bought these for my husband for his birthday (I think this is his eighth pair of 574s). He loves the fit and style. He says they feel a bit lighter than the last pair. I am an optimist so I am guessing that they did that on purpose for comfort's sake. Overall these are nice comfortable casual shoes.

I wear a size 12 regular width shoe. These make my feet look and feel like I'm wearing a size 9. Very short, my toes feel like they can break out the front even though my foot fits initially. Might try a 12.5 because these are really cool looking shoes, but they do make your feet look stubbed.

The 574s are the best sneaker I've ever had. This is the fourth pair I've owned. I haven't been able to wear these yet since my region is buried under about 8 feet of snow, but I'm sure they'll be just as comfortable as the past three...and these are the coolest color so far! I wouldn't recommend wearing them for any large amounts of running (I use Asics or the Nike Pegasus for those purposes instead), but for an everyday shoe, these are the best I've had.

Absolutely love this shoe. It's been great for wearing around the city. By no means a running shoe but definitely stable and comfortable enough for long walks/bar crawls. A few weeks in and despite being on some dirty city streets they still look clean. I know nothing about style but several coworkers/friends have complimented me on them.

My 11-year old son loves these, for style and comfort. Just bought another pair in different color combo since his foot has grown. Have to buy New Balance because he has a wide foot, they always fit comfortably.
