I like these shoes and they are comfortable. However, when I spilled something on them and tried to wipe it off with a cloth and water, the cloth turned black. So, I don't think this is one to wear in the rain. I like everything else about the shoe.

Overall, super cute! I ordered my normal size (8.5) and they were for sure a bit snug. Broke them in with a thick pair of socks and they're perfect now! If you're concerned, I would definitely recommend ordering a half size up.

These are the cutest kicks that I have seen in awhile. I love the 80's retro style of the New Balance Classic Palm Springs. I got the black and pink and the colors match exact to the picture. Unfortunately they are definitely wide in the heel as another reviewer mentioned. I ordered a size 7 even though I usually wear a 6½ in tennis shoes as others have mentioned they might run small. The 7 slides on and off my heel, and I know that they will not stay on if I run. The 6½ are all sold out. So I ordered direct from New Balance and had to pay a bit more. Thanks for the free return though, Zappos!

This New Balance is comfortable, supportive and very attractive. I am always looking for a shoe to help me with nerve pain from Morton's Neuroma and this makes my foot pain free. My 27 year old daughter says the 574 is a great look for me and for her age group. She approves and this matters to me as she is always worried I will wear old lady shoes! Not these, very cool.

I have the New Balance Classics W574 in many colors. I love these shoes because they are comfortable and wear well. I have wide feet and found New Balance to be the only shoe like this to fit my foot.

Slippery comfort - I use these shoes for work at the restaurant. They're great for my feet and my back, but they're really slippery on a wet floor. This is my second pair of these and I know from experience that once I get the tread worn down, they won't be nearly as hazardous.

I need 10 of these! Cutely retro... I've gotten numerous compliments on the cuteness of this shoe. Not a running shoe, but certainly good to kick around with and walk in for hours. Amazingly comfortable and comes in wide even in the smaller sizes (Zappos had my hard-to-find 5.5D size!).

Love these shoes! These are a great pair of shoes. They come in widths, which was great for my wide feet. The W fits wonderfully for a wide foot like mine. These fit true to size and have great arch support. They were a little uncomfortable when I first put them on, but they softened up after a few short walks. I don't think these are meant to be athletic shoes, but they are great for just kicking around town, taking the dog for a walk, or playing frisbee in the park. I bought these in the Silver/Cream/Pink. The pink is a gorgeous coral color. The cream suede gets dirty pretty quickly, but that's to be expected. The tag says not to put these shoes in the washing machine, but I've washed mine in the machine and they turned out fine. A great purchase. Highly recommended.

Brands I'd also recommend: Asics, Birkenstock, Chaco, Merrell

I love the Palm Springs style. However, I have a narrow foot and small heel. For a size 10 shoe, it was too wide and no matter how tight I made the laces, my heel slides up with every step. I tried adding a different insert, but it didn't help. Such a shame. I'm not sure if this is with all the 574s or just the Palm Springs style.

Love these shoes! I have narrow heels and kind of big bunions so it's hard for me to find a comfortable sneaker. New Balance fits the bill! I lean between a 7.5 and 8, usually 8, and these fit me perfectly in size 7.5.

I love these sneakers so much. They are true to size, and have great support, and are well made. I've had them a year and they still look and feel great. This color way is super too, I get compliments on them all the time.

I've received more compliments on this pair of shoes than any other in ages. The matte grey with pop of shiny gold color combo is both clever and sophisticated, a fresh neutral.

I bought these as casual running around shoes after I returned a somewhat similar $150 pair of ecco's that had no support. These are cushy enough, though obviously not as comfy as true running shoes. And super cute!

I am a nurse, and I have always found New Balance to be the most supportive shoe. I like this style because it looks a little more professional than other athletic shoes. I wear black scrubs and the black looks great.It is very comfortable. I have a narrow foot and it fits perfectly.

I absolutely love these shoes! They are so comfy and stylish. If you are planning on buying and have wide feet I would not recommend these. I have a very narrow foot and they fit snug. Not too bad but how I prefer my shoes to fit. They also fit a little snug I wear a 7.5 and ordered and 8. They fit perfect but my foot was still growing I would order a size up.

Love these! Great style and super comfortable. I do use orthotics with these for added support but they still fit great. I love this style of New Balance and have several pairs but the all black is my current favorite!
