I ordered these shoes thinking they were good arch/metatarsal support. The way to tell is to bend the toe to the heel. I did this, and they went all the way back to the heel. I had a pair of Birkenstock clogs before. They have incredible arch support, so my feet can no longer wear flat shoes. These shoes were flat. It's good with insoles, though. They feel sturdy under your feet, and they break in to your walking habit within the first ten minutes of walking on something hard (i.e., pavement or tile or hard wood). They look pretty good, and make you taller, because of the sole (which is a good thing, because they will last longer). The stinky thing is the size. First, I got a size 5. Way too small. Then I got a size 5 1/2. A little too big, so my feet are slipping when I walk. But, the slipping is reduced with insoles, because my feet comfily slide up to the roof of the shoe, making it ever so slightly tighter, but not too tight and, again, reduces slipping. They have some pretty lengthy laces, but I just tuck them in my shoes for good measure and better style. Navy blue looks good. These shoes are great (unless you have high-arched feet).

Great shoes! High arch support which is sometimes hard to find in a kids shoe. Great quality, our son loves them. Shipped quick and packaged well.

I absolutely love these! They are a great style, super comfortable, and very durable. I have two boys, aged six and nine and they both love these cool kicks.

Got these shoes for my son, and he loves them. He is brutal to his shoes, and after 5 months of kickball they are still holding up well.

We have been buying New Balance for our boys since they were old enough to walk and we intend to do so for years to come.

Only had the for a month but so far the shoes have held up under pretty active use. The only thing as always is the shoelaces don't stay knotted when our child ties them himself.

For some reason these shoes only lasted about 2 months being worn on a daily basis. Before this pair I purchased another pair of New Balance that lasted my 6 year old son almost a whole year. Some how my son already has one shoe ripped in the front not completely ripped through but it looks bad. The laces got damaged within the first two weeks or so, the end caps fell off. He wears these shoes to basketball, school, home, he's very active. They are very soft on the inside and cushioned. They look great. Only wish they hadn't ripped so soon. Every other part of the shoes is still good (soles, inside).
