I love the look of these shoes on my 4 year old. He has a wide foot and they fit him wonderfully. They are comfortable to him and appear to be of great quality.

Expensive for a lower quality kids shoe. The "extra wide" size adds more depth, but they're not really very wide at all. So if you have very wide feet, they will push the sides of the shoe out over the soles.

These fit! We tried five pairs of shoes before finding shoes that were wide enough and looked nice. I wished more brands offered W & WW for boys. Zappos has great customer service!

My 9 year old son loves these shoes! Comfortable, lots of room for his toes. Not too pointed like some tennis shoes. I will buy again!

High quality shoe with maximum comfort for little ones. I let my son pick these out; he needs XW shoes and these are perfect. Usually our only other option is Stride Rite. Glad to have other great options for kids with wide feet.

Brands I'd also recommend: Stride Rite, Asics

I'm very happy with these shoes. Lightweight but sturdy (the side and top material seem very "breathable") The pull-tab on the back makes them so easy to get my 3 year old's foot in. He also loves walking in them so know they're comfortable too. Very true to size. Width may be just a tad more narrow than expected, I ordered an XW in place of W and worked out perfectly. Great shoe.

My boys have wide feet and New Balance is the only shoe that fits them comfortably. A must have for children with wide to extra wide feet!

This is a very good looking shoe and one of the few brown tennis shoes available. We used to buy Stride Rite for their wide width selection, but we found better quality and fit with New Balance shoes. This shoe style, color and fit is a winner.

We bought these shoes for my 5 year old son. My only one large complaint is that there is not a loop in the tongue for the shoes strings to go through, so within minutes the tongue slides down to his toes. We had the same problem with the last New Balance we bought. The company really needs to correct the design and they would be a perfect shoe.

Don't buy this shoe, it won't last! Poor, poor design! The way they designed where the laces go do NOT hold up, they rip out thus ruining being able to wear the shoe.
