Don't buy them! The sole is so stiff that the experience is like walking in wooden clogs. The worst NB sneakers I've ever had. Will never buy new balance again. And you should consider some other model of NB.

Style looks great, and loved the color scheme. But when I went to try these on, there was something just not right with the fit. The tongue seems over padded, and didn't feel comfortable. And while NB tends to run true to size, but toes felt just a tad crammed. I ended up returning. Thanks for the easy return policy.

I was very pleased with customer service level and the speed I got the shoes I ordered with Zappos. This is not my first time, and I keep coming back for a great product and bargain prices!

Brands I'd also recommend: I like Nike and school back pack I got here previously

These shoes run much smaller and narrower than the 574. The toe box is also very shallow, to the point where the top of my toe was in contact with the fabric all the time. After a couple of days of wear, I tried a thinner insole to give a little bit more room, but it was still uncomfortable. The quality was also disappointing for NB, with the shape of the overlays at the toe of the left and right shoe being very different, like they came from two different pairs. I should have returned them. They do look good, though.

Nice style of NB Classics, but the white laces look bad with the shoe. They should ship with a gray lace.

These are great overall shoes, the blue was a little lighter in color than I expected. Comfort is good as well. You cannot go wrong with New Balance Classics.

Love these kicks. Very sharp, comfortable. I get a lot of positive comments about these. Just an FYI, the blue is a little lighter than the pic indicates, and I swapped out the white shoelaces for some gray ones. I think they look better with the gray laces. They're going to be a staple during the upcoming summer months.

Shoe runs a size small. I normally wear a 14 but had to go up to my first size 15. Fits great now and I love the style. I'm able to wear them with shorts and jeans. Super comfy.

I've worn nothing but New Balance Classics the past 11 years and this pair is another great addition. Comfortable and I like the stripped down style. The red reflective material can sometimes appear to be a dark pink, but I don't mind.

Pretty awesome shoes. I managed to snag the blue ones. They're pretty easy to keep clean, and no scuffs or scratches yet. My first pair of non-Dr. Martens in about 12 years.

I think this model is way tighter across the toe box and is much narrower than the 574 model. I liked these because they were all leather, but these are much less comfortable for me than the 574.

They use the reflective coating for the red N and heel backing, from 15-20' away with indoor lighting they turn bright pink. Otherwise very comfortable, and good style.

Needed some shoes that would provide comfort and support while at the gym. These shoes were it. Had them for several weeks and they hug my feet perfectly. However I have plantar fasciitis so I had to remove the insole and replaced them with some power step ones. Great combination. Quick note: If you happen to step in motor oil, these shoes will be quick to slip. Not oil resistant.

I saw these on the Street Shot Style Blog. They look old skool cool but they fit too narrow for my feet.

Awesome shoe! Comfy and well built. Does not feel cheap at all like most shoes of this price. Great amount of cushion and support. Surprising amount actually. Most cheap shoes look like cheap shoes but this one has a stylish retro feel. Classic look. Well worth the money.

An excellent shoe that fits very well, perhaps just a wee bit narrow. Very well constructed and darn good looking. New Balance is the only shoe worth buying these days.

Brands I'd also recommend: Only shoe worht buying is New Balance.
