Photo colors are accurate, super bright yellow and dark purple. These are really fun shoes with the standard NB support & construction. The fabric is almost like a lightweight man-made felt. Sprayed them with water repellant silicon for protection.

This shoe must have been a little larger than the others I have ordered in this size. After my walk I had a horrible blister from the heel sliding up and down. I wear a band-aid now when I wear them.

These shoes fit like a glove. They are so comfortable! I like them so much I got a second pair to put on the shelf.

Fantastic! This new design is great. 8 mm offset feels nimble yet cushioned enough to enjoy the run. I was moving so easily I couldn't believe it. The fit seemed too roomy at first but I was able to tighten for my low volume foot. Thank you Zappos for sending yet another one to try...love it!

Nice look but as usual, NB shoes are made in China and are never sized as stated-always smaller.

Overall I gave this a 5 because I put more weight on the comfort and how the shoe feels vs how it looks. Personally, I don't like the colors of women's shoes many times because they are pastel, etc. and I prefer the look of more bold colors. Now, that said, this shoe rocks! I was steered to this shoe by runner's world shoe guide because I have high arches and supinate. This is the first time I've pulled orthotics out of my shoes and ran with just the shoe in over 15 years. I've had them for about a month, run 12 to 18 miles a week, and nothing but greatness so far. I am seriously considering getting the same shoe to have extra on hand.

Most excellent running shoe. Minimal with cushion. Comfortable right out of the box and after a 10 mile run. I was looking for a better shoe for a half marathon. I believe I found it.

Great fit, good looking shoe, and true to size. No blisters or discomfort from the time I opened the box to now (6 weeks later). My favorite thing about these running shoes are that they are well cushioned but don't weigh down my feet. Highly recommend!

1st I'm glad I didn't listen to the one Review that the shoe runs small. This sneaker is true to size. I wear 7 1/2 in Nike and bought the 7/12 in NB and they fit like a glove and I have wiggle room. The Yellow is more like a Neon Yellow which is perfect. I am totally happy.

Good quality shoe. Like that you can take out inserts and put in your own orthotics. Feels a little big for size. Will return try half size smaller than my usual.

These are light weight, but they have poorly designed soles. They stick to changing surfaces and the small tread catches rocks. I have not fallen in 10 years of running until the last two months - with these shoes I have fallen twice and consider the shoes to be a factor.

Way too narrow and small, I normally wear 6.5 regular, I purchased a 6.5 wide. I have to return them because my right foot kept falling asleep!

These are the lightest shoes I have ever worn. They are very comfortable. They do tend to get attention, not all of it skeptical!

Wonderful shoes! I have really, really flat feet and need shoes with room for inserts, and these fit the bill. The colors are just as bright as in the picture, and they're incredibly comfortable.

I am a novice runner, but I knew that I had to get new shoes because the ones that I had would give me blisters on the bottom of my heel every time. I will admit that the color of these is what drew me in. When I got them I was in love because from the first time I wore them the made a huge difference! They fit perfectly and did not run anywhere. I will be buying these in every color.

Love this running shoe! Definitely comfortable. I went for a 8 mile run yesterday, and they worked out great. My only complaint is that I have owned numerous pairs of New Balance running shoes and I'm always a size 7. When these arrived, they were huge. I had to do an exchange and order a size 6. It really made no sense how the size could be off so much. But thankfully Zappos had my exchange processed promptly and I had my new shoes the following day!

These sneakers are AWESOME! They are a very thin, breathable material (no felt on them, not sure what other reviewer was talking about), and extremely light weight. They are true to size and are so comfy. And wait till you see these in person, so nice and bright! This is a discontinued sneaker so get it while you can, and for once, Zappos actually has them on sale.

I love these shoes! Bought the multicolored pair and it's even more stunning in person. The colors make me so happy I could run all day, and that was the whole point! Comfortable, good stability, perfect fit, I'm very happy. Considering I was a Nike lover and thought nothing else could compare, I was happily surprised with these wonderful New Balance shoes. I'd recommend them to anyone!

Love these shoes! They felt great right out of the box - no break in time at all. They have plenty of cushion in the heel for me, and fit true to size. I especially like the colors. (No more plain ol' white for this grandma.) They are more of a fluorescent green than yellow, though so make a note. I highly recommend this shoe!

I love this sneaker! I bought my first pair at a shoe store and liked it so well I ordered my other one online. I did need a 1/2 size larger than I normally get in a NB shoe but the toe box is nice and roomy. It is extremely confortable with much more cushion than you would expect. Also love that it is so light weight. I cannot have a wedge style running shoe so the neutral style of this is great. Will never go back to heavier type shoe.

I absolutely love these! I have always had a hard time with running - shin problems, hip problems. It was generally no fun. I bought these to start trying to add running to my workout routine. I have no pain! They provide cushioning and support!

These shoes are super comfy right out of the box. I found that they run about a half size smaller than what I normally wear and with Zappos' easy return policy the exchange was a breeze.
