Grateful c

from California

I was shopping for shoes for my mother-in-law. She is 4 ft 8 inches and wears size 3 wide. My sister-in-law did her best to find her mother shoes that fit, but I found these New Balance shoes were the perfect size for her. She can not get over how comfortable they are. I am not going to find a casual pair of shoes for her to wear with slacks and maybe another pair to wear with a skirt. Thank you Zappos, you make me look good. I have been shopping at Zappos for years since I have a "delicate" woman's foot size of 10.5 WW . Thank you again for your selection and stellar customer service.

Love New Balance for kids -- have been buying them for my son since he was a toddler. They are well-made and comfortable. I especially love this grey color -- it goes with anything, great for school and play, and resists dirt and grime. I just put a half dozen shoes in my cart for my son (9 years old) and let him choose the ones he wanted -- he picked the New Balance (over Nike, Puma, Adidas, etc.).

Brands I'd also recommend: Stride Right, Nike

This is a great shoe. However, since I need a wide width, the straps for the wide shoes need to be a bit longer.

Nicely shaped shoe. My daughter states she is satisfied with the comfort of the show. I am also happy with the strap since it makes things easier when leaving the house. Overall, I am happy with this purchase. Thanks NB for the design and thanks Zappos for shipping time.

Love these shoes...fit great, look great, and my not only can my 3 year old put them on by himself, but he thinks they make him run fast! These came less than 24 hours after I placed the order...you just can't beat Zappos!

These are well built shoes. I was able to get an accurate measurement of the foot and the sizing was what I expected. This is the second pair of this style at a larger size. The previous shoes held up to the demands of a pre-schooler. Because of that, we got the same style again. As many New Balance shoes as I have bought over the years, they have once again not disappointed me!

Bought for my 6 year old son who has very wide feet and the extra wide width fit perfect with room to spare if needed for thicker socks during winter months. Easy on/off and durable. Overall great shoe. Love this style and hope New Balance will continue to carry these!

I love these shoes. Very comfortable right from the start. I have worn the same shoe in the past with laces..but the velcro looks better and i don't have to worry about the shoes coming untied.

These shoes are some of the only shoes wide enough to fit my son's feet (XW). They hold up well; his last pair lasted about a year before getting one small hole near the toe, and that was with daily wear. If your child needs to wear ankle-foot orthotic braces, they fit well in these shoes. My son loves these shoes, and so do I!

This is a great shoe for school. My son wears a size 13 but with thick socks he needed a wide and a half size bigger. Zappos customer service is the best. They sent my new shoe to me even before they received my return!

I love these sneakers. I bought these for my 7 year old son. I was not sure what size to get so I ordered 3 sizes. Love that Zappos took the other two back for me. After seeing the quality of the shoes, I ordered the same shoes, different colors, for my grandchildren.

These are very well made and hold up to rough use. The Velcro closure is nice and New Balance is on of few kids shoes to offer wide options. We have bought several NB shoes and will continue to do so in the future.

I'm very careful in buying shoes, this one I would say was the most comfortable shoes to wear for my boy since he was 5 years old so I keep buying half size larger in every 5-6 months for the last 2 years.

Best shoe on the market for active kid with wide feet. Great arch support. My son burns through shoes at an alarming rate. Only Keens are sturdier, but their whole-size-only sneakers aren't great when the kid is actually between sizes (too much tripping and falling for my speed demon!). Though I like the old school styling, my son would like something a bit cooler. We use these for everyday, and something a little more fun/cool for outings where he won't be tearing around. Highly recommend!

My 7 year old and I love these shoes! He has really wide feet, and these are so comfy for him (size EXTRA WIDE). (We have so much trouble finding shoes that fit him.) We got these shoes last year, too, and now that he outgrew them, we bought another, bigger pair.

My son loves these shoes. They fit true to size and are perfect for school. Great for all different sock thicknesses to accommodate warmer or cooler weather. This is our sixth pair of this style since he was 4 and now he is 7!
