These shoes are great, we are on our second pair. These shoes look great, fit perfect, and he doesn't have any trouble running, jumping, or scrambling out of the way of a laser (yes, he is 3). Great shoes.

These shoes are the best! They are lightweight, easy to get on and off, and the velcro works great. The do wear out fast if your kid plays rough though. I wish they were a little cheaper. This is my second pair I've bought for my 3 year old. He has really extra wide feet and New Balance seems to make the best wide shoes.

They are a great fit for the active toddler in my family. The width is perfect and they take a good beating on a daily basis. The only thing I would change about the shoes is the strap that goes across the top. These shoes are designed for wide feet, but the strap is not too forgiving for the width on the top. If you are ok with the strap not closing completely, then it is not a problem. Honestly, it is more for looks than anything else. But the truth is that this is our second pair. He loved and grew out of the first.

Love these! Have 2 boys and after getting this pair for one of my boys, I ordered a pair in my other son's size. They seem pretty true to size and they are easy on/off and hold up very well. I've washed one pair a couple times and they look good as new.

My four year old has been wearing these for about a year and has never complained about them. In fact, he tells me that they make him super fast. He can put them on easily and they stay fastened. The reason I was on this page is actually because I plan on ordering another pair in the next size up and may consider them for our 2 year old daughter if her tiny little feet are ever big enough!

Very comfortable shoe and looks great too! Lots of padding and good tread. Runs a bit small but not a full half size smaller.

I have been buying the new balance 990 and 993 wide size for many years. My boys love them and never complain. This pair was a little shorter in the strap. Sometimes the straps stretch because of the material and I decided to keep them.

I bought two pairs of these quality sneakers. Great color, fit [comes in wide] and style. The kids love them -- easy to put on [including the 3 year old] and they look great. The color, simple styling, and black suede go with everything.

Great quality. Good fit. My son loves to run so I choose to spend a little more and it's worth it. Navy Color great with dressier clothes too.

We love these shoes. They're our second pair. Super comfortable for long days of walking about. We use the XW size, and it's perfect for our son's still (at size 11) very tall feet. The strap is as easy as it gets, although we usually help him with it to get it nice and snug.

Both kids have these shoes for school (uniform, they wear the same shoes every day) and love them. They are comfortable and supportive. Both have slightly wide feet and these fit well.

After trying all the other major brands, we now have both of are boys in these New Balance shoes. Not only is the shoe comfortable and supportive, they actually hold and wear better than the leading brands.

Consistently the best sneaker for a fast growing toddler. Durable and washes well. My son has a wide foot and they are the only shoe he can wear. The only reason I keep buying it so often is to keep up with his growing foot.

Brands I'd also recommend: stride rite, twig

My son has a wide feet and usually after a month new shoes are "squeezing". It drives me crazy-for how long can you keep buying new shoes every two months? Finally I found NB Kids KV990P wide. So far so good. They are really comfortable. My son is very happy and so am I.

I love these New Balance Velcro sneakers for toddlers. They fit well and are versatile. I went to a boutique in my town who were sold out of my sons size. I went home that day and ordered from Zappos. They arrived 3 days later. So convenient!

I highly recommend these for kids who need wide or extra wide shoes. My son has extra wide feet and these are the only shoes that really fit him.

I have been buying New Balance for my 7yr old son and 1yr old daughter since infancy. Excellent, well made product! They do not show wear, are flexible and made of premium materials at a very competitive price. I really have not ever had a bad experience with New Balance for my kids. This particular style is a household favorite. It is extremely well made, classic and stylish. It goes with just about everything and my kids find them so comfy! Highly recommend to anyone with kids who are concerned with the proper development of their kid's feet. These come in medium, wide and extra-wide widths! Awesome!

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance Kids, Tsukihoshi

These shoes are sturdy and true to size. They are very stylish and surprisingly go with a variety of colors. Most importantly, my son loves them and they are perfect for his wide feet!

My sons love them, I bought 1 pair for each one. They are comfy, nice and easy to put on. The size was okay but at first, I returned them (both of them) because they felt narrower, and I ordered same size wide..and then, they fit perfect.

These are a great pair of shoes, especially if your child has wide feet. I was so happy to find these in XW. Many brands say they are wide but they really aren't. My son tried these on and didn't want to take them off. New Balance has been my 'go to' brand for my son's wide feet.
