The length looked right. But, my kid couldn't even get these on his feet. The middle of the shoe is so narrow and tight. I don't know who could possibly get these on. Maybe a super skinny footed kid.

My 4 year old grandson begged for red tennis shoes with ties not Velcro. So here we are, and he loves them. Zappos is my go to store.

I bought these for my 5 year old son. He is too busy for laces but these give the lace up look in a slip on. They were really difficult to get on the first few times but I loosened the laces near the toe and that seemed to help. After a few times of wear they go on easily without any help from me. But the tightness helps keep them on his feet without slipping if that makes sense. He loves them!

My son loves these sneakers. He has a slimmer foot and he said they are comfortable. The laces do not stay tied though. He really likes the color.

My son loves these shoes. They are tough enough for a kid that plays hard and typically ruins shoes quickly.

Nice made shoe. I ordered another brand sneaker before these and couldn't believe how poorly they were made. New Balance always make a practical nice made shoe for the active.

My 4 year old son got these from "Sinterklaas". We wanted our son to experience another country's Christmas tradition, so on Dec. 5th, our son placed his shoes outside of our door in hopes that "Sinterklaas" would leave goodies in his shoes. Sinterklaas noticed he needed new shoes and knowing that his favorite color is blue, left these with goodies in them! AWESOME looking shoes! My son loved them and wore them that day to daycare. By nap time, he was crying his little eyes out because they hurt his feet, but didn't want to take them off because they were from Sinterklaas. We took them off and the top of his feet were red and looked like they had welts on them. The shoes were large enough, but not wide enough, and my son has never needed a wide shoe. We could not exchange them because he had already worn them. I am going to try to replace the bungee cord laces with larger ones to see if that helps. Again, the shoes looked wonderful, were nicely made and seem very sturdy, just beware of the width of these shoes. I love New Balance shoes, and hate to complain, but hopefully this will save someone from making the same mistake with width that we did...

These fit nicely. Very much true to size. My son thought they looked really cool. He's very hard on shoes and these are starting to break down after about 2 months, but not at all more than I would expect. I would highly recommend for active boys.

The colors are great but the opening was way too small for my son. We ordered a wide for him and because of the "laces" we could not open the shoe mouth wide enough to get his foot in...we have never had this issue with other shoes with regular laces. Otherwise we both liked the style.

The laces on the shoes are too short. I cannot lace them through the top holes. This causes them to be a little loose on the foot. I would buy replacement laces to put in, but they are a color that is not easily found, and my son doesn't want plain white laces. Otherwise my son is happy with them and they fit fine. I feel frustrated at this mistake though.

I purchased the regular width at a local store, then ordered the wide width here. When I compared the two, I found that the soles are actually the same width. The difference is in the amount of fabric/material that comes up over the foot. The wide just has more. What it doesn't have more of are the laces. The laces are not any longer on the wide so you can just barely tie them. Just not enough length. They come untied all the time. The wide width does provide some more room for my son's foot so it's still better than a regular width, but I'm still looking for shoes that can actually accommodate a wide foot.

My 11 year old has had these for 2 months and they are trashed. There was less arch and heel support than in other NB sneakers. We do not recommend these, considering we have had better luck with other NB shoes.

Great color combo. However, already starting to fray a bit in some spots after a month of wear. My 9 year-old wears them daily to school & sports. He says they are comfortable.

My son just loves these shoes and they are great-looking, but unfortunately I had to give four stars instead of five because of the laces. When I read the description, it said the "bungee closure system" provided an alternative to lacing. But when I got them...laces. Ugh! He hates tying his shoes and the laces are always dragging around in the mud so I thought with this purchase we would finally end this problem. Bummed.

My 10 year old had a hard time getting these shoes on because the laces are a stretchy material with a locking clasp at the tongue. The laces didn't stretch far enough for him to get the on his feet.

Beautiful shoe, I really liked the look and the great traction on the sole, but we will be returning them because my son finds them very hard to get on with the drawstring and says they pinch his foot at the top even though he doesn't have particularly wide feet.

We were very excited about these shoes for our son. They fit great and he loved them; however, within 3 days of wearing them, the stitching is already coming out. We are very disappointed in the quality, especially when we paid this much for a pair of shoes for a 6 year old.

Bought these shoes for quality and the pull string elastic tie. The shoes themselves ran big but the tie was much too small. I kept the shoes thinking the elastic would give a bit and become a perfect fit. Not the case. Ended up cutting out the elastic laces and putting in traditional laces. You'll either have a big shoe with good elastic laces or the right fit shoe with that are too tight because the laces don't give if you purchases these shoes. Very cool look and good quality. The laces are no good.

First, these were tie shoes when they arrived, not the slip ons I'd hoped for, so I was disappointed. But my son loved them. It took about two weeks for them to look totally beat up, whereas the Asics ones from September took months to look this bad. I think the Asics actually look better. So not durable, and not as described. But he says they are comfy.

Update to earlier review -- within 2 1/2 months of wear the laces on this shoe broke, rendering the shoe unwearable and useless! Not impressed with the quality of the shoe at all.

Loved the shoe itself but my son wasn't able to put the shoe on. There wasn't enough string to allow him to open up the shoe to slip his foot into it. In my opinion, more shoe string would help. We have other shoes that are toggles. Love the idea of the toggle itself but again provide more shoe string to allow the child to slip their foot into it. If not for this issue, I would have given the shoe 5 out of 5 stars!
