I loved the shoe but had to return because the 7.5 W was too narrow for my feet.

Took a few weeks to break in the arches, but after that I've found them to be very supportive and comfortable. I liked the somewhat retro look but they didn't commit and a few people have teased me that they look like 'dad shoes'. :)

These shoes feel like they fit a little bit long. They are comfortable, except that I could feel the stitching of the underside of the tongue rubbing against my feet (even through socks). It was noticeable enough that I couldn't keep them.

It's a NB 574 enough said. Owned a few dozen pairs throughout the years and these are just as solid as every pair I've owned.

Fit true to size and width....Moderate arch support. They are very nice-looking sneakers.

A previous purchase of this shoe was too small, but this shoe in a slightly larger size is good.

I ordered these in black for work (I wear black scrubs) and they work well. Understated aesthetically (which is what I wanted) and comfortable for my wide foot. I didn’t want shoes that were too flashy because being #freakishlyhandsome is enough of a burden/daily distraction without people glaring at my footwear too. I’m a NB fan and like the classic look. Very pleased with the purchase.

The perfect fit size and color. I usually have to break shoes in before they break my toes- not these sneakers. They were good to go.

Nice style, Ok for lounging around I feel, but not a good runner or walker. Not enough forefoot support, relative to heel support. my forefoot felt all over the place. Not wide enough. I'm an 11 2E by measure, and the 2E had my pinky toes going off the edge of the shoe. True to length but inconsistent with other NB shoes, which tend to run small. This one is longer than most classic NB by a 1/2 length.

I wear NB classics to work, I’m on my feet all day, on stone floors. This shoe has saved my body. This style and color combo is so cute and minimalistic, it works great with anything I wear. The fit is perfect, no gaps in the ankle area. A perfect shoe all around, wish they had more colors.

Love these shoes! They look great and are so comfortable- however, order at least a half size up! I had to return them because they were *just* too small. Waiting for the next size up to be restocked!

I love how they have a metallic pink finish around the shoe and they are so comfortable on top of being so cute! The style makes them so easy to dress up or down and they are AMAZING quality for the price.

Super cute shoe! Very comfortable as well. I felt like it ran true to size. Only thing to know is if you are ordering the grey/white, I felt like the color was closer to taupe.

Love these! I purchased these in my usual size (8.5M) in the Vintage Orange color and I l-o-v-e them. I know all soles are different, but for my feet and my high arch these are very comfortable, and I choose to not put my orthotics in. I also purchased the Coconut color because, on my screen, it looks like the prettiest pale yellow color. Not even close -- more like a tan. But the Vintage Orange is the prettiest pumpkin color -- not SCREAM-IN-YOUR-FACE orange, but a burnt orange, will (and does!) go with lots.

NB 574s are one of the most comfortable shoes I own, so I was looking for another colorway. I ordered these and the style of the shoe is nothing like the 574s I currently have (think it may have to do with the v1 versus a V2... I think V2 is wider). These v1 were really narrow in the toe box, so I had to return. Maybe they would have stretched out over time, but I didn't want to risk it. Returned.

Very very comfortable even on day one when I expected to break them in a little bit. These are my first new balance shoes and I now understand why old people and young people love them. They are comfortable and stylish at the same time!

Super stylish with whatever I wear. Super comfortable, so much so that these are my 4th pair and so happy they finally brought back the black on black! Will be buying more.

Ordered the size I usually wear in this same number style and it was too short. I reordered 1/2 size larger but accidentally ordered a B width instead of a D. On the third try I ordered an 11.5 D and they fit perfectly.

They are super cute, yes, but they fit weird. My normal size was too tight, but when I went a half size up they were too loose and my heels kept slipping out, and if i stepped too hard my toes would jam into the toe box and squish them. Further, the little rubber lip at the tip of the shoe (where your toes are) peeled off of both shoes within 4 days of moderate wear. Cheaply made. Cute, but not functional. If you plan to wear them once with a cute outfit and then not wear them again in another few weeks then get them, but if you need something more functional, skip ‘em.
