My son is obsessed with these shoes. He loves the colors and how lightweight they are. He uses them for his Ninja Warrior classes and it helps him with some of the inclines there

These shoes are the worst ones that we've purchased. They began to fall apart within a week of having them. One of the shoe laces began to fray the 1st week and is now frayed in several places after only a couple weeks. The shoes look trashy and used. My son has barely worn them. I would never purchase these again.

These are my daughters 2nd pair and she loves these shoes. Might be the regular shoe in our house from now on. She wears them to school and pretty much everywhere else. Great for sports and moderate hiking too.

My son is so hard on shoes (aren't they all!) and I'm hoping these will hold up. He wears a 5.5 and they fit perfectly. We liked them so well we just ordered them in red as well.

This is the first Wide shoe we have ordered and it makes a difference for comfort. The tongue and laces cover the top of the foot, and the shoe is easier to get on. The styling is great. Comfort is great. This was for a size 3.5 (boy age 10).

I bought these for my nine year old son who is very picky. He absolutely loves these sneakers! They are light weight and very comfortable. He loves the thick foam.

My kid loves these shoes. It is usually hard to find kid shoes with good arch support but these are perfect and super light weight!

My son has wide feet so he is limited to certain brands. He loves these sneakers. They look great too!

Kiddo didn't like the style. Looking at other NB Shoes.

The shoe looks great! My son was attracted to the color. (Wish New Balance would make more wide shoes in the hot bright colors). However, they were a on the narrow side of a wide. One shoe was fine and the other just not comfortable.

My son loved the appearance, and they are lightweight. But the upper/lining are SO thin that holes wore through the shoes in random places within 6 weeks. We've never had this problem before.

My son really liked these so we ordered them, but beware while the upper part is mesh, the back heel has a hard plastic that was ultimately too uncomfortable for him.

I'm very disappointed with this shoe. My 9 year old has been wearing them for about 8 weeks, and already already a hole developed on the side of one shoe that is getting larger and the shoe strings on both shoes are falling apart. I can't imagine that my son is harder on his shoes than any other active 9 year old out there. The style is awesome, they are light weight, great color, available in a wide size, son loves them, but I'm not counting on him being able to wear them for very much longer before they fall apart altogether. His previous pair of New Balance were awesome and lasted a long time and he outgrew them before they fell apart. I guess it all depends on the specific style of of shoe from each brand. I've tried them all and the quality is all over the place. I'm getting tired of spending a good amount of money on poor quality kids shoes. I'm attaching a photo of the hole in the shoe (with the new laces I just installed) and the disintegrating shoe laces that I removed.

My son wore these for exactly 1.5 days before wearing a hole through the mesh fabric. Not durable enough for an active boy.

***Follow Up Review*** After wearing for less than ONE day a hole started to rip open on the outside of the left shoe. I would have just written it off to him being rough but the red color of the same style ripped in the exact same place also after just ONE time wearing it. Very disappointed - I won't purchase New Balance Kids shoes again.

Top of shoe is very thin and light while the bottom was heavy in comparison. Shoe felt out of proportion. My 12 y/o child said the imbalance was very uncomfortable. He did not like it. The style and color (blue) are very nice though. True to size.
