It might have been a defect in the shoes I had purchased but the inside ankle on the left shoe was extremely tight and ended up digging into my ankle and leaving a blister within the first twenty minutes of wear.

Besides the ankle issue, the sole of the shoe was extremely flat and hard. I stand on my feet all day at work and ended up swapping shoes thirty minutes into my shift because they were uncomfortable.

Like I said it could have just been a defect with my shoes because other reviews I read were good but if you're on your feet all day I wouldn't recommend these.

These were my first pair of NB and I'm very satisfied with them!

I couldn't find these any where at where I live (Singapore) so I had to buy them online. I was pretty worried about the size but I went ahead to get a US 8 (UK 6) which was the size of my Nikes. When it finally came, it fit perfectly. I guess you don't have to worry that it'll deviate a lot from your other shoe brand sizes since it's true to size.

New Balance shoes are also slightly wider in width than my other shoes, which meant better comfort for me.

The colour was great, the blue was super bright and neon-y!

I'M SUPER IN LOVE WITH MY SHOES RIGHT NOW I CAN HUG THEM TO BED (you get the jist).

These shoes are very eye catching. They are slightly too roomy in the toe without socks, and more comfortable with socks. I love the retro design and colors. I was however expecting the shoe to look more cobalt blue than purple, like in the photo. The purple still looks great though because it has a nice dark violet glow to it. Just the right amount of brightness without looking garish. The back ankle reflectors are a really nice touch too. Yellow highlights give it a really nice pop and contrast. Not the most comfortable shoe for havy exercise, would recommend for fashion and casual walking.

Finding the right color purple tennis shoe was a challenge and this was the only brand that had a size close to what I needed. they are a little large but they are super comfortable compared to my nike and sketcher pairs that I order in different colors.

I have a W574 GBS dark green/gray suede/mesh version of the shoe and it's still looking and feeling great after *10* years of wearing. I bought half a size (8 US for women) bigger than what I usually wear because the shoe is a bit thick inside. It doesn't look much bigger and the extra space is great because it leaves plenty of space to stretch the toes. I have arch issues and while I love plain soles and simpler designs (such as Asics Tiger Onistuka Mexico 1966 model), I have to stick to shoes that offer overall support for all parts of the foot, especially for the arch and the heel. I believe 574s feel so comfy because of the Encap higher sole. Other shoes that have a good sole design are Adidas Samoa, but this model of NB has that same sole, but almost doubled in height (almost an inch high?). My feet feel: the higher, the better, although I wouldn't opt for the monstrosity of Nike's Air Max. These are just too masculine and heavy for my taste.

The cons: they can be quite warm during spring and summer, so I have to put them in their box til it gets colder. The rain season is a big no no, since it can ruin the suede. I'm trying to buy both the Windbreaker version, which may be good for rain, and an all textile, no suede version for warmer temperatures, but I can't find my size anywhere :(

Another con: I don't like the "shiny" N logo on the sides and on the back, which is supposed to reflect light. I wish the logos were simply stitched. I understand these shiny thingies are for runners' safety, but these are casual shoes, not designed for running, anyway. Also, the shiny material is beginning to deteriorate while the rest of the shoe remains in good condition.

I love how stylish and retro they look, but I prefer neutral or solid colors, as opposed to the neon and wild newer versions. I have a big collection of sneakers and these are by far the most solid and comfortable ones. New Balance needs to make more sizes available, though.

These are so cute. I get compliments every time I wear them. I would say that these are definitely a fashion sneaker. They feel a bit stiff, and are not super supportive. They are perfect for casual comfort, but I wouldn't recommend them for exercise or anything.

These are great sneakers. I'm on my feet a lot for work, they are comfortable and don't hurt my back at all. Plus they're beautiful. I even spill chemicals on them and they haven't faded yet.

These sneakers are super cute! The shipping was fast, but the color is more of a highlighter green than yellow. Other than that it's fine.

The color scheme is everything! I get compliments every time I wear these sneakers. I prefer the windbreaker material over the suede, though they do not keep your feet as warm. There is very little arch support, but that can be alleviated with insoles.
