Son loved the shoe, but only lasted 6 weeks!
on November 8, 2013
Let me say that I'm a huge fan of New Balance shoes in general. My family of 5 is decked out in NB. I was excited that these shoes got such high reviews and ordered without hesitation. After a couple weeks of wearing, I noticed the stitching started to fray a little bit - no problem...just growing pains, right? Nope. They busted at the seams where the vent is, then the sole started coming off, then the stitching on the velcro strap, and finally they died today when the velcro strap came off completely. It's only been 6 weeks! I usually love the quality of NB, but this shoe did not hold up. Shame...
