New Balance put most of their popular retro cool shoes into the hands of Asian manufacturers, so the sizing on these models is completely off:
574, 363, 501, 565, 515
That is why you will find so many reviews stating the fit is "too tight" and "too small" and several people explaining how they were too tight and too small even though they ordered a size larger and wider than usual like 2E or even 4E extra width sizes.
I found a website explaining this but since links may get removed in a product review, I'm just explaining what I learned.
The only people who are not going to think the sizing is off are people who have been buying these lines for the last 10 or 15 years and already are used to the weird sizing. These sizes are completely different from the New Balance models made in the USA or UK.
576, 577 and 996 are all Made in the USA or UK and will be very comfortable and regularly sized. They will also be much more expensive. New Balance models made in the USA or UK will almost always be over $100, typically about $139 and sometimes on sale for as low as $79, but never lower than that unless it's the most unpopular design ever... For example, there is one model of 996 on Amazon right now that looks nothing like a retro cool sneaker; I have no idea why they called it a '996' anything. It looks like a futuristic mini-van:New Balance Men's MC996 Lightweight Tennis Shoe, Grey/Green, 10 2E US. So, if you're looking at a shoe with price range of $39 - $79, chances are that it is Asian made and the size will be too small and too tight.Read more ›
Update: 9/26/14: The tread under the ball of the foot is completely gone except along the inner edge of both shoes. Right shoe has a hole in the sole, and the foam mid-sole is showing. Left shoe is starting wear through to the foam mid-sole as well. Purchased 3/24/14, so they arrived exactly six months ago today (two-day shipping). They're very comfortable, and I think they look nice, but I wouldn't buy them again for how quickly they wear out. I have never exercised in them, unless you count running like half a block to catch a bus as "exercise." Other than that, I've gone on some long walks, but generally just wear them daily for school, going out, etc. I'll include pictures if I can figure it out.
I should also say that the shoe is stretching out, so I expect it to eventually fit comfortably. But it's a slow process :-/
ORIGINAL (SILLY) REVIEW:
I must say that a large part of the glowing review I'm about to give is due to the color of my shoes, which, incidentally, is not shown among the dozen or so variants available here. My pair of 574's are mostly black, with light grey "N" logos stitched on, a white strip above the sole, white portions by the top lace eyelets, and a PALE YELLOW rear "kick guard" or whatever you'd like the call the plastic strip on the back. This particular combo looks killer, and I don't see it here.
But I digress... Typically, when one goes to buy a casual sneaker, they have two things in mind: Looks and comfort. Sometimes, comfort even comes AFTER looks if you are really bent on your appearance. Versatility and longevity are OFTEN not primary factors.Read more ›
