    I really wanted to love these shoes, and was so excited to have bought them, but while they are very comfortable, I've also experienced a few problems.

    1. Slippery!
    Beware with these shoes - the soles are quite slick in the rain; even though the soles are rubber, I think it's the pattern being quite shallow that causes this problem. I found this out the hard way... I have since worn them again in wet weather, but have to be extremely careful walking along smooth surfaces. It is just too easy to pivot on the ball of your foot in these.

    2. Colour
    Another issue I had with these is the colour. I loved the colour from the photo - I thought the orange was more a salmon/peach colour, however the orange is very strong and bright (almost fluoro) and definitely not peach. The blue is also a lot brighter than I expected. I ended up brushing a thin layer of black shoe polish over those parts just to make it a bit less garish (those bits aren't black, more a shaded orange/blue now)... Of course the whole point of buying colourful sneakers is to wear colourful sneakers, but if I'd seen these in a shop I wouldn't have bought them based on the actual colour.

    3. Size
    Not so much an issue, but just to hopefully help others decide on the correct size. I wear 8.5 in New Balance but sometimes the 8.5 can be a snug fit lengthwise, with little toe room if the shoe is thickly padded. That was the case with these - my big toe has less than 0.5cm to spare, so it's thin socks only with these. Although width in the 8.5 is just right, I think I could have gotten the 9 without it feeling too big.

    4. Not breathable
    There are no meshy bits on the synthetic parts of these shoes, which can make your foot feel very hot.

    I wanted some sneakers that could be worn with jeans that would not look like big ugly white sneakers and these were perfect. They do run a tad big, so if, like me, you are between sizes you should take the smaller size.

    I already knew that I loved this style of New Balance's (WL574) so it was sort of a no-brainer when I saw these gorgeous colors. These shoes are comfortable for walking and running (at least up to 3 miles - I'm not much of a runner) and are fashionable to boot.

    It looks like the only color they are offering now is purple. I own the grey ones with the orange and blue accents. The colors are super bright, and I LOVE THEM. I wear these all the time. While I was waiting to find the perfect running shoes, I had been wearing these for walking/jogging, and honestly, they are still more comfortable than any of the running shoes I own.

    Wore these on vacation in New Orleans, we walked over 5 miles a day, and my feet still felt fine.

    I have a wide toe span, but a narrow heel, and I'm flat footed, but these shoes are perfect.

    They rubbed a little the first few times I wore them, but I just wore them with thick socks, on quick errands, and they broke in within a few weeks.

    I'm actually on Amazon right now to see if I can find these in some different colors.

    I only buy new balance tennis shoes, and this is my favorite pair I've purchased! I ordered the same size I wear in all new balance shoes and they fit perfect. I work in a hospital and wear these shoes over 40 hrs/week (many of which I'm on my feet)- after wearing them for 5 weeks, they are still comfortable and holding up well. The product arrived within the seller's predicted time frame. They also shipped with an extra pair of shoe laces that are lime green. I definitely recommend these shoes!

    First thing is this was shipped very fast. I ordered it on a Thursday and it was here the next day on Friday.

    These shoes are very comfortable and supportive. I have had 3 surgeries on my foot with metal inside and I found these shoes have alot of support with a hard sole bottom, but very comfortable. But great thing is they are super cute!

    Just to let people know that the yellow is extremely bright, almost like florescent yellow. But other then that I have no complaints! If you have feel problems, these are good if you need a hard sole shoe that is cute!

    I wore these shoes for the first time while out sightseeing in New York City. This was not a good idea. I probably walked a good 15 miles, but my feet and legs would hardly go another step by the end of the day and I had blisters on the bottom of my toes and ball of my foot. I was very disappointed in the comfort of the shoe. These shoes are great for walking around shorter distances and for a shorter period of time, and they look good.

    My first NB - Really happy with these shoes - great for walking, some light jogging and very comfortable on the feet.
    Runs true to your size - I tried these on in store to make sure.
    Would recommend these as much as the nike free run - if not better quality.
