5.0 out of 5 stars | New Balance. All I need to know.
Size: 12 X-Wide Color: Blue
I bought these for my 21 year old autistic son. He's isn't overly aggressive on his shoes and has had similar New Balance shoes so I suspect these will last just as long as his old pair have. It was just time for some new wheels. They are kind of bold in color and I was kind of surprised he liked them but that's cool. He isn't a fan of the black laces so he wished for me to order up a different color. YELLOW! LOL These fit his size 12 4E wide feet perfectly and he says they are very comfortable except for the arch support as he has flat feet. I told him it would just take a few wearings to break them down a bit with his massive body and bulk. He is a big boy. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the fact that the eyelets are pretty narrow and so feeding laces through them is a bit laborious. New Balance is the shoe of choice around this house. We all wear them.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Oooo, these are nice!
Size: 15 X-Wide Color: Black/Black
I’ve never owned a New Balance product before, but I found these when looking for a lighter weight shoe that didn’t cost an arm and a leg like Frees usually do. Knowing that all shows fit differently I did decide to order a 15. Mainly because even though I wear a 14-15 it always seems on these lightweight shoes I seem to need bigger sizes. But it looks like I chose right because they fit great and aren’t too tight or anything at all. They feel great and are nice and light. Now my uses might differ a little bit from normal peoples. I use them for everyday use and for gaming. Yeah. I usually employ lightweight shoes on music and rhythm games such as Dance Dance Revolution since it’s a lot easier to run your feet with running shoes versus clunky skate shoes. I can’t comment on durability yet but looking st the bottoms of the shoes they don’t look like they’ll peel apart like my Frees usually do. Here’s to hoping. Overall I am really glad I purchased these. They’re really nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars | Love these shoes
Size: 10.5 X-Wide Color: Blue
These are very perfectly fit to my feet. The bottoms are like a memory foam and they do not bottom out on me at 190LBS. The look is clean and it breathes very well. Will look at getting these in black too, I have the bright blue ones.

3.0 out of 5 stars | Very Meh Shoe
Size: 9.5 X-Wide Color: Light Aluminum/Lead
A light weight, cheap running shoe. It’s a deal at the price of 20- something, but you get what you pay for. The inner pinning is a very rough material and will quickly cause blisters on your Achilles tendon area. So high socks are a must when running with these shoes. The laces are rather thin and flimsy feeling, so you may want to replace them with better quality. As for the sole of the show, it is a single piece of rubberized foam without flexible crevices, so it’s bit stiff. All in all, three stars. Not bad, not great.

3.0 out of 5 stars | muy comodos, pero al parecer no son muy duraderos.
Size: 9 Color: Light Aluminum/Lead
compre estos zapatos exclusivamente para correr y hacer mis entrenamientos de calistenia. en términos generales están muy bien, son cómodos, livianos y bonitos, ademas encajan bien. el detalle es que estos zapatos traen una tela interna que es arropada por una tela tipo malla, a través de los agujeros de la tela de malla puedo ver mis medias en la parte delantera del zapato, la que pega en mi dedo pulgar del pie (dedo gordo) es decir, ya la malla interna se rompió, la del zapato izquierdo, y la verdad los zapatos están muy nuevos aun. supongo que esto no debería pasar con tan poco tiempo de uso (2 meses) por esto les doy 3 estrellas, ya que el zapato se ve muy bien, los detalles de fabrica están bien, pero...

5.0 out of 5 stars | Great shoe for the money
Size: 10.5 Color: Black/Black
The New Balance Men's Draft V1 running shoe is a very comfortable shoe. I don't run but I do a lot of walking and because shoe are so light weight, it's like waking on air. And not only that, they are good looking!

1.0 out of 5 stars | 2020 > These shoes
Size: 11 Color: Black/Black
Don’t let the low price fool you! The saying “you get what you pay for” applies to these shoes. While they look stylish and sporty, that is all they provide. Zero comfort. I bought two pairs because Newbs always had a great rep, were comfortable, and for the price I was in heaven. Completely wrong on my end. These shoes provide -10,000.43% support and comfort. Well I would love to keep thinking of other ways to say DONT BUY and STAY AWAY but I have to go search for new all black uniform tennis shoes.

5.0 out of 5 stars | New Balance my all time favorite athletic shoe
Size: 12 X-Wide Color: Black/Orca
I love New Balance shoes this is probably my 15th pair I have very wide feet and not many shoe makers offer the 4E width. I actually bought 2 pairs of these the black and red and white trim, and the white and red trim when they arrived I was a little surprised because I didn’t realize they were the exact same style as the all black ones I had on. Lol so 3 different colors all of the same shoe yeah I guess I like them a lot. Plus they are so light when they were delivered I thought they forgot the shoe and just sent the box
