    "These are pretty much the best shoes ever made. The comfort level is unparalleled. I travel extensively to and throughout China. I'm always on my feet and walking with heavy loads. These are the only shoes I have wore that don't cause extreme foot pain during and at the end of the day. Kudos!"

    Toe depth not sufficient.

    - Putnam, CT

    "I love New Balance but couldn't afford to spend the money I have spent on 990. Thought the 574 would be a good shoe. It lookded good. After wearing for one day, my toes are so sore. The toe depth is not sufficient. It presses down on the toes. Took my socks off and my toes are red where the shallow toe part pushes down. Really disappointed. Now I have to figure out which shoe I can order. No NB store within 55 miles of my home. My old 990 and 993 can't be worn anymore. They have been worn to extinction but the 574 is NOT the replacement. Why did NB make the toe depth so shallow?"

    Simply the Best

    - Washington, DC

    "My New Balance 574 walking shoes are of the best that i have ever owned. Unlike the 990v series they provide outstanding support for my entire pedal. Especially, i like the rugged craftsmanship of this product: Tough suede upper with toe protection; Durable shock absorbing rubber outsole; and, comfortable midsole cushion. Yess!"

    Go 574's Go

    - Capitol Heights, MD

    "I've been a big fan of New Balance for the last eight years and the 574 Classic is one of my favorites from New Balance."

    Just what I was wanting

    - Burnsville, Minnesota

    "I wanted a new pair of walking shoes, but I didn't want another pair like the 928s that are all white and show dirt following just a few wearings. These 574s were just what I wanted -- some color but not a multiple-colored scheme. I purchased these in gray, and they are nice-looking and quite comfortable. They weren't specifically identified as to shoe type, but they make a good walker."

    Would never switch from NB but they are becoming increasingly uncomfortable.

    - Bala Cynwyd, PA, USA

    "These are probably my 10th or so NB sneaker in the last 25 years. I started wearing them because of my super wide feet and they have been great. My last 3 purchases however have been a different story. It takes about a month to break in with the sizes becoming smaller and tighter than ever before. After starting at a 9.5 2E 20 years ago and up until about 5 years ago, I now need a 10 4E which they don't make. I feel like the shoes need a huge breaking in period, which I hate, but once they are worn in to your feet they will be great."

    Great product

    Most comfortable walking shoes I've ever had

    - Santa Cruz, CA, USA

    "I came across these shoes purely by accident, where I saw them displayed in a shoe store. I tried them on and they were so comfortable, I looked for them on the internet and ordered them from the New Balance website. The surprising thing is that these are men's shoes and I'm a woman. Maybe that's been my problem all along. I've been buying the wrong gender of shoes! My only complaint is that the shoe laces are pretty short. I barely have enough lace to tie them, but I can. These shoes are attractive and very comfortable. And I think they would be good for men or women."

    A good shoe for the money.

    - Las Vegas, NV, USA

    "It is extremely difficult to get a good fit. After several exchanges and a very slow delivery process, I'm satisfied. It's a good shoe for the money."

    I had bought a couple of pairs of the Grey 574 shoe at my favorite shoe store in Santa Cruz, Ca., Old School Shoes. They didn't have any recently, so

    The last two pairs of shoes I have purchased did not fit well. I kept one pair that I rarely wear and return the last.

    - Illinois, USA

    "The shoes no longer fit. Sizes do not seem to be the same. Wear 9.5, width 2E. Toes are cramped and fit is to tight. Returned one pair and rarely wear the earlier purchased pair."
