"I wanted to love these shoes. I have been in need of a nice looking sneaker for a while, and thought these were it. I had recently purchased an entry level "made in usa" new balance shoe and was disappointed in its quality. Raw edges, cheap feeling, mediocre construction, etc. So I returned those. Then I tried these. They looked A LOT better in the photos than my previous purchase. They also looked of higher quality, since they are made from nicer materials. When I received the shoes, I thought they did look nice -- but not the wow I was hoping for. Again, I was also disappointed in the craftsmanship. On the very back of the shoe, you could see where excess glue got onto the suede when the sole was being attached and was wiped off. This was the case on both shoes. Especially with suede, this flaw was apparent when the light would hit those areas. And similarly to the other shoe, there were areas with raw edges -- Not as many, but some where still there. Since this shoe is one of the "higher end" New Balance shoes, I was expecting better. The leather felt nice, the shoe did look pretty good, but I just wasn't wow'd. I sent them back for a refund and bought something a little nicer elsewhere. For what its worth, I bought these more for fashion than anything else."
