Had to find basketball hightops for my son. Only New Balance fits him appropriately since he wears bilateral AFO's for foot drop

I have a 14EE foot, so finding shoes that fit is always a challenge. I play basketball frequently and NB is the only shoe that fits me. Unfortunately they have not invested in this area, so I am very limited with just 1 style (same style for the past few years). The shoe is not great, but it fits. This is my fourth pair of 581's. It would be nice to have a little change in the lineup...

The shoes seem put together well, but the back of the shoes is the week link. My 13 year old has 4 pair; all of them have issues on the back. The material is very weak & folds over very easily making them extremely uncomfortable...

these are the best basketball shoes I have ever owned. Price-wise Nike, Adidas and Under Armor can't compete with these. Though they look a bit old school, there performance does its talking, and it can walk its talk quite well. My only Wish is that these were available in 13 4E Navy/White or Navy/Black. Thank you NB for making these! Please don't ever stop!!!!

My son has wide feet and trouble finding comfortable shoes. He loves this style and we just buy the next size when he grows out of them. Please continue this line it's great for kids with wide feet for school and basketball. Happy kid, happy mom.

The shoe is priced low.looks nice.fit is not true to the 4E that I wear in other styles I get from same company. Not worth my time to send back because I wouldn't want to try others that may fit small like these did

I like them very much. Very comfortable and last. Had my old ones same style lasted little over a year. I do everything in them included riding my Harley . Realize I weigh about four hundred pounds.

As good a basketball shoe as I've experienced in my 60+ years of playing! The price is surprisingly reasonable. I usually purchase two or three pair at a time.
