    "New Balance is the only manufacturer that still makes a basic white basketball shoe. I am old school and really do not like all the colors with the shoes now days. I bought a pair and had a issue with them after about 90 days. I wrote a e-mail to New Balance and they told me too send them back and then they gave me credit toward a new pair. They took care of a problem with no questions asked. This is how a company gains customer retention. I am definitely going to buy my next pair from New Balance."

    Comfortable, light training shoe

    "I have bought these shoes twice and they are excellent for versatile training. The Fresh Foam makes them light and comfortable, yet they are durable. The first pair ran a bit bigger compared to the running shoes I wear, so I tried on a size smaller for my next purchase. Overall I am pleased with these shoes."

    "I looked everywhere for years looking for New Balance basketball shoes. As long as your selling them, I'll buy them! I am severely disabled, and I believe if they were more available, every disabled person would be impressed with the comfort. I would like more styles, and about 1/2 inch higher ankle support would be great. I ordered my shoes Tuesday afternoon, and I received them Friday morning. Excellent!"

    Chinese made, Not terrible for the price.

    "The 2e wide width is slightly narrower on this pair of Chinese made New Balance compared to the American made 2e's. Would've preferred American made like my last three pairs of New Balance shoes."
