"I have long been a New Balance fan. That is all that I wear, and my kids have worn New Balance most of their lives. My sons have to wear this particular shoe for school. One son is in his 7th year of wearing this shoe, and the other is in his 3rd year. In the past, this shoe has been fantastic, durable, comfortable, and, luckily, one of the only shoes that my sons can wear because they have wide feet. This school year, however, the older son has had 2 pairs of shoes come apart, beginning at the toe. The other son's shoes have also done the same thing. Mid-year the school stopped requiring this specific shoe, so I think we will need to look at other options for next year given the problems that we have had this year."

"I bought these for school for my kindergartener. He went through 2 pairs in less than 5 months. Both pairs came unsewn at the toe. There were strings getting caught up in the inside of the shoes and his toes were exposed to the outside."

Yes, I recommend this product.
"Our school dress code is all-black shoes. Found these after New Balance brand was recommended by a family member. Went to the local store, had my 7 year old son sized. Needed wide-width, not in stock. After they arrived over a month later, they ripped in the toe within one week. Called the store, ordered replacements. The second pair held up all school year, then the toe seam ripped again. A third pair we bought for athletics, same thing - ripping in the toe after normal wear and tear. All three pairs it was the left shoe. My son LOVES the velcro option and thinks they are the most comfortable shoes. The price is reasonable, and by the time they start falling apart he is ready for the next size up, so we will purchase them again."

"We have a difficult time finding shoes. Last fall bought two pair (a white and a black pair). They held up great. Today I am ordering new ones because the others are too small."
