I read the other reviews before ordering about the toe box being wider on these as compared to other models and am happy I based my decision to order off of that because it's true!

After I got these, I went back and looked again, and it was still hard to tell how clunky these were going to be. They are comfortable, and they are made in the USA, which were two reasons I buy New Balance, but these are not attractive shoes, at least on me. They are somewhat reminiscent of Skechers Shape-Ups without the actual rocker bottom. I will just have to scrutinize the photos more carefully next time around.

I ordered these shoes based on reviews here. The toe box and fit are good. I like the support. They are not heavy and were fine running. However, just as I had them broken in (about a week and a half), the lace hole broke. The two interior side middle holes for the laces are a thin, suede-like material with a fabric backing: the lace popped one open while I was tying my shoes and the other hole of similar construction looks ready to go as well. I don't know if this is a manufacturing flaw in the shoe I received or a design flaw- given the thinness of the material, I would suggest it is a design flaw. I don't think there is even enough material to stitch it back together, very disappointed with this product.
