Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
So, this is our fifth model of New Balance shoes we've tried in this family, the third pair for this particular nine year old daughter. We first tried the KV888V1 in a size 3 (as seen in the photo I posted for this review) then we tried a pair of KV990V4 which I preferred, my daughter liked both of them equally. She outgrew those pretty quickly and I needed to move her up a size, I am glad that I went a whole size when trying these shoes instead of a half size, because I think these were a little small for a size 4. You can see in the photo I posted that they are barely longer than the size 3, and when I compared them to her sister's old cheap size 4 Target brand tennis shoes they were shorter than those size 4s. Anyway, these KA680 fit her fine in length so we lucked out. They have no arch support but we are used to that and she has orthotic inserts we use, the insoles on these shoes come out easily. I like that they are velcro, so does she, she can tie her own shoes and at age...
I bought five pairs of these shoes, and one seems to be defective. The inside tops/edge on both shoes have been falling apart since the first week of light wear. This pair is being worn by an adult. I waited to see how the other pairs held up when the kids started wearing them daily to school, my boys are so hard on shoes, and with 7 weeks of wear they look new, other than the dirt on them! They are comfortable and great shoes, but I'm concerned about the one pair that started falling apart immediately. Picture attached. I've contact New Balance, and now I need to contact amazon about a refund or exchange.
Great quality shoe! Very well made and tough. Light weight so they are easy on my sons feet they also provide great amounts of support for his growing feet. They are Velcro they do not have laces which bummed me out but doesn't take away from the quality of the shoe at all.
