Very lightweight and comfortables shoe, just what I expected from New Balance. However,this shoe has THE flimsiest tongue I have ever seen in a shoe. It's beyond annoying! Every time you stick your foot in the shoe, the tongue shoots straight back into the toe box. You pretty much have to sit down or bend over to put your shoes on every time. I'm very disappointed, and will not be buying this shoe again.
So I've gone hunting for a worthy new shoe brand and sadly both puma and new balance have struck out with me.
Both shoe brands have hard soles. Not as hard as those dr scholes shoes wal mart used to sell (ironically they were the hardest shoe ever made- it was just like concrete), but still not good enough to go without custom insoles.
Seriously, don't you just love it when you buy shoes that have a clear gel heal blob embedded in there, but you press on it, and its the hardest plastic you ever did feel? Cheap shoes are hilariously bad.
Maybe I need to buy the more expensive new balance shoes to get proper soles? Dunno, I just know every nike shoe I ever bought, didn't need insoles, so this brand probably isn't for me.
Is it really soo hard to just make a shoe that looks good but also has a croc shoe type of bottom? Ya know, something nice to actually walk on?
The rest of the shoe is good if you are wondering though. Sturdy so far to. I'd give it 4 or 5 stars if it wasn't like walking on wood.
The Arishi's are brand new so I can't speak to overall durability (yet), but they do seem to have less support around the toe, sides and even top of the shoe, relying more upon the fabric. This makes them lighter which is certainly nice for runners, but I wonder what that'll look like in 3-6 months with CrossFit.
Also concerning is the size. The Arishi's squeeze my feet from the sidez toward the front of the shoe, near the bottom of the laces around the balls of the feet, in a way that the 517's simply didn't despite them both being size 12. There is also notably less room at the toes in the Arishi's even when you account for the fact that the 517's are broken in from use. I put the soles of the 517's against the Arishi's and sure enough, the Arishi's ARE a tad shorter in length from heel to toe, maybe by as much as half a shoe size.
I'm keeping the Arishi's as they didn't bother me when I used them to work out, but it's definitely worth noting that they fit smaller/tighter.
