La verdad dejan mucho pensar....
No los compren son son muy malos!!!
As far as 1) goes, they seem well made and sturdy, which is exactly what we've all come to expect from NB. No problems there.
It's 2) that's the problem as these seem to fit maybe a half-size large on my son, oddly enough. We opted not to return them as a second pair of socks seems to fix the problem for us and he's growing like a weed anyway, but I was surprised by this.
Update: Odd situation I've never encountered before. I ordered these and within two weeks, one of the rear heel cleats on my son's left shoe (his landing foot, as he's a righty and sometimes pitches) broke off about 75% of the way down. He's only about 4'10" and 85 lbs., so this seemed odd. I returned the shoes for another pair, figuring this was just a fluke, and maybe a bad production run with poor quality plastic/rubber or something. (Amazon, as usual, handled the exchange brilliantly, BTW.)
We've now had the second pair for about the same amount of time... and once again the very same cleat on the very same foot has broken off. Perhaps my son lands funny when he throws (something I've certainly never noticed watching him), but I've never had this problem on another pair of baseball shoes before and I'm stunned that a respected brand like New Balance is struggling to put out cleats that can handle the rigors of a 10-year old little leaguer's wear and tear for more than a week or two.
I still like the foot support, but baseball cleats simply need to hold up better than this.
Update #2: We're now three weeks into the second pair (after I just decided to ignore the one broken cleat) and no less than four cleats have broken off on the two shoes (see pics). Let me emphasize, this is from normal use by a kid who is not particularly muscular and who weighs <100 lbs, and who takes care of his equipment. You need to do better than this New Balance.
I've returned them for a refund.
The fit is perfect as he has a wide foot. I wish the quality of the shoe were much better, I'm not purchasing new cleats every other month.
