I am a lifelong new balance consumer and my son has been wearing new balance too for the past few years. Their sneakers are usually consistent with the fit, quality, and durability.
These sneakers are the exception. They have broken in numerous places after light use from my son in under two months. The velro part, the toebox, and the elastic laces all majorly failed. They fit perfectly so it's not like they were stressed by an improper fit.
Getting less than two months out of sneakers is unacceptable.
