    Simply The Worst!!!, December 4, 2011

    With almost absolute certainty these are by far the worst sneakers I have ever owned in my adult life! (I’m one month away from becoming 45.)

    New Balance should be down-right embarrassed and unequivocally ashamed of themselves! I bought this sneaker because New Balance discontinued my beloved 888HB model. What I expected was the great New Balance quality and fit that I was accustomed to over the years. What I got was absolute CRAP! The cut was different, the sizing was different, and the construction and materials used were shabby at best. A perfect example is this is that the rubber sole is so soft and flimsy that my feet fatigued easily and I could/can feel everything I’m walking or stepping on! Of course, this contributes what’s worst about this pore excuse of a sneaker: there is and never was any lateral, torsional, or support of any kind what-so-ever! Furthermore, what’s with the mid-high top??? This offered NO ankle support at all! I kept feeling pain across the area between my ankles and my feet where I tied the laces. Mid-highs are absolutely pointless! They offer none of the support of a proper high and pretend that they offer more support than a low. Give me a break!

    It would be a miracle if New Balance made a quality high-cut basketball sneaker again and adhered to some sort of standardized sizing system with their entire range of foot-ware.

    I rate this at NO STARS, but Amazon insists on at least one, which is one more than it deserves, and is one too many.

    The fit:
    These shoes are a MUST for anyone with extra-wide feet. My normal size is 14, so I ordered a 14 4E. They fit perfectly. If you suffer from extra wide feet and play a lot of basketball, don’t damage your feet because Nike refuses to make wide basketball shoes. New Balance has been great when it comes to making wide shoes, and these are no exception.

    Performance:
    Not bad at all. I get good traction on the gym floor, and they are just high enough to give me good ankle support. My games are 40 minutes long, so I don’t wear them for more than an hour, once a week. At this rate, they should last me a good year.

    I really love my New Balance BB581′s. I have a very wide foot,Size 13 4E’s, and these shoes fit wonderfully. I have a terrible time getting shoes to fit well and especially basketball shoes. These are wide and comfortable and have great support. I can’t say enough good things about the shoes and Amazon’s great service.
