Poor fit and waterproofing
I'm a big New Balance fan, but like the earlier reviewer said, this shoe leaked the first time it rained - the leather is waterproof, but the sole connection to the upper is not sealed. Also, these are the first NB I've owned that are sized a half size small (needed to go up 1/2 a size, but the fit isn't quite right). Also, and I know this is a little intensen, but I don't think the last is correct - if you place the show on a table it wobbles from side to side - a big deal if you do a lot of walking or have foot issues. I do really like the look, so do wear them casually!
