Very cool, nearly denim looking exterior styling on the navy variant. Came with both navy and cream colored laces.

After a few days of wear they are nearly as comfortable as a pair of house slippers while also offering a very acceptable level of support. The out sole seems to be made of high quality rubber and the EVA midsole offers a great level of spring and comfort.

Overall great kicking around town shoe, I'm actually considering getting the charcoal variant as well!

The details are key in making this shoe what it is. From the sueded parts of the upper to the ripple sole which matches the accents on the tongue and heel. The classic styling and attention to detail give this shoe a timeless and casual "goes well with jeans and a hoodie" look.

As with all other New Balance shoes, there is more than enough support and cushion to make you thank yourself each evening for slipping these on every morning.

Great styling on the exterior, with vibrant updated colors while maintaining the classic 574 profile. Sizing seems to be right on the money, if anything it runs just slightly small. Traditional flat laces are also included if the round cord laces aren't your style. The midsole and durable rubber outsole make for a very comfortable fit, even on hard concrete.

Definitely looking forward to the same comfort and durability 574's have given me in the past!

Screws on well and has a great silicone seal against the lip of the hydroflask. A must have if you plan on drinking coffee from your bottle; lest you end up with hot coffee in your beard like a savage.

Flip top clicks down very well and after a few months of daily use still makes the positive click when open or closed.

Love it!

I had a pair of these several years back and wore the tread down to the point of no traction. So naturally I got another pair.

I must say, they seem to have not changed a bit in regard to comfort and durability. I can go from 10 miles walking and standing on concrete floors for 8 hours at the workplace to hitting a soft, muddy trail after hours and these shoes don't flinch. I can strongly recommend these shoes to anyone who expects and values versatility, comfort and durability in their shoes.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

This backpack was a gift for my wife, in the High Risk Red/White Sylvia Dot pattern. She loves the pattern and all of the stitching and seams are still very much intact even after having been overstuffed. Not just for school, this backpack has also been great for overnight trips and to use on vacations.

I wear these about 5 or 6 days every week, pounding about 6-8 miles of concrete each day. They perform admirably and look good doing it. The tread is holding up very well as is the suede leather upper. I recommend these for anyone looking for a comfortable, durable, no frills sneaker that won't leave your dogs barking.

Very well insulated and durable bottle. I've had ice last for up to 24 hours from room temperature to outdoors as well. Yes the narrow mouth is barely too small to fit ice from typical ice cube trays, but that is easily solved by only filling an ice tray halfway or using a tray with smaller molds. If the narrow mouth is not a preference for you, then I would highly recommend any of the standard mouth or wide mouth hydro flasks as well!

The larger size of this bottle means less fill ups, but is still a convenient and easy to grip size. As usual with camelbak bottles, the bite valve is durable and has proven to stand up to even more drops and abuse than the previous generation of bite valves. Highly recommend this bottle!

Between the very attractive design and above average functionality, it's hard to go wrong with this bottle. I've been using it everyday over the last week and have dropped it from waist high and shoulder high on asphalt and concrete with only a few small scratches to show for it. Bottle has laid on its side in the car seat and floorboard and I haven't noticed any leaks. The rubberized handle and improved bite valve make the probability of breakage nearly inconceivable, short of being stomped by Godzilla or trampled by a Brachiosaurus herd, Jurassic Park style.

The weight of this fleece makes it perfect for those 40-55 degree fall days, where a full down jacket is too much, but a sweatshirt just doesn't cut it. The drawcord on the hem is very handy and all the zippers and seams exhibit attributes of high quality material. Ordered in Dark Moss/Surplus Green. The dark moss is more of a charcoal color than a green. Overall great jacket for the money and one I plan on having in the closet for a long time.

This hoodie is very soft on the inside, and unexpectedly warm for the weight of material. The stitching is well done and the front logo is a higher quality screening than most. For sizing purposes, I'm a slim build, 6'4" 185lbs, and the XL had enough length in the sleeves and back for my liking, without being too baggy in the chest .
