I bought these New Balance Cross Trainers last year. I have heard many people say that this brand was the best shoes they have ever owned. I must agree with them. They are very comfortable and have great support inside the shoe. I would really like the New Balance company to add some color to the cross trainers in the future. I like a white shoe but with some blue or red accents. I own two pair of these shoes. One I use specifically for working out and the other for casual wear. I don't think that I will ever buy another brand of shoes again. I like the quality and durability of New Balance shoes. The soles are long lasting and hold up well with street wear. They clean up easy too. I would highly recommend New Balance Cross Trainers whether you are using them for a workout or just for casual wear.
