Started out comfortable but...

Comments about New Balance Women's Fresh Foam Boracay Running Shoes:

For the first couple times I used them they felt good but quickly became uncomfortable in the area where the laces are and made the top of my feet hurt. I returned the them after a week.

Almost perfect but disappointingly not

By Mom of active toddler

Comments about New Balance Women's Fresh Foam Boracay Running Shoes:

I got a 9.5 in these shoes like I do in other athletic shoes that fit well. These shoes were almost perfectly comfy. The length was great. The width was great for my narrow feet but still had good room for my toes to move around. The insole felt great when standing and absorbed shock when running. They rocked forward nicely when I ran, giving me a nice spring in my step. In other words, great for standing and watching my toddler play, walking through the zoo, or quickly sprinting to get him out of trouble.

However... The tongue is padded and hits the crease in front of my ankle no matter how I lace them. I tried really hard. I really wanted to these shoes to work, but I just couldn't get past it.
Also, I was really hoping to find a pair of royal blue shoes. New Balance's website lists these as being blue, so I ignored the fact that Sports Authority lists them as purple. The main color is royal blue, but it could easily be mistaken for royal purple up next to the teal and lavender accents. I would have preferred the accents to be more turquoise and periwinkle to bring out the main blue. If the color had been what I wanted, I might have tried to find some higher rise socks to mitigate the tongue issue, but both of these issues together were a deal breaker. If I'm going to pay that much for a pair of shoes, I can't compromise both fit and look.
