These are some of the best tennis shoes I've had and NB is the best shoe for my feet. However, despite comfort, the sole/toe ripped after 6 months of maybe 2 times a week wear. I'm working on warranty exchange/return.
Fly in these shoes
Love these light weight shoes. Comfortable right out of the box. Soft soles and low to the ground. It would have been nicer if they have a little more arch support like the barricades. The top of the shoes flex too much with extreme lateral movement. Needs to beef up the top front area.
I have used New Balance shoes before. Very comfortable and this is the same case here. Fit tends to be true (I am a size 10) and the sole life tends to be on the shorter side (6-month). Good traction and good comfort on the court. I am a 3.5-4.0 player who plays 2-3 times each week.
most comfortable tennis shoe out there........fit is great, no break in period needed.
Not sure yet
Shoe fits to standard size. Comfortable, not too heavy. Had shoes 3wks and tongue came loose. Gonna send it back to see if cov under warranty. Other than that the shoe is great.
Love the shoe but!!
I bought this shoe awhile back and it fit well and found it to be very comfortable. I bought three more pair and two out of three of them broke their seal where the sole is glued to the shoe. The last pair did so after only three times being used. Had to use crazy glue to hold it together.
I can't believe it!
New Balance had always been quality product to rely on for comfort, durability and function. Not this this model!! My second day I wore them in a doubles match, the tongue on my right shoe completely separated at the stitching to the box toe. So, basically I am the proud owner of new shoes that look great and have no purpose. It is so disappointing that New Balance has farmed out their manufacturing to a foreign country and thereby soiled their reputation.
My experience with the shoe as a low to the ground, speed oriented type was a good one. But in terms of durability, the 996's were pretty flimsy. They also weren't out of the box comfortable. They gave me blisters on my first day with them and their insoles fell apart. I'm pretty rough on shoes so maybe less aggressive players will have a better experience with them.
Fits perfect. Very comfortable. Well constructed. Good support. Sharp looking. Great buy.
Very nice styling and quality
Looks great and fits well.
Stylish shoe,feels great,light on feet i recommend this shoe.
Great shoes. Very comfortable right out of the box.
New Balance 996 tennis shoes
good price,no break-in period , comfortable, prompt delivery, and good traction. Haven't had long enough to comment on durability.
Love New Balance
This is a stylish, great fitting durable tennis shoe.
Ordered the NB limited edition shoe and was not disappointed. The shoe is very light on your feet but gives you comfort and stability. This stylish shoe looks as good as it feels. The sole gives you good stop and go action and is very low to the ground. It is a great quality shoe and is priced well.
