4 Stars Great shoes for the price

Love the shoes because of fit, comfort, quick delivery, and price. Don't know yet whether the good lateral support will last for a reasonable time.

5 Stars Wide Equals Comfort

I have bought these shoes twice now and have not been disappointed. They feel great right away, they are very durable, and they are a great value.

4 Stars High Quality / Low Price

from TX wrote (July 23, 2014):

No break in required, unlike many pricey shoes that look fancy but were very uncomfortable even painfull even after several wearings. Cushioning and support very good. Out Sole the most durable I have owned (I have had various pairs with 6 month garanty did not impress) and very good grip of the court. Very comfortable shoe. My feet feel great in these shoes. Am surprized by the quality of these shoes. Shoes look kinda generic.

4 Stars Good tennis sneakers

from CT wrote (July 23, 2014):

So far it's all positive. I bought the sneakers as I thought they'd be more breathable than my K-Swiss and older NB. So far that appears to be accurate, but the votes aren't in yet on durability. so we'll see.

5 Stars Great Wearing Shoe

No break in required. Feels great and good support when playing.

5 Stars Special shoes

Just bought my second pair of these shoes. I have some serious foot issues, and most shoes are not adaptable for fitting. But these? Terrific! No pain, no sores. And a terrific price!

4 Stars Good shoe, cost effective

I own three pair that I rotate with some other NB shoes. I like that they support US manufacturing, although mine are not US-made. The Ndurance guaranty only applies to one pair per customer lifetime.

4 Stars like it.

5 Stars Light and Great Feel
