This is my third pair of these shoes that I have purchased, the previous purchases being in 2014 and 2013. Each pair has lasted me through the 10 months I play tennis on hard courts (at least 3 times a week). They fit my flat feet very well, and combined with cushioned insoles, they are very comfortable.

Shoes over all are good, but in terms of warranty, the herringbone wears off within about 3 months then your left with flat bottoms. I play tennis three times a week and if the herringbone doesn't last longer why pay the premium for the better shoe. Warranty worthless shoes

My husband needs a wider tennis shoe to accommodate bunions. He's been wearing these New Balance shoes for many years.
