I have worn New Balance court shoes for 8 years and love them. I have a narrow foot and they are the only company I can find that makes them to fit me. I typically wear a 7-1/2AA but have always had to order an 8AA in court shoes; however, for this shoe I ordered the 8AA and it was too big. I ordered a 7-1/2AA and it fit perfectly. Don't know why the sizing is different on this shoe but that's ok as they are great. No break-in period required.
