New Balance makes wide shoes that are truly wide enough for people who need wide shoes. I am pretty happy with this pair. I am wearing them on clay and hard courts, and I like the stability and support that these shoes offer.
A more streamlined, lighter shoe than other New Balance models I have worn (804), which may explain why it is not quite as wide. Still found to be very comfortable after a short break-in period.
I returned this because it was not wide enough for me. The size 7.5 "D"/wide was not as wide as the New Balance 656 size 7.5 Wide that I've been wearing and like a lot.
