Achilles Sore from Upper pushing into my achilles

I'm a 9.5 size in Solecourt Boosts and Barricades. I saw a good deal for these New Balance LAV foam shoes and saw the reviews were overall pretty good. However, after wearing it for three sessions of tennis, my achilles is incredibly sore. I'm limping around because of how tight the back upper is. It actually bends into my achilles. When I slide my foot halfway out of the shoe, my achilles takes a breath of relief. I thought there would be a break in period and typically I'd feel tightness along the sides of my feet but I don't get that. I'd warn anyone away from these shoes. It grips the court fine and playing on it does feel lighter than it actually is. However, having had torn my achilles previously, I know better than to play around in these shoes. It's 2 stars because outside of the achilles, the shoe feels good.

I like the color and the stability I get from wearing these shoes. I don't like the weight, they are heavier for me since I run a lot on the court. I do like the durability on the bottom and the width on them.

I like fresh foam, have 3 other pairs of running shoes, but don't like the sock like fit as well. Feels nice and snug, but harder to put on, and perhaps hotter than my other shoes. I also felt a little less stable on the court but have only had them for a couple of weeks, and will probably get used two them.

Shoes are heavy and fits tight even though I bought a half size larger. Do not recommend this shoe

New Balance Fresh Foam Lav is the gold standard shoe for tennis player or pickleball enthusiasts who value comfort, durability, and wider fit for your feet. There’s no break in time needed so you’ll be at ease and be ready to go for however many hours on the court. As a teaching professional, I understand and appreciate the craftsmanship of the Lav. You will too! Thank you, New Balance! Thank you, Midwest Sports!!

Excellent fit, lightweight and responsive, stability is rock solid. Has sock style instead of traditional tounge which eliminates the rub you sometimes get from a bunched up tongue and makes your foot feel like it is completely wrapped by the shoe.

I have worn New Balance tennis shoes for a long time always with good results. This Fresh Foam LAV shoe is absolutely the best New Balance tennis shoe I have ever worn. It is true to size and gives great cushioning. My feet and legs feel great after playing. Also the no tongue feature keeps your feet in place with no slipping. These shoes are amazing.

Yeah, well, these shoes do it for me. The fit is glove like, but not suffocating. Good amount of cushion, but not too much to disconnect me from the court. Only a minimal amount of break in is required. The shoe feels heavy in your hand, but not on your feet. I have a high arch & medium width foot. Little work to put on due to the bootie, but its performance cancels that out.

First of all, I love MidwestSports. Fast shipping. Shoes were comfortable. I order two other brands and plan to return the other two. This one fits well, especially the in-built sock like liner.

awesome shoe

I am constantly trying new Tennis shoes looking to reduce impact on my knees & New Balance Lav is the winner. It is an extremely comfortable shoe. They are a bit narrow went up to the 2E which was perfect. Use this shoe for Pickleball & Play 3 to 5 times a week

I play 3 days a week and the soles are very durable. Had these 4 months so far. My previous favorite shoes was the adidas barricade but they stopped making them (what a mistake, other adidas are too soft). The sock like in sole really locks your feet in. I would buy again.

Comfort and durability

Virtually no break in. Size is true. Love these. Second pair. I play 5-7 times a week and the wear was excellent on my first pair.
