    Heavier and stiffer than the 786

    When I heard the 786 was going to be discontinued, I bought two extra pair. I play on both hard and clay courts 3-4 times a week. My last pair of 786s were getting broken down (sole was still pretty good) and I reluctantly bought the newer 806. I've only had them on the courts a handful of times so far and they feel much stiffer and heavier than the 786. The break-in period is longer. There's more leather/plastic, and less vented area, particularly the on the toe box and the top around the instep. I need the wide width so my options are limited and these will probably be okay; sizing is similar at least. But, it is taking me a while to get used to the heavier shoe. Overall, the shoe is good for recreational tennis and the style is classic. I don't dislike them, but I don't like them as much as the 786,

    I bought this because I have bunions and wide feet. I need a womens extra wide width tennis shoe that can go the distance in a match. These hold up really well.

    My 60-something knees have been acting up, even with the use of custom inserts. I bought these shoes, played tennis with no break in time and felt no pain! Am considering buying another pair for daily wear. Great all around support but especially for my pronated feet.
