Extremely comfortable and ergonomic shoe. Light and yet robust providing enough stability without getting your feet or back tired after a few hours of training. It does run a little small for me, but that's an easy fix!

way small and narrow for a 4E

The soles look like they will last but there is no way I can wear them that long. The toe area is not tall enough for a normal toe and the width is more like a d size. when I ordered a 4E. I ordered a half size longer than I normaly get and still the shoe fits really tight, in length and width.

More narrow than previous

These run more narrow than previous models. Had the same problem with 696 model, and had to retire them to yard work. After wearing these a few times, last night being the last my foot felt like it was broken this morning. Too narrow right across the knuckles of foot. Getting two pairs of 896 today, the last model that didn't hurt. I wear a size 8 EE, and have been wearing NB for years. NB, you really have to pay attention to the width in your wide sizes, read more

I think this one runs small, we had my son's feet measured and were told an 11 would work. Sending back for a 12.

Wicked tight
June 25, 2017
Thankfully I went to try on the 786. One year ago I purchased the 10 1/2 EE 786 and they fit great. Today I just tried on the exact same size and I could barely get them on. The store did not have EEEE in stock. I have been wearing New Balance for 40 years. Time to rededicate yourselves to excellence.

Very disappointed - Need to try it on for fit

I've always been a size 9 4E but found this shoe very uncomfortable and had to return it. It felt very narrow for a 4E. Probably due to the forefoot overlays. Local stores do not have this style so I couldn't go try it on in other sizes. The web-site is out of stock in the more interesting colors and not sure I want to have to order and return several more sizes to try to find a good fit. Overall, very disappointed as it sounded and looks great and otherwise read more

Great shoe!

I've been wearing New Balance tennis shoes for over 20 years now. I play on clay 5-6 times a week and these shoes have performed very well on this surface. I replaced the insoles with a custom pair that provides a higher arch. Other than a low arch, no complaints. Outsole lasts forever on the clay.

Didn't fit like last years sizing.

I had a size 10EE from last year, the red and black 786. It was a little big so I ordered a 9.5EE from this year and it is way too small. The sizing seems to have changed. The local new balance stores don't carry this model so I'll have to order both a 9.5EEEE and a 10EE from of this years model to get the right fit. Not sure I will do that.
