    What a disappointment

    "Why can't shoe companies leave well enough alone? The 1005 was my favorite tennis shoe in a very long time. Roomy toe box, good fit in the heel, lots of cushioning. Of course, 2 months after getting my first pair I tried to get a second and they were discontinued, replaced by the 1006. This shoe is so narrow I can barely get my foot in it without a sock on. The toe box is very shallow, leaving little room for your toes and the shoe is much shorter than the 1005. Can't tell about the cushioning because I am so distracted by how much they squeeze my feet that I can't wear them long enough to tell if they are cushioned. I guess I have to search for a shoe again."

    Much smaller and less comfortable than the 1005!

    "At least a half sizer smaller and more narrow than the 1005. I bought the same size and D (wide) width as I wore in the previous incarnation of this shoe and after wearing them two times realize there's no way I can fit into these shoes and play tennis. The padding around the ankle is overdone, too. Darn. The 1005 was great."

    Great shoe for Zumba and other gym activities

    - Raleigh, NC, USA

    "These shoes are great for Zumba. I spend 5 hours a week in the gym and these shoes are so much more versatile than a running shoe which tends to grip the floor. Plus they are available in narrow. From now on it is court shoes for me!"

    Nice, comfortable court shoe.

    - San Diego, CA, USA

    "Nice, comfortable shoes. I have the wide shoes which provide plenty of room in the toe box."

    Great customer service and fit

    - Dillon CO

    "This was a warranty purchase as my prior shoes wore through the sole. New Balance sent me a voucher to use on any tennis shoes on their website. I ordered a shoe I hoped I would like and it turned out to be a better fit and better shoe than the one I replaced. The customer service could not have been better."

    Great support, yet flexible & lightweight

    - Long Beach, CA, USA

    "I inquired what was the upgrade tennis shoe from my last one. The 1006 was recommended. I've worn it at least 5x for tennis. It is supportive, lightweight and fits very well."

    great shoes - I use Superfeet inside them and work very well.

    - Rhode Island, USA

    "Have been wearing NB for years for tennis - narrow sizing works well for me. Like these new ones a lot."

    Great shoe!

    - Tucson, AZ

    "I just purchased these shoes for tennis. I play about 3 times a week. I have worn NB for many years now because I need a wide toe box. These are by far the best tennis shoes that I have bought. They are extremely comfortable and offer great stability. My only regret is that they are not offered in MORE colors!"
