    Fantastic shoe. Wears down pretty quickly if playing on hard courts. It works well on hard and clay courts. From a 3.5 player

    It is taking some time to 'break in' these shoes, compared to my past white New Balance

    "I think I will enjoy these nb shoes once I have 'broken them in', it's getting better with each time I'm on the tennis court w them, but they have not been as comfortable as other white nb shoes, even tho they are the same size!"

    not what I had in mind

    "Tennis shoes. The 1296 is supposed to be the replacement for the 1187. It doesn't do the same job. The toebox is not as high, and it is not as wide as the 1187. That means my arthritic toes don't have as much room to move around, and so they hurt more than the 1187. Also, the (more stylish I guess) tongue is too short, which makes it a lot more difficult to pull out when putting the shoe on. The general quality of the shoe is fine, but it doesn't do the job the 1187 did."
