    "This is my 8th pair of 696 from NB and I will continue to use them. I am on the court 2-3 hours everyday and they provide the support I need and the wear to go the distance. I couldn't recommend them anything but the best. I give them a 5 star."

    "Look good. Comfortable but shows spots easily. So, they are not very dirt resistant."

    NB 696v2 - Solid inexpensive shoe

    "Good looking product. Shoe height seems a bit shallow. Width and length fit true for NB shoes. They do not have a ton of support but I am heavy and have wide flat feet. I have worn them for approximately 20 hours on hard courts and the back heel is showing some noticeable wear, so these may not last that long. Orthotic inserts can be used."

    Not wide enough

    - Napa, CA, USA

    "I bought another model and the standard width was good enough. This model is much thinner."

    Awesome court shoe.

    - Seattle, WA, USA

    "My new favorite court shoe. Very comfortable and stable. I have, at times, heal pain...not with this shoe."
