You always have the advantage with the revamped 696v3. Nail every forehand, backhand and groundstroke shot with newly designed elements like an updated herringbone outsole pattern that helps maximize performance on hard courts, perforation details in the forefoot that allow more breathability to keep you comfortable and a REVlite midsole for lightweight cushioning so you stay relaxed even as the competition heats up.
The New Balance men’s 696v3 features a durable leather/mesh upper and a lightweight, cushioned midsole to give you what you need to take on the competition.
12 mm drop: due to variances created during the development and manufacturing processes, all references to 12 mm drop are approximate
Herringbone Outsole allows increased traction for lateral motion and quick pivoting
An innovative foam compound providing the same responsiveness and durability of New Balance foams 30% heavier. REVlite offers a lightweight ride without minimizing construction or sacrificing underfoot cushioning or stability.
I am 82 years old and have been playing tennis for over 60 years so have gone through many pair of tennis shoes. For years I only wore Wilson Dirtmasters. I discovered NewBalance 600 series when Dirtmaster was discontinued. I have been totally satisfied for many years until I bought my latest pair of 696. They are just not comfortable, even after two weeks of breaking in, which I have never had to do in the past.
