    Best tennis shoe I have ever tried.

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "I have 4E wide feet and New Balance is the only manufacturer I know of that makes tennis shoes that wide. These are excellent shoes on hard surface courts, great traction and can turn on a dime. Outsoles will never last me a year as claimed, as I play tennis every day all year round. I have tried other shoes that caused me severe foot problems. Best tennis shoes for me!"

    "This is the second pair of 806 shoes I have purchased. I like the shoe but the first pair separated at the sole and body. Ifi it happens again, I will buy no more!"

    Comfortable Shoe For Extra Wide Feet

    1/9/16 by | Scottsdale, AZ.

    • Used Product For: 4-6 weeks
    • Primary Activity: Other

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "I like this shoe a lot. I am a tournament player so I need a shoe that can take a pounding. I also have a 4E width so the choices for me are limited. This shoe felt great from the moment I put it on. There are much flashier looking shoes on the market but I thought it gave me excellent stability on the court. This is my first pair of this style so I am not sure how durable it will be. I will buy this shoe again without hesitation. I prefer it to the old 1005 model which has a mesh upper sole. I think the 806 does not roll over nearly as much when I am moving laterally and have to push off to get back to the center of the court. I think it fits true to size."

    Excellent Support and Comfort

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "I am a lifelong competitive tennis player and have tried many different types of shoes over the years. I suffered a ruptured Achilles' several years ago, and this shoe by far gives me the best support, comfort, and fit out of the box of any tennis shoe that I've worn. The only negative is that I would like to see better durability -- I only get 2-3 months from each pair."

    800 series quality

    • Used Product For: 2-4 weeks

    "I have purchased almost every 800 series tennis shoe being the only narrow width available. The quality has decreased in each succeeding shoe. Recently purchased 806 shoes are stiff feels k Like less shock absorbing soles. Punched holes for laces, etc.ww"
