    Worst shoe ever!

    - NY

    "I've never worn New Balance shoes, so I thought I'd try this pair. I ordered my usual recommended athletic shoe size of 6.5 wide (D) and I've never experienced a more ill-fitting, uncomfortable shoe in my life. Unfortunately, based on this experience, I would never try or buy another New Balance shoe."

    painful shoe

    - Kettering, OH, USA

    "I make a living on my feet, so I need good shoes. I have bought NB shoes many times before, but these shoes hurt my feet. I have tried to break this pair in like the rest of them, which were without issues, but these shoes still hurt my feet. its like they are narrow from the ball of the foot forward."

    Runs small and narrow, problem with pronation.

    - Boston, MA

    "I really wanted to love these shoes, but they just don't measure up. I love the look of this shoe, but I honestly will not play tennis in it. I have been wearing the 806 Motion Control for ages - and would like to have a better looking shoe - but these are a poor substitute. I have dreamed about having a custom-designed pair of these, but bought the standard version to try it out. First, I need an extra-wide, and the last on this shoe is not extra-wide. It's snug. Second, even though I tried removing the insoles, and inserting my arch supports, there is something about the way this shoe was designed that makes me feel like my feet and ankles are pronating. Third, I like to be able to run down a lob at full-speed, or lunge left and right for a ball, and this shoe does not give me a secure feeling of stability. Sorry, NB, but unfortunately, it's true. If you look up my records, you will see I have been an online customer since you started this website in 1999, and that I buy two or three pairs of new tennis shoes every year from you. Can't you make a shoe with the stability of the 806, with the great styling of the 996v2, in extra-wide?"

    very stable and great for my feet

    - Atlanta, GA, USA

    "I was wearing another brand for a while and I started to have very bad heel pain so I went back to NB and tried this tennis shoe. I have no more heel pain and my feet are always comfortable. I play a lot of tennis. I do take out the insole that comes in them and put in an orthodic (not custom). They run a little small and narrow so I wear 1/2 size bigger (9.5) and a wider width which is pretty funny because I'm 5'5" and weigh 130. They are incredibly comfortable though. I now own 3 pair."
