    "Maybe the best shoes I've owned for working out in an indoor environment. They have a tenacious grip on a wood floor, better than the gum-rubber soled "court" shoes I previously played squash and table tennis in. The ability to move laterally in these shoes is great, so you have the feeling of really being able to use the edge of your feet and the Probank technology provides a solid and comfortable platform for changing direction. And unlike those gum-rubber shoes, you can wear these on the street and have them on your feet when you walk to the gym, instead of having to schlep another pair of shoes and change when you get there. (And that saves money and a hassle.) The relatively low drop (8 mm) also provides a nice sense of balance. Also, because New Balance doesn't completely retool all their shoes every six months (but will modify them to accommodate new features), if you like these shoes, you'll be able to get them repeatedly, instead of having to go on a whole new search every time you wear out a pair of sneakers, which is an important consideration to me. A few caveats: I didn't love these right out of the box -- they do require a short break-in period. It took me about a week to start appreciating these shoes. And several weeks more to really love them. They're not hot-looking, but that was the least important criterion for me, but I sure wish they came in a simple white upper. Gray and green? Really?"
