I have been wearing 11.5 4E New Balance court shoes for 10 years. This is the first pair of them which have caused toe problems when I add the good NB insoles. I'm not happy with them.

I've been a loyal NB customer for over 30 years (both tennis and running). Love all NB products...until now. The 786 is the first NB shoe I've ever owned that didn't fit properly. At my name to the 75% who have said the shoe runs small and narrow.

Great Shoe!

Fencing shoes are hard to find and expensive so many fencers wear court shoes. For me, this shoe is every bit as good as any of the purpose-built shoes. I suspect it would work well for tennis, racquetball or squash too. I have pretty average feet and a D width has always worked perfectly for me. With this shoe, I had to step up to a 2ee. Even that was a bit tight but broke in within half a day. The length was true to size. The only question remaining read more

Extremely comfortable and ergonomic shoe. Light and yet robust providing enough stability without getting your feet or back tired after a few hours of training. It does run a little small for me, but that's an easy fix!

way small and narrow for a 4E

The soles look like they will last but there is no way I can wear them that long. The toe area is not tall enough for a normal toe and the width is more like a d size. when I ordered a 4E. I ordered a half size longer than I normaly get and still the shoe fits really tight, in length and width.

I think this one runs small, we had my son's feet measured and were told an 11 would work. Sending back for a 12.

Wicked tight
May 05, 2017
Thankfully I went to try on the 786. One year ago I purchased the 10 1/2 EE 786 and they fit great. Today I just tried on the exact same size and I could barely get them on. The store did not have EEEE in stock. I have been wearing New Balance for 40 years. Time to rededicate yourselves to excellence.

These run more narrow than previous models. Had the same problem with 696 model, and had to retire them to yard work. After wearing these a few times, last night being the last my foot felt like it was broken this morning. Too narrow right across the knuckles of foot. Getting two pairs of 896 today, the last model that didn't hurt. I wear a size 8 EE, and have been wearing NB for years. NB, you really have to pay attention to the width in your wide sizes, read more

Only wide size clay court shoes I could find. 2E was too narrow. 4E plus 1/2 size fit. I wish the shoes were lighter and more airy for Florida.
