COMFORTABLE but NOT DURABLE. I played tennis in these, do a lot of back and forth planting and running, and within a year of playing maybe once a week, the right shoe where the top/outsole leather connects to the bottom sole/rubber just burst and shred wide open from all the stopping/direction changes. So while they feel great and are super comfortable, and for me really helped prevent my toes from mashing up against the front of the shoe (and bruising/breaking toenails), and even though the soles held up as well as any other brand, I simply can't recommend these because I've never had this happen with any other brand - where the shoe just ripped wide open from running and planting. A tennis shoe should be designed to withstand that, as it's a huge part of the game. That being said, they were great while they lasted, but I expected to get another 3 months at least out of these, as per my usual with other brands. Bummer.

A well-made shoe at a competitive price. Solid heel support. Good sole cushioning. Fine lateral support for court movement.

I'd also recommend: Asics

After wearing holes over the big toe spot on several pairs of athletic shoes, I ordered these largely based on the diagonal reinforcement on the upper toe box (also because I like the fit of New Balance). This seems to have done the trick. I love these shoes, and plan to continue ordering them, so I hope this shoe will remain available for a long time.

The shoes came quickly and have been just what I had wanted for tennis. They are also not as expensive as some, which I appreciated.

I'd also recommend: new balance has a great selection in large sizes.

These shoes are extremely comfortable. I wear them to play pickle ball and they allow me to move and stride with complete confidence. Zappos shipping was fast. And they are made in the U.S.A.
