They start out a little snug when I put them on but seem to loosen up every time. Not sure if a half size bigger would have helped but a good shoe.

First things first Zappos is the best online resource I have ever dealt with... courteous efficient and very price competitive.. as for the shoes New Balance is running about a size smaller than previous products and the D width s not as comfortable as it has been. So this pair of New Balance are size 10 EE when normal has always been 9.5 D but with Zappos they will work with you for a proper fit...can't go wrong.

I'd also recommend: Babolat

THESE SHOES ARE MEANT TO TENNIS, as such they are fantastic. YES they are tight across the top. THATS to keep control on the court, anyone running in them is probably a fool

I'd also recommend: Nike, and Addidas

Love the style of these.The fit and construction not so much. Very tight on the top of the foot at the base of the toes. Unusual. Also they pronate slightly outside in.I generally prefer the reverse. They are also quite stiff though this may change with wear.Soles and padding are very good. Grip on a hard court is excellent.

I am a woman with a wide foot. Recently- tennis shoes have been made with hard plastic/rubber- so even this Men's 7 New Balance 2EE is too narrow. No give. I have had great fit with K-Swiss for years, but now everyone is changing the last & toe box shape as well as stiff uppers. Terrible.
