I wear a 6 wide, hard to find. Many other brands run narrow and don't even offer wide in small sizes. New Balance runs already full, and when I order the Wide it gives me the needed room. The fabric breathes enough for my sweaty feet to stay comfortable for hours on a hot court. I always insert my own orthotics (very high arches) into sneakers so that arch support combined with the good shoe construction gives both feet and ankles the stability I want. Pricey but you get what you pay for, and after I had a serious ankle strain 3 years ago I am not messing around with anything that doesn't offer optimal support and stability. My last pair were the previous NB equivalent style lasting 2 heavily used seasons and loved them.

This is a follow-up review. At first I really loved these shoes but after a few weeks of playing tennis in them I found one of the support straps that run from the sole to the laces presses into one of my foot bones. Also, the lack of stability and arch support caught up with me. Even with aftermarket insoles and thick socks, I can't wear them. Nice shoe but they didn't work for me. If you go with these shoes, order 1/2 size down.

Just got these and they are wonderful. Plenty of room in the toe box and lots of cushion. But the main reason I purchased this particular shoe is because I need stability - these certainly give it. I'm very happy with these and would buy them again. I went up 1/2 size from my normal shoe size, but I do tend to need to go up in any sneaker.

I'd also recommend: Brooks, New Balance, Mizuno

Love the shoe. Play tennis 3-4 times per week. Plenty of room for my orthotics. Love the New Balance shoes as the regular width accommodates my slightly wider foot nicely. My only comment is that the back is lower than the KSwiss that I switched from - no biggie; it just felt different at first but now I am used to it. Great support, great shoe!

I purchased these court shoes to play Pickleball here in The Villages, FL. Not only are the shoes comfortable and flexible, they look great, too! I cannot say enough good things about how well Zappos treats its customers! They are truly market savvy in every way and make each customer feel special.

I wear a 9 AA sho,e and those are hard to find. Thank goodness for New Balance, since most athletic shoe manufacturers ignore the fact that feet come in different widths, and that running around in a shoe that's too wide is not good for one's foot. Fortunately, they keep making this shoe, they just change the last number of the model periodically. This is my 4th pair. As has been true in the past, it runs one full size too small, though, so I know if I order a 10 AA I'll be fine. It's the only size 10 shoe I've ever had to buy. But the width is perfect.
