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.

I am a 4.0 tennis player who plays five times a week. I always keep a supply of these shoes around. They need no breaking in, they are very comfortable and supportive. If you play a lot, the support breaks down and you will need a new pair every few months, but these are really great shoes. I have had at least 10 pairs.

My foot is really hard to fit. I have a wide foot with a high arch and a very high instep. This is the only tennis shoe I found that fit and actually feels natural on my foot. I like the lightweight mesh and leather combination. When I am playing tennis, I do not notice the shoe at all. There is plenty of shoelace to tie a bow (that seems like a trivial concern, but some shoes include short laces that won't sufficiently tie over my instep). If this sounds like you, you will probably appreciate this shoe, too!

I love these shoes! I wear New Balance because they come in a narrow width. But this is the first time I have bought the WC1005. They are lightweight and very comfortable. I play tennis just about every day of the week and they are wearing well. I will definitely buy these shoes again.

These tennis shoes are my favorites. They are comfortable, they breathe well and they hold up very well. I like the old-fashioned white tennis shoes, so these fit the bill.

My heels slip out but they also rub a blister on back of my heels. I guess the sides of the heelbed are too wide (and I have wide feet) but the back of the heel stops short. When the strings are tied securely enough they cut off blood circulation to the bridge of the foot. I walked around my house and they were fine then went on a four mile walk and I had to take them off and walk with only socks because it was so painful. It is very frustrating to have lost so much money on a brand and size that normally works for me.
