This shoe fits true to size. I got my regular size, 8, and a half size smaller to compare, since some of the reviews said the sneaker runs large. Tennis shoes fit very snug on the sides for support, so without any room in the toe, your foot has no room for movement. Overall, an attractive, well made shoe that does the job on the court.

Anyone who takes playing seriously knows how integral the right sneaker is. I struggle to find one that provides substantial stability, is lightweight, has solid arch support and - also - looks good. This is a wonderful sneaker on all counts. Why I did not give it 5 stars is because as I am breaking it in - which seems to be true every time I purchase New Balance for tennis - my toes on my left foot cramp a bit off and on during the 2-3 hours I spend on the court. That aside - as I know it will pass - I am very happy with these. I am not thinking about my footing at all as I run for shots and they deliver.

I'd also recommend: mizuno fro running

New Balance has finally stepped it up again and started creating a great tennis shoe. I stopped wearing NB after they came out with 1000. This shoe is light and secure fitting. I like a shoe that is form fitting to my foot and that is what the WC1296 does. One shoe does feel a bit stiff on the inside stitching but otherwise very comfortable. I highly recommend!

I'm very tough on my tennis shoes. I recently started to develop some painful blisters on the balls of my feet from my Prince shoes. I was skeptical of these shoes at first because I drag my toe and tend to wear shoes hard in general. Overall I've been very happy with these shoes. They are relatively light for a tennis shoe and have alleviated the problem I've had with the balls of my feet. The toe guard seems sufficient to prevent wear.

I ordered the "wide" version of this shoe but it is so narrow that I could hardly get my foot in it. Gotta send it back. I am so disappointed!
