I ordered these shoes in wide and they do not rub anywhere, I have very sensitive feet so that is good. I like the bold colors. I play tennis 3 times a week for 2 hours usually and the shoes feel good. I would recommend them.

These shoes are the best! I am a runner and tennis player with a wider foot. I had been wearing running shoes on the tennis court just because they were light and comfy. I couldn't find any tennis shoes that felt good on my feet until these. Prince does not compare. They are not stiff or cumbersome like many tennis shoes. I'm going to get another pair so I have a back up.

I wear these for tennis and pickleball and they have excellent cushioning and support. Regular width is a little snug on me so I got a wide size and wear two pairs of socks. Probably the most cushioning I've had in a tennis shoe. Did not need any inserts. I do wish New Balance would make the "N" smaller on their shoes. It's a bit much!

I love, love, love this shoe for tennis. They were very comfortable from the first time I wore them. I have a wide foot and had been experiencing corns due to court shoes that didn't fit properly. These have good support in all aspects.

I bought these shoes to wear while playing pickleball. They have great traction, on both indoor and outdoor courts, and my feet aren't fatigued at the end of play. I usually have a problem with the heel of my shoes sliding up and down, but that is not the case with these. I would recommend them.
