I absolutely hate this shoe. I needed a court shoe for indoors and outside; and I needed it fast. The rubber overlays rub my hard-to-fit right foot in exactly the wrong places. The shoe is too narrow for a wide foot and the heel is to wide. I ordered the color shown for silver/white but the shoe I received was not what was pictured. Because the shoe doesn't fit the arch support is either non-existent or in the wrong place on my foot. If I hadn't had to wear them, I would have returned for refund. If I could have, I would have given it "zero stars."

These shoes are beautiful! I got the blue and white ones. They are well cushioned, and fit very well. I love them! If there is any drawback, it is that the tongue on the right shoes curls under a bit. I have to pull it back in place with my finger.

This is my third pair of this NB 996, and size runs consistent - my 9.5D works every time for this shoe. This is a low riding, relatively light weight, no-break-in time required tennis shoe. Compared to 996 V2 and 601V, which both run small, this shoe is true to size. I don't think there is much arch support, but I wear orthopedics so I don't usually notice this about a shoe. It has served me well on the hard and hard-thru court surfaces.

I'd also recommend: Merrell, Saucony, Birkenstock

I love these shoes! They are very comfortable and cute (for tennis shoes). I am an intermediate player and they have been great for me. Highly recommend.
