Love these shoes. After three ankle surgeries and a recently broken leg, I was looking for a comfortable shoe with great stability. This is it! Couldn't ask for more. After wearing them all day I have ordered a second pair. Highly recommend these shoes.

Could not make this shoe fit. If you have a narrow width - 2A - don't get this shoe. Tried to add innersoles - nothing worked.

I have wide feet, and these shoes fit great! The inside cushion is good for for your feet when playing on hard courts, too.

More often than not, supposedly "wide" shoes don't begin to fit me. This extra wide size really does.

These fit perfectly! The provide good support, but are flexible where needed. These are great shoes at a good price for heavy duty tennis matches. They were delivered in one day. You cannot beat Zapppos for selection, price and service.

These are great shoes. They are comfortable, the width is awesome for my size 5WW foot! I have a hard foot to find shoes for and Zappos rocks at getting my size!

Definitely order a half-size up. This wasn't necessary with earlier 800-series shoes, but it now. Also, the toe box on this model is slightly tapered and not a problem for me, but just thought I'd mention it here. Otherwise, it's a great tennis shoe with good stability support for my flat feet.

I play tennis in these shoes. I always buy them a half size larger for toe room. They are the best tennis shoe I have found. I keep buying the updated version.

Usually I take a size 10 but needed an 11 here. That fits well on my narrow foot. Very stable and firm as a tennis shoe should be.

I've got a very narrow foot and it's hard to find a narrow tennis shoe. This shoe is very comfortable and allows me to move and shift quickly without my feet feeling too much friction. This is my 3rd pair of this style.

I have numerous arthritic problems with my feet and these shoes are a pleasure to wear. I am a nurse and have received compliments from my coworkers . Love the comfort. I did add an orthotic made by NB that adds more arch support and cushion, so I am really walking on clouds. The toe box is roomy.

A little stiff at first but once they are broken in they felt great on the tennis court. Rollbar keeps my feet stabilized. Definitely would recommend them.

These are good quality tennis shoes. They run slightly small, so size up if you are in between sizes. I've only worn them twice, but they were comfortable the first time playing tennis with them. I wish New Balance jazzed up the look a bit, but these look nice in a classic way.

I use these shoes only to play tennis. They aren't my favorite pair; however, they are comfortable. I use them primarily for social or clinic tennis playing. After about 2-3 weeks of use, they have started to feel a bit wider in the front of the shoe. However the cushion inside is great. I haven't encountered any discomfort in my feet while wearing them, or after I take them off. I find myself tightening the shoelaces in between matches. Also, they don't squeak as much on the court as other tennis shoes do.

I need a shoe with a wide toe box but a narrow heel. The heel was good on this shoe but the toes are too narrow. Too bad because otherwise a well made comfortable shoe.

Disappointed that these shoes were too tight in the toe box area. I loved the fact that they are all leather as I have been getting holes in the toe area of my running shoes. I suffer from plantar fasciitis and I will keep searching for the perfect pair of shoes, since Zappos has an amazing return policy.

I wore this shoe probably four times while playing tennis. My feet felt as though I was playing in old shoes. There was zero cushion. The shoes feel heavy. And after play, my feet were achy, tired, and sore.
