Players looking for a lightweight performance shoe now have a new option, the New Balance 900. Built on a running last instead of the standard New Balance court shoe, the 900 offers a sleek, speed feel. That speed feel is enhanced with the light feeling of the shoe. The 900 features the Acteva midsole, which is 12% lighter than the standard midsole foam, New Balance says. We also found the shoe to offer plenty of cushioning from the N-ergy system, which is designed not only to absorb shock, but also provide a responsive feel. Overall, this is a good fit for competitive players looking for a blend of durability and speed.
