Stability is what New Balance's premier tennis shoe, the 1296 is all about! The first thing you'll notice when you slip these on is the S-Curve support system on the lateral side that locks you in. Combined with a low-to-the-ground ride and a snug fit, this shoe provides the utmost stability in all directions on court. Lots of mesh on the upper will give you the breathability you need for long hours on court, and the NDurance rubber outsole will allow you to wear down your opponent faster than your shoes. It's also backed by New Balance's One Year NDurance durability guarantee. This supportive and stable shoe is built with the aggressive competitor in mind.
