Comments: I love the 1004, as it lasted inside and out. The MC 1005, after 3 months of wear, had a hole worn out in
the cushioning on the inside above the heel on both shoes. I have rechecked all my 1004 (about 8 Pairs) and there are no holes.
Comments: This is my second pair of MC 1005 2E, and I play on hard court in hot weather in Texas. It's light and soft.
I like the 1005-2E more than 1004-2E (which are heavier/harder and I used 5 pairs in 3 years). I have wide feet and the 2E model fits
perfectly to my feet.
Comments: I have worn the New Balance for many years and have enjoyed the fit and stablity of the older models until
the 1005. They did away with the inner shoe lining, and the insole does not have as much support (I got shin splints the first week
that I wore them). Even the laces seem cheap. They will work fine for mowing the grass but I will not use them for tennis. This will be
the last pair of New Balance that I will buy.
