Comments: Worst shoes ever made, as they hurt my heels after two weeks playing with it. Now I can
barely walk because of it. I will never buy NB again.....
Comments: The key to knowing the width on New Balance shoes is going to their website and looking at the "Last."
PL-1 lasts are narrower than the MX-001 lasts. That's not to say all PL-1 will be too narrow, only that you may run into that issue,
where you definitely will not have that issue with an MX-001 last. The new 851 model also has the PL-1 last, so it will be narrower
than an 1187 but not necessarily as narrow as the 900 due to different shoe construction. (The above came from a phone call I
just had with New Balance customer support, which is the best in the industry in my limited experience.) Hope this helps
Comments: These shoes have a good fit. They are comfortable and soft with decent support. The laces aren't great
as mentioned by other New Balance reviewers. Also, I haven't been thrilled with the traction on hard or clay. It's not terrible, but
could be improved.
Comments: Just got my 900 Ds and like them very much! I do have medium wide feet,
and the shoes were a bit snug for the first 15 minutes walking around the living room, but after that they are very comfortable
and quick on court. The heels are a little squishier than I am used to (I usually play in Babolat Propulses, Roddick shoes, for
singles or Nike player's shoes). I've only played in them a couple times, and my only concern is that they may be too soft, i.e., not
being as precise as some of the more demanding shoes.
Comments: I just played my second 2hr match in these shoes. My whole lower body is in pain. I feel it mostly in the
heel, which I presume is because of bad cushioning. I have never felt this much pain in a new pair of shoes before. Regret.
Comments: I have worn NB shoes like the 600 series for years in 9B size. NB has decided to discontinue the B width
in these shoes. I have tried the 803 in 9B and it is OK but feels a little like ski boots. I just ordered the 900 and the TW comment
"fits true to size" is not correct. Since I have narrow feet it is a good shoe for me, but I had to go up a full size (I had to return the
first pair because they were way too small). If you normally wear D width, I do not think this shoe will work, even if you go up a
size. It is light and comfortable as they say.
Comments: New Balance introduced a new style of shoe strings with a fabric texture grip to provide a tighter fit on
the shoe however the new shoe strings very rapidly deteriorated and after one month of playing, the strings were completely
destroyed... I have used New Balance Tennis Shoes for the past 5 years, and I couldn't believe these shoes came with such a junk
strings material. Very disappointed.
Comments: Great shoe. I have narrow feet and this shoe is the first one in a long time to fit me really well with no
added padding. Very comfortable to play in and is easy on my knees. Only owned them a couple months so cannot comment on
durability yet. It did feel a little like I would walk out of them initially but I laced them up firmly and that feeling went away. And
after I played in them the first time I didn't worry about that issue at all.
Comments: I like this shoe. I have a standard 11D foot and have not had any problems with the overall fit or toe
box after a brief break in period. I like the heel and arch support, which are very good. These shoes are unique in that they have a
running shoe feel but they still provide adequate lateral support. If you like good cushioning, an on toe feel, and a shoe that feels
like you could comfortably run a few miles in them these are for you.
Comments: Great shoe. Not sure about the "long break-in" comments, as these were ready to go right from the
box! Most Adidas, Nike, and other NB shoes I've used required a few weeks to break in, but the NB 900s were great from the get
go. Only issue is the toe-drag material seems weak, but this shoe comes with a 12 month guarantee, how can you go wrong?
Lightest shoe I've ever used on court, with amazing comfort and grip.
Comments: This shoe has great cushioning, especially in the heel. They are supportive
but are tricky to get tied tight and snug to your feet. That's why I presume others have posted about lace holders breaking
because you really have to pull on them to get the shoe tight. I am going to order them again when these wear out -- if they prove
to be durable -- but if you are new to ordering them, I would recommend ordering at least 1/2 (.5) bigger than normal and maybe
even a full size bigger. I have been buying the 1004's in size 10.5 4E and ordered these in 11 2E because they didn't have 4E. The
toe box is still too tight and
actually almost too short. I think if I get them in an 11.5 2E that they will fit my 10.5 4E foot perfectly, both width and length wise.
It is a good show, just go up in size. The extra cushioning helps us tennis players with Achille's or PF issues.
Comments: Have played in the shoe for a little over a month and a lace holder has broken
loose. I enjoy the grip and comfort but do not like that the shoe is coming apart.
Comments: Don't be fooled by the initial comfort level of this shoe! They felt great in the store so I changed up
from my regular Head shoe. Five weeks in and I am through the outsole at the toes and my arches, knees and back are hurting.
Also I have had more hot spots, calluses and blisters than any other shoe I have owned, including the 750 series of New Balance
(750, 751 and 755s?) . I think the uppers, being mesh are just too soft to keep my foot from moving and sliding on the insole.
Comments: I agree with the narrow toe box. 11.5 D in a New Balance has always worked for me. Glad I didn't wear
them onto the court and can return them. So still looking for a more reasonable alternative to the adidas Barricade, which is just a
little wider. Should have purchased 6 more pairs of the NB 822's when I had the chance.
Comments: This is a very good shoe if you have narrow feet and are not overweight. Shoe is very light, comfortable,
no break-in needed and fits narrow feet snugly and has great support. Has a very narrow toe and had to go up a half size. My
previous favorite shoe was Prince MV4, MS4, MC4 series and used more than 10 of those. Before that I loved Nike Oscillates
(bought more than 10). If you liked those shoes then you may like this NB. If you have wide feet, over pronate or are overweight
Comments: These shoes were a bad fit for me. They really lack upper foot support and have a very, very soft
cushioning. Maybe if you are a 3.0 doubles players, they will be super comfortable and light weight, but for serious tennis
playing, they are unusable. I can't wear mine, too much pain in the foot and knee from them.
Comments: I like them and haven't encountered the same issues as some other guys. Maybe they work for Nike.
Just kidding. They are not like other tennis shoes I have had but I have been playing them for a while and am enjoying them. If you
find them narrow, get a half size larger. Length stays the same but more width. Light and breathe well with excellent grip. There
definitely is some running shoe technology in them which might not be for everyone. The heel is quite raised but I like it because
it keeps you on your toes. I would buy them again.
Comments: Initially I liked the narrow fit and the cushioning. They are like a big fluffy couch and just too soft. My
back started to hurt from the lack of support. I much prefer the other New Balance shoes to this one.
Comments: Been playing this shoe for two weeks now; definitely more narrow than what you would normally expect
from New Balance. Shoe feels light though, and provides good grip on the court. Disappointed though in the durability,
especially in the toe, as the toe-drag protection material is terrible. Positives: Lightweight, more interesting aesthetic, feels fast;
Negatives: narrow, toe durability, longer break-in.
