Comments: I have worn NB wide fit for many years. I tried this new style
only to find that the toe box was just not generous enough. The fit is
poor. I will go back to wearing the 1004 pair that I already have and
will try the new 1005 Wide when I need a new pair.

Comments: An extremely lightweight shoe that works well for my very narrow flat feet. No break-in required. The
only downside is that it is not very durable, and thus will not hold up long if you play tennis a lot. I play about 12 hours a week. I
sent in my shoe for the NDurance guarantee within 2 months of purchase.

Comments: This shoe was fine when I first tried it on, then, about three days later, it started
to make this squeaky sound every time I walked. The noise came from the back sole of the
shoe and it is extremely distracting when I am playing tennis. I wish I could return the shoe
because it is defective but since I wore it about three times before the defect started, I can't

Comments: A great shoe for an intermediate player like me who plays a couple of times a week on both clay and
hard courts. Comfortable right out of the box and a real step up from my old clunky shoes.

Comments: I love this shoe. Being used to training in NB's Minimus shoe line and
wearing Nike Free Shoes for walking around in, this shoe gives your feet the freedom of
feeling the court and being able to move freely around the court without a clunky shoe
weighing you down. Good lateral support as well for change of direction. I currently
average 3-4 times a week on hard courts and the shoes have held up well. I'm glad they
are starting to make shoes lighter again!

Comments: I am a runner, and I love this shoe. It is for people who are very light on their
feet, do not pronate or supinate (i.e., don't need a "control" shoe).

Comments: Did not like the way this fit at all. I am a New Balance fan and will have to order the good ol' white
leather, tried and true.
From: Judy, 2/12
Comments: I tried this shoe because I had worn the New Balance 1004; I love them and they work great, but I'm
tired of how fast they wore out for me because I'm out on the court a lot. I'm flat-footed and overpronate which gives me knee
problems and I'm pretty picky about shoes. The arch support was off and my feet felt awkward and clunky and heavy in these
shoes. They sure look good and they've got good cushions, but they need to be broken in. My feet hurt just walking around in the
grocery store in these so I could break them in before I got on court.

Comments: Nothing wrong with this shoes except it is not for an aggressive player.
The pros for this shoe is that it is super light, very comfortable, very attractive shoe, true to size, and medium width in toebox and
heel. The cons are the cushion around ankle is minimal, and the rubber bottom of shoe is not wide enough to support rugged
