Ventilated and versatile, the 656 from New Balance offers an excellent combination of comfort and stability with a mesh and leather upper.

Upper: High abrasion long wear drag tip provides outstanding durability. Mesh across the toe box combined with a leather upper provides durability and support with enhanced breathability. Padded air mesh tongue and heel collar provide increased cushioning, breathability and comfort.

Midsole: Lightweight C-Cap compression molded EVA midsole provides cushioning and flexibility. ABZORB in the heel and forefoot provides exceptional shock absorption. Stability Web provides optimal arch support that is both rigid and lightweight while preventing midfoot flex. Built on New Balance's standard MX-001 tennis/training last. Removable EVA insole for increased cushioning.

Outsole: Non-marking Ndurance® rubber outsole compound provides maximum durability in high-wear areas with a herringbone traction pattern for optimal traction on a variety of surfaces. Forefoot pivot point for increased mobility.

1-Year Outsole Guarantee

    Inferior to the 806

    Comments about New Balance 656 WR Men:

    This is not near as comfortable as the NB 806. It has less inside cushion padding and irritated the top of my foot, unless I laced it up not as high. A very Spartan shoe, compared to the 806. Buy the 806.

      Comments about New Balance 656 WR Men:

      I was looking for a lighter weight, more breathable shoe that would last as long as my previous heavier model. This did the job. Slightly less support than a heavier shoe but still enough.

        I used to buy the 650's , then they stopped producing this model. I go though a pair in about 4 months. I play Pickleball ( not sure how many are aware of this game). It's on a tennis court; fast game, lots of starts and stops. The shoes perform well.

        How not to order a tennis shoe.

          Comments about New Balance 656 WR Men:

          Perhaps it's my mistake. I THOUGHT I was ordering a tennis shoe given that this shoe was listed under a grouping of tennis shoes. The fact is, it's a cross-training shoe of which I have little interest. From now on I will shop for a shoe that I can see and try on. No more guess work for me!

          • About New Balance
          New Balance has grown to be one of the largest manufacturers of running shoes and they've done this without expensive advertising campaigns. New Balance knows that there is no better press than positive word-of-mouth. New Balance began as an arch support company, but in 1960, they designed the first running shoe with a ripple sole and the first running shoe that came in varying widths. It didn't take long before New Balance running shoes were used by college track teams all over the country. Today, New Balance makes their shoes available in more widths than almost any other company and that means that there's a New Balance that can fit nearly any foot. Although they started by making running shoes, New Balance tennis shoes are an industry staple and are loved by recreational and serious players. New Balance also makes fine running and tennis apparel, as well as a variety of socks and other sporting accessories.
