    Comments about New Balance 656 Men's White/Navy:

    I've been buying the New Balance 650 series for many years. It is an excellent value for the money. I am 65 years old and still playing competitive singles tennis and have no foot, leg or hip problems. Holabird has the best value and service...and I do most of my shopping on the Internet so I do compare.

          Most of the time, I can only get NB tennis shoes in my size and width online. I know that they will be true to size and have never had a problem. And I would not order any other shoe online. I've made that MISTAKE before.

              I've worn 650, 651, 654 for years with perfect fit (size 8D). 656 deviates with seemingly different last. Switched to 696 which is closer to the previous 650 series.

                  • 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.
