The 656 is New Balance's most versatile tennis shoe offering an excellent combination of comfort and stability with a rich leather upper.

Upper: High abrasion long wear drag tip provides outstanding durability. Leather upper provides durability and support and has strategic perforations for ventilation. 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.

        Comments about New Balance 656 WN Men:

        I play on har-tru courts, six times a week, at least 50 weeks per year. That's 300 matches, and these shoes generally last the full year. If they are still wearable after a year, I retire them as work shoes around the house.

              Comments about New Balance 656 WN Men:

              I haven't had a chance to really break in the shoes yet, but they are very comfortable and fit nicely. For a pair of tennis shoes that normally have a higher MSRP, the price is very reasonable.

              Use it on the tennis courts. Second pair of 656 but first time with WN model. Because the top is covered these don't breath as well.

              • 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.
