          Great shoe for tennis, but a little narrow. I ordered a D width, and it felt more like a C width.

            Comments about New Balance 1187 WB Men:

            I have never had lessons and just play for fun with friends once or twice a week on hard courts for a couple of hours at a time. I've had these for a couple of weeks now. Felt weird at first, but broke in on the first day of use. Other than that hiccup, they've been great. I had a different pair of New Balance tennis shoes before these (NB 851). They were great except I wore a hole through the left toe area in about 8 or 9 months (seems premature for the amount I play, but I run and cut hard and my swing mechanics are probably wrong... haha). These are nicer and hopefully will last a little longer.

            Great value

            • Good Shock Absorption

            Cons

            • Doesn't Breath
            • Stiff Sole Initially

            Best Uses

            • Hardcourt
            • Platform Tennis--paddle

            Comments about New Balance 1187 WB Men:

            Platform tennis and tennis hardcourt.
            Out of box felt very narrow[medium width]Also bought a pair of 996 at around same time].
            Ordered another 1187 1/2 size larger per several reviews.While waiting used shoe tree on original to stretch a little resulting in a snug but good fit--so they stretched a little.The 1/2 size larger is fine on width but a tad long.Will use latter in summer with 2 pair of socks.
            Initially the sole was very stiff and barely flexed thus pulling shoe down/away on heel but after a few hours on court they are fine.The sole is extremely durable which is a major plus on a platform court which is very abrasive---they are perfect for that use. I would believe their 1 year sole warranty based on use to date. Now comfortable[after 4-6 hours of use, flexible and no sign of wear from padddle court[unbelievable] or hard court.Excellent lateral support---funky laces that stays tied without double knots[great!].
            They are mostly synthetic uppers so doubt they breath well but great in paddle [outside winter] and indoor tennis in winter. Summer???
            For the price you get a hi end,vg product....buy a couple especially if paddle player.

            • 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.
