      A shoe for Pickleball

      Pros

      • Absorbs Shock
      • Comfortable

        Best Uses

        • With Orthotics/Inserts

        Comments about New Balance 806 Women's:

        I purchased this shoe for Pickleball use. The shoe is deep enough so that I can use my orthotics. The shoe was a little stiff at first, but after a few weeks, it softened up. Also, this model offers great ankle support. I play Pickleball on an average of 8 hours a week, so I am curious see how long the sole will hold out.

                  A:

                  The exact difference between widths varies from brand to brand and even shoe to shoe. In general, the width difference is usually somewhere between 2 millimeters and 3/16 of an inch.

              • 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.
