Neutral. Giving a nod to the classic style of the past, the retro original look of New Balance’s 996 has been combined with premium cushioning and upper technologies for a comfortable and durable fit with a look that will have everyone doing a double take at your new kicks.

Upper: Nubuck leather upper provides natural comfort, durability, and breathability. Mesh panels provide increased ventilation and also help keep the shoe light. Internal heel counter and external heel clip center the foot at heel strike, setting up your foot for a smooth transition through the gait cycle. Reflective logos and heel provide increased visibility in low light. Padded heel collar and tongue provide increased comfort.

Proudly made in the USA.

Midsole: Encap® is a core of soft cushioning EVA in the midsole with a tough polyurethane rim for more support and durability. PU midsole provides excellent cushioning and durability with resistance to compression set. Removable EVA insole provides increased cushioning.

Outsole: A carbon rubber heel provides increased durability in this high wear area. Blown rubber in the forefoot with flex grooves provides lightweight cushioning and traction with optimal flexibility.

Available in width D (Medium).

    Nice style, nice comfort, but too long and narrow

    By Tennis Geek

    from Winston Salem, NC

    Comments about New Balance 996 Men:

    Mostly I like these court shoes. They are fairly light for quick movement. I like the style and color options. And they are well cushioned for being as light as they are. However, the fit is just a bit odd. I normally wear a 9-1/2 3E - I can often fit in a 2E size without too much effort. But these shoes feel really narrow for a 2E shoe. And they also seem about a half to full size longer as well. So, for this shoe to fit well, I would have to order a size 9-4E shoe to get the length and width right. Unfortunately the shoe does not come in a 4 E width, so I will be sticking with the NB 1005 court shoe for now. I hope NB will ofter a 4E option in the future in the 996 style.

    great fit feel comfort

    By junbug

    from Las Vegas, NV, USA

    Comments about New Balance 996 Men:

    i bought the 996 shoes to give new balance a shot. i wanted to break away from the traditional big boys.however these shoes might not be for everyone. the reviews for these shoes. have been mixed. i personally like them because they are different. i'm a tennis instructor, so i just use them on the tennis court, but on the court, they are stable and sit very low to the ground, i'm hoping new balance will add these shoes to their custom made lineup.

    Great Shoe

    By Blake

    from Michigan, USA

    Comments about New Balance 996 Men:

    Despite less durability compared to other shoes, they really aren't meant to. These are incredibly light and low to the ground. Great comfort and traction. I will buy these again.

    Comments about New Balance 996 Men:

    I agree with everyone else - this is a great, low to the ground and light shoe that simply does not last.

    Poor tread life

    By michael

    from St. Louis, MO

    Comments about New Balance 996 Men:

    Great comfort, fit & play, but wore out after 3 mos. Hole by big toe on serving side (my right foot). Tread life has been a long time issue with New Balance for me, but I keep coming back because it's the only true wide size and so comfortable. Been a NB buyer for 20+ years, first with running shoes now with tennis.

    • 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.
