      Comments about New Balance 656 WS Lady:

      Product is good and the pricing was also good, but your service element is terrible! You don't seem to have coverage and the feeling I honestly get is your a company on the way out of business. I have done business with you over the years, but there seems to be little or no enthusiasm from your phone people and your online presence needs help. I truly hope your company makes it, but I will be hesitant to buy anything from you again. I do not say any of this with malice, but real sorrow in the apparent lack of management.

      Service delivery was timely and it arrived on schedule.

        Comments about New Balance 656 WS Lady:

        I wear these shoes to play tennis indoors or outdoors a couple of times a week. The last pair I had of this same shoe lasted about a year before the soles started wearing out and getting slippery. I don't notice them when I am wearing them, which I think is a good thing.

          The shoes are comfortable, they just look cheap. I haven't had them long enough to know if they will hold up.

            Every time I find a tennis shoe that fits, it's discontinued, so I bought 4 pairs. New Balance is a good sturdy shoe, the uppers never wear out, just the treads, but these should last me 6 months, playing about 3 times a week.

                WS is New Balance's color code. In this case it stands for White/Silver.

            • 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.
