      Shoes are a great value and overall good performance. Very stylish. They could improve with a bit more arch and ankle support. The soles wear nicely. I play doubles at least twice per week and I have gone 6 months and just now showing some wear.

      Comments about New Balance 656 Men's Blue/Yellow:

      I love the color. I use this pair mainly for walking. They are a little stiff around the ankle.
      Not crazy about the extra width of sole on the outer part of the shoe at the ball of the foot, but it was the closest I could come for the current online selections.

          Comments about New Balance 656 Men's Blue/Yellow:

          I had the previous model 655 in all leather, it lasted me a year and a half. I played twice a week for about 6 hours. The 656 feel similar to the 655 but the wideth seems to be a little bit tighter. The shoes are comfortable and light weight. The arch support is low, and I use my own green Super Feet insoles anyway, so not a big deal for me. Consider the price, it is a good deal.

            This is the only colorful shoe that comes in an extra wide width. New Balance is the only tennis shoe vendor with extra wide widths. I just wish they had additional COLORFUL models.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Prompt delivery in good condition. Had to buy 2 pair to get free shipping.

            • 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.
