Exactly what I needed

Pros

    Best Uses

    • Racquetball

    Comments about New Balance 656 WN Men:

    The New Balance 656WN is exactly what I have been needing for racquetball play. The prior shoes I used are NOT court shoes and led to tripping. And, the prior shoes were cross trainers -- not intended for a court shoe -- whenever I tried to stop suddenly I often had foot movement insdie the shoe ramming my toes into the front of the show. I haven't tripped a single time with the 656WN. Light shoe -- great traction -- great stability with a wide sole base. I prefer the leather upper as opposed to the version with the mesh upper. I will only wear these shoes on the racquetball court so I expect them to last a long time. Also, the ordering and shipping process with Holabirds was perfect. Order was delivered very timely -- entire process went very smoothly -- thank you!!

          Comments about New Balance 656 WN Men:

          I play on har-tru courts, six times a week, at least 50 weeks per year. That's 300 matches, and these shoes generally last the full year. If they are still wearable after a year, I retire them as work shoes around the house.

                I haven't had a chance to really break in the shoes yet, but they are very comfortable and fit nicely. For a pair of tennis shoes that normally have a higher MSRP, the price is very reasonable.

                • 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.
