Good for wide feet. Not good for wide flat feet
This shopper rated the product 3 out of 5 stars

I am pickleball player and have flat feet. I have used these shoes for a little over three months. They have very little cushion and my feet hurt so bad after I play. Yes, I added better inserts, but that didn't help. This is a good court shoe; just not good for flat feet.

Great shoe with a few caveats
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I bought these primarily for pickleball and have used them 5-6 days a week for about a month. They've held up pretty well and are pretty supportive while still being light and profile. For me, you absolutely need some superfeet or another insole to go with them. Also I had to return the first pair I received as they were labeled EE but certainly didn't match NBs own sizing chart (way too narrow). Second pair was much better. Thanks tennis point for the easy return process!

so far, great
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I just starting wearing them. Performance, weight, comfort and fit are great. They could stand to have a slightly higher rise but that is personal preference. They are very comparable in the rise to most of the "speed" series shoes from other companies. I really appreciate the consistency across NB shoes on fit at least for EE width. If one works you, the others will fit the same which is very key if you need a wider shoe and you are ordering online. Time will tell on durability.
