Like them - don't love them - love the Asics
This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I purchased these because the Asics I ordered are back-ordered (just got an update the Asics are pushed out another month - thank you Pandemic Supply Chain!) and I needed a new set of sneakers. Got them, wore them around the house and found them comfortable and supportive. I like New Balance because I have a little wider foot and their regular size fits well - been wearing their sneakers since my high school days and have always loved them. My first day out on the courts these sneakers are firm and supportive and slide well, providing just the right grip. There was a little rub in the toe box that I forgave as they are new and need to work in. A week or two later they worked in and are comfortable. Still, the Asics were better in terms of playability. Also, I have to admit that I am not a fan of the design and color scheme - for some reason they remind me "old man" shoes - the classic white New Balance sneaker that old men wear - no disrespect, I get it, comfortable and wear well. I do like the sole wear warranty as I wear shoes hard and I am hoping they hold up well.
