Good fit
This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I am a 4.5 tennis player and I play doubles about 5 times a week. I had plantar fasciitis really bad several years ago so I’m very particular about my shoes. They felt stable and seemed to provide good support.

Nice shoes -- still trying to find the right fit.
This shopper rated the product 3 out of 5 stars

I ordered two different sizes of this shoe, and neither one really fit. I normally wear size 9 medium width shoe. My Prince tennis shoes are an 8 medium, and fit perfectly, but they are very heavy. I'm looking for a lighter shoe that gives good support. I have tried these, as well as styles of Fila, Head, Nike, and Asics, and could not find a good, snug-but-not-painful fit except for the Prince. The search goes on, but it just takes a long time with ordering, trying, and sending back, lather, rinse, repeat.

Fits differently
This shopper rated the product 2 out of 5 stars

I've worn the 1005 for a long time. Unfortunately the 1006 doesn't fit my foot - much tighter in the forefoot.

Long time NB tennis shoe wearer, love the 1004 and the 1005. This shoe seemed to fit smaller.
