Shoes run narrow, some stores are showing that the EE are actually M, the length is correct. I wear a 14EE in the Brooks brand. I use these shoes for Pickleball 4 days a week both indoors on a gym floor and outdoors on tennis court surface. It's a relief to take them off after several hours of playing.
The shoe lining at the heel on both shoes wore through and shredded after a few weeks but was not a show stopper from wearing them. I replaced the factory inserts with Superfeet for added arch support right out of the box. The new inserts did not change the narrow fit.
Stability and traction are very good but the shoe has a very tight toebox which can add to a false stability feel. The shoes breath well and never feel hot.
After 9 months of active use and a replacement pair of laces; the soles around the outer edge are showing some wear (typical of court play) and the outer shell shows no signs of cracking or stretching.
I am a tennis pro and a great fan of New Balance so I was extremely disappointed in this shoe. It was immediately uncomfortable to wear; very stiff and plastic feeling. I could not imagine wearing this shoe for the entirety of a set much less a match. I would not recommend this shoe
Just received my new shoes and find them somewhat small and tighter than my previous MC 1005 tennis shoes. I can no longer wear my Therlo socks with my new shoes. The fit is snug with normal socks and will probably stretch a little once they are broken in. Overall I like the feel of the shoes.
