Product Description

New Balance, is dedicated to helping athletes achieve their goals. It's been their mission for more than a century. It's why they don't spend money on celebrity endorsements. They spend it on research and development. It's why they don't design products to fit an image. They design them to fit. New Balance is driven to make the finest shoes for the same reason athletes lace them up: to achieve the very best.

The New Balance MC696 was designed for the player who loves long days at the tennis club. This men's tennis shoe features a leather upper for natural comfort, durability, and breathability. The IMEVA midsole is for firm yet flexible cushioning. ABZORB cushioning in the midfoot provides exceptional shock absorption. This New Balance sneaker also has a herringbone rubber compound outsole which allows increased traction for lateral motion and quick pivoting. Be on top of your game with the New Balance MC696.

    I had been looking for an activity and sport shoe, and welcomed New Balance's wider fit. I felt my feet were supported and protected, and these pliable shoes breathed enough to keep me cool.

    I bought these shoes on 3 September this year. I'm an active person, but I don't punish my shoes. About the second week of November, I noticed that, on my right shoe, the shoe was cracking apart from the sole. Then the problem appeared two weeks later on the left shoe! It was just glued together!?

    I liked the fit while using the shoe, and the materials (apart from the glue) are in good condition, but their durability was negatively affected by the glue. Could they be stitched together or otherwise bonded? I doubt that I will buy from New Balance next, but I will be shopping for shoes again soon!

    I have bought a variety of New balance shoes over the years and have always had a good experience, until these. although they felt pretty comfortable....they started to break down very quickly...with in 3 weeks of normal wear the heal started breaking down to the point where my foot would slide off to the side pushing out over the heal support. just a really poorly made shoe. :-( very disappointed

    This lightweight as advertise.
    Floppy and weak.
    Like a pair of house slippers
    No good for tennis or anything like that

    Note: In the past NB has produced some of the very best tennis shoes.
    Models 651,653, model 656, probably others.
    What ever happened...........did they lose the Last .........or did they lose their minds.

    I bought this as a gift for a friend who is a tennis instructer in a tropical country. He spends long hours on the courts under very hot, humid conditions. He was floored by how comfortable and light these shoes were and loved that they did not cause his feet to overheat.

    I have been a New Balance wearer for over 25 years. Wide feet. I appreciate New Balance for their mission and quality shoes. I have running shoes, gym shoes, tennis shoes, walking shoes, and trail shoes--all from New Balance. I ordered 3 pairs of these tennis shoes. Bad move. All three pairs had sole glue problem. Within 2 months of moderate use, the soles became unglued. Terrible, terrible quality. New Balance, please pay attention to quality. Your shoes have always had glue problems, but these are the worse. Good grief.

    This is my second pair of 696's. I play tennis 3 times per week. I found these shoes had excellent support, especially laterally enabling me to cut and turn quickly. My first pair lasted about 9 months. I really like that the 696's come in the wider widths. The only negative was the label on the top of the tongue came unstitched, of all things! I would recommend this shoe to any serious tennis player.

    These shoes run true to size with a roomy toe-box. The sole is well-made and is made of a material which should do well on a hard-court surface. New Balance also provides an excellent durability warranty on their out-sole. There is good support in the shoe (I do use inserts from my podiatrist)--especially under the ball of the foot. I'm very pleased with this shoe.
