Tennis shoes must fulfill four basic qualifications. First is fit. I have several orthopedic issues, and well-fitting shoes is not just desirable, but required. Without a proper fit, mobility is effected and limited. As daily walking is a necessity, properly fitting shoes is not a luxury. Second is wear and durability. While I am realistic and realize tennis shoes will not outlast hard-soled leather shoes, I do expect a reasonable tread time the fashion statements just do not provide. Third is an unusual factor, but ease of use is necessary. If a wearer has not fought with the round laces that constantly become untied, or a shoe tongue that snakes its way to the toe, then usability will not be a factor, The last on the list is price. There is a huge discrepancy in shoe costs.. but if the three previous qualifications are satisfied, price should be last on the list.
The New Balance WX608V3 not just satisfies the qualifications, but exceeds the last. The fit is true to the size chart and comfortable enough to avoid the "break-in" discomfort and heat. Even after morning walks, hours of errands and chores, and a stint on the playground with the grandkids, foot and back pain are not caused by the shoes but age and exertion. There are not enough miles on them to judge wear and durability, so time will tell. Usability is high as the laces and tongue stay put even after a long day, and they performed well after a trip through the washing machine after an unfortunate run-in with dog droppings. For the price, these shoes are hard to beat. I have already decided to order an additional pair to insure against the style being discontinued or unavailable in the future.
I would, and will, recommend these shoes to anyone who asks.
