New Balance MC996v2 Tennis Shoe Review

Finally,a benefit-packed, good looking tennis shoe that offers a wide shoe option! One of the biggest struggles for tennis players who need a wider-fitting shoe is simply finding one that either doesn’t resemble a geriatric shoe or that isn’t too bulky for quicker playing styles. The New Balance MC996v2 tennis shoes join a sleek black with a pop of neon-green. In addition to style, the aesthetics of these tennis shoes help it not look too bulky.

New Balance’s new MC996v2 tennis shoes are an improved version of the original MC996. The updated model showcases a better fit, as well as a TPU cage that covers the whole foot. This full-foot TPU cage makes the shoes lighter-weight and give added flexibility. Under the TPU cage is a layer of mesh that provides ventilation to keep your feet from getting warm.

The midsole of the shoes have ProBank technology. This helps guide your feet into the position most suitable for lateral movements. The REVlite midsole uses a light-weight foam compound without minimizing construction or sacrificing underfoot cushioning or stability. These shoes will make you feel both fast and secure at the same time because they are slightly lower to the ground yet still offer that light-weight support.

The New Balance MC996v2 tennis shoes’ outsole has an improved tread pattern from the previous model, giving both better traction and durability. One new benefit that is different from most tennis shoes is they have a one-year durability guarantee because of the NDurance technology used in high-wear areas.  Typically most tennis shoes just have a six-month outsole durability guarantee.

Now, even in wide tennis shoes, you can move fast and nimble on the court, just like Milos Raonic himself. Enjoy a cool-looking design without compromising comfort! Remember, if your feet need wider shoes, you can enjoy all these benefits without causing unwanted (and preventable) injuries as a result of using shoes too narrow.

Don’t just take our word for it, try them on yourself! Remember, we have a 30-day money back guarantee, and as with most our products, these shoes have no restocking fee. If you’re a proud owner of these tennis shoes, we’d love to hear what you think. Feel free to write to us on Facebook or Twitter, or even write a comment below right here on the blog.
