Get this shoe for its fun citrus colour scheme and use it for its fast and light court feel. Currently used by Coco Gauff, this shoe will please a wide range of players up to an elite level.
The 996 line from New Balance is known for its comfort and lightweight performance. The 4th generation takes it a step further by reducing the overall weight even more and increasing the material performance for fast footwork and improved responsiveness.
This shoe is made with a supportive synthetic mesh and a Hypoknit upper for a balance of a comfortable stretch with needed support for lateral movement and quick changes of direction. By incorporating FuelCell foam in the midsole, the shoe provides maximum propulsion and energy return for a more responsive court feel. The NDurance outsole provides impressive traction and durability on all court surfaces.
For a shoe so light and responsive factored with its ability to stand up to an aggressive game's stability and durability requirements means it should hit the mark for a lot of players which makes this an easy to recommend shoe.
