New Balance Men`s 896v2 2E Width Tennis Shoes are engineered to be fast. This is achieved through a lightweight, minimalist approach. The synthetic and mesh upper is breathable, and utilizes NB Ice for enhanced ventilation. It is also fortified with NDURE for protection against toe-dragging. The 896v2 sits lower to the ground than other New Balance models in order to encourage a more responsive feel at push off. REVlite provides lightweight cushioning, while Fantom Fit increases support. On the bottom, NDurance is utilized for a durable outsole.
