With an updated design and fun new cosmetics, New Balance has made the 996v2 a quick, stable and reliable high performing shoe. Featuring a low-to-the-ground feel, we found just the right amount of cushioning to provide a soft response without leaving us weighed down on the court. The hounds tooth patterned NDURE cage not only looks trendy and fashion forward, but adds lightweight support and breathability. With a full herringbone outsole, we were hesitant about the traction, but happily found the perfect blend of give and go on the court. Plus, because New Balance offers different width options, we were able to dial into the fit and find just the right size to fit our feet.
We were happy with the quick response this shoe offered while looking fun and bright on the court. Be sure to check out Heather Watson’s shoe of choice and our review to see what else we had to say about this new shoe from New Balance:
In March 2015, Yonex introduces the latest update to their most precise-feeling racquet line. Used by ATP and WTA pros Borna Coric and Sabine Lisicki, the VCORE Tour F series features Yonex’s new Aero Fin technology – a unique frame construction that places little “fins” at the top of the frame that decrease air resistance and increase swing speed. The racquets fly through the air as easily as a shark cuts through water! In addition, a 16×21 string pattern is used to improve control while preserving power and dwell time.
Three new models being introduced will be available for pre-sale at Tennis Warehouse on Monday, March 16.

Yonex VCORE Tour F 97 (290g unstrung)
