With this update to the 696, New Balance has kept the lightweight comfort this line of shoes is known for, but with increased ventilation, and a new tread pattern which will perform well on all court surfaces. The synthetic upper has more perforations than before to offer superb ventilation, while providing enough support for aggressive movers. The EVA midsole gives a comfortable, and plush feel underfoot, while the outsole has been updated with a multi-directional pattern which will offer plenty of traction on all court surfaces. The 696V4 continues to be a nice choice for the junior player looking for comfort, ventilation, and a speedy-feel, all at a great value.
