New Balance TWO WXY Review

Pros:
Great traction
Very responsive cushion
Cons:
Impact protection could be better
Weird fit

Performance of the New Balance TWO WXY:

The traction on the New Balance TWO WXY is one of the best aspects of the shoe and has an awesome bite. The durability is okay for outdoor use. The cushion setup features Fuel Cell foam and is very low to the ground here. You get good court feel and responsiveness with okay impact protection. The materials are mostly thin knits and textiles that are comfortable and perform well. These fit a little long and pretty narrow, so it is recommended to try them on before buying. They do come in wide sizes. The support and lockdown are great and have you covered on explosive moves and crossovers. Overall the New Balance TWO WXY is a great performer in pretty much every area and comes in at a fair $140 price tag.

Overall the New Balance TWO WXY is very minimal and lightweight on foot and performs very well. Most types of players and play styles should be able to play in these. I'd 100% recommend getting them.

The traction performed phenomenally well. I didn't have to wipe at all and the bite was super strong.

This traction pattern has the ultimate grip! Traction is really really good and very consistent. I had no problems with these slipping out or anything.

The cushion is sensational! This setup is very low to the ground with amazing court feel, comfort, and a little bounce.

The Fuel Cell cushion is caged pretty heavily and provides a very low-to-the-ground ride with a little bit of bounce. The court feel is nice and the impact protection is decent but my feet hurt on heavier impacts.

The upper is mostly knit and gets the job done. The quality of the materials is average, but I had no complaints when it comes to performance.

The mesh and textile materials in the upper are really thin and feel great on foot. They aren't the most premium, but they get the job done and are comfortable.

The support was nice - I had no issues. The laces provide a lot of lockdown and the upper hugs your feet nicely.

Support and lockdown are very, very nice. My foot wasn't going anywhere and lateral containment and stability were excellent. Ankle support was also good.

I have narrow feet and these fit me pretty snug, but it was a good snug! Wide footers should avoid this shoe altogether.

True to size worked for me, but these fit a little weird for me since they were long and narrow. They were pretty easy to put on as well.
