History of the New Balance Pro Court

Keeping true to its mission of focusing on the shoe rather than the stars that endorsed them, the Boston-based athletic shoe manufacturer has reached deep down into its archives as it portrayed lifestyle kicks by releasing the New Balance Pro Court.

Originally launched as a tennis shoe and later on used popularly as a basketball shoe in the 1970s, the Pro Court was largely forgotten at the turn of the century. The newer Pro Court models from the New Balance Classic Collection were released in January 2013.
