Your favourite tennis shoes?

What tennis shoes do you wear? Or if you have lots of them what are your favourites?

It's particularly interesting whether you find the new Nike Vapor Speed, Adidas Barricade 3 or Reebok MD Pump shoes better?

I have Nike shoes, model from a few years ago.

Re: Your favourite tennis shoes?

The Adidas Barricade 3 (or 2 really) are my favorite tennis shoes. I also liked the Nike Max Breathe Free II for comfort, but I think the Adidas are better all around. Both look fine as well.

New Balance make fine shoes, and you don't have to subsidize and overpaid athlete when you buy them.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Your favourite tennis shoes?

I have a pair of Wilsons....dont know the particulars...theyre the first pair of tennis shoe's I've gotten so cant really compare them to any others. I'm sure theres many better though, theyre not the lightest of shoes.

Only got them after I discovered my new pair of Nike runners were getting shredded to bits with my sliding around the court

Re: Your favourite tennis shoes?

I bought some random Nike tennis shoes because they were the only ones I could find.

I'm glad I was able to contribute

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Your favourite tennis shoes?

I can't find shoes that fit right, 10 1/2 is too small and 11 is too big.

Don't forget wide width is always recommended for the duck fan in your family.

yeah, I can never find the perfect size...one of my feet is half a size longer than the other, and my feet are pretty wide, so while a 12 would normally fit, theyre somtimes too tight in the sides so I have to go to 13's

anyone seen this style of nike tennis shoe before?

my feet don't like Wilson's -- they're too hard. i like Nike shoes. perfect fit, awesome feel.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

I think the same way. Adidas, Wilson, and New Balance are very ahrd for me... There used to be a model from Reebok which I liked, but the new ones (the ones with the so-called DMX technology)..... GOD!! They look like Robocop's shoes!
