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.

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.

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

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 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?

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!

Nike DOES make them for women.... they have them in pink (my sis loved them) and light blue.

I got them a couple of months ago at $1,300 pesos (I have a discount from the Mexican Tennis Federation whenever I buy tennis stuff at a certain store) which is about $115 USD

Nike was his first choice. But after a couple of bad experience, or let's say bad choices, he turned to Addidas. He was quite satisfied for a while. Then, he tried a Wilson pair and got hooked. Yes, they are a bit heavier than other brands, but he likes the choices they offer. He is only 13, still growing up, so he changes sizes pretty quickly, and taste too. In terms of durability, the Wilson shoes last longer than other brands.
