Tennis shoes
 
I'm hoping for some feedback about shoe choices. 3.5 level player and in the past have focused more or less on least cost shoe. Haven't found a shoe yet that suits me. I've tried Nike City Court (seems too narrow for my foot) Prince T7 (good but feels like I am plodding on the court) KSwiss (don't recall the style but feels like a lack of lateral support).
Playing a lot now so willing to pay more for a comfortable shoe. Any feedback welcome. Thank you!!

Adidas Barricades are good. From what I've seen of Nike's range (Rafa's and Roger's) they seem kind of narrow, especially Rafa's.

The best tennis shoes I got as a present from Lotto. It was a special edition for Wimbledon. 5+ years now and they are in great condition. I use them both in clay and hard courts. They are very good on grass as well. But in general, Nike's shoes has the best fit but don't last long ;)

I prefer Nike 2k10, Adidas Barricade 6.0 and 7.0

Playing tennis is all about sudden starts and stops, as well as moving quickly from side to side. The trouble is that, during extreme stopping, cornering, and pivoting, if the sneaker's outsole is too rigid, the tennis player loses contact with the playing surface, which results in a loss of footing. In addition, since runners do not usually move sharply sideways, while "on the run," the running shoe sole is totally unsuitable for the sideways movements a tennis player makes.

I prefer a flat shoe which is without heel; it is always good especially for tennis whether it is of Nike or Adidas.

I always prefer Adidas because it is so comfortable that I can put my leg into shoes for long time.

I just got some Asics gel-resolution 4 and so far they are the most comfortable tennis shoes i ever tried.

I play in Asics Gel indoor trainers and they are very comfortable, they cost 60 and they're actually running shoes but they're very good. Barely a mark on them ! made a big mistake of buying some Mountain Warehouse Lockton Waterproofs. Outdoor shoes built for going on rocks I think but there quite bulky and much harder to move freely in. I still managed to win two short sets of singles in them thought. They where a little over half the price of the Asics .
