Comments: I felt like Frankenstein wearing these shoes, as they were too clunky and inflexible. I prefer to
play tennis with adidas running shoes that offer more flexibility, cushion, and comfort. What
bothered me the most with these shoes is how stiff the mid-sole to the beginning of the front
sole is. This is what caused the Frankenstein effect I mentioned above. So for now, back to
my adidas ZX 750 shoes (which are great to play tennis in, although the thin outersole wears
out really fast!!). Next move is to try the Nike Vapor 9, which has reviews that seem to offer
me what I want: comfort, flexibility of the sole, running shoe feel, but made for the courts.
Comments: The pros were that it had no break-in required, it was super light weight, excellent ventilation, and
decent initial support for a light shoe. The cons were the durability (toe dragging will definitely tear the tip
up within a month), the cushioning doesn't last, and the insoles are paper thin. Overall it's a great match day shoes. I wouldn't
recommend it for regular play as the toe and cushioning will not stand up to even regular recreational play. I highly recommend
using better insoles -- green superfeet, for example -- with these shoes.
Comments: I'm a 4.0 player and play 3-5 times a week. I have been wearing the adidas Barricade series for the
past 2 years. The CC Boom feel really great, they are more comfortable than the Barricade's and feel very similar to the K-Swiss
Bigshot. No break-in time at all. The shoes are light and well ventilated which will be great for the summer/hotter weather to
come. The only thing which I can't comment on is the durability of the CC Boom since I've only started playing with them.
Comments: I'm a 4.0 player and am on the courts 3-4 days a week for 3-4 hours each session. I was previously
wearing the sdidas Barricade 7.0. The CC Boom feel great, no break in necessary. They feel comparable to the K-Swiss Bigshot.
are light weight, and well ventilated. They are going to be great for the hot summer months. In comparison to the Barricade 7.0,
CC Boom is lighter and feels a lot more comfortable. However, based on the meshing material used on the CC Boom, I think the
Barricade gives better support. Nonetheless, the CC Boom provides me with adequate support. Since I have not had the CC Boom
long, I don't know how the soles of the shoes compare.
