Comments: I agree with "Mike from 3/14." With respect to my previous pair of Nike tennis shoes, the Sentinels felt
a half size smaller (even without thick socks). When I checked Tennis Warehouse's International sizing I discovered that
notwithstanding the US sizing (of 11 in my case) for both pairs of shoes the European (EUR) sizing for the Sentinel's was 44 and
1/2 instead of the 45 which I had had with the Nikes.
Comments: An open mind can be a rewarded mind. I was hesitant to give Fila a chance because of its history with
Grant Hill basketball shoes being blamed for his ankle injuries (later admittedly not the problem). I come from a history of Nike
Court Ballistec, Vapor 9, Air Cage 2, Breathe Cage 2k10/2k11, adidas cc Feather 2, Head Speed Pro. etc. to name a few of the past
shoes I've worn. I'm an all court player with an aggressive game. Fila tennis shoes were always getting poor reviews for the most
part. This was the first shoe that got positive feedback on all the websites I checked. They are very sturdy. Passed the three point
test -- minimal flex in forefoot, no bend in midfoot and heel support which is what I try to look for compared to something like
the adidas cc Feather 2 which flexed almost everywhere except the heel, but had the best ventilation to date. I have a wide
forefoot with a medium arch. I've worn them once for an hour of play and traction was up to par, my feet were able to breathe and
were stable on lateral movements. There was no break-in needed. Comfortable from the beginning. Can't beat the sale price for a
6 month durability shoe (can't comment on yet, but seems like they will hold up). Considering picking up another pair (wish
another colorway was at that price). Highly recommended.
Comments: I have a wide foot and this shoe is one of the very few that I can wear on the court and not worry about
any foot problems. I have to search high and low for shoes that will fit and give good support. I wear very thick socks and I found
that ordering a half size small works very well. I highly recommend. Fila, please don't change this shoe!
Comments: These shoes are very much worth a try! They're not too expensive compared to Nike and adidas, but
they have the needed comfort and stability, thanks to the plastic shell covering the shoes. I also concur with the review that
ventilation is not as good, but it is not something to worry about. They're also comfy enough to wear on a regular basis.
Comments: I ordered these to try for size. My normal shoes are the Prince T22s. I followed the suggestion of
ordering a 1/2 size smaller and I do not agree with it. I wear a 10 in the T22s and ordered these in 9.5. Too small. I have
relatively low volume, wide feet that require extra room in the toebox for my pinky toes. The 9.5 Sentinels didn't have it. If you
need a wide shoe, do try the new Yonex Pro Cushions. I ordered them in my normal size 10 and they feel great on my toes.
Comments: Good comfort, pretty good durability, and decent cosmetics. I got fewer compliments than what I got
with my Propulses, but they felt more flexible and forgiving. Despite no break-in time, the shoes seemed to widen as I wore them,
causing some unwanted movement which resulted in sore toes and some minor blisters. But that was for the brief latter stage of
the shoes, right before they ripped through. Overall, good shoes.
Comments: Contrary to the previous write up, I think the Sentinel shoes run a half-size small and should be
ordered a half-size larger due to a narrow shoe box and wearing thorlon socks.
Comments: Fila is Back! The 2012/2013 line before the Sentinel was horrible. I have been wearing the pro player
Fila line for at least 5 years and generally they have been the most comfortable and durable until that last line. With the Sentinel
they have come back strong with a shoe that's light, durable, comfy and inexpensive. Give these a try. I put my Babalot's in the
back of my closet.
Comments: I highly recommend this shoe. No break-in needed. Extremely comfortable out of the box. Excellent
lateral support, and even though the toe box space is pretty generous, it still provides good support in quick sprints and
backpedalling. Very comfortable and supportive if you wear a size 2E athletic shoe. I didn't find the need to get a 1/2 size smaller.
Comments: Just got them and they feel great. I have not played with these shoes just yet, but I love the initial feel.
break in will be necessary. This was my alternative to the T-22 that was out of stock. Do get a 1/2 size smaller as suggested by
They also run slightly hot (as reviewed).
