Comments: These are the best tennis shoes I've owned in my 12+ years of retur to tennis, but these shoes are not
for everybody. Please read on -- 1) I'm a 5ft 10in 190lbs guy in my mid-30s, play 4.5 level, on the heavy side, but can move
around the court and step in to hit the ball. These shoes are the most stable shoes I've ever owned. I literally rolled my ankle
stepping on a ball while hitting a running forehand during practice, and I could feel these shoes protecting my ankle and refusing
to give - any other shoes and I'd be out for a month. With these, I got back 5 after mins of rest. 2) These shoes are heavy. They
are not for everybody. There is break in required and they won't be comfortable off the box. But I never felt that they slowed me
down - in fact the stability makes me move around freely on a hard court and not worry about injury. I have solid arch support
inserts by Spenco Rx to prevent foot issues, and the shoe / arch support combo is a dream. There are times when I change
directions laterally and I can just feel the stability of the shoes. 3) If you're already light-footed, in great shape and fast around the
court, you'll probably not like these. If you're slightly heavy, but still very mobile on the court, you'll love these for the support
and stability. They sit a little higher off the ground but give great support and stability. In fact I would not recommend light shoes
for people like me that are around 10-20 lbs too heavy since they'll bust their plantars. Please get heavier stable shoes and good
arch inserts. No shoe will protect your feet off the box - something I had to learn from the foot doctor the hard way. Hope this

Comments: These shoes were heavy and uncomfortable.
From: Ansel, 7/13
Comments: Wow these shoes are the heaviest I've ever worn. If you're fast, they will only drag you down. There were
also very bad on my knees.
From: Kevin, 5/13
Comments: So perfect to look at! Very sophisticated looking, in a class of it's own.
From: Renier, 3/13
Comments: Heavy Heavy Heavy! These feel bulky and like someone else said, frankenstein-ish! I liked the funky
look, but my family didn't. Tried them on around the house and was definitely not a comfortable fit. So I returned them for credit.
I will stick with Asics for my notorious toe dragging! TW has always been great at customer service. The other sites have restrictive
return policies so I can't return anything without it costing shipping. TW is my go-to tennis supply store!
From: Sushiray, 3/13
Comments: This shoe is way too heavy feeling. I felt like I was wearing frankenstein-like platform shoes, they sit
really high off the ground.
From: Tony, 3/13
Comments: The shoe provides great support and stability. Cushioning is good. The shoe is a bit heavy but after a
few matches you get used to it. The price now is really good.
From: John, 2/13
Comments: Great shoes! It has really good stability and durability! It is a bit heavier though. At first, it was a bit stiff
and really good traction on court.
From: Cambo, 2/13
Comments: These shoes are the best shoes I have ever had durability wise. They are very comfortable and look cool
as well! I am a notorious toe dragger and only buy shoes with durability warranties for the most part. I guess they could be a little
lighter but I believe you would sacrifice durability. Great job Head! I will definitely be a repeat customer!
From: Dave, 11/12
Comments: These shoes are very stiff, which makes it
uncomfortable and painful to play tennis in. There's a reason they are only 59 bucks.
From: Steven, 9/12
Comments: The first two months I had this shoe the top part near the toes started coming off (hard to
I got a hole in it.
From: Jack, 8/12
Comments: First off, as far as durability is concerned these shoes are
great! I usually wear out barricades in 2-3 months and these shoes
lasted me the same amount of time. Although due to the vertical
thickness of the sole they play heavier than the specs suggest because
your foot is sitting so high up. It takes a match or two to get used to
the way they play but all in all a good buy!
From: Alex, 7/12
Comments: Bought these shoes and they are very comfortable and fit really
well. I used to use the 2K11's. I did replace the insole from the get go. It's a
little on the heavy side but the uppers are very good quality. The sole
is already kind of worn down after 1 1/2 months but I play 4 times a week
and it has a warranty. Overall its a very good buy.
From: Christian, 7/12
Comments: The shoes look great. I do not like how they fit though. After using them in matches, I found
feet hurt quite a bit, especially in the toe area. I think the problem is that area around the toes is too big and my foot
there - fit is not snug. Never had problems like this with other tennis shoes - wore adidas Barricade's (2,4,5) before this
From: Albert, 4/12
Comments: Bought these shoes a couple of months ago. Loved the looks, confort and
stability provided. I can play 4 doubles games in one morning on Saturday and 3 more
on Sunday and my feet will continue to feel great. The first two weeks they were very
stiff. After three weeks they were great. I did change the insole for one that provides
more cushion. Also it would be great if Head makes the shoe 1 oz or 1.5 oz lighter.
From: Miguel M, 3/12
Comments: Not a great shoe. There's no break in period, ok ventilation, but it's a little on the bad side, not
cushioning, way too high off the ground for no feel. Durability? I can't believe I wore this out in a month and a half!!! I'm a
player, which means the higher ones would have some trouble with this shoe. But traction was pretty decent actually, and
From: Hyeoncheol, 3/12
Comments: Great shoe....and good looking shoe, but some flaws. The good part first. No break-in period
and if you
had previous ankle injuries or worried about twisting your ankle, this shoe does it's best to prevent it. The shoe definitely
your feet in place during fast pace court play and the stability is great, along with good comfort! I have very flat feet and
(bulky) high arch orthodontics...and the shoe still had fantastic comfort. Ok, the drawbacks. Depending on your play, the
not last very long at all. I had the same problem with a previous pair of Head shoes with the soles wearing out in 2-3
when playing 2 times a week. The outer design of the shoe is awesome, but underneath needs some work. After 6 hours of
had a white circle shape appear on the very front (top) of each foot. Explanation: Under the black exterior is the color
happen to drag the top of your toe area on the court, it removes the black color on the shoe and brings out the white color
underneath. Solution: use a black sharpie to make it black again. Overall, with the flaws, it really is a great shoe.
From: Eric, 2/12
Comments: Not a big fan of these shoes. Have played in them a few times now and I do not like the
feel cheaply made. The cushioning is about the only positive I have for these shoes.
From: NM, 2/12
Comments: These shoes are very stable but too a little breaking in. Cushioning was good but the inserts
pretty unimpressive so I took the ones out of my recently retired T22's and put them in. Now it has a more cushioned feel
T22's. I feel like they have improved my serving too, not certain how. It must be that new shoe effect? I love the color
looks great with my navy blue warmup pants. If they last 6 months then great!
From: John, 12/11
Comments: I'm very picky about my tennis equipment; darn near obsessive about
my shoes! I'm an all-court, mid 30's, 190 lbs male player. I have been a long-time adidas Barricade V wearer and could not
the Barricade VI because they were too narrow in the forefoot. I primarily play singles and need a stable, comfortable shoe
enough space to accommodate my ankle braces and Super Feet Inserts. This shoe fit my needs nicely. They break in easily
very comfortable. They are probably the most stable shoes I have ever worn. The only drawback to this shoe is the weight.
sacrificing a little speed and mobility for safety and security, but actually these shoes have helped me learn to play more
and move my opponent around; I can't rely on being as fast on defense as with lighter shoes. The durability won't be as
the Barricade's, but it isn't so bad that the warranty is needed.
From: Mike, 11/11
Comments: These shoes are very comfortable, fit my feet really well (size 10 UK, long feet, medium width).
cushioned, soft upper with great padded tongue which means you can tie laces tight if necessary. Extra lace hole for those
with thinner ankles. They remind me of the Barricade V's but with the comfort of the CB 2.3's with a bit more room in the
I'm an all court/serve and vollyer and like a sturdy shoe and stability wise these are right up there with the best. Not worn
before but they are top of my list now.
From: Richard, 11/11
Comments: Best fitting pair of tennis shoes I've had in 10+ years. I used to wear the adidas Barricades
but by the time they got to the Barricade 6; the shoe was not wide enough. Glad I found these shoes. No break-in
great, and look good. Head has my tennis shoe business.
From: Phil, 10/11
Comments: This is a really great shoes for performance tennis players. It has very good lateral support and
comfortable. I am always ready to sprint in this shoe. Lastly, it looks very nice.
From: Serkan, 9/11
Comments: I've had these shoes for about one month. I really like them a lot, best tennis shoe I've owned so
They're comfortable and have really good grip and cushioning. I'm a size 10, ordered a size 10, and they fit perfectly - my
little wider (too wide for Barricades) but these are great. Lastly, they look amazing, everyone just stares at my feet.
From: Anon, 9/11
Comments: I've worn the Prestige Pro shoes for a while and once the Speed Pro. I'm a big fan of Head
are the most comfortable out of the box I've worn. These Radical Pro shoes are no different. The shell has a little softer
than the other two Head shoes, this contributes to great comfort but also the need to snug up the laces a little after the
have stretched a bit. Sole is the same as the other Head shoes so I love the traction and cushion but I also know I'll burn
it in about 4 months of 4-5 times a week playing.
