Comments: Agree with John, "felt like I had 2 rocks in my shoe". I can't give any feedback on durability, since I
tossed them court side after a match and actually walked back to my car without shoes. This has turned me off Nike for the
Comments: After grinding through 3 or 4 pairs of Prince T22's, I figured I would take a shot
at these to see if they might hold up better and be able to fit my slightly wider than normal
feet. It could have been a real disaster as the last pair of Nikes I had were when Agassi still had
long hair. After about 10 hours of hard practice time on the court I would give them an A+ so
far. I go through shoes like water as I am one of those who treat a hard court like clay most
of the time, sliding a few feet sometimes, often dragging the back foot, so I don't expect
most shoes to last through such treatment. These have been fantastic so far. I see no signs
of visible wear other than a bit off the bottom tread. Great breathability, and a lot more
structurally sound than the T22's. Good flexibility and so far great durability. I don't know
what the webbing on the top is made of, but it's pretty well thought out as it allows the shoe
to bend well while giving lateral support and keeping the cloth parts off the court when
dragging the toes. I'm impressed, and the move was a good one. Prince is going to have to
come up with something better to get my business back.
Comments: First off these run small. I am surprised not too many reviewers have mentioned this, I wear a 6.5 to 7
in men's sports shoes and had to buy a 7.5. Buy a 1/2 size bigger than you normally wear, as these run narrow and tight.
Comments: Very nice looking and comfortable shoe but I noticed it wears very quickly, and I have pretty lazy
footwork and don't run around that hard. So, now I only wear them when I sit around the clubhouse after matches.
Comments: I purchased these shoes about 3 months ago. I play on average twice a week. It was a great shoe.
Great feel. I liked the combination of light weight and the support they offered. These shoes however really lacked in durability. I
wore a hole right through the big toe of the sole. Very disappointed with how long these didnt last me.
Comments: This shoe is great. The durability is great (so far)! The
traction is what amazes me. I was playing a doubles set tonight in the
mist/rain, and I didn't slip once. Overall, I definitely recommend this shoe.
Comments: Durability is a problem. I agree 100% with Danny's comments. I play 2-3 times a week only had them 2
months. Right under my right big toe the yellow is showing about an inch. Never buy these again. 6 month
refund is what they need to offer on these shoes. I am a 4.0 player.
Comments: This shoe is just a terrible shoe, not worth it at all, it
lasted me maybe 4 matches? The durability is really horrendous and the
comfort is overrated, I honestly think this shoe is a waste of money and
should not be bought.
Comments: Awesome shoe. Great comfort right out of the box, not really a whole lot of break in time
required (depending on how often and hard you play of course). I havent noticed any major signs of wear yet, so, so
far, great durability. Overall I am very impressed!
Comments: Shoes are extremely comfortable and stylish. Downfall though is that they only lasted me
about a month and a half before they started ripping through the inner sole. I played at least 5 times a week though for
Comments: I am writing this comment after approximately 20 hours of wear. Overall
cushioning is acceptable and excellent support for a light weight shoe.
Comments: These shoes have a great feel and are lightweight. They provide excellent lateral stability and
breathe well as the name implies. The major con is that I've only had them a month and half and the front part of the
sole near my big toe is significantly worn and soft. It's only a matter of time before a hole appears. I play 3 times a
week both singles and doubles.
This shoe should come with a 6 month durability warranty.
Comments: After a few hours my foot really started to hurt. Bad pain in the arch area. Arch area felt a
little too high
and too narrow. Almost started to feel like I had two large rocks in my shoes. Never had that problem with Nike before.
Comments: I am a high school doubles 2s varsity tennis player and I find these shoes very comfortable. I
have been wearing them for 4 weeks with a two hour practice everyday on school days. The grip on the bottom of my
shoe is now flat and when I lunge for a quick volley or have to split-step I slip.
Comments: Comments: Great comfort, good ventilation. Low profile so it feels 'quick' but maybe be a bit
too low; at
times it feels too much like a slipper and I have to tie the laces tighter than I would normally. A bit long in the toe box
downside is durability. After 6 h play I have worn the tread down in the toe area.
Comments: The best tennis shoes I own. Perfect fit and very comfortable.
Comments: I play college tennis, and have bought shoes consistently from tennis warehouse for years. I
make the decision to go with Nike, and have never once been disappointed. These shoes are excellent, especially given
Durability is as good as it gets, with absolutely no comfort sacrificed. Overall, it's nicely balanced and not too heavy.
recommended it to my entire team, and would do the same to anybody playing either indoor or outdoor tennis at every
Comments: Although this is a great performing shoe, it's durability is quite poor. I've only had them
Christmas, it is now the end of february, and there is a whole in the right toe, only playing 2 hours per week (it's winter
expensive to play indoors). I am quite hard on my shoes, and am a toe-dragger, but still.....I guess I will have to go to
Ballistecs, even if only for the 6 month guarantee. Too bad, as these were really nice and comfortable shoes.....can't
afford them at
this rate though.
Comments: Nice weight, styling, fit. Shoes need about an hour of break in. Bottoms
feel slippery first time out. Forefoot area lacks adequate cushion, feels hard and
flat when you run. Some call this low to the ground feel, I call it pain. The
herringbone tread wears down quickly at toe and ball of foot. Since Vapors have
stability issues, your best bet is Ballistecs.
Comments: This is by far one of the best shoes I have worn, slightly heavy but still very
durable and very maneuverable.
Comments: I have previously used the Lunar Vapor 8 Tours and the Court Ballistec 3.3s but have thought
each have their own extremes. LV8s having a durability problem after a month of continuous play and the Ballistecs
heaviness and bulkiness factor and some really tough break in time. The Breathe 2k11s are right smack dab in the
provide the durability of the 3.3s and also the maneuverability of the Vapors. I really love them and they felt broken in
of the box!
Comments: Coming from the 2K10's, the 2K11's are: slightly heavier, much more stable, offers more
stiffer, and more padded on tongue. Otherwise, sole and foot bed sit just like 2K10's -- low to the ground with great
meaning also low cushioning in footbed, but same as Fed's custom Vapors.
Comments: This shoe is so soft! Switching from a Nike Court Ballistec 3.3, this shoe is almost perfect for
me! It just
feels like a glove. But for my feet! It's light weight, durable, breathable, and overall a good shoe! I might just have to
pair of these! (Never gotten a same pair of shoes twice).
Comments: I don't think I would buy these again. I got a hole in the toe after 3 months. I am a 4.5
Comments: I bought these shoes because I saw a pro playing with them in a local ATP tournament and
point on they stood out to me. He won the tournament and I needed new shoes anyways so I started doing my research
decided on these. These are by far the best tennis shoes I have ever had. The cushioning is amazing, they are light, and
amazing. I got these out of the box and went and played a 3 set match and they gave me great feel. I could change
much quicker then I could before with my old shoes, these are just overall amazing shoes. I suggest them to anyone
new shoes. They give you the best feel of the court and are so light. If you buy these shoes you wont regret it.
Comments: The only big complaint I have about this shoes is durability.
Comments: Honestly, I think these are the best shoes on the Nike tennis shoe line out of all of them. The
Ballistec 3.3 is too bulky and takes too long to break-in. The Vapor 9 is lighter and faster but lacks support. The Zoom
2k11 has both. You could wear these right out of the box and play a three set match with no problem. They are super
They also have more support, making them just a tiny bit bulkier than the 2k10s, but its not that big of a deal.
doesn't believe me should go watch the Tennis Warehouse review of this and then come back.
Comments: These shoes are fantastic!I have had no problems with them up to this point. They have
and are very light. I highly recommended.
Comments: I purchased these one month ago and whilst comfortable straight out of the box, after
10 hours of wear on hard courts, the outsole is starting to show significant signs of wear. At this rate, I will be lucky to
months out of them which is a very poor investment for the price. A previous shoes (adidas Barricade 5) lasted well
months with same amount of weekly use. Would not consider buying these again.
Comments: I have always worn Nike shoes, but never saw anything I "thought" would be good for
decided to give these a try. Wow, what can I say, I love them! Great traction, stable, breathability, and comfort. I highly
these for racquetball, you will not be disappointed!
Comments: Sorry! I have been wearing Nike shoes off and on for 7 years, but these just hurt my feet! I
putting in a very thick insole to get rid of the pain, but they're just good for practice. I loved the Breathe Free 2 shoes
back, but these is not it!
Comments: These shoes felt good when I first tried them on, but when I tried playing tennis with them,
started to hurt. I am now just using them as casual shoes, hopefully they'll feel better once I break them in.
Comments: I love them. I have been looking for a clay court sneaker and these had the right tread. After
the reviews about the 2K11 having more stability and cushion, I took the plunge. First time using them was this
morning. My foot
is medium arch, medium width. They felt great. Well cushioned in the heel, great stability. I use the Barricade 6's for
The 2K11's for comparison feel like a snowboard boot vs the Barricade 6's which feel like a ski boot. The 2K11's have
stability but not over the top like the Barricade 6's. I am very happy with my purchase. Great traction on clay, not as
good as the
Babolat red/white shoes for clay, but still good.
Comments: This is a good shoe and I think it's the best that Nike has made all year, but it needs to come
with a 6
month guarantee though.
Comments: I had the 2k11 and loved the lightweight feel and breathability of the shoe. I saw that the
out decided to try them out. They feel a bit more bulky than the previous model, but it still has that same breathability.
played with the 2k10s, you really have to try the 2k11s.
Comments: Good shoe, but it needs a 6 month guarantee on the outsole! How can Nike not offer this for
notch shoe? Based on what I have seen, the tread will last about 2.5 to 3 months on the hard courts. Maybe they should
the CB 3.3 and this shoe to make a great light weight, comfortable, good looking durable shoe with a six month
on Nike!! This shoe is similar to Agassi's old shoes.
Comments: I got my pair of 2K11s yesterday and played in them for the first time this morning. Some initial impressions:
1) This is not an updated 2K10 - the shoe feels plusher, more stable, and beefier than the old model. Nike may be doing to the 2K10 with the 2K11 what Asics did with the Resolution 2 when it came out with the Resolution 3. This shoe feels more like a CB 2.3 than it does a 2K10 - and that may be a good thing.
2) As a result, the shoe needs more break-in than the 2K10. I will update in a week or so and let you know how that goes. The shoe may be more like the Nike Cage in that respect.
3) In general, there was less "slop" in the toebox than the 2K10 and the foot was help into the shoe more securely. There was more cushion and this this may also relate to this being a more durable model than the 2K10. The tongue was more padded and the shoe felt more comfortable, as well.
In short, if you were looking for something like a lighter CB 3.3 or a more stable and cushioned 2K10, this may be the
you. It seems to be the missing link in the Nike line, a relatively light, breathable, stable, cushioned performance shoe
appears to be geared to be more durable than the prior model. I am liking the changes Nike has made in this model.
come as this shoe breaks in.
Comments: In the quest to replace my last pair of Vapor VI, the Vapor VIII seemed logical but didn't
come close to
the snugness I was looking for. I tried the Ballistecs 3.3 as well and the heaviness was evident. They were also pinching
midfoot but might have broken in if I gave them a week or so.I didn't like the 2K10 because I found my foot swimming

replicates the Vapor VI. Additionally, a closer look revealed the lacing pattern includes the last extra stagger drop

is exactly the Vapor VI. I just finished playing an entire weekend of matches with them. I am very happy.
