Comments: Most comfortable shoe, period. Sadly, they wear out pretty quickly. After two pairs wore out, I switched
to a different brand. I'm going back to this shoe despite its short life. Nothing is as light or as easy to maneuver in as this shoe. I
have a big size 12 foot that is not wide. At first I thought the toe box was too roomy, but it works and is super comfortable. Love
this shoe, doesn't drag on the court and slow you down. Wish they weren't discontinuing it.
Comments: I am a junior state/southern ranked player and I loved these shoes. They were absolutely perfect, but
there was a hole at the toe in a month.
Comments: I just discovered this shoe this past spring through a friend. I just love it! I've had problems with
losing toenails from my foot moving inside my previous shoes during play, but not with this shoe. My foot stays snug and feels
great! I love the extra room in the front. At first wearing they were very comfortable and have stayed comfortable. I heard these
may be discontinued. That stresses me since I had hoped to buy these as my court shoe from here on. I play 4.0 singles/doubles
several times a week.
Comments: This shoe is very comfortable. Second time I wore them they felt great. They have very good lateral
support, but as other people said it does run a little wide in the forefoot. I am medium width and may have to wear 2 pair of
socks after they stretch a bit. The tongue helps keep your foot back in the heel though, because it is totally connected. You have
to push your foot into the shoe but once you are in it feels great.
Comments: I would not recommend this shoe at all. I wore it out in a month. My foot moves a lot in them and I
broke my toe nail. This shoe doesn't give you a lot of support because it is very soft, but it is very light.
Comments: I finally set aside enough money to purchase these shoes and they were definitely worth the wait. The
are more comfortable than just about any tennis shoe I can remember playing in a very long time. I had been wearing (and
desperately trying to wear out) a pair of Asics Gel Challenger 7's, which were simply horrible. The only thing I'd like to see is a
better selection of colors for this shoe, maybe a navy or royal blue, black, or red, and no pink!
Comments: I love these shoes. I have a tendency for achilles tendinitis, but never
in these shoes. Too bad Nike doesn't come up with more color combinations.
Comments: I love this shoe. It is flexible, gives good support & provides a lot of stability. It feels solid on your foot!
I had a pair of Asics and did not like them at all!
Comments: Having not worn Nike for many many years, this purchase is a pleasant surprise. Ankle support of the
shoe is very good. While the forefoot is still a bit roomy for my feet, which means potential blisters, I found that wearing double
socks solves a large part of the issue.
Cushioning and therefore comfort is quite good. Grip on hard courts is decent and allows me to glide nicely around shots.
Compared to the too grippy current season Adidas Adizero shoes, this is actually an improvement.
Comments: My daughter plays junior tennis and these are her favorite shoe. She has worn them for about five
years. She plays tennis about 20 hours per week and tournaments often. Only one time has the soles only lasted four months over
the summer and she was doing about 40 hours of tennis a week. We have experience the yellowing after she had them for about 6
Comments: I have worn this shoe for 6 years...back when they made them in different colors, and love it. Why is
Nike discontinuing them if they are listed as the "best seller?"
Comments: I don't know why Nike makes any other tennis shoe; they reached perfection with these. I have high
arches and a wide forefoot, and these shoes work great for me. They're comfortable right out of the box, but also very
supportive. I tend to turn my right ankle if I'm not careful with my footwork, but have NEVER done so in these shoes. WHY do
they only come in plain white??!! And WHY aren't they EVER on sale? Oh right, because everyone wears them, so none of the stores
need to put them on sale. I do agree with the reviewer who said they yellow quickly. I don't care as much about that as
performance, but should probably try cleaning my next pair regularly to see if it helps.
Comments: These shoes are extremely comfortable, but very thin. Also I haven't seen anyone mention that the
color of the front "cage" yellows very badly!!! So ugly I couldn't wear them after the second time. Everyone else's seem to yellow
just as much as mine, I noticed at my club. Doesn't it bother anyone else but me?!! The front part is made of a rubbery plastic,
whereas the heel part is a bit harder, like faux leather. It's a shame because the shoe is overall very nice. The color
turning should not happen on a shoe of this price!
Comments: I thought these shoes were just decent until I got an adidas pair, adidas Court adilibria Wh/Yellow,
which seemed great at first. The adidas pair turned out to be terrible; they hurt my feet and legs. I went back to the Nike pair and
have not had problems. However they were not as good as my pair of Asics Gel Challengers (the first model).
Comments: The best shoes ever! My life would be so misery without them. I wish they are available in more color
Comments: I've been wearing this brand for few years. Very comfortable and no break in time needed. I just tried
the newer version at the same size. Too narrow for my toe area. I had to return it. Only wish this one have different color as
Comments: I love this shoe. It's really comfortable although when it starts to wear out it rubs the ankle a little bit. I
stuck with it for about a year until I got the blue and green Nikes. Love them both.
Comments: Love this shoe, fits like a glove, no need to break in. I recently tried the newer version and didn't like
them, the support in the arch wasn't as good and they weren't comfortable. I am a USTA player and club player.
Comments: Great shoe for support of feet and legs. Have not had them long but overall very satisfied with the
Comments: These are the most comfortable tennis shoes I have ever worn. I have long,
narrow feet. I was able to order these shoes in my normal size and have plenty of room
through the toe box area. I went from the heavy Adidas Barricade V to these lightweight
shoes that feel like running shoes. If you like to run for every ball on the court, then these are
the shoes to go with.
Comments: I've been purchasing this shoes years and years for my kids. Only problem is sole
goes bad in one month. It'll be eaten by court very quickly. So you just have to keep buying it
Comments: I have not purchased new tennis shoes for 3 years, I would try shoes on and
nothing felt comfortable. My tried and true Adidas have finally officially worn out...not a
bump left on the sole...they are slick and too dangerous to keep wearing. I went to a "tennis
store' and tried on at least 10 pair of shoes...these were the "least" uncomfortable so I
purchased them. Today I played tennis for the first time in a year, well my feet feel
wonderful..the shoes were light on the feet, no pressure points and overall very comfortable!!
Comments: I ordered these shoes for my daughter after reading all the great comments, but I really didn't expect to
keep them. She has an extremely difficult time finding comfortable shoes when trying them on in person. BUT she absolutely
loved these shoes from the moment she put them on! She has very long toes and a long, narrow foot and heel, and these fit her
perfectly! I'll definitely continue ordering them for her, as long as she's playing tennis!
Comments: These shoes are very nice, comfortable and very light weight. This pair of shoes I've been using in my
practice and tournament. I wish Nike would make different colors.
Comments: My daughter loves these shoes. They fit her narrow, flat feet very well. No break in time needed. I hope
Nike never stops making these shoes.
Comments: I DO NOT LIKE THESE SHOES AT ALL! I have NOT worn the shoes to play in because I am returning them
so I cannot say how they feel after I play. Although I wear a medium size shoe with a medium arch, there was too much room in
the toe area. There was no cushioning (or least I could not feel any) in the heal or bottom part of the shoe. I could immediately
feel a place where the shoe would be rubbing on top of my foot near my toes. The only thing I liked was the "snugness" of the
shoe because my Prince shoes stretched out after a while.
Comments: These shoes kills my feet! The arch of my foot is aching by the time I am done playing. I train 2-3
hours a day, and these shoes have been some of the worst I have tried.
Comments: Lightweight and comfortable, but wore out the quickest of any
Nike tennis shoe I've ever tried. Breathe Free III was better for wear,
but unfortunately discontinued by Nike.
Comments: I loved these shoes a couple of years ago when they had the cool pink and blue colors. I stopped
wearing them, but decided to try them again. It took about a week to break them in; the first couple days my feet and legs were
killing me. Once they got broken in they are nice. They are very breathable, so my feet don't get too hot and comfortable. I play
about 6 times a week, 3 hours a day and they have held up nicely so far. I would recommend them if you have time to break them
Comments: I loved these shoes when I first wore them then my feet started KILLING me! My toes went completely
numb. Too expensive to be disappointed.
Comments: I LOVE this Nike tennis shoe! It is lightweight, feminine, and low to the ground, so you don't have to
worry about ankle problems. I have had about 10 pairs of this specific shoe. My only problem is the color! Nike needs to bring
back the pretty purple, pink, blue versions of this shoe from a couple years ago!!
Comments: I usually don't comment, but these shoes really are great. I have long toes, a
narrow foot, a narrow ankle, and require a wide toe box. These shoes are comfortable out of the box. I'm on my fifth or sixth
pair (lost count) and always keep a new pair in reserve in case Nike stops making them.
Comments: I love this shoe! It is very lightweight and you don't have to break them in. I have never rolled my ankle
in this shoe. A great shoe overall. It does wear out a little too fast but you just can't beat the shoe for performance and comfort.
Comments: This shoe fit comfortably from the moment I put it on. I wore it around the house and on the elliptical
machine for several hours before hitting the courts. I've played in it twice, playing two sets each time, and have not experienced
any negatives. It's lightweight and is very easy to move around the court without catching on the shoe edges. I hope Nike
continues to make this shoe, I think it'll be my tennis shoe of choice for a long time to come!
Comments: This is the most comfortable tennis shoe I have ever had!! I wish Nike made them in more color
combination's to match all of my outfits! Fits and feels like a sock! Great traction on the court. I used to roll my ankle all the time,
but not in these. I feel so in control with these shoes. Hopefully, Nike will keep making these!
Comments: This is my 8th pair. I absolutely LOVE these shoes. You don't have to break them in, but they don't last
that long. I train 4 -5 hours a day and they last me 1 - 1.5 months. They also don't look that big. An overall good buy!
Comments: Yikes! I felt compelled to share a different review, after so many glowing ones. These shoes, although
lightweight, absolutely KILL my feet. My toes and insteps go to sleep each time I try and play in them. They seem roomy enough,
but obviously something is not right. Just don't seem to have good luck with Nike. I so wanted them to work, but definitely not
for me! Money down the drain!
Comments: I love this shoe. I used to wear these K-Swiss shoes that weighed a TON. I didn't know any better - it's
what some guy sold me when I first started playing. I'd get these awful cramps in my instep. These shoes feel like I am playing on
air, and they fit my feet like a glove. They DO break down faster it seems - I thought I was crazy when at about 4 months, they felt
a bit less supportive. It's now about 5.5 months and I think it's time for a new pair but I don't care because it has been a
WONDERFUL 5.5 months. My shoe is no longer holding me back.
Comments: I blew through these soles in 4 weeks playing 3-4 times weekly. I also developed shin splints and
returned to my Prince T-10s for now. Very disappointed with the lack of support and poor sole lifespan. On the plus side, they
are so lightweight and breathe well. I am very disappointed in Nike shoes lack of quality and do not plan to buy from them again-
what a pity.
Comments: This is the best shoe ever! I recommend everybody to get them. They might wear out a little fast but I
think it's worth it! Get this shoe I have had another Nike and they weren't as good!
Comments: I have flat feet and had a hard time finding shoes that I was comfortable in but this shoe is GREAT! I
wore them for the first time when playing in a tournament and forgot I had new shoes on. No break in is required.
Comments: I love these shoes. I loved my first pair so much that I wore a hole in them.
Comments: I just purchased these shoes. They felt great on my feet and compared to others, not as bulky. I've been
told Nike no longer honors the 6-month outsole guarantee, but this site is showing that they do. Will Nike honor this regardless of
where I purchased them or only from this site (similar site)? Thanks!
Comments: Love this shoe! But I go though the sole very easily, on third pair this year. Got first pair free from
Nike, but will still keep buying them I'd they only last me 5 months at a time.
Comments: Every shoe I put on takes three to four wears for them to feel comfortable. A few girls I play with on a
weekly basis recommended these shoes to me. I put them on and about an hour later, one of the girls asked how they felt. I
completely forgot they were new shoes. They are great! I have worn them for about a month now, and they haven't hurt one bit. I
recommend these shoes to anyone.
Comments: I do not like Nike shoes for anything but tennis. These shoes are extremely comfortable. I actually have
a wide foot and a high arch, and they fit great with those "Sole Support" inserts. Highly recommend. The only negative is that I
think there should be one more hole for the laces to go through near the ankle.
Comments: The best shoe I've ever worn and I've had some nightmare shoes! I wanted to thank all of you ladies for
your reviews. After reading pages and pages of reviews for all different brands of tennis shoes on this site, I picked this one
because of all of your reviews. I ordered my normal half size larger as I do when purchasing Nike shoes, as they tend to run
narrow and a bit short. When they arrived, they were really roomy in the toe box and even the length was generous. I actually
needed my correct size and needed to send these back for a half size smaller but I couldn't stand to take them off my feet, they
felt so wonderful!
Comments: AWESOME for people with narrow, flat feet. They are comfortable and don't slip on your feet. The
tongue of the shoe is attached so you don't have to pull it up all the time. They last very long for players who play everyday.
Comments: I hated that the shoe tongue was sewn to the shoe. I have a high arch, and I couldn't even get my foot
in to check for fit. I loosened the laces and took out the innersole, and still couldn't get it on. I was very disappointed on what I
think is a manufacturing shortcut. Have women's sport shoes been made this way for long? I haven't bought a women's sport shoe
for some time because I have a long foot and need a wider toe box, and just bought men's shoes. I was looking forward to a
lighter weight, less bulky shoe, but alas that sewn in tongue.
Comments: Best looking tennis shoes by far! Have owned 4 pair! I have a very narrow heel and have found these
don't slip. Comfortable, fashionable, but wear out fairly quickly and I don't ever "wear out" any other kind of shoe. All in all,
Comments: I have just received this shoe and wore it for the first time on Monday to play tennis. It was so
comfortable; did not need any breaking in. Felt like it was made for my foot. I need toe room and a wide forefoot and it has all
that. Fits like it was made for my foot. Wonderful shoe!
Comments: I love this shoe! Of the Nike shoes I have worn, this is the most comfortable.
Comments: Love the shoe! Great support and rollover control, light and comfy. But, like most great things.. doesn't
last at all!
Comments: I really liked these shoes. I never got any blisters or ripped the skin on my feet. But, they do wear out
in about a month or so if you play a ton of tennis.
Comments: This is my favorite tennis shoe. I have narrow feet and high arches and these fit really well. I am going
on my third pair now. My only complaint is that the soles wear out kind of quickly, but it may just be because I play a lot.
Comments: After trying a lot of brands and styles, I found that that this shoe was the best of the best. Although
they wore out in about two months, they were so comfortable and I don't get any foot pain anymore. I am a club member, playing
about 4 days a week and a few tournament a months, so these shoes definitely held up to their ability! I fully recommend them!
Comments: Best tennis shoes on the planet! The tongue-less design is classic and one I hope Nike keeps. It's like
wearing a pair of socks that offer total support and confidence when going all out in a game. They're light, comfortable and
breathable - even in brutal 90+ degree temps and high humidity. Keep it up, Nike!
Comments: Well, I guess I am the only one who doesn't like this shoe. The first time I wore them they were a dream.
Light and cool, they are very attractive. The second time I wore them my plantar fasciitis flared up which I hadn't had a problem
with that in about 5 years. I continued to wear them because they are so expensive (and they match my uniform). Now I have a
terrible case of plantars that is keeping me off the courts.
Comments: I absolutely LOVE this shoe. I have had no problems with them. Previously, I was using the vapors and I
went up a 1/2 size like they said, but my feet were still smashed in the tiny toe box. I felt like there wasn't enough room for my
big toe. I actually lost my left big toenail because of it. I am a loyal Nike buyer for both sneakers and sneakers, so I decided to try
another pair. These shoes however, have plenty of room for my toes. My toes aren't smashed at all. I can run full speed and
suddenly stop and my toes still don't jam into the front of the toe box. They are great for practice and great for play. I don't
really have a problem with my soles wearing out like some of the others and I play frequently in the summer and I am still on my
first pair. Bottom line.......... THESE SHOES ARE THE BEST SHOES I HAVE PLAYED TENNIS IN.
Comments: As a person with wide feet, it is difficult to find a pair of shoes that are not too tight across the wide
part of the foot. Especially in the Nike brand. These are not too tight at all. As a matter of fact they are very forgiving while at the
same time supportive. I will buy them again.
Comments: After I wore these shoes my ankles hurt but I just had to strengthen the ankle muscles and now they
are 100 percent better. There is actually nothing wrong with this shoe. So comfortable and breathable for your foot. I never have
any problem with my feet and I can move quickly around the court, not to mention they're cute too. Lasts pretty long for me, I am
a club player who plays a couple tournaments a month. But remember; wear good, dry socks to avoid blisters.
Comments: I play singles so when I reach for a ball my body is able to move forward because of the soft toe box.
No more big toenail pain. I have lost too many big toenails. Unbelievable quickness with this shoe. I called them my magic
shoes. Actually I think the shoes lasts as long as any other Nike shoe. I buy 3 pairs at a time cause Nike in the past has always
changed styles when you finally found a shoe that works.
Comments: I have always been a hardcore Adidas fan but friends told me to get these shoes and
tried them out they are very comfortable and I love the uni-tongue fit. I just can't get enough of these shoes
durability. Excellent balance, traction and breathability I give these shoes a ten out of ten.
Comments: I LOVE this shoe. The most comfortable shoe I have ever played tennis in. The only
bad thing is the soul of the shoe wears out very fast. I play clay and hard court. The shoe lasted me a short time
before the area around my big toe on the sole wore out! But still, I will buy my third pair.
Comments: This shoe is very cute and comfortable, but the outer sole does wear out pretty fast. My
bubble has popped and resulted in a squeaky left shoe. The warranty should replace it. But other than that an
Comments: Perhaps this model improved. I have last year's model and it is heavy and hot. These
seem lighter, though. In these I blistered easily and at different points of my foot. It feels rather flat and
cumbersome. My mid-sole hurts and arches ache after about 1 1/2 hours tough play. They're also not easy to
clean. BUT they do give good side to side support, and fast stopping. I don't think they are meant for drills and
training. I am going to try a different brand.
Comments: I struggled to find tennis shoes but when I finally found this pair (in light blue -
awesome!), they are so
comfortable and so easy to break in. Like a pair of slippers.
Comments: I LOVE these shoes. Usually I like switching up my shoes after I wear them out, but I
have been buying
these same shoes for 4 or 5 times. They are so comfortable, light weight, and they don't slow you down while
running. It also
takes no time to break them in. The only disappointment is that I heard Nike is only going to start making them
in all white.
Personally I don't like the all white, I like the colors! (Don't worry, there is a light blue color coming in March,
2006 - TW Staff).
Comments: These are the most comfortable shoes I've worn in several years. Great job, Nike. They
fit very well in
the heel and do not slide up and down. I bought the white version as they will go with all of my outfits.
Comments: Most comfortable shoe ever, use it during my cross training and my feet never hurt!
Love, love, love
Comments: I love that there is no tongue. It makes the shoe even more comfortable. I am on a high
school team and we do a lot of running and they are very light and feel great while running.
Comments:I absolutely love these shoes. I have been through three pairs,
which is a disappointment for such a
comfortable shoe, but with Nikes warranty you are
able to send them in and get a replacement within a certain period of time. Playing up to 4
hours a day is often hard on your feet,
but I have never had any aching or pains after a workout in these. The colors add excitement
and variety to the everyday same
old same old, white
and black tennis shoes. I would recommend these shoes 100%.
Comments: I'm very sad, because I must say, that these are great and the most
comfortable shoes I've ever had,
but I broke my cartilago articularis of my toe (sorry, English is not my mother-tongue). These
shoes are too soft, and I don't
think protect the legs while playing tennis. Perhaps these shoes are OK for young people,
but I think seniors should be careful
(my age 53). Now, after 2 months I'm trying to start playing again, though my leg is still little
Comments: Great shoe for fit of narrow feet and narrow heels. My daughter has
tried everything to fit, double AA
to Triple AAA foot, and this shoe produces the greatest fit. The outer soles do wear down,
but warranty helps. She's a
tournament player who wears them down in no more than 6 weeks, but we did get a
replacement pair from the warranty.
Comments: These shoes hurt my feet. I'm so disappointed because they are so
cute and match several Nike tennis
outfits. One of my teammates had the same experience with same shoe. Both ours are light
blue color if that means anything.
Comments: Great fit! Well cushioned and very glove-like. Still, roomy toe box. It
squeezes the heel so well and nicely (w/o hurting) that I can play all out w/o even tying them.
Bad colors. New white one is hot. Thanks Nike! I couldn't find a shoe that fit this well since
the Air Zoom Breathe Frees. I tried the Nike Thrive IIs, Prince NFS, Adidas Barricade III, and
Nike Vapor Speed S2s and I've never had a shoe his comfy!. I wear it for everything... Don't
listen to the critics, GREAT DURABILITY!
Comments: I think Nike should come out with better colors, like all white or white
and black. These shoes are pretty and nice and stable and all, but the colors need to
change. NIKE! COME OUT WITH BETTER COLORS FOR WOMEN! PLEASE! Otherwise, I
love this shoe!
Comments: I love the style and colors of this shoe, it is slightly on the heavy side
but so comfortable. I am a high school tennis player and play almost every day. For that
purpose, the shoe is perfect, although I purchased these in silver and lavender.
Comments: Great shoe. The most comfortable I have played in for months!
Comments: Most amazing shoe Nike has ever made. Light weight on your
feet and breathable.
Comments: I absolutely agree with Marsha & Christine. It's an adorable shoe
with great performance. However, after four
weeks of intense play the outsole is completely worn through.
Comments: I agreed with Marsha from Melbourne's comment. The shoe fits
well and looks pretty, but lasted only three
months. I am a club player.
