Comments: These shoes fit comfortably enough, but the soles just dont
hold up very long. I play on hard court five times per week and the
traction started disappearing in a couple weeks. Now there is a large
hole in the sole. I will be sticking with a shoe with a durability
guarantee from now on...
Comments: I'm a big fan of Nike shoes, this particular shoe was a huge disappointment. They hurt my feet from
day 1 and I tried breaking them in with no luck. My feet are medium in width, each time I wore them my feet hurt near the width
of the shoe.
Comments: These shoes feel comfortable right out of the box. I generally go for the Barricade but these shoes
have the fit and stability of that shoe but feel a lot lighter and certainly less bulky. With the Barricades I feel a bit like a golden
retriever with big feet, these shoes offer a lightness that I enjoy. Yes, they are more roomy in the width at the front but I like that,
if you have a narrow foot I can't imagine you liking the shoe as I do. I am a strong 3.5 player and play pretty much, daily.
Considering buying another pair to keep in my closet for next year, but who knows, I go through about three pairs a year and feel
the repercussions of wearing shoes after they break down. Generally I know it's time to change up when my upper back thighs
ache. I've learned that having a good shoe really is important. Being a Canadian customer many of my friends wonder if it's worth
buying from the States. It is. The duty costs are comparable to the gst/pst and if Tennis Warehouse offers any deal it beats any
deal I can find here. I live in Toronto, not a small community and all in all buying online at Tennis Warehouse offers the selection I
cannot find and I receive my order usually in a couple of days and to date, never over a week. I am writing this testimonial because
I do base my choices on testimonials here, so thanks to all who have written.
Comments: I love love love this shoe. Great support. Great ventilation. Very durable. I had the Barricade 5's and
these just feel so much more low to the ground, less clunky and lightweight. I have a wide foot and this shoe fits me just fine. I
tried on the lunar speed 3's and those were too tight (I LOVE the cosmetics of the Lunar Speed 3's though). These fit just right!
Comments: I really wanted these shoes to feel as good as they looked. Unfortunately, they did not have much arch
support at all, and felt very "boxy".
Comments: I love this shoe! It was comfortable right out of the box. They last a very long time too - 6 months,
given the fact that I play tennis 4-5 times a week as an intermediate player.
Comments: These shoes are killing me. My feet hurt so bad, I had to quit during a match. I have tried them on 3
separate occasions and I am just not getting any comfort from them at all. Not sure they have the support that I was looking for
Comments: Recently I bought my second and third pair of these shoes to stock them up. I never buy the same
model of shoes but I was so pleased with the lightweight, softness, comfort and cushion that I decided to make an exemption with
these. I also bought a pair of men's 2K10 for my boyfriend and he shares the same opinion. Comfortable right out of the box.
Surprisingly plenty of space in the toebox for wide feet. Despite I have narrow feet, shortly after these shoes are slightly broken in
(no serious breaking in is needed!), this slightly larger toe box does not matter any more since they fit like a glove.
Comments: This shoe was extremely durable. I play 3-4 times a week. I also played collegiate tennis with these
shoes and they lasted me a long time. I've had them for over a year now and the soles just ripped on me. That's good considering,
I've been playing and running/hiking with these. Love them and getting another pair today!
Comments: I gave Nike shoes one last chance after two failed attempts to
wear Nike's and I can say that third time is the charm! The shoes were
soft from the get go and it needed no break in. Had a little bit of a
problem with the arch from my left foot but it's all good now. It is very soft compared to adidas Barricade V or any adidas shoes. It
is very light weight, soft and good looking. I recommend wearing thick socks though. It kind of started hurting my toes with thin
Comments: I'm disappointed in this shoe. It is much stiffer than I expected and there is a plastic strap that runs
across the width of the foot. This is probably for stability, but unfortunately it hits right at the bone below my big toe. Lateral
movement causes the side of my foot to bang into this plastic strap and causes me much pain. I play at a 3.5 level for about 2-3
times a week. I'm not going to be able to wear these shoes. I am very disappointed.
Comments: This is a pretty shoe. I did lots of research. It does irritate the inside of my ankle but changed my
socks to overcome that. I found it is not good for a narrow foot. The width of the forefoot along with the meshiness allows for
shifting which really hurts on hard stops. Wish there was a measurement/indicator for width kind of like there is for arch support.
Comments: I think this shoe is great and a nice upgrade from the Breathe Free II. I like the tongue better than the
attached one on the Breathe Free II, and they are also lighter. Contrary to what some other posters said, I didn't experience any
durability or comfort issues. I would definitely buy again.
Comments: These shoes are very uncomfortable until broken in. I have a scar on my foot from these shoes. They
cause tons of blisters and wouldn't ever buy these shoes. Look great, though.
Comments: I love the comfort and there was no break-in period. However, my first pair last about 2 weeks before
the uppers tore and the replacement pair didn't last any longer. If you are going to play tennis in them, I'd advise you to find
Comments: This shoe is very good for players who are quick and need a durable shoe. It holds up well and barely
needs breaking in. I would recommend it for any player that is looking for quality and style in one.
Comments: I have a wide foot and the shoe fit my foot just right. It's durable and light. It gets the job done. I had
the Barricades before and I really like the lighter weight of this shoe. A plus is that the shoe itself looks really nice. Very well
Comments: I love my Nike running shoes but these tennis shoes are a completely
different fit. As the description says, they are roomier in the mid to front and I can feel
this extra space when I move on the court. I play tennis 3-5 days per week. The shoes
perform alright if I am playing a doubles game that doesn't require much lateral
movement, but the shoes give me blisters on the inside of my arches if I move around
the court much during the match. I have never had this issue with any other shoe. I'm very
disappointed, considering the $100 that I spent.
Comments: Loved this shoe initially but now have blisters on insides of both ankles.
Comments: I have mixed feelings about these. On one hand, they are comfortable right out of the box. No time
needed for break in. I got a half size bigger because of the ankle braces I wear, but could have went with my normal size. I've
only worn these a couple of times on outside courts and they provide pretty decent traction (so far).
On the other hand, they scuff up pretty easily on the toe. I do a lot of movement on the court, but I haven't had shoes scuff up
like this so fast. I'm waiting to see how long they hold up with my style of play. I have the Courtballistec 2.3 and they have held
up better than these. I've had those since December and used them a lot more.
They remind me of how the Zoom Breathe Cage II shoes I had scuffed up from the first use.
Comments: This shoe is very wide in the toe box.
Comments: I got these to play on simulated clay courts. It's true to size, lightweight, and comfortable. I play on
hard courts most of the time and will use these only on the soft courts so they should last a long time. They did not require any
"breaking in" (flexible but stable too) and I am very happy with them.
Comments: I had these and they killed my arches. Maybe I have huge arches, I don't know. The soul is very thin.
They are very uncomfortable.
Comments: Was looking forward to trying this shoe. It is horrible! Very stiff. It runs large and slips in the heel. I
would advise staying with the old one. Just wasted my money.
Comments: This shoe looks great, but is too large in the toe box for me. I had to return them.
Comments: The shoe kind of cuts into the top of my foot right around the location of the Nike logo - and the
tongue on the shoes tends to be irritating - marginal shoe at best considering the price. Runs pretty true to size.
Comments: So far so good with this shoe, felt great right out of the box, lightweight with plenty of cushion and
support. The breathe air II cut into the inside of my ankle causing me to return them bloodstained after 1 month. The new design
on this shoe is such that it does not cut into my ankle.
Comments: It's taken me a while to find a shoe that's lightweight, low to the ground, without
sacrificing stability. I love these shoes and am going to stock up before Nike ruins it. Like they
do with everything in their women's line.
