I play competitively for my college team, go to a few odd tournaments here and there, manage boys tennis, blah blah blah i need pretty good shoes. My currently favored brand is Nike's Court Tradition. They're stylish (yes, i'm vain like that), not bulky, very simply designed, and comfortable. After a year and their subsequent ruination and upon searching the internet for a replacement i discovered that the Court Traditions also come in velcro as well as the classic laces.

I haven't had velcro shoes since the Pokemon ones i had in the third grade. I have never had serious sport shoes with velcro.

Are velcro tennis shoes worth trying? Are laces infinitely superior? Does velcro give you an edge?

Suggestions and recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
