Would these hi-tops be suitable to play in?

Some shoes like this http://www.sell-christian-louboutin....36--40--46.jpg for example.

Just I am trying to get some new shoes to play in and tried some on, thinking they were comfortable and I felt alot of support for my ankles. I just fear if I buy them they might affect my movement badly, as sliding and quick stepping is a big part of my game. Do you think hi-tops would be flexible to play in?

Those old-school basketball shoes are great for ankle support, but they are also H-E-A-V-Y. You'd be better off buying high-tops that are made specifically for tennis, like these:

I "peaked" in equal shoes. I was injury prone, when I was younger, especially my ankles were often injured. When I wore them, I only had some wrist troubles, but could play two full summers.
