Re: Tennis shoes

Hi guys and gals, couldn't make a new thread for some reason so i have to post here

I know nothing about tennis and trying to buy a pair of tennis shoes for my friend who just got into tennis a couple of month ago. Here are the requirements.
Size = 5
Budget = $50-100
Color = pink/red or something flashy.
She plays 1-2 times a week now and about 2-3 hours each time. She has a pair of tennis shoes but always complain that they are ugly (hence the birthday present idea). I found a pair that suits my needs but this pair seems to have some bad reviews. What do you guys think? Would the durability really become an issue since she’s not that much a hardcore player?

Thanks for your help!

Agreed, i have had my pair for years (They are the male version of what Dinara wore ) and they are comfortable, and durable

I played with the New Balance 851's and the folks a Tennis Warehouse mentioned they play similary, ergo, the asics were my next choice since NB stopped making the 851.

Re: Tennis shoes

Is tennis shoe overrated? I play with my running shoes all the time and don't have any problem with them.

No it's not over rated.

Tennis shoes are made for movement in all directions and running shoes are made for forward movement.

I feel faster in the tennis shoes for sure.

Re: Tennis shoes

I just got a pair of Men's Lacoste Repel 2 http://www.midwestsports.com/lacoste...w#.Uu-sEnnO8YU

They seems to have great traction on indoor courts and are very comfy. I can't wait to try them out on the outdoor courts come Spring/Summer

Re: Tennis shoes

Hey guys, I have a question regarding the size conversion from women's to men's tennis shoes. I want to buy my shoes online, but I find that the selections and designs for women are really limited, so I want to buy men's shoes. The problem is that I'm not sure if the conversion is -1.5 or -2 from the women's sizing. I've searched online and a lot of people are mentioning either 1.5 or 2. I've tried going to my local store to see if I could fit in US/CA size 6 for men (I'm 7.5 in US/CA for women), but they don't offer anything lower than a size 7. I wanted to ask around to make sure before I attempt to order online because the return process can be difficult and inconvenient.
