I've been wearing the Nike Zoom Vapor line for a long time now. I find them extremely comfortable. The durability is not great but the comfort is really worth it for me.

I tried to use the Nike CourtBallistec but it fit wrong on my feet and it was actually painful for me to be in them. I also tried to use the Babolat Propulse but the back strap broke on my first time wearing.





I just ordered the somewhat new Nike Lunar Ballistec in this colorway:



I've heard a lot of great things from this shoe but I really didn't like the $165 price tag but I saw them on sale on Tennis Warehouse $99 so I HAD to buy them. I'm guessing they had to go on sale because not a lot of men weren't buying into the pink colour but I don't care. I'm very excited to try them! Does anyone have any experience with this shoe?

What shoes do you guys wear?

So..... The fit was TERRIBLE. Too narrow for my feet. But that's my problem though, not the shoes. It was so painful to run around in it. I told my friend and he told me to use a parallel lacing pattern and it fixed everything!!! Now it's perfect and it feels great. Really nice shoe!

I used to wear regular Nike trainers (Lunar Eclipse), but found that I needed more stability on the sides than regular shoes can offer, as I was coming over the sole. Jogging shoes wear out really quickly playing tennis too.

These are my first ever tennis shoes that I got just a few weeks ago and I LOVE them. It's so much easier to push off and change directions in proper tennis shoes.

Diadora S. Ace Tennis Shoe


I also had a New Balance voucher so purchased another pair which haven't been shipped yet. I find them a bit ugly, but there were limited options, so...

Currently Babolat Propulse 4 for clay. Very solidly built. Too sticky to use on hard courts, but perfect for clay. The Babolat V-Pro 2, by comparison, I really didn't like. They got very loose and unusable within 4 months.

Only Rafa shoes of course. His 2010 Courtballistec 2.3 is my favorite of them.

Yeah even I am an armature tennis player and like to wear Adidas runners for that. These are quite good so I don’t have any need to purchase new shoes for that. Even I like to wear these for my work outs along with my alo yoga pants and tank tops which give me very comfy and cool looks!
