Okay so i need new tennis shoes. I mostly play on claycourts.
I hesitate between the shoes mentioned below. I also mentioned what i think are the pros and the cons.
I hope you could give me some reasons why to buy a particular shoe. I want to buy 2 or 3 pairs of shoes.
I also added a poll, so you can vote for one or two particular shoe(s).
Please also give reason why you voted for this(those) shoe(s).

Where's the Feather II? 'Cause that is one insanely good shoe on clay. Lightweight, great ventilation, good cushioning. It's not terribly expensive (70$), either

Ah crap, I voted BF2 but they are HORRIBLE on clay. I use the BF on hard courts and animos on clay. The animos are the best clay shoe I have ever owned.

The Breathe Free II's are the amazing. I've tried different barricades, but the Breathe Free II's are lighter and more breathable and are just about as durable as the barricades. I just hope the cage is an improvement on theis design!
