View Full Version : New Balance CT 1200

Just a few days ago I purchased the New Balance CT 1200's. I play every day for at least 2 hours, and play competitively. I am a big guy, and I was wondering if anyone has had trouble with the air bubble popping in the back. I know I have only had them for a few days but when I had the Nike Air Zoom Vapor Speed's they popped. So please please please, if you have purchased these, let me know!

You mean the CT 1002s?

I have played tennis for two hours using the new CT1200s. Excellent mobility, cushioning, and stability. Comfort straight out of the box. Best pair of tennis shoes I ever owned. IMO NB has designed a great shoe that does everything well above average. No issues with anything so far.

I agree, these are great shoes. Today was my first competitive match playing with them, and at first they were a bit odd for me (being I was used to the free and less supportive Feather II) but once I got into the swing of the game they felt great. I really enjoyed playing with them.

Yeah i am interested in getting a pair because my NB 780 shoes are coming to an end! The 780s were a good shoe! However, they did not give a comfy ride in the forefoot! The new 781 looks almost the same but it looks like NB cut out alot of the tech from the 780s and are trying to flog them off as the same thing. BY the way, without alot of the 780 stuff, they are still the about same weight and are the same price when the 780 came out!

Do the 1200s feel low to the ground?

Also, i get the impression you get the feeling of forgetting about the weight during matchplay.

I used to wear the NB 780 last year. The forefoot area felt a little stiff and hard. Otherwise its a good shoe.

I have now played 4 hours of tennis in the NB 1200 (did not notice I was playing new shoes during play). The NB 1200 do not feel low to ground, but it is a very nice cushioned ride. YMMV

How is the durability?

I think I heard that if they do pop it's like a defect and could possibly get a new pair. I had that problem with skating shoes and I had them replaced.
