I tried them on, didn't like them very much at all. The fit was too narrow for me. Regardless of that though, they felt stiff and the material was uncomfortable. The rear heel cushion felt ok, nothing special. I think they do look bad ***, but they just weren't the cost for how uncomfortable they were. They need to put a lot more effort into the workmanship on the inside of the shoe.

I think they are really comfortable...dunno, maybe u just had the wrong size;)?
I got the clay version from a internet shop in Germany, cuz all we have is clay courts outside....inside we play on carpet!

Even the Lotto players don't like them too much. The plastic at the bottoms of the shoes can lead to rollovers. Given their weight, there are much better alternatives out there.

I played 2 matches in em now and I must say they feel good and there were no possible rollovers or anything...from my point of view I can highly recommend them!

They do look great, but I've been using Lotto shoes for about 3 years, and honestly think these are the worsts. I'm going to stick with my Revenge's which are half the cost and great shoes. I would go ahead and dish out for B IV at this price.

Yeah, I am going to pick up 2 or 3 more pairs before the end of summer just incase they discontinue them. They look just like the more expensive shoes, and IMO play the same if not better than them. All in all, the greatest shoes for the dollar.

Has anyone tried the Lotto ATP Legend II Speed shoes? If so, how do they compare to the Revenge's?

Thanks

My friend has them and Revenges, I can ask him tomorrow.

I personally haven't tried them. Sorry.

I'll get him to write down the differences and everything tomorrow and get it up ASAP.

kk..........

He said, the revenges definitly had more stability. The raptors played lighter, and were easier to change direction in. Durability wise, they seem equal.......he's only had the raptors for 2 weeks. He also said that raptors were tons better on clay than the revenges.

If you have any other questions I can ask him.

Thanks, but I was actually asking about a comparison between the Revenge and the Lotto ATP Legend II Speed, not the Raptors, which I'm not really interested in at all.

Has your friend also worn the ATP Legend II Speed shoes?

Oh no........sorry =[


I completely screwed up that one, my bad.

My USTA coach had the original legend's, but he wears Barricades now.

I probably like the raptors that much cuz I got the clay version and only play them on clay
