What shoe brand is your favorite and you use most often?

05-03-2007, 06:57 AM
Adidas. It used to be Nike but as comfy as they are when you put them (and the really are), the cushioning dies within a week (Breathe Free II and Vapor Speed) and the Vapor Speeds tear apart in less than 3 weeks in my experience. So I switched to the Barricade IV's. They're a bit heavier than the Vapor Speeds, but have a similar glove-like fit and are for more durable than the Breathe Free II's.

New Balance. They fit.

Adidas, best tennis shoe by far.

05-03-2007, 07:35 AM
asics, mi piace il gel resolution

05-03-2007, 08:35 AM
Babolat, surprised?

05-03-2007, 08:40 AM

That is very true, Adidas are the best.

05-03-2007, 08:42 AM
Adidas for tennis. Love em. Then K-Swiss.

Asics for running. Wish they'd do more with their tennis lineup.

New balance makes high quality shoes and I have wide feet (but not superwide). But, what I hate about NB is that there is so much room in the toe, so my toes are swimming around although the midfoot (where I need the extra width) is a good fit. I can never get used to that extra room in the toes.

I'm devoted to the Vapors.

nike all the way

especially the breathe free line

05-03-2007, 04:35 PM

barricades and tirands, yeah, yeh

05-03-2007, 07:34 PM
^^have to agree nike all the way! breathe free II's and III's.

05-03-2007, 08:53 PM
BIV are the best and look coolest, so I voted Adidas.

05-03-2007, 09:24 PM
Tennis: Adidas, contemplating on trying Yonex
Streetwear: Asics Onitsuka, Puma esp the RPT 2 suede(kick @ss looks and wicked comfort)

05-03-2007, 09:27 PM
oscillates and the breathe frees? 2 of the most classic shoes (and shoe lines) of all time. although honorable mention to adidas for the barricades.

05-03-2007, 09:53 PM

Nike sucks. The durability of nicke shoes really sucks.

05-03-2007, 10:56 PM
All my shoes and boots are DR. MARTENS...... And for tennis and basketball shoes- nike

Yep, put down another advocate for the Adidas Barricade IV. Anything else just feels cheap and nasty in comparison.

05-04-2007, 12:17 AM
adidas shoes ae so much more comfortable and durable. i had the australian open series of nike shoes and they were gne so fast

05-04-2007, 06:15 AM
I guess it wasn't a good idea to put Reebok as a category. Anyways Nike, because they have good all-around shoes.

05-04-2007, 06:26 AM
Another vote for Prince

05-04-2007, 07:43 AM
Once in a while, I try other brands like Nike, Fila, Diadora, etc. But I keep coming back to Adidas. I've been happy with every Adidas pair I've owned. Right now, I wear the ClimaCool Booms. Before, I used to wear the Feathers and the Barricades.

I am curious about the Diadora Speed Pros. But mainly because I think they look really cool.

05-04-2007, 10:14 AM
Adidas CC Feather II are my favs, amazing on clay, they wear down kinda quick on hardcourt though.

05-04-2007, 11:59 AM
I had a girl on the street tell me that my Vapor IV's were "so beautiful". She was totally smitten with them.

The Vapors are a work of art people. Smooth as silk.

05-04-2007, 01:16 PM
Reebok used to be my favorite. Sad to see them going down.

Nike! Nike! I'm not separating from a pair I own for 8 years. And not those lousy Adidas giving me blisters. Never again :mad:

05-04-2007, 01:51 PM
the breathe free line has to be the best line yet.
the barricade line however is close behind and on the rise.

05-04-2007, 02:21 PM
asics. nike's are nice, but they wear out too fast, plus too narrow in the toe area.

05-04-2007, 04:15 PM
Nike! Nike! I'm not separating from a pair I own for 8 years. And not those lousy Adidas giving me blisters. Never again :mad:

I had the same problem with blisters in Adidas.

all court originals

Addidas (Barricade IIs) seem to work best for me. Although I wish I could find a local store with a decent selection of tennis sneakers to try on others.

05-05-2007, 07:34 AM
I <3 Barricades

05-05-2007, 11:28 PM
I voted for Nike, because they have Air technology and the best cushioning shoes :mrgreen:

05-06-2007, 02:06 AM
adidas, just love those barricades;)

05-07-2007, 01:17 PM
i'm torn between nike and adidas... i want something that's a combination of my bIV's and BF2's! the fit and the weight of the nikes and the durability and lasting cushion of the adidas... now that would be a sweet shoe!
