Depends what you're looking for, but you can probably find it with Adidas:
Barricade IV - Durability shoe. Heavier than most.
Boom II - Lightweight shoe. Won't last very long if you are a hardcore runner.
Many more options, those are just the two main players' type of shoes.

$150? you can get pretty much whatever you want then. i suggest new balance CT1002. the only issue i dont like about it is that it seems too durable haha, ie. not as much cushining as i like. but thats just me.

Any of the Barricades.

I play with the Vapor IIIs, theyre mediocre-give me blisters at times on my feet, and the outsoles are not durable at all-lose traction in like a week. not that comfortable either.
I've heard great things about the vapor IVs though. Barricades are pretty heavy, not really my cup of tea so I cant compare

If anyone is wondering, 150 Canadian is about 135 USD--enough to get any shoe on TW...I think :confused: ;)

Barricades are nice. I personally like II and IV.

Recently, i bought the Nike Air Max Breathe Cage shoes. I play on all surfaces and this is a terrific all surface shoe and you should have no problems with it on hardcourt. Nadal wears them as well.
You should go with the Adidas Barricades IV....
The best shoe made ever!!!! ;)

I like the Prince T-10 shoes, I always use w/ 'sole' insoles and heel cushions.
I play 3-4 a week 3 hours per session. I hv previously used B2 and B3 (still hv few new pairs B3). T-10 is a very tough stable shoe and cushions impact well. Sizing is similar to the B2 w/ slightly more width, in the forefoot area.
