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.

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.

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.
