View Full Version : Vapor IV on clay?

Has anyone had experience with Vapor IV's on clay? I play mainly hard court during the summer and know they're great on that but I do play a fair share on clay as well.

i hav playd on all the stuff close to clay and it doesn't hold up that well. so dam slippery its crazy but i'm in Australia and because of drought the courts are more dry than usual so that doesn't help

Yes I have played about 20 hours wih Vapor 4's on clay. Lots of traction, shoe feels planted and overall no complaints.

I like the shoe that much and I previously used Barricade 4's...

thanks for the input! I know the the BIV's are superior in terms of durability and stability so I decided to go with those. I'll probably get the Vapors after they've been out a while long and people start to coment on the durability of the shoe.

the vapor 4's wear out too quickly for its price IMO

I've had no problems with the 4's on clay, they have a fairly wide tread.

How many hours a week do you guys play? You must drag your feet a lot or slide to wear them out that quick.
