i'm leaning towards these models. tell me what you think and why. please :) or if there's another suggestion.

- adidas barricade 3
- lotto atp raptor 2
- adidas a3 prevail
- wilson open
- nike airmax breathe 3

you'll notice that all of these are on the tw discount section and are under $80. so if you're going to make another suggestion please keep price in mind :)

Among those you listed, I've only tried Barricade 3. It feels a bit more stable, a bit more bulkier (especially the heel section) as well as heavier than Barricade 2. That's why I switched to Barricade 2.

The Barricade 3s are beefy tennis shoes. They're heavy compared to everything else I've worn! They were very durable, though! I prefer the Nike Breathe line of tennis shoes... right now I'm sportin' the Nike Breathe Cage... but my favorite are the Breathe 3s. I also really like the Nike Vapor S2s... which they don't make anymore.
