I can only vouch for the Cage I shoes so far! They play fine on the Melbourne claycourts. They are comfy for my wide feet and light enough to move around fast. In addition, they grip the court well and still let you slide. In fact, the XDR and modified herringbone tread have lasted longer than the nikes i used which had DRC and standard herringbone tread which were used on the oscillates and air challenges (NB non clay versions)!

By the way, the clay is fast and pebble-like here in Melb where we call it en tout cas! That's essentially a fancy name for our version of clay because we were so tight a$%e that we could not afford the real stuff. On top of this, alot of these type of courts are not done well here so they really really really suck with the %^&* bounce!

Happy hitting!
