You play on clay, so durability guarantee is not very important. Herringbone outsole is best for clay, but other outsoles can work as well.
You should try them on, and ask about the shoe on tt. :)
Make sure it does not hurt your foot and the shoe is enough comfortable. If you have wide foot, do not buy narrow shoes.

i have read some forums and i have found below advices:
- shoes have to be comfortable;
- they have to be flexible
- between top of shoes and your fingers have to be 5 mm distance to avoid pain.

Do you agree with this

Yes I agree.

If your looking for a very comfortable shoe and your feet are not overly wide, I would recommend the Nike Courtballistec. Very good cushioning and the inside feels really soft, almost like there is cushioning lining the sides and top of the shoe.

I wear a 13 or 14 Wide, so whatever is in stock in 13 or 14 Wide usually ends up being my perfect shoe......:)
