I bought some Nike Air Monarchs and they are the most comfortable athletic shoe I've tried so far. It was a revelation the first time I tried them on.

As far as athletic performance, they do leave something to be desired. The shoes are very flat and a little wide, and so they feel a little sluggish in acceleration. I've got another pair of shoes, which are slightly elevated at the heel and a bit narrower, and I feel like I can "take off" from stop a little bit quicker.

So what shoe out there is going to max out my comfort AND my performance? Does such an animal exist? If so, I want it!

Thank you for the rec. At $120. they are a bit pricey.

How are they compared to the 2.1's? Those are only $70. Is comfort level comparable to the 2.3 (I'm assuming the 2.1's will be heavier)?

Also, what about the Prince T22?

So, I guess I am comparing the Nike 2.3, Nike 2.1 and Prince T22 for comfort and performance.

well.. your talking about high performance. then its cb2.3, the 2.1 is a low-end verison. You can get the older colors of cb2.3 at tennis-warehouse sale shoes selection.

You can't really find a good answer to that question by searching the web... The 2.3s are fine shoes but... I still suggest that you go to a place where you can actually try those bad boys before buying them

Prince T22's. Most comfortable tennis shoe on the planet.

Where's Consumer Reports when you need 'em?!?

Is this summary correct?

1. Nike 2.3: the best of the best for BOTH comfort and performance.
2. Prince T22: a strong runner-up.

3. Nike 2.1: an also-ran.

Correct? Direct comparisons between Nike 2.3 and Prince T welcome.

Hi,

I terms of snug slipper comfort the 2.3's can't be beat. But I have a custom pair of the new Barricade 6's and those are wildly light and comfortable too. Not quite as narrow. You hardly feel like they're on your feet.

I totally agree. First tennis shoe in years that was comfortable for me right out of the box. I normally need several weeks to break a shoe in before it's right for me.
