I love these shoes as general gym shoes or walk about town shoes.

But for athletic tennis, they get no love.

They are very wide, sit a bit too high, and generally feel clunky and slow.

It's almost like I'm walking in snow with snowshoes: slow trudging steps.

They are just really slow to react when tennis is all about quick reactions and cuts.

For street wear, they're great, but now I'm back to square one for tennis shoes.

I may have to spring for Prince t22's in a month or two, even though they are relatively pricey.

Rule #1 for me:
-Never wear any athletic shoes for casual wear.
Rule #2:
-Tennis shoes are MADE for tennis, and ONLY tennis shoes can be used to PLAY tennis.
Rule #3:
-Running/training shoes do work at a degree, but do not help in the long run. Either replace them within a month, or wear out the soles within 2 weeks.
Rule #4:
-Nike FTW.

In other words, thumbs down too.

Just a recommendation, you should really try to find a pair of Vapor VI. Very great tennis shoe, and great looks!
