hi everyone! I'm a newbie!
i have been using nike air court mo III for 5 months and it's all
worn out lol i bought this shoes without much knowledge when i didn't know
Much about tennis and importance of equipments.

I have wide feet and that's why i chose size 10 instead of 9.5 with air court.
i'm thinking btw nike court ballistec 2.3 or any other babolat shoes.
i was wondering how nike cb 2.3 would fit my feet. I can't try them because i live in
reno nv which is relatively small cityband none of shoes store has one.

So please give me advice on those shoes and how would they fit!
and also i run and drag a lot! So please tell me which one is durable!

Thank you all

if you have wide feet than you should stay away from the cb2.3

I love the cb2.3, but even in a medium width foot like mine it's bordering on too narrow. Check out the Nike Breathe 2K10. It's a bit wider. Not as durable but wider. I love the 2K10s... very light, great performance shoe. Not quite as supportive/cushy as the 2.3 but much nicer for a match. My feet don't get tired as fast!

order whether prince t22 or fila alfa. both have wider forfoot, are well cushioned (better than nike or adidas) and durable (fila with guarantee)

check also the tw-reviews in the tw-shop

Most recs for wide feet are the Prince mentioned above or the T9s and Barricades. I have wide feet and was planning on trying the newish Head Speed Pros after reading up on them but ended up w/ a pair of discounted New Balance 804 bought locally. I think they are quite comfortable and grip pretty well...they might ride a bit higher than the Barricades, but I've had no rolling issues. I've had the Barricade 5s and the Prince T9s. The Barricades are very solid on court and fit fairly well width-wise...especially after breaking in. Forefoot cushion could be better IMHO. Hard court grip is outstanding. The T9s are quite wide and roomy but I had some court slippage issues with them. I use Superfeet Orange inserts in all my shoes. The Barricades and NB 804s have some arch support stock but the T9s have almost none without inserts.
