Looking for new shoes. Preferably Nike (we have a half-off discount) and under 150$. I want shoes that will be durable (will last about a year or so) and have good stability. Weight of shoes does not matter too much. I like colorful shoes! The only shoes that I've had were New Balance (515's I think)

What about the Lunar Vapors? The reviews say that it is a very good shoe, and I can get it at almost 1/3 of the cost at $42

Yes, both are good shoes but the 2.3's are no doubt better, especialy if weight is not a factor....the only thing really going for the vapors in that head to head is the weight differential

if you like the lime ones go for it, id stay with the vapors or eventhe nike zoom breathe 2k10 . they have more regular colors that could actually match which stuff when you dont wear lime shirts all the time

I think the beauty of the Lime 2.3's is that you wear them almost on purpose not to match.....you know that you wont be matching any way (who is honestly going to fool around in an all lime/black nadal fan boy outfit) so you just put on any pair of shorts and a white practice T and bam.....there you go. No thinking about any outfit, just let the shoes do the talking

If you want long lasting shoes, then go for the courtballistecs. IF the colors are too drastic for you, they have a nice simple colorway in grey and white. Hope this helps, ya

i found that the yellow courtballistics 1.3 lasted longer than normal and were extremely comfortable

Thanks for the recommendations guys. Is it better for shoes to be tight or a bit loose?

It is better to have you shoes fit snug/tight. They will loosen and break in over time so it is better to get the snug in the first place.

When going to buy tennis shoes, it is correct to allow a thumb like width at the toe side of the shoe? or is it better to buy a tight fit to your feet shoes?

It use to be better to have a snug fit because the leather grain they used would give and stretch somewhat. But some of the new shoes are plasticy or meshy and I'm not sure they will give at all or they will give too much.

I want to buy shoes online. Can you tell me what companies come in smaller sizes or bigger sizes relative to each other?
