i don't really know, i'm 6'4 and 205, so not as big but still big, and the barricades didn't fit my feet well and wilson prince and babolat don't make size 15s, or at least not in the shoes i wanted, so right now i'm using Nike Lunar Vapor 8 Tour, but i haven't had them long so am sceptical about the durability, although they feel great. I personally would try the Wilson Tour Vision, that's what my coach recommended to me.

me being 6'5 and 250 I know exactly what you mean. I send shoes back for guarantees like theyre the Nike Vapors! I usually go through the Drag-on or adi-tuff first though. I slide on all surfaces! lol :)
