Not the best looking shoe, but not bad.

I tried it on..wow..perfect fit..perfect comfort..light!!!!

These may be my next gsoats.

Why do they only have 2 colorways?

If they released Monfils USO PE colorway that would instantly make me buy a pair, but yeah the two they have are pretty uninviting...

Don't forget the 6 month warrantee on these shoes. I don't think you could ask for more from a shoe. The big shot has great feel, great performance and great breathability. The durability is a bit of an issue but thats what the 6 month is for.

Yeah, the black colorway is not amazing, but it's not bad.

I need wider shoes, and these fit the bill.

Only issue I read in the TW review was traction..not sure how bad that is.

Best shoes I've had lately, after Nike stopped making the wider shoes available I had to switch and these are the best I've found.

I have not tried them but I have a friend that is very tall and a little overweight and he says those are the best shoes he has wear in a loooong while. By my recommendation he bough a pair of Prince T22, last time I saw him he was trying to sell me the Prince shoes - brand new - on $20 because he wanted to go back to the Big Shots.

Best shoes I have ever worn, only thing is durability but there is a 6 month durability guarantee anyway. Also traction is not the greatest but if you like to slide than thats a plus!

I'm really glad I found these. I have not found tennis shoes that properly fit my feet for years. Nice to hear all this positive feedback.

Are they wider than the Barricades?

Looks little off. but if it is really comfortable with good support and Light weight, it is a Great shoes. Not too many models out there with all 3 ingredients.
Does it have good cushioning ?? I am yet to find a shoe that can match the Power Cushioning of Yonex shoe.

Well it's been over a week with the Big shots and I am liking them a lot. They fit my feet quite well and that is most important. They are also very light which is a nice transition from the Barricades.

Only small thing was that the outer sole was a little noisy now and then at first, but that has gone away.

If you have a wider foot and have to buy a size bigger on Nikes or Adidas, I'd strongly suggest these shoes instead.

I recently purchased a pair of Big Shots - comfortable and a nice switch from the Prince T-22's. I also just received two pairs of Yonex SHT-307 in both Hard and Clay court models. No comparison, the Yonex shows blow away the Big Shots on every level. More comfortable, durable and better fit (for my foot). I think the Big Shots would be better for a wider foot as they seem to have more space in the front of the shoe.

could a nice person that wore both t22 and big shots (and maybe gel resolution 3) tell me how the bigshots/gel r3 fit compared to the t22?

thank you :)

Never wore the Asics but have worn both T22's and Big Shots. Both a very comfortable shoes T22's ready to go right out of box where Big Shots took an hour or so to "break in". T22's a bit more durable (quite a bit actually) and Big Shots wider in the toebox and forefoot. Big shots have a unique material in heel of foot which makes their fit very snug. I have a very normal foot so I felt that the T22's were a slightly better fit for my foot. Still prefer the Yonex SHT-307 over both shoes to be quite honest. Never worn a better shoe on Clay than their clay court specific model. Hope that helps.

Would these have better durability than the B6s?

Yonex fit much more like the T22's little more narrow in forefoot, way more narrow than Big Shots. I dare saw the Yonex are a bit more comfortable as well. T22's breathe very well but I found the mesh front got a little soft as my playing time increased. I easily had 15 pairs of the T22's so obviously they are a solid shoe.
