Why don't they sell more clay court shoes in the US? Tennis Warehouse Europe has a much better selection. I live in Virginia and the majority of the courts in my area are clay and I know much of the east coast is similar.

Probably not as popular than in like Spain and France just my guess.

There are barely any clay courts in my area. Almost exclusively hard courts. I am on the east coast btw.

I'd guess that at least 80% of the courts in the US are hard. Probably more. I was in my thirties before I played on anything other than a hard court (I grew up in CA), and I started playing when I was 13, so that tells you something. (I live in Maryland now, and our club has indoor Har-Tru and outdoor hard. So I get both.)

Pretty hard to find anything but hard courts here in the *******. Looks like I need to head south & east to find any decent clay. But playing on clay is something I really want to try.

Yeah I know. I use these on clay:http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/adidas_barricade_70_CLAY_WhiteBlack/descpageMSADIDAS-AMB7CWB.html

I really like the Barricade 7 Clay the best.
