Does anyone use this shoe on a regular basis? I got one for a good price and when I tried to play with them, I found out why they were on clearance........ so painful!!!!


If anyone has played with them or uses them on a regular basis, how long does it take to break in?

give it 5 or 6 good hitting sessions.....and then they will hold your foot like no other

It's kinda ironic that you are complainig about the pain of these shoes and your name is "Bring_da_pain." Just thought that was funny.

Anyways, I have had the same exact problem as you. I actually bought two pairs, and I wore the first twice and never wore them again. I tried it once and had to take them off. And the second time was just because I only wore them once and figured that I'd have to get used to them somehow, but the pain was too much. They are a very cool looking shoe, and I think that's where they got the idea for the Breathe Free's. I still have them, in black, and maybe some day I'll take'em out again, but for now, forget it! But I heard the same thing, wear them a few times and then they'll feel unbelievable. Well, just getting past the first two times is almost too painful to even try any more times. Well, good luck. I still have two brand new pairs. Later

I actually used the AZ Courtposite for a while. Hang in there buddy, it will be painful for a while...don't worry though, that's just your foot molding to fit the shoe (yes your foot molds to the shoe :wink: ). After the molding process is over, the shoe really does fit like a glove and it is lightweight so you can run like the wind in those bad boys. However, as with most "cool looking" Nike shoes, the AZ Courtposites didn't last me long at all. I think they lasted like 3-4 months before I wore the rubber down to pretty much nothing.

Thanks for the comments people! Anton785, I know what you mean about the glove like fit, that's the nike "posite" technology in action. I think my pain is more due to the high arch. Does the shoe suit your foot type (pronated? supinated?). I think my arches are more neutral which is why it hurts more.

Well, I guess I have pretty high arches, but I know exactly what you are referring to in the shoe. The like "bump" thing inside the shoe near the inside of the foot is quite annoying and it must be made for people with really high arches because it still annoyed the crap out of me for a while. As for pronated, supinated...you have to clarify for me because ya lost me there. Seriously though, just bear with it and eventually you will have a positive experience.
