I've been looking around, and I can't seem to find any currant production Nike grass court shoes. My best friend has a grass court at his house and it's about ready to open for the season, and I want to get some grass shoes since I'll be playing there almost daily. Are there any in production and I just can't find them, or do I need to look for another brand?

I don't know, but I used to see a lot of Vapor VI grass courts on the bay last year. You might want to check there - might find a deal.

Well, grass court shoes aren't exactly common at the outlets. Your best bet would be paying retail for some 2k11 Id's. If you so concerned about the price then just wear some regular tennis shoes.

I got these on the bay for around $55 like 3 years ago. I see Vapor V and Vapor VI grass court shoes pop up on the bay from time to time. What size do you wear?

^^^they look imppecable:cool:. I bought the 1.3 CB's from the big acution site for around the $69 range just for grins. I've played on european clay but NEVER on grass.

I wear size 10. I don't want to wear hard court shoes and potentially damage the court more than I should. I'll keep looking on the bay. Thanks for all the replies!

Grass court shoes (with nubs) are actually made for traction so you don't slip on the slick grass surface not so that you don't damage it. The regular vapor sole would more likely save the grass surface than the nubs of a true grass court shoe. Some places actually ban grass nubs for this reason. Anyway, good luck.

Thanks! They haven't ever been played in so that's why they look so good LOL. Although I'm going to Hawaii this summer so I'm hoping to finally try them out!
