    Hi All,

    I would appreciate your opinions on the performance of Adidas adizero Feather II /all court, especially in terms of traction on the clay court.

    My question is caused by the type of the outsole - it seems a very shallow and closed tread pattern - only suitable for hard court.

    I play 90% of the time on clay, and considering that fact, do I have to look only the clay version, or “all court” also provides good performance?

    Thank you in advance ...

    Totally depends on your weight and what type of clay you play on. If you play on the red euro-clay used south of Sweden and throughout of europe, then yes, they are to slippery and not enough bite for clay, but if you play on Har-tru or brown, more rough clay, its no problem

    Yes ... You acknowledge my concerns. I play on European red clay. I have problems whenever I use an older pair of shoes that are worn out and no longer as a rubber (more like plastic) soles. As for my weight, I weigh 66 kg. 176 cm in height

    Thank you!

    There's a version of these shoes available on TW-E (and several other German based online stores) with a claycourt- outsole (herringbone).

    TWE does not offer clay version of these shoes yet.
    I hope, if we can motivate them and ask insistently for their supply, surely I'll order clay version of these shoes from TWE.

    Thank you!

    My bad, sorry, I thought I bought mine from TWE. In fact it was another German online store.

    If it helps, just translate "cellar" into German, add the word "-sports.de" to it and there you go. You'll find the store...

    Thanks for the offer, but I have a "very good experience" in business with Keller ...
