    In my opinion they are a lower quality feather

    They're actually a hard court version of the feather, as the feather is intended for clay courts (you can tell from the sole).

    Can you wear them on clay courts though? And would you recomend them? And are they okay for slightly wider feet?

    I just bought them and have only played them on hard courts thus far and they were quite good. Too soon to tell on wear. I would not recommend them for wide feet as they are snug on my mildly narrow feet.

    I've got a clay court match tonight, I'll report back after that.

    Well I like the shoes on clay as well. They are very light and comfortable. They have good but not great grip, but they were good enough for me to blow the other guy off the court (6-0, 6-1 and it wasn't that close) and I tracked down a ton of balls which isn't unusual, but I think I got to them a step sooner.

    CC Boom IIs lasted approx 6 weeks for me. I play on hard courts daily anywhere from 2-4 hours on weekdays and 6-7 hours on weekends.

    Ventilation was GREAT. Cushioning was improved by replacing the insoles and also wearing ThorLos. Slight rolling. Aside from the normal wear spots on the outsole, I also noted the upper separating from the lower along the inner side seam (usually where it's glued).

    FYI, I've also tried BIIs, BIIIs, and my current shoe for tourneys-- BIVs. I've tried Feathers, Clima Cools, and the (ugh) Tirand.

    I may just go back to the BIIs as practice shoes.

    My god. I'm lucky if I get in 4-6 hours/week. If they lasted 6 weeks at that rate, they might just last me a lifetime!

    I just wore these shoes for the first time. After being a long-time Feather wearer, I decided to switch because I was tired of being scared to death of twisting my ankle. Anyway, the CC Booms are great. I"m very happy with them. They feel really light, very well ventilated, and most importantly, *stable*. I played on a hard court today, not once did I have any trepidation about my lateral movement on the court.

    And the price is really great. Since today was my 1st time wearing them, I can't comment on durability yet, but I hope these last me a while..

    4.5 player here...

    If it's good enough for Querrey, it's good enough for me.

    Forzainter,

    I was a corporatron for a while, primarily in finance. After several years of increasingly severe health problems (in my 20s!), I "lifestyled out" and deliberately slowed down. Left the City, moved to warmer climes and perpetual sunshine.

    For now, I consult internationally with startups and problematic companies. Since I'm on my own, I structure my schedule to allow for my tennis passion yet address my clients. I'm lucky.

    One thing I've learned: life's short and it's one thing to build the house and garden, quite another to live in it and smell the roses.

    Oh, BTW, just finished on the CC Boom 2s and their breathability was better than the original Booms.

    I threw mine out yesterday. I play about 3-4 hours a week, on hard courts mostly and so my pair lasted about 4 months. Not the best durability time period, but these shoes are relatively inexpensive, and really did feel great. I like these much better than any of the feathers for hard courts.

    I have a pair in black, they are narrow but good ventilation and comfort. I just got mine about week ago and I will be rotating these with other shoes. I will make these black pair my version of Federer's all black ensemble.

    rabidcow is correct, though. They're a "takedown" from the feather, not just an equal hardcourt version.
