    Hi! How does this Adidas Response Comp 2 compare in comfort and overall quality with the Yonex 308 and Asics Resolution?

    I ask because I have flat feet and some models like the Nike Vapor does not fit my feet properly as it feels too loose in the back of my foot where the achiles tendon/ ankle is located. On the contrary, Yonex 308 and the Asics Resolution fit well in my feet. Wonder if this Adidas shoe is similar in fit to the 308 or Resolution?

    The Response Comp will feel more like the Resolution. If you have flat feet (so do I), I'd go with the Response Comp or Resolution instead of the Yonex 308.

    Interesting. There are a variety of flat feet apparently.:) I say this because I like the fit of the 308 in my flat feet. But, its good to hear that the Adidas Response are similar to the Resolution and so there are more alternatives to choose from. The only shoes that for my feet is a no no are the Barricades. They feel like those uncomfortable, working shoes that I cant wear.

    This time I will probably go for the 308 as I just returned some Nike Vapors and buying the Response without trying them out is a risk. I already have the red 308s so I will probably buy the black. I say probably as I could change my mind suddenly as there are excellent shoes around like the Resolution 5, Response, New balance, K Swiss, Lotto, etc...:)

    On another note, the Cadence insoles look interesting for people with flat feet. Have you tried them?

    I have flat feet as well and have tried the Cadence insoles. I find them comfortable for my arch, but I personally prefer them in my casual shoes rather than tennis shoes. I like to sit low in my tennis shoes, and because these are so well padded, I sat up higher in my shoes than my preference. They're very comfortable otherwise, and I use them in my non-court shoes.

    Thanks,

    If they are similar to the Resolutions I infer that the Response Comp are very comfortable. Are they as comfortable as the Resolution 5?

    I would appreciate your response. Thanks.

    The Response Comp is a great shoe. I have the bright blue model from a year or two ago, and they are a nice blend of stability and quickness shoe. If you try them, you won't regret it. Wish they had a 6 month guarantee, but I usually kill the cushioning before I wear a hole in the sole.

    Yes I tried the blue model in an Adidas store where I live and was surprised that they felt much more cushioned than the Barricades. But, I did not buy them at that time. Maybe I will gamble with the Response and go with an all Adidas apparel and look like a pro.:)

    I'm always of the mindset that my game may not look good, but I can do my best to look good.

    I've only put the Response Comp shoes on, I have not played in them. Just walking around in them, I'd say they are pretty similar, but it really comes down to how they perform on court, which I haven't experienced with these shoes.
