    You guys are great. I ordered an nTour-two, which I had price-matched, at around 4 PM Eastern time. The order was put through, the item price-matched, racket strung, and shipped out all before 9 PM. Great service, both times I called the people were very courteous, very professional. Great job, and thanks so much.

    They would be great if they could get some Asics cross trainers in.

    Because TW don't listen?
    I don't care how long i have to hammer on about this. I WILL BE HEARD.
    I guess you forgot about freedom of speech?
    Runningwarehouse do not stock cross trainers!
    Maybe i should ring them up and see what they say.

    Are the cross-trainers you are looking for tennis specific shoes?

    well tenniswarehouse focus is on tennis not cross trainer. i still understand why u cant just get it somewhere else. tennis warehouse is not the only online store in the world.

    I just want TW to order in the Asics TR range.
    That is all. I don't intend to stir up trouble.
    I'm tired of paying up to $170 for cross trainers when i could get them from TW.

    Sorry Hyperhorse,

    We don't have any plans on bringing in any crosstrainers at this point.

    Spencer, TW.

    Spencer, somehow I don't think HH will accept this as an answer. Would it be possible for TW to specail order HH 5 pairs of these Asics shoes? He seems like the type of person that would really appreciate the kind gesture. Also, if that is possible, would you ask Nike to re-make the Air Resistance from the mid-late 90's? They had that kevlar sole. I would be willing to buy 2 pair (maybe 3 depending on price).

    At this point anyone reading this will consider me a complete fool..HH, you reading this?;)

    One question for you: what do cross trainers have to do with a tennis gear specific website? :confused:

    I'll tell you why.
    If you're serious about your tennis like i am..
    You are going to spend some time in the gym.
    Sure, i can get great shoes cheap off TW.
    Here athletic footwear can cost anywhere between $150-$200+.
    I could get running shoes off runners warehouse, but running shoes dont have as much cushioning as cross trainers.
    And i'd rather keep my tennis shoes for simply that.. playing tennis.
    So that leaves me with another pair or 2 for everyday use, and GOING TO THE GYM.
    When you're doing certain exercises, particularly squats/leg press or anything that puts pressure on your feet..
    That will put more pressure on the shoes and will compress the midsole more.
    Cross trainers are comfortable like running shoes but have more cushioning and lateral stability than runners.
    So to conclude, I would really, REALLY appreciate it from the bottom of my heart if TW would order in cross trainers.
    I'm sure there is a demand for them, particularly from overseas buyers.
    If they get the Asics model i ask for, then i can say right now i will buy 3 or 4 pairs.

    ^^^Don't forget the trade embargo. TW is the only U.S. retailer allowed to ship into Australia. That is why HH has to go through TW. They are the only ones that can help him.

    Man he is way too serious. TW wouldn't buy cross trainers just because YOU want them HH. Sorry that just isn't the way a business works, especially an online business. Keep dreaming and keep complaining it isn't going to get you anywhere with TW.

    HyperHorse, I'm sorry but I think that having running shoes in the gym won't kill you when you're doing squats or something else.

    I just ordered 2 t-shirts to wear to school, and I expect this to be a great transaction too.
