    Currently have the Prince T22 and am looking for a lower to the ground shoe that will fit my wide feet with orthotics that excels on clay. I am looking at the Babolat SFX or the Head Speed Pro Lite. Has anyone tried these shoes?

    Both look good for clay. I wonder which has better cushioning.

    Head Speed Pro Lite by far. Low to the ground and superb stability. Durability is superb, I got twice as long as the Babolat Propulse 3 and even longer than the Barricade 6.0's I have tried. Comfort is fantastic, even as low to the ground as they are, I have used them for 2-7 mile runs with no issue. Extraordinary comfort. Plus....you can usually find on 'the bay' for a ridiculous price.

    I have been using the SFX's on red clay since the spring and love them - they did just as well on har tru. Neve liked the HEAD shoes - they just neve fit right, same for the T22's. I swap out between the Vapor 9's, adizero II's and the SFX's.

    The Head Speed Pro Lite shoes fit wider ...but yes, the other Head shoes do not have this fit and are narrower.
