    I have medium arch and medium width. (i think) and i tend to slide around like nadal or monfils (this tears holes on the inside part of the left shoe)

    I just need some opinions for which shoe I should buy.

    for one thing- if you have wide feet than the CB 3.3 is a no-no

    try the bigshots- six month garuntee and a wide fit shoe

    gotta get the Gel Resolution 3. they are a bit higher off the ground when you first get them but after a day or two they are the best shoes on earth. comfortable, light and durable

    For the look, Adidas is hands down ugliest, IMHO.

    Agreed, 3.3's hurt my feet like crazy on the outsides (most likely due to them being too narrow.) I've been very impressed with my pair of bigshots, had them for a month and they're lasting me well on the outsoles, they're comfortable, they have good stability and also lightweight.

    I think they have the best looks of the ones the OP mentioned.

    I recently bought a pair of gel resolution 3's. Easily the most comfortable shoes i've worn for anything.

    I wish the gel reso 3's had a more appealing look.. I'm not too big on yellow.
