    I guarantee barricades or the breathe free line will be more durable on the tennis court than basketball shoes

    You are right
    Vessels are you serious. if you play on clay your toast. if you play on hard court your toast. you claim to be a good player (state contender) and your actually asking this question? Stop watching basketball for a second and go look at any really good tennis player you will find shoes like those shocks on them when they are in the gym, but nowhere near a tennis court.

    If wearing basketball shoes works for u due to the ankle protection.. Then it works for you...
    I guess not too many people knew that a certain Andrew Illie wore Air Jordans when he didnt have any endorsement contracts...

    I would definitely not wear basketball shoes for tennis. Although I guess they are better for you than running.

    Regardless, those shoes are BALLER:)

    Legend! Imagine you were his opponent at some clay-court challenger in like the deepest darkest parts of Eastern Europe... you're sitting down by the court waiting for your opponent and then you see a chubby little Romanian with a red bandanna wrapped around his head, baggy clothes and Air Jordans!

    Basketball shoes is all I have. And I have never had any problem.
    They have a nice gripping for hardcourts, and they don't bother on clay either :)

    hahahaha me too.

    I personally find they are a bit heavy. but it doesn't matter to me as my skills aren't good enough for a $100 pair of tennis shoes yet. :grin:
