    Fila Alfa II. No break-in, great cushioning, low price and a 6 month sole guarantee. I dare you to wear them out in 6 months. The Barricades may be a bit better, but not 40% better (per pricing).

    The Barricades are too heavy. I need something at around 11 oz. but with stiff leather for support; some arch support; padding on ball of foot.

    I concur. A great shoe at a great price. I have the Wimbledon version. Written elsewhere about this shoe. Superior to the three different Nikes I have tried.

    Probably getting ready to release a new version. Fila seems to do that every fall.

    Just scored a couple pair of ASICS Res 2s (black) on A-zon for 74 bucks. Best price I've ever seen for Res 2s.

    Head Speed Pro. Light, fast, breathable, ultra-cushioned – with a six-month warranty. The Speed Pro shoes seem to combine the lightness, speed and breathability of Nike's legendary Breathe Free II, but Head Speed Pros have even better forefoot cushioning.
