    Subject says it all...I'm not looking for a tall sneaker, just something that would provide all around support. I've been wearing the air oscillates forever, and I think it's time for a change. Would like to stay in the Nike family, but definitely open to other suggestions. Thanks!

    Seems like something like the Barricades or Courtballistecs would be good.

    Yonex 308 is a great mix of comfort and support.

    off topic a bit, but do you have orthodics?

    this is even further off topic but have you seen a chiropractor? i started seeing a new chiro over a month ago who's been adjusting my knees and since then i've bailed on my own "tall sneakers" and i've been hitting in my lowcut adidas cc boom (prolly not what you're looking for btw) without rolling an ankle.

    I recently started wearing superfeet. And yes, recently started seeing a chiropractor. He is treating me for an old ankle "soft tissue" injury.

    In addition to shoes with good lateral support, I highly recommend ASO ankle supports. This style of support approximates a good sports tape job and is very adjustable.

    Superfeet are good, but check to see if your insurance covers custom orthotics.

    Babolat Propulse 3 has great ankle support especially with the ankle strap.
