    Hey everyone, i have been using the cc genius sneakers for about 6 months and I like the ankle support and durability but I am a supinator (wear out the outside of the heels) with high arches and man the genius sneakers really seem to hurt my feet. I am in the market for some new tennis shoes and was considering the dragon barricades or the propulse IIs on sale here on TW but was wondering if those would be good for a supinator and/or if anyone had any recs on sneakers that were good for my supination. I can;t seem to find any info on TW about this for sneakers.

    I got a low arch and I prefer the B7 to the B6...
    I think the OP should go to a good sports/tennis store and try on a lot of different shoes...
    Only way to find out which shoe he really likes...
    But maybe Yonex shoes might be a good choice...
    The arch support is higher (which I hate) and the OP might like...

    I also wear out outside of sole (Heel area).
    Barricade offers one of the best protection in my opinion.
    Unfortunately toe protection is not great though.

    Motion Control =Over Pronator
    Stability= Neutral or Over Pronator
    Cushioning=Supinator

    Find the best cushy ones... I am having a hard time finding the best fit right now. Best shoes I have ever used for this was Yonex...cush plus flexible.
    However the current model 308 is a little snug in the toe-box for me.
    I use the 304 currently and loved the 305.....306 & 307 they went to the narrower fit...

    It seems if I try a shoe that has "stable" in the name they are so stiff and hurt my feet. I need major flex and cush, plus wide toe-box....good luck there!

    Never have tried Lotto, but yes New Balance...I just dont like their feel and sometimes just feel clunky.

    I was looking thru all the reviews, thought may try a couple of these...any comments from anyone.
    These all sort of imply wider toe-box & comfy...But I suppose im looking for flex too.

    New Ascics Gel Resolution 5
    Babolat SFX
    or
    K-Swiss Big Shots (old regular ones)
    Thanks for any input!

    Check out the Lotto Raptors in youtube videos and read customer reviews in TW shop site. They dont seem clunky. Lotto Raptor 3 are on sale right now in TW.

    I have these and I have enjoyed the mobility. I am not sure if it is the narrow toe-box, but I really hurt one of my big toes while running after a drop shot. I stubbed it at the front of the shoe, got a crazy and painful bruise and three months later my toenail is still black.

    Im a mild supinator and I've been playing in adidas sambas with superfeet green insoles. The insoles fixed an issue i was having wearing rod lavers where id have lower back pain all week playing only twice a week. The new issue became after a bit of play in the sambas id get dull pain in my inner shins where the muscle and bone meet. My play time has drastically increased and so has the intensisty and frequency of this pain. Last night i switched in a pair of superfeet orange, doubled up on socks and applied biofreeze, this seemed to dang near eliminate the issue.
    My question is, im looking at switching the sambas to casual duty, and replacing them with barricades for tennis. I dont think i will make use of a warrantied sole, im 180lbs and dont skid, will the barricades+superfeet orange cushion me significantly more, and which model of barricades should i look at?
