    Looking for the best possible red clay shoes available.
    Not too many choices...? What do you wear?

    Wilson Trance. Completely flat outsole with full herringbone tread.

    if you are not going to slide into your shots then buy grass court shoes. They will give you much better grip than any herringbone tread 'clay' court shoe.

    Second that. Was pleasantly surprised because the Gel Icons I had before them were less than ideal on clay.

    I heard babolat makes shoes that are like the all courts except for clay, like pure clay or something. Its on their website, but TW doesn't carry them.
