    Anyone have any input on a shoe that is the most similar to the 2k12? The new Cages are a bit too heavy for me. I want a shoe that feels incredibly fast. Durability is not an issue.

    I wear both the 2k12 and my ultimate favorite: the Vapor 9.

    Try it, you'll love it!

    If durability is not an issue, the Vapors are the way to go!

    If you aren't brand specific, you could try the Asics Gel Res 5s...a favorite amongst MANY of our playtesters because they are durable and fast. And then again, the even faster version would be the Asics Solution Speed, but again, won't be as durable.

    Why would anyone want to buy a pair of tennis shoes that last less than 3 months? Heck, there's feedback on TW stating that some Vapors last less than a few weeks !

    I can't believe Nike can get away with scamming people like this.

    The vapor last me a year before I see the sole. I played with it in many tournament. The vapor doesn't necessarily going to be gone in 3 months. Its a matter of the person wearing then

    Back on topic, I used to wear the 2ks series since the 2k10s. Michelle pretty much said it. Vapors or the gel speeds is your best bet if your looking for a shoe that performs like the 2k12s

    Vapors. They're so comfortable and surprisingly durable. In my case my Vapors lasted longer than my 2K12s. And I played more tennis in the Vapors than the 2Ks.
