    Hey all.

    My tennis club has one pair of Court Ballistec 2.3 in my size for a reduced price of $70 (white and grey). I've never worn Ballistec's before and was wondering whether they're worth the price, assuming they feel good walking around the club. I know they have the 6-month guarantee which is great! Although I wonder whether I'll be able to claim it on such an old model.

    I've worn:
    Nike Breath 2k11s (wear out pretty quickly)
    Prince T22s
    Asics Gel Resolution 4 (current shoes).

    Ballistec 2.3 for $70. Good?

    Yes! Get them. They're a steal for $70. Though I don't think the 6-month durability guarantee would work because they're more than 2 years old.

    Ok. I'll check them out to see how they feel on. I don't expect to claim the 6 month guarantee, I just like that they should last longer than my 2k11s.

    CB 2.3 was the best among other CB line in my opinion.
    Comfortable and durable.
    Ask for more discount since you can't claim warranty. Probably the shop wants to get rid of it too ^_^ I remember that white and grey was least popular colors.
    $60 even $55 is about right haha.

    Yeah, this would be my first pair of white tennis shoes. I don't mind the white/grey simply because they don't have any neon ;)

    Tried the shoes on today, but they were a bit small., unfortunately The cushioning felt great thought! I'm partial to a bootie style tongue, I designed one into my 2k11s when I ordered them from NikeID (see link in the above post).

    10, but I couldn't find a size on the tongue, only on the box.
