    Hello all fellow forum members,

    The other day I was playing on hard court with the 2.3's and on certain running shots, I wouldn't be able to stop and I would just end up sliding. I recently got these, and only play 2-3 times a week, so there was great traction and grip still left in these shoes. The courts are also clean, due to the fact the city cleans them every week. Does anyone else have this problem with the shoes?

    PS: If it helps I'm a 5" 9' 180 pound baseline guy.

    Yeah, Adidas is much better for traction. The first time I used my 2.3's after a BV user, I slid into the net when I was going for a drop shot, and I almost slid into the back fence doing something else... I found the traction got a bit better if you stop yourself by putting the side of your foot into the direction you are moving, not the front, because it will just make you fall for some reason.
