    CB 2.3s have better cushioning, lateral support, great durability, and a nice snug fit, only downside is the cramp toebox. The only thing the vapor tour has is a nice roomy toe box and that's it. I hope the next Vapor Tours fixes the lateral support issue since that is the main drawback of the shoe.

    I had the same problem with the 2.3s is the cramped toe box on the right shoe only. For whatever reason the toe box was cramped on the right shoe but fine for the left one, I'm thinking about returning them and going with the lunar vapors instead.

    For me, the Vapor Tour is just sweetness. Soft, comfortable, ultra-light. I forget I'm wearing shoes. Just heaven.

    Which means that next year they will completely abandon its design and create a horrible abortion of a shoe.

    i have both of them. i loved the lunar vapor tours so i sold my 2.3's and got 4 more pairs of the lunar vapor tours. the lunar vapors are just so light and comfortable. i wear 2 pairs of socks to compensate for the "extra" space and make the shoe more snug fit.

    the vapors felllt soooo comfortable!!! however i felt like i can tear it to shreds in 3 weeks. However the courtballistic...it is a beast in its own way. Its tough and durable. Some say it hurts their feet until its broken in.

    The lunar vapor tours all the way, i have the cb 2.3's now and they give me horrible blisters in the arch of my foot, and my pinky toes and the lunars didnt give me any blisters and were much lighter

    CBs are clunkers.

    Maybe I got a defective pair of Vapors cause to me they are way more snug then any of my pairs of CBs. I actually am really loving the Vapors right now, so much lighter, heel feels locked in well, plus the looks of the shoe. Hopefully they last longer then my one and only pair of 2K10s.

    2.3 is a fantastic shoe. i have three brand new pairs right ready for action in 2012. it just feels perfect. been playing for ten years and no shoe has won me over to buy three pairs at once.

    I've got 2.3's and 2k10's, and found the 2k10's to be the wider fitting of the two. But I've never tried the lunars, so how so they fit in comparison? I've got pretty wide feet, and I'm going to be using orthotic inserts now in the shoes, so they need to be big enough for that.

    I hear ya man, I wear orthotics too and had the cb 2.3's and they bunched the hell out of my toes, even after i had sanded down the orthotic under the toe area. I got some 2K10s and not only did the orthos fit great, i could wear 2 pairs of socks without toe jamming. PLUS they shaved off three ounces per foot due to the cb clunkiness. nuff said

    Thats the problem I had with the cb 2.3s is that the toe box is way too tight. I returned them and got the vapor tours and they were kind of stiff and I ended up hurting my knee. After the 2nd time wearing them I bought some orthotics and now they feel fine. Its no way I could use the orthodics I bought with the cb 2.3s I wouldnt be able to fit in them.
