    as most of you don't know this year i've only used the cb 1.3. im on my 3rd cb and its the cotton candy. today i was playing my match which i won 6-1 6-2 but i slipped hella with these shoes. as msot of you dont know i like to slide to alot of my balls. but these slides were completely unintentional today and i basically fell flat on my ass 3 times yet i ended up winning the point with a forehand winner.

    maybe its just my problem that i kept slipping not sliding with these clay court soles.

    don't you think that is was a reason that thay colled this model "Clay":shock:??? if you like so much this color you should buy multi cour version

    In my opinion claycourt sole is little bit softer to better court grabing, so on hard it is wearing out, and I think that after few matches you are going to say good bye to your sole.

    Yeah, I've never had a problem with my CB's, but I also have not played with my cotton candies as of yet.

    Sounds like a Nadal situational. Maybe we should be wearing these shoes on hardcourt.

    except i fell three times in a row during the point on the forehand side. after i fell 3rd time he hit a weak deep volley, i got my balance, and hit it for a forehand winner. then after i was like wtf these shoes suck

    thats a fake pic, i know its on the proper site, but they just used the photshoped version and added the flames on it. the hard court version - i think - doesnt exist.
