    Adidas. It used to be Nike but as comfy as they are when you put them (and the really are), the cushioning dies within a week (Breathe Free II and Vapor Speed) and the Vapor Speeds tear apart in less than 3 weeks in my experience. So I switched to the Barricade IV's. They're a bit heavier than the Vapor Speeds, but have a similar glove-like fit and are for more durable than the Breathe Free II's.

    Adidas for tennis. Love em. Then K-Swiss.

    Asics for running. Wish they'd do more with their tennis lineup.

    New balance makes high quality shoes and I have wide feet (but not superwide). But, what I hate about NB is that there is so much room in the toe, so my toes are swimming around although the midfoot (where I need the extra width) is a good fit. I can never get used to that extra room in the toes.

    oscillates and the breathe frees? 2 of the most classic shoes (and shoe lines) of all time. although honorable mention to adidas for the barricades.

    Yep, put down another advocate for the Adidas Barricade IV. Anything else just feels cheap and nasty in comparison.

    I guess it wasn't a good idea to put Reebok as a category. Anyways Nike, because they have good all-around shoes.

    Once in a while, I try other brands like Nike, Fila, Diadora, etc. But I keep coming back to Adidas. I've been happy with every Adidas pair I've owned. Right now, I wear the ClimaCool Booms. Before, I used to wear the Feathers and the Barricades.

    I am curious about the Diadora Speed Pros. But mainly because I think they look really cool.

    Adidas CC Feather II are my favs, amazing on clay, they wear down kinda quick on hardcourt though.

    I had a girl on the street tell me that my Vapor IV's were "so beautiful". She was totally smitten with them.

    The Vapors are a work of art people. Smooth as silk.

    Reebok used to be my favorite. Sad to see them going down.

    anyday.
    the breathe free line has to be the best line yet.
    the barricade line however is close behind and on the rise.

    asics. nike's are nice, but they wear out too fast, plus too narrow in the toe area.

    Addidas (Barricade IIs) seem to work best for me. Although I wish I could find a local store with a decent selection of tennis sneakers to try on others.

  46. i'm torn between nike and adidas... i want something that's a combination of my bIV's and BF2's! the fit and the weight of the nikes and the durability and lasting cushion of the adidas... now that would be a sweet shoe!
