    So the only two shoes that I have tried so far are the Nike Vapor V and Nike Breathe Free II. I really liked the comfort and how my feet felt in the Nike Vapor V, but the durability was a major issue. The Breathe Free II were okay, but not as comfortable as the Vapor V. The warranty and durability were both very good. However I am approaching the 6th month since obtaining the BFII. So I want to know, what is the next shoe you guys would recommend me to try? Price is not an issue because I will get an 85 dollar voucher. I am a very competitive junior who is in between an agressive baseliner and counter puncher. I am very fast on the court, but my footwork is only average. I was leaning towards the W/B/Y CB 1.3, but what do you guys think?

    Do you have a specific foot type (narrow, wide, high arch, low arch?) What do you value most in your shoes? I'd be glad to help but I could use more to work with.

    I do not have a specific foot type, I fit shoes that run true to length. The Vapors were perfect, the front part of the BFII was a little wide, but not uncomfortably wide. In shoes I value comfort, weight, traction, durability, from greatest to least. Thanks for the help.

    Alright, then I think you should look around the Asics. They are like the natural gut of shoes. They have the gel comfort system (best in the business) and good support and traction, but aren't very durable.

    If the voucher is only for Nike gear, then go with the Ballistecs.
