    I am currently playing in the CB 2.3's size 9.5. They are comfortable, but not nimble feeling, and they are too big in the heel. When I play singles I am moving around too much in them. I use Super Feet Orange insoles.

    I used to play in the CB 1.3's size 9 which were snug but too tight to use the super feet insoles.

    I recently tried the Prince T22's and in size 9.5 my big toes is hitting the front. Also tried the Nike Vapor sz9.5 (white with gold - nice look) and they also seemed a bit too boxy.

    I have decent arches, my foot is a bit narrow in the back. I have had Plantar Facaittis so I want s shoe with great support and cushioning.

    I play 3-4 times per week, usually 1 hr singles, and 2 hours of dubs, so 3 hours on my feet. I am 48, and walk more on the outside of my feet (like a duck)

    I had a pair of NB 803's which were a pretty good fit, and a pair of NB 1003's which were too boxy in the front, and my big toe would rub and be sore after long days but yet the shoe was a bit too wide.

    My left foot is a bit bigger than my right. I wish I could buy a 9.5 for my left and a 9 for my right....

    SO ... what shoe should I try next?

    Maybe try the Asics Gel resolution 2. Asics shoes (at least their runners) seem to have good arch support, great cushioning, as well as a narrow heel cup for a nice snug fit. Hope this helps!

    That's a personal problem we don't need to hear.

    Anyway, CBs are awesome. Try the Vapor line. Perhaps one day NikeiD will have tennis shoes and you can get 9.5 left, 9 right shoes (for tennis).

    Try to remember where you left it, with some luck it will be close to where you found the left sneaker. Good Luck.

    Tried the Genius 2, and will have to return them, as they are definitely too narrow for me.
    I am going to try the zoom breathe 2k10 next. I like the CB2.3's but they are definitely bigger and clumsier than the CB 1.3's were. Maybe the CB3.3's will be the one.
