    There are pretty much no tennis shops near me, and sports authority and dick's have little selection.

    I bought some adidas barricades in size 12 (my feet are 11.5) from tennis warehouse, and they give me blisters and make my knees sore after playing in them for awhile. The biggest problem is that whenever I run for a ball and stop suddenly, me feet shift forward and my toes jam. I'm scared my toenails are going to get torn off some day. lol I am hesitant about buying shoes online again, but I have nowhere else to go, really.

    I have low-medium arch feet. All I ask for is a shoe that is comfortable, somewhat durable, good on the knees, and one that will not give me toe jams! :mrgreen:

    I have very old adidas feathers and they are wonderful. I never got toe jams and they were very comfortable, but I had them in size 13 (should I get shoes in that size from now on). But they have worn thin. I would love shoes just like them, but more durable since I play on hard courts 99% of the time.

    I pretty much have a low arch, almost flat-footed. I injured my knee back in winter of '05. Since then I've always worn Breathe Free II's. I recently switched to Breathe Cage II's earlier this year but began having knee pain once again due to worn cartilage and fluid in my knee cap. I ended up switching back to my Breathe Free II's because I forgot I had a saved pair stuck under my bed. Durability is questionable. I'm a toe-dragger especially on my serve. But they seem to last me a couple of months before the wear and tear is noticable by lack of performance.
