    1st impression was: "wow, these shoes look great!". 2nd was: "these shoes are light!". And 3rd was: "why do these shoes have so much room in the front area?". Seriously, why all that room in that area? It's like more than necessary. Anyway, to those curious for more info about the same, I'll be posting my impressions, when I play with them, some time next week.

    Congratulations on your shrewd purchase. I have them in white, and I also think 304’s are great. No break-in required.

    Many people need the room; and these shoes readily accept orthotics. If you feel you won't benefit from any orthotics at all, in any shoes, then you’re very lucky. :)

    As you get more court time in the 304’s, focus on the great cushioning, both heel and forefoot. You might even find that running, stopping, leaping and landing all generate less fatigue – even into the next morning when you wake up.

    Then for your next tennis session, put on your previous, non-304 top name brand shoes and give them a similar stress test. The following morning you'll probably sorely miss the 304’s cushioning.

    At least that's what I experienced. :) Please keep us posted.

    I have high angled and wide feet. So, I appreciate all the extra space. However, the extra space in the finger area striked me as kind of wierd, for some reason. I can move them up and down a bit. Can't do that with Adidas and, much less, Nike shoes. Not saying this is a bad thing, though. Probably, I'll enjoy it and not want to go back, from what I've read... So, I'll be back with my review :)

    What finger area? Do the shoes not cradle your feet securely?

    I think those little digits attached to our feet are called "toes", but not sure.

    For the millionth time, English is not my native language. In Spanish (which, btw, is my native language), you have "dedos de las manos" and you have "dedos de los pies".

    Edit: ;)

    So this probably means that in your native language you’re known as Seniõr Ripper, or El Ripper? :)

    Zapvor,

    In Spanish, your name would probably be Zapovorro, abbreviated as Zorro. :) can you see yourself riding horses and enjoying a good swordfight? That explains it. And the women go crazy (loco). So it's time for you to study Spanish very seriously. Or at least acquire the accent.

    Zapvor? Hummm, closest sounding would be "sapo" or, maybe, "sapo al vapor".
