    I think asics are the most cushioned. The velocitys are nice.

    The Prince MC4 is by far the most cushioned "tennis" shoe I have worn. The Asics, Nike and Addidas "cusioned" models are not even close. IMO of course. I have tried them all.

    LOL... YONEX has the thinest cushion out there. It is nothing more than a Glorified padding. I am quoting "Tennis Magazine".

    most cushioned is NIKE Air max breathfree 2.

    I agree, Asics and Yonex are the most cushioned.

    Source: I have worn several models of both brands and was consistently impressed with their comfort and cushioning.

    I find shoes with too much cushioning actually hurt my knees, like the Reebok Match Day Pumps did - way too much cushioning for me.

    I think what happens is that when I pound my feet, my feet sinks into the thick cushioning and causes me to slightly lose my balance so I put extra stress on my knees as they try to stabilize the rest of my body. After a while of this, my knees start to hurt. That's why I think there needs to be a fine line between stiffness (support) and cushioning (comfort) in a tennis shoe. I've never had my knees ache with Nike BFII's.

    Prince T-20's are really cushioned, like walking on marshmallows.

    I second that. There's a reason why they're so damn heavy.

    For me it has to be the Prince mv4's, look sweet and are really soft.

    Tretorn had a shoe out in the 70's that was the softest by far. I remember being able to hole them out in one set on a hardcourt. But damn, they were mushy.

    OMG, I rememeber that mushy tretorn!
    And the superlight bata shoe too!

    We actually called the factory and convinced them we were a small tennis shop and got a great price on two cases of the shoes. We went through about a pair a week, but got such a great deal on the price it was actually cheaper than buying nike every six weeks or so.

    I found the MV4s to have a really firm sole that bothered my knees.


    The 304s may not have thick cushioning but I find them surprisingly comfortable. I have not had any issues with them other than finding them slightly too long for my foot.

    Anyone remeber the Nike Air max series or the old Nike Resistance shoe? Have a pr 15 yrs old and it still has better cushioning than any shoe I've worn lately.

    The most cushioned shoe I ever had was the adidas A3 Forefoot (I think that was the name). They were out about 6 or 7 years ago. The durability was very bad,

    No you're not. If you are going to say you are quoting somebody where is the exact quote? You are paraphrasing. Not only that your paraphrase changed the meaning of what Tennis magazine was trying to say.


    So let's see you got the quote wrong and in their comments they in fact found the cushioning a bit more exceptional than the weartesters. That is very far away from the "thinest cushion out there"

    Keep up the scholarly work.:cool:
