    Will you be stoking a CB 4.3 clay shoe?

    Sorry for all the questions it's just because i'm about to place a massive order.

    Thank you TW.

    Correct. We will only have the white/silver with the clay outsole.

    Is there any real major deterrence playing with hardcourt soles on a clay court?

    Will I be able to adapt?

    @Babolast,
    The reason the shoes are different is because normal shoes catch clay in the sole and the shank, and the sole will make it harder to slide and move on the clay. The herringbone on clay shoes allows you to slide well sideways, and get traction running forward and back. There's nothing stopping you from playing in normal shoes on clay, it will just may be more difficult to move.
