    Man I cant wait to get these shoes they look good plus i cant wait to see how the replacements work. I called TW up today and they said soon they'll becoming out with replacement soles that you can just buy outright for the nike revives so I think it will end up becoming really cost effective especially seing how during the hard court season I go through a pair of shoes atleast every 2 months

    I hope you're not a toe dragger. My brother has a pair and the toe durability really sucks, since all there is at the toe is the silicone stuff which wears out like rubbing paper on sandpaper (well maybe not that extreme, but you get the point). If you're not a toe dragger these shoes might just be for you cause the outsole seems to be holding up pretty well.

    The toe box is pretty roomy, the only thing is that since the outsole slips on over the toe box area it kind of pushes down on your toes, it's not really a big problem, it just feels that your foot is in there tighter.

    the toebox is fairly roomy...but the area right above that, near where your arches are, is tight...If you wear thicker socks like Thorlos, I would consider going a 1/2 size up....I tultimately didn't, and after a few sessions enduring the pain, they stretched out just enough in that area, but I wear medium thickness socks.

    excited to see what colors they come out with for the soles...and to see how much they will charge. They are very promising shoes.

    the revives are way 2 heavy for me, 18.7 ounces... thats ridiculous, even if durability was a big issue for me... id rather buy cheap pairs of running shoes from kmart than use something that heavy.

    have you tried them on? They don't feel heavy to me at all..lighter than Adidas Barricades for instance....they feel slightly heavier than Zoom vapors to me.

    I agree with monologuist, they sound heavy, but they're not all that heavy when you actually put them on.
