    Apparently Prince is no longer going to manufacture the Viper Mid shoe. That leaves K-Swiss Ultrascendor Mid as the only mid-high court shoe available it appears. Unless K-Swiss follows suit and ALSO eliminates the mid-high model. Anyone know of anything in the works by ANY company for those of us who like the mid-high shoes to play in?

    I'd second that thought. Wondering if anyone has had any success in finding a replacement for the Prince Viper II Mid that has worked so well for me.

    Nike are re-releasing a modified version of the Agassi mid. Pretty sure the new version is designed for tennis and not just the street, but you may want to double check.

    Unfortunately, the Ultrascendor Mids will be discontinued. Trust me when I say, I know this is frustrating as my Mom has worn those shoes for YEARS and I've been trying to ween her off them for a while (with very little success!).

    However, Prince is bringing the T22 Mid in white/black toward the end of October.

    So keep an eye out for those!

    T22s in a mid? Don't they look weird? How do they look like?

    I wore the Viper mids for a couple of years due to bad ankles, but then decided to try out the ASO ankle braces with low-tops (Asics GR4s). I liked the secure feeling in the Viper mids, but I feel even more secure with the ASOs.
