    I wore my black/turq balistics to school once and all I heard were people talking about if everyone saw my shoes. It was kinda cool but at the end of the day it got annoying. One kid is still complimenting me even when I'm not wearing them! :D

    my bday is coming round the corner at the end of the month and im looking for new tennis shoes...currently have the geniuses, i want something else. i have had the barricade iv before, but not the V. i have had both versions of the cages and am thinking of getting another pair of the 2's. the ballistecs don't really appeal to me yet, not with those colours. so should i go with barricade v or cage 2?

    Tell you the truth, if you buy a pair of shoes the colors should make a very little contribution to your purchase. IMO, I would take performance over looks anyday.

    Haven't seen this thread in a while, so thought i'd help it pull a lazarus. This is a final picture of my current collection, as the Vapor III's and IV's have finally reached the point of being unusable for anything, and are due to be retired (ie. binned), shame really, because i loved the IV's. Currently using the white V's for the gym and running (no tread left), the black for matches and the cages for rubbish courts and clay

    My latest ASICS, the Game 2s. Same lightning blue as the Res 2 but a bit different. Haven't played in them yet, so playability remains to be seen. But still nice looking. :)

    Teyko those are nice shoes, Prince shoes, IMO, are the best in durability and the new models are a really good improvement in comfort.

    Thanks,

    I have always loved Prince. I have a very wide foot...so they are really the only shoe company that I can wear with the most comfort. And these T22's are so stable. It really locks your foot down. I want two more colors orange and blue.

    Which ones, Scraps?

    Because only the zoom beyond are used, the others have never been worn

    really? i think it says "MADE IN IND" which means made in indonesia because most nike shoes are made there. and then it says N.Y.C.

    I too was concerned at first about the weight of the Ballistec's, coming from the Breathe Free IIs and the Asics Gel Resolutions. Yes, the Ballistec's are heavier, but I actually don't notice any real effect on my movement at all. If anything, I love the cushioning and the stability it provides, and it really fits my feet very well. I now have 3 of the Ballistecs (the white/silver, the charcoal/pink, and the white/yellow). The only shoe that I thought was so bulky/heavy that it slowed me down was the Reebok Match Day Pumps -- the softest cushioning of any tennis shoe I've ever worn, but otherwise impossible to play in because of the weight and lack of ventilation.

    I have the same ones, and the shoe laces are really quite short. Great shoes though!

    lol, I am currently wearing the cage I and have about 6 miles of lace left over after I tie them.

    But I have long really narrow feet.

    The Cadge I's were my last shoes, and I had a lot of shoe lace left over too. I also have narrow feet. I have those Cadge II's above in a size 10.5 and can barely get one tie on the shoes laces, let alone double knot them. Does that make sense. Anyway, the II's are the way to go, although I liked how the I's felt smaller.

    I still have 2 or 3 pair of cage I and 6 pair of BFII and 4 pair of Vapor V in backstock (Not counting my clay shoes, lacoste or barricades). So I will wait until I get the super deal on the Cage II before I buy them.
