    does anyone have a real response? Who cares about Nadal/Roddick - this question is about product performance....

    Barricades are great on clay even though they're not clay shoes. How about Propulses? Clearly a Hardcourt shoe, but how do they do on Clay/Har-tru? I believe that was the OP's question. Anyone have experience they would like to share? Thanks!

    dude, the propulse is a hard court shoe only, the sole is like a slick tyre. it has only a few holes where the clay could go but would get clunked up. im being honest, i love the shoe, most comfortable shoes iv ever tried, and ive had all the barricades, nike cages, vapors, feathers and a3s. if you want a great clay shoe then get the climacool feather OR, i know nike a realising the new ballistic that nadal will wear in a clay sole. babolat also do a team clay shoe that is good.

    What kind of clay? Red or Har-Tru? If the latter, well worn hard court shoes work just fine. My well worn Barricade V's and new Airmax Cross Trainers are great on Har-Tru. Cannot speak from personal experience on the red variety.
