    I still am like in shock. After spending at least $500 on various Nike's, all top end models and suffering from:
    SEVERE Achilles Tendonitis
    BURSITIS ( I mean who the fuch gets Bursitis, I didn't even know what it was.)
    CRAMPS, ACHES, PAINS of various degrees
    One of my tennis buddies who is like a rabbit said I should try ASICS and for once in my life I listened. I owe this dude a life debt.
    I just gave 3 pairs of Nike BF's and 1 pair of Vapors to Goodwill and feel like I ought to sue Phil Knight. Crappy shoes, not only that, the sole is gone after a month.

    I have GR4s, and have also found the Yonex shoes to be very comfortable as well.

    Yep, I tried Nike, Adidas and Price, but none of them really gave me a 100% satisfaction rate.
    The GR3 and GR4 are great shoes :)

    Bursitis tends to recur, and when the bursa is inflamed it can become infected, often leading to surgery. I doubt the Nikes caused this problem. You should avoid playing on consecutive days.

    I've got the black and red ones. Might pick up a pair of the grey and orange ones too, they're fly.
