    I know u didn't say nike but why? I am a nike cage I and II user and I love them and they are cusioned and very durable. Try these on before you say nothing of nike. BTW the vapors are good too..

    Nike Breathe Free II is the most comfortable shoe ever!

    Why not Nike?

    I don't recall whether the Asics Gel Resolutions have a guarantee, but these should fit the bill. Outstanding shoes, but I had to send them back to TW because they are too narrow for me. Nice, but not nearly the same level of quality as my Yonex SHT 306's. Not even in the same ballpark. Best ever IMO. But Yonex are narrow only in the heel, not in the forefoot. But what a shoe -- even the top of the toe box is plushly padded.

    The best thing to do is go to the local shop and try on their shoes and see which one is most comfortable. I would try some Prince T20 or MV4, or the Nike cages II or the Vapor V. I have narrow feet and for me Nike offers great performance with comfort and a great value if you buy the older models on TW.

    Nobody talks about the older shoes anymore... I'd say Adidas Barricades II. I love the durability on it...
