    I've been using running shoes to play tennis and I think it's really starting to hurt my feet & parts of my game. Thus, I've decided to go buy tennis shoes, but I'm not sure which ones are good.

    I don't want to spend too much on a pair (preferably under $60) so I'm not sure what to get. The Nike vapors look nice, but they're 80+.

    I saw a few that I liked but I'm not sure if they're suitable for tennis. Can you guys check it out and give me some additional recommendations?

    Thanks!!


    Btw, I would consider myself a 3.5

    One of the smartest things you can do is buy a shoe with a warranty. If you play enough tennis, then it's effectively 2 pairs for that price + shipping back. Though it's approaching winter, so you might want to question whether or not you'll be playing enough to warrant wearing through the soles...

    In general, I don't see tennis shoes as a major factor in one's game play, I think that you should focus on comfort and stability rather than durability, so you'll be able to wear out the shoe as well as help your game a bit more. Maybe try the Gel Resolutions?

    Don't get the "classic" tennis shoe you linked. Any shoe that looks like that is just for casual wear, unless you play on grass court and don't run after balls.

    I know I sound like a broken record anytime someone asks for tennis shoes that are like running shoes. But the New Balance 900s are exactly that-- running shoe base built-up to be a court shoe. Best of both worlds: light yet durable. Also comes with a 12-month gty, so for $82 you are basically getting 2 pair. I wore through mine in about 3-4 months playing 2-4 times a week on hardcourts.
