    I know this has been an iffy topic thats been talked about a few times, but are they all right to even consider buying? I personally dont see whats wrong with them; light, elegidley durable, Barricade IV or better looks? I just dont know if theyre worth it.

    My Triands lasted me 4 months and I play on hardcourt a little bit so they are pretty good, they just don't looks as great as the Barricades!

    these shoes are all over the place in the UK (around £45) maybe because of the criminal lack of tennis footwear in sports stores.


    forget it. no stability? might as well use cross-trainers..

    they are lighter and only have ok support. if you are not hard on shoes they should be ok.

    Defect

    I bought a pair of these and the 5th time I wore them, a defect cropped up. A lump formed right under the insole of the left shoe. It's weird and distracting, so I returned them, only for it to happen again with the brand new pair! And it's only the left shoe!

    I don't think I'm that hard on shoes either. Anyone else experience this?

    i have a pair of the navy/orange ones and theyre awesome. theyre almost as good as my bIV's but half the price so i have no complaints. not as "heavy duty" i guess u can say and without the warrantee but theyre lighter and cheaper. if you dont want to spend very much money on surprisingly nice shoes, i would definitely recommend the tirand II's.

    My son wears them and thinks they are great, and for the price they are a bargain.
