    We are introducing a new review format on this one -- video only and just one reviewer.

    This review style will compliment our regular reviews and enable us to get product reviews to you on more products and in a more timely fashion.

    Great Review. Our team is is wearing them this semester and I thought the review was Spot on. Only comment I have is that Six months is a VERY generous estimate for how long these shoes can last a player.

    Thanks for the feedback. Please note I said they would not last me six-months.

    The Air Max Court Ballistec 1.3 is a better choice for durability -- especially since it comes with a guarantee.

    Good luck with your season.

    didn't really care for the review. no word on ventilation issues that i've seen posted on user comments. I would prefer to hear more than one dude's opinion. nice try though.

    I did not enjoy the review either. It would be much more valuable to have more perspective about the shoe and see more than you just playing in the shoe then talking about it. I didn't see 2 months worth of testing in that review...

    BTW, I thought the review style was great in addition to the content. I thought it was fantastic to see the the actual features while hearing about them.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    For those of you who prefer our other review format, that will continue. This format will allow us to review more products in addition to those being reviewed by our team.

    hey chris what racket set up were you using in that review. My guess is:
    Volkl Powerbridge 10 mid
    Polyfibre TCS at 60
    Volkl Dampner
    Wilson Pro Green overgrip

    I like the new review style, so if you can review a lot more products than in the past, continue with it...
    And how about sweeping the court?? :mrgreen:

    Tried these shoes on last week, they felt very stable, like mini tanks...
    But the flywire was flexing in a strange way on one side of the toe on the right shoe...
    Can somebody explain this??? Personally I'm not a fan of these shoes and I wonder if Roger is really wearing a shoe with a vapor 6 paintjob...

    Federer's shoe is custom made for his feet and is not the same as the retail version and never has been.
