    I think some swiss cheese just threw up on those shoes.

    Or Reebok stylists prefer hole punches. Reebok wins worst styling hands down for pumps all around!

    Does Reebok always hit their shoes with the ugly stick on the way out the factory?

    They look like they compensate for some underlying physical abnormality :-D

    I agree the awful coloured ones are bad, but there's something worse about these, it's like they don't realise that they're hideous!

    Not only were they ugly, but the outsoles were worthless. We could blow through a pair in a week on Florida hardcourts.

    The only tennis shoes that Reebok have ever made that were worth a darn were the mid-nineties Hardcourts.

    Well, then why don't you buy a pair and wear them so that everyone can laugh at you?

    I don't think those are THAT horrible. I would never ever buy them, but don't qualify to be on this thread. They mostly look weird just because of how far the laces go down.

    we are only fulfilling the stereotypes people lay upon us as tennis players


    =/

    I agree the whole prince line is disgusting.

    ha I just bought these ultra ugly offerings. I have loved the Prince Quicktrack series and for 39.99 and a 6 month warranty I couldn't resist.

    Now I have to wear out my NB and these Prince in 6 months which will be a challenge.

    The 1002. I figure I should be able to finish those off in a couple months giving me four months to wear out the Princes. Doable since I am dumb enough to slide on hardcourts on a regular basis.

    Craig,

    Those Reeboks are sooo ugly that they should come with a free bowl of soup. No offense, they look good on you!

    Come on now, you have to stick to tennis, not running or basketball!!! j/k...they're all hideous. I don't think pastels & shoes go together. At all.

    OK, here's some real tennis shoes. In another thread, someone commented that these shoes were cool, but I just don't see it. What do you think about these:

    Probably one of the top 10 basketball shoes alltime on most people's lists.

    The Air Jordan's may be a classic, but the color scheme is a bit out there. If this weren't connected to Jordan, those colors never would have made it. Kinda looks like a clown shoe.

    Nuke, I think it's considered cheating for you to just walk into your closet and start taking pictures...Haha. Just kidding! Yikes, I forgot that good things may come in ugly, size-41 packages...
