    Those space shoes by Kswiss a couple years ago for Monfils were a disaster. Never saw one player in pros or local ever wear them.

    Any shoes by Asics can be described as ugly. I do not like their stripes.

    K-Swiss spent so much money on that launch, but I don't think I've ever seen anyone wear them.

    Wow, that is heinous. And i like orange. Even if you replace the garish purple parts with gray and blue, it would still be unattractive.

    On the feel end of things, there is something negative about their little plastic ode to pyramids, and the texture of the laces. No fanks.

    The meshy tongue looks comfy, though.

    I think it is trying to be gold, hoping to appeal to the Chinese market during the Chinese indoor season...hideous colorway...

    I bought a pair of them at a Ross for $15 or so.

    I still have them, but they are toast. They lasted like 2 weeks maybe.

    I have those! I paid about $10 at Rugged Warehouse.
    First time I wore them on hard court they were about 25% tread gone

    All of the new lunarballistecs are incredibly ugly IMO. That's one ugly shoe!

    Easy, Polarized Pink/Black/White Vapor 9's that Federer wore at the 2013 Australian Open.

    Yep. I was surprised to see that they were designed by jason petrie who's very well known in the sneaker community. Currently designing lebrons signature models. Guess you cant always succeed haha.

    The one thing i do wish nike tennis would do is have designers in the basketball division design some shoes, just like how tinker hatfield from jordan designed the vapor 9 tours.

    I feel that nike tennis shoes havent improved all that much in the past few years. But after trying on the barricade 8s.. I dont blame them lol

    Ok, those colors are beautiful to those of us who might have attended michigan, uc berkeley, cal st los angeles or might like the indiana pacers. But the plastic look is just bad.

    Maybe with a good amt of navy mixed in :neutral: haha

    If you think the shiny plastic looking part looks bad new, you shiuldve seen then when they were worn and scratched. Not to mention a severe ventilation problem.

    Oh, sorry, that is not navy...it must be black. Okay, well, maybe the vandy or mizzou fans then.

    Ventilation problem, ouch. yeah, no thanks.
