    I need to get a new pair for this springs season...only downside is they need to be less than 65 dollars...what do you recommend that will last long, be good on my feet, and are light?

    I would highly recommend looking at the New Balance CT 780's. I have some and they are without a doubt the best shoe i have ever tried. The best part is they are only 55 bucks.

    they arent bad. lots of heel slip till they get worn in and i got blisters on the side of my small toe till the upper softened up. also on the bottom of other toes but slipping inside seems to have gone now...only problem is they dont last me more than a month or so...but for 37$ after a month you get a free pair of your choice and color(just ask fila how to request another model/color). i played a tough set thursday and both my arches hurt like hell from all the running...i dont know if that means its too much arch or not enough. once i wore two thicker socks in barricades and the arch hurt...never did before so i figured thats a cause of too much arch...but i'm not sure...

    i burn breathe free 2s and barricade 2s in just under the 6 month mark...

    UPDATE: i've been wearing the punto for 10 days now and i see midsole...i think in those 10 days i've played a total of like 10hours...

    i do...whats up :)
