    I have goten back into tennis after years away from the game because of college basketball and the older tennis shoes I have just arent doing the job so was wondering which shoes on the market offer the most in cushioning. Thanks for any advice.

    Wilson Tour Vision offer excellent cushioning. If you have a somewhat wider foot, these are wonderful. As are the KSwiss Mi-Soul.

    I have heard that Prince and Head make some good shoes for cushioning. The Adidas shoes I have are horrible for it.

    I just switched to the Prince Scream. It's a heavy show but offers a ton of cushioning. I have pretty brutal him injury and the shoe has allowed me to continue playing for now.

    I don't know about best cushioning, but I use the Yonex shoes on hard courts and they are very well cushioned. Slightly better than Barricade V, but much lighter. Plus, no break in was required. Ventilation is just okay, though. Then again, I haven't found a tennis shoe yet that had very good ventilation in addition to good cushioning. It might take some more cash to complete that odyssey. I go through shoes about every 10 months so I can let you know in about 3 years. :oops:

    BTW, shouldn't this be in the shoes section? It doesn't really have anything to do with pros specifically.

    The Yonex SHT 305s were really good.

    I'm hearing good things about the Asics GEL Resolution 2s.

    I personally only choose Nike these days. The CB 2.3s and the 2K10s are good in the cushioning department.

    Thanks for all the input. I just received a pair of Heads Prestige Pros in the mail so will see how they do and if they arent up to par, will try one of the shoes you guys mentioned.
