to me, nike and babolat shoes are just for the looks, they are clearly the best looking shoes out, but the main question is, are they gonna hold up? i have experience with both brand of shoes and i will tell you, i wont buy another pair again. i had the babolat propulse 2 white and i havent even had those shoes for 6 months and they were so horribly messed up. i had two huge holes in both shoes. nike shoes, ive heard that they are very snug fit, and for me i dont like tem snug fit. i had nike shoes and they were horribly messed up as well. i had one hole in the right shoe. nike an babolat srent good shoes to buy. they are also so expensive just because they have so much incorporated in the shoe. think twice the next time you buy nike or babolat shoes.
