    The only New balance shoe ive ever tried on was a CT1000 and I would have worn a 10 1/2 2E. Would this mean that i would wear a 10 1/2 2E in the CT 820's?

    Thanks.

    You should find the 10.5 2E to work just fine in the CT820 as well. This shoe is not available in a 2E width with Black colorway.

    Thanks Chris. I just compared the 820 review and the 1000 review and im supprised that the overall sole durability was higher for the 820's than it was with the 1000's. I would have thought with the 820's being light that they would have a thinner outsole and be less durable than the 1000's.

    Im a light player who is reallly fast and use my speed as a wepon much like Hewitt does. Which would you reccommend between these 2. I know that the 820's are light but the 1000's got high traction scores so that means they would grip better.

    Thanks again.

    Out of the two shoes I prefer the CT820. The CT820 is my favorite New Balance shoe right now - I've worn the CT1000 and the CT1001.
    I like the lightweight, found good traction and the durability is exceptional for such a light shoe. The rubber compound is the same as that used on the CT1000 and CT1001 and they are all very durable shoes in regards to the outsoles.
    If you are a fast mover, the light weight and low to the ground feel of the CT820 should make it an ideal fit for your game.

    Cheers,
    Chris, TW

    I would get the Nike Air Max Breathe Free 2's except there so expensive while the CT820's are pretty good price considering they have a durability warranty. Are the Air Max Breathe Free's worth the extra money?

    Thanks.

    Did you mean that TW will never get the CT820's in Black?

    The Air Max Breathe Free is an exceptional shoe and worth every penny. It is the best shoe I've worn in 2004. I'm still wearing them while rotating them in with other test shoes and the comfort and traction is still top notch.

    The New Balance CT820 is a great shoe and the amount of performance it offers for the money makes it a steal.

    We will not be getting the Black in the 2E.

    Chris, TW.

    Since I would really like to get the black CT820's do you think that the D's would stretch at all? I did also try on a D width of the CT1000's and they were bearable.

    Also when do you think the Reebok Upset DMX review will be out?

    thanks.

    I have a narrow foot so cannot advise on the width question.
    We are a week deep in the Reebok Upset review so it will be at least three weeks before the review is up.

    Im looking at getting the Upset's since I don't really care for the white CT820's and was mainly wondering how the traction was on the Upset's? Also I saw that the Upset uses DMX Foam cushioning and I was wondering what the Figjams used? Was it gel?

    Thanks
