    Sorry guys I'm a bit tired and don't feel like doing a search.

    I'm currently interested in these shoes and I was wondering which version would be best on synthetic grass? And could anyone please tell me about their sizing?

    Thanks alot.

    I know that the blue is for clay and the yellow is for hard courts but can anyone please tell me what is the silver and red coloured ones for?

    My understanding is that the silver and red ones are the same as the yellow, but in different colors.

    EDIT: I should read more.

    Anyway, the blue is for clay? My friend just got the Yellow, I said I wanted Blue, but he said that they were for grass. I will probably get blue in that case. 70 AUD down at the factory.

    i think the blues are for clay and the other colors are for hard courts...i really like the blue ones but noticed that they're for clay and since claycourt tennis isn't real tennis...

    j/k:D

    Yonex in Australia is distributed by Gray Nicholls in Melbourne. They have an outlet store that's really low key :D

    I play on synthetic grass and synthetic clay, but more on the grass, so would the clay version still be the best choice? I find the surfaces similar except that the clay bounces a lot higher. I still slide on both surfaces.

    To me, the shoes play pretty good on synthetic grass. I play on synthetic grass for my school and they work well for me.

    The clay shoes are nice on any surface. I wear them and they have lasted me longer than anything. The sole has plenty left on it, no breakage - very durable. A bit of a strange fit. I think firm through the middle but lots of room at the front. I like the high heel support.

    Nah, synthetic grass. I don't play on synthetic clay...i play on en-tous-cas. Could be the same thing as sythetic clay, not sure though

    westside, i think he was referring to the type of shoes you have, not the surface you play on
