    I usually play in hard courts because there arent many clay courts where I live, just some in clubs and hotels. If I lived In Argentina, my fathers country, I would find clay courts easily and buy these yellow ones that you refer to.

    Have you used Yonex shoes?Are they good?:)

    Thanks:)

    Anyone know if Yonex will be making new shoes for each Grand Slam like Nike is or are they just making 2, the clay and the normal one that Hewitt will be wearing for the whole year?

    Hey mate, can you tell me how the shirt fits, is it tight fitting or does it run small?

    Also for the shoe, if you can compare to to Court Ballistecs of Vapor Tours, how is the sizing and length? Is it true to size?

    Yellow 307s

    The photos @T-W & H-bird clearly show nubby soles on the yellow model but T-W isn't listing them as a clay shoe. If they're the new color for clay, I guess I'll stock up on the red/whites for $10 less and no need for Pepto to prevent puking while lacing up. The gold ones are fine!

    If you read up on the TW description of the yellow/black new Yonex, it's mentioned a couple of times it's for clay.

    Finally, after the 306s, Yonex makes an awesome looking shoe.

    Past history Yonex men's color schemes

    If Yonex holds true to past history, they intro 2 color schemes for the HC model & 1 for clay per year. I have only seen the gold HC and yellow (gag me) clay versions so there should be one more in the pipeline soon, maybe to match shirt colors? BTW Torrance knows how to treat product loyalty better than anyone in the biz! A shout-out to Yonex Consumer Services!

    lol I think he's talking about Torrance, CA. Yonex USA's headquarters. I've visited the place plenty of times and those guys just love their jobs, super nice people. Easy trip for me when I visit my friends in the city. (I live in SD)

    Hey Your name!^^^ Shirt I went with the XL tried the Large on.I'm buy no means a big guy but the large felt tight around the underarms.

    I found no issues with the size,my usual 11 fits bang on.Low arch support,Wide in the Toebox.Under padded tongue ala 2k's.
    enough padding in the ankles not as much as the 2.3's Low to the ground feel.Still giving them time to break in a bit.Might take em out Friday for a light knock.

    Yonex should've made the material that protects your big toe alot more durable.I'll be shreddin a hole on hard stops in no time.Leather isn't going to suffice.I tell you, it's nice not to have a Uni-tongue.These badboys are light I'm sure i'll be at top speed.Haven't tested the Traction or Support yet but feels like they're not going to buckle like a cheap shoe.Ventilation looks good with the mesh Tongue and preforations that run along the side should allow the 307's to breathe well.The sole has some real nice deep grooves that look real beefy,I like that.
    Do my best to give a more in depth mini review once i have at least 2 hrs on them.They are Stunning.Post back Sat Cheers

    I think otherwise.
    No, the yellow/black is for clay courts, TW just made a mistake in not putting the CL and the gold is for HC.
    I am not sure about the results of playing with a clay shoes on HC, ask the Europeans they have the clay courts and HC and they may be able to tell you something.

    Indeed! I wished they would do special deals for us recreational players, I'd buy a few racquets and a bag in a heartbeat.

    I asked Yonex guys about that. Playing with clay shoes on hard courts. Only difference is that the Tread or dimples on clay shoes will wear OUT really quick on hard courts, they said. It is designed to grab the court on soft Clay courts but it will just wear out on hard courts. That is the only difference according to them.:)

    I like the build and the flash of the Yonex shoes, but I just can't drop over $100 on a shoe without a 6 month warranty. I'm on the court too much. Will the "smaller" brands, like Yonex & Diadora, jump on the warranty bandwagon?

    Thanks for the info Fedace.
    I am with the 307 Bluesilver and an old 306 red. For sure the next one will be the yellow ones.
    Looser?? hard to understand , but It needs a break in and it may cause you some blisters, but after 4-6 hours it is the best.

    For the shirt sizing, in regard to waste and chest, is it tighter than normal? Would the large be the same length as the extra large?
