    Been wearing them for years. Ever since the first 304's came out. Best shoes out there.

    I know. I was wearing vapor 9s ever since they came out until I picked up a pair at the cincy tournament and bam! Most comfortable shoes I've ever worn.

    the best tennis shoes ever made.. only probably it wears out so fast.. I love yonex b/c I have a wide feet.. it's great cushion, stable with nice balance and light.. I wish the durability improve a little bit more..

    I have a pair of Yonex SHT 307 shoes and they are great (my ankles don't hurt anymore). The only problem for me is that they are way too small (short). My shoe size is around men or junior size 7 (I have a pair of Adidas Barricade Team junior size 7 but they are too big) so I ordered men's size 7.5 as some reviews said that they had to order a half size larger, thinking that there was no way they could be too small. Wrong. The shoes are only just tolerable in sizing so next year when my feet grow, I will need to buy another pair of shoes! Maybe my foot shape or whatever, is the reason for the small fit but anyways, I would like to hear other people's experience on the sizing.

    I usually wear size 11 in Nike and Prince with a custom insole and I feel the Yonex 307 runs big as I had to use size 10.5. I took out the factory insoles and compared the size and length from the Yonex 10.5 to a Nike 11 and it was the same size.

    I'm hesitant to call any shoe the best, because feet come in different shapes, but Yonex 304s are the most comfortable tennis shoes I've ever worn. Also, they are light (at least for tennis shoes), lighter than almost all of the "speed" shoes made by other brands. The only downside is that they aren't terribly durable.

    I've found the Yonex men's shoes to be true to size. I can wear a 11.5 while I need to go up to size 12 in many other brands. I believe this is primarily because toe box width is better in the Yonex shoes.
