    I haven't seen or read much about this shoe, but I decided to take the plunge and buy a pair. My Gel Resolution 2's were done, and I wasn't too impressed, they wore out extremely fast and comfort was so-so. Anyway, I wore the Yonex today for the first time, and boy, did they feel nice. No break-in required AT ALL, extremely light, yet stable and supportive. Fits my rather high arched foot perfectly. I was zipping around the court like never before. Plus, they're well priced. I doubt there is a better shoe out there for the money, so why are they not popular? Are they considered to be "recreational player" shoes? Or am I just the only one who likes them?

    BTW, I play every day at a fairly high level, NTRP ~5.5 to 6.0.

    The name of that shoe always makes me laugh. I'm so mature.

    I'm a Yonex fan. They're my favorite shoes. I've mostly been wearing 304s. How is toe box space in the 107?

    I can play 4 hours of tennis in my Yonex and my feet still feel great. I haven't been able to do that with any other brand.

    Definitely a very LARGE toe box in the 107, and a pretty narrow heel. I like that.

    Good to hear that there are other Yonex shoe fans out there.:)

    I have pair of the old 106's. I felt they didn't have as much chushion as the 304s or 306's. Not a bad shoe though. I still prefer 304's over the other Yonex shoes. I presume the 107 are a new version or the 106?
