Best Hard Court shoes for Long Life/Durability/Traction
 
I was wearing K-Swiss 7.0 and they were great, though a little on the heavy side - but they didn't last long!

So, would like to check with you folks which are the most long lasting shoes on hard courts?

I am getting a really high level of durability from my current Babolat Team All Court III's. I'm on around 2.5 months and very little signs of wear (4-5x a week playing). As a reference, it was taking me about a month to wear through my favorite shoes: Asics Gel Resolution I's.

Barricades

i just bought barricades a couple weeks ago and adidas sure beefed up their shoes than how they were 10+ yrs ago.. i'm gonna assume these will last me much longer than the warranty

I still burn through the 5's in 3-4 months, but everything else lasts even shorter.

How about the Nike Ballistec 1.3? They are built tough.

Mine seem to be wearing well also, though I'd put out a small warning. In contrast to the other shoes I've worn recently, Barricade II and Oscillate, there's not a lot of forefoot support and I've found it rather easy to twist and jam the front half of my foot. From the middle back, they're great. As for wear, they're great. I am just worried about the support long-term and may not buy another pair because of it...

NB 1004's awesome for hard courts,cushioning similar to AGR2's,Sole that's built to last plus Ndurance warranty.Lockdown liner inside helps you're foot from any sliding issues.Low to the ground feel.I'll take these to play when I know that I'll be knocking for hours.This was my first NB shoe and I'm very satisfied.Great for wide feet also,only dislike is the shoe is built a little bulky.Not as stealthy as a Vapor or PP2s.These I feel will last me months witch is strange cause I go through sole's for lunch.Pick a pair up you can thank me later.
Take Care.

I agree, the best shoes I have ever bought. Excellent durability, comfort etc.

+1

The New Balances are awesome. I used to be a Nike ho. All I'd ever buy/want was Nikes. 3 pair Resolves, 4 pairs Breathe free II, Vapors etc etc. The longest usage I'd get on average was 4 month off the hard courts (8 hrs per week 4.5 NTRP). The Breathe Frees II were the most comfortable Nike tennis shoes I've ever worn. Then I decided to try my pop's NBs he praise so much. They felt roomy at first (we wear the same size), but they were very comfortable, and lasted an average 5-6 months. Went through 2 pairs since 2007. Exceptional shoes, with variable widths to choose from. AND they go on sale. They've made more stylish designs as of late. It's a win win with NB.

I have tried 2 pairs of pro pulse, 2 pair of Nike Breathe Free Max II but they can't beat barricade when comes to durability.
They sure are more comfortable compare to Barricades.

zapvor 06-30-2009 04:16 PM

NB and barricades. NB more comfy, barricade more durable
