Best shoes for cushioning?
 
I have used the Barricades and thought they were horrible, so tried the Head Radical Pro because of their reviews but dont think they are that much better. The one pair I have used that worked pretty well were the Prince T10s but they are hard to find so wonder if you guys have experienced any that are excellent for cushioning?

I found the ASICS Gel Res 2s provide great cushioning for a performance shoe. I also benefit from wearing Thorlos socks. Great combo.

Nike is by far the best shoe for comfort. Adidas is comfortable but the insoles are more harder.

Another opinion: Nike Breathe 2K10 are not comfortable at all. Neither are the Air Court Del Mar. They may do other things, but cushioning is definitely not one of them. For best cushioning, I'd recommend Adidas Forest Hills, or Stan Smith or Tennis Comfort.

the cushion on the asics gel resolution 2s and new balance 900ds is incredibly excellent. but be warned that you pay the price of durability for that extra cushioning. if the courtballistec 2.3s fit you then i would go with those because they strike a great balance between performance, support, and comfortability.

you tried barricades and head shoes for cushioning?

cushioning= asics gr2, prince t22 i think, yonex 307(not sure of the #) and maybe cb 2.3/3.3 depending on who you ask

the ASICS Gel Res 2's are by far the most comfortable shoe ive owned, as far as durability...not so much, could easily go threw 2-4pairs a season... barricades i also loved, not as comfortable as the ag2s, but far exceed the ag2s when it comes to life time

Yonex all the way! Followed by Asics. These two brands have the best cushioning by far. Don't let the Niketards lead you astray.

Nike Lunarlite Vapor 7..............They take Tennis Shoes to a whole new Marshmallow.

Asics Gel Resolution. TW offers 6 months outsole warranty on those, so durability should not be a concern.

You can greatly improve cushioning of any shoe by replacing the insole with one from superfeet or something similar. Also wearing cushioned socks such as thorlo level 3 can help a lot too.

These days I generally go for a stable shoe, then add an insole and put on some thorlos and I am good to go-

Just buy some sorbothane and a roomier shoe like k-swiss.

I found a Tennis magazine from about a year ago that reviewed about a dozen shoes and the Head Raical Pro received the highest score of any they tested for cushioning so thats why I bought them.

Prince T22s

Ok cooper, you and your nike collection of shoes with your marshmallows. Try some adidas shoes and you will see matching comfort. I will challenge you in every post you make to prove you wrong.:)

I hope you are happy being banned then.

I'm pretty light in weight, but have a busted hip and need a heavily cushioned shoe to even step foot on a tennis court. I tried the Radical Pro like the OP did, but it didn't fit well with an orthotic insert. I tried a Wilson model that I liked, but settled on the Prince Scream 3 because of the better fit with the orthotic. I like this shoe a lot...it's heavy, even for a court shoe, but seriously cushioned and very durable. 2 hours to break it in and you're good for months. Give it a try.

My vote is for the Vapor 8!

Recommend you try Prince T22 shoes, they are even better than the T10.

I have had foot problems for years, but solved the issues by switching to Throlo level 3 socks and replacing the insoles with http://www.spenco.com/webview/Tech_S...talSupport.pdf. The new insole Spenco Total support has great support and cushioning.

Nike and Adidas do not work for me, Nike last about 3 weeks and lose support. Adidas you might as well be bare foot, no cushion at all.
