+1. I'm using my first pair of T22s and they're great! :)

I still havn't purchased the vapor 9 but i think the vapor is the best shoes for 2012 in terms of comfort when playing. Im planning on buying the wimbledon vapor 9

Yonex 304.

Actually, it might be the Yonex 308s, but I haven't tried a pair yet.:)

While they are late on the scene, the adizero feather 2s are tremendous shoes.

honestly could not agree more. been a vapor guy all my life, but the moment i put my feet in these shoes i was sold.

Vapors are great shoes. Lacking the 6 mo. Warranty hurts though, in my opinion.

i wonder what's the percentage of the "brand representatives" users on these forums...
sometimes it looks a bit suspicious.
but i HOPE i'm wrong.

Love the Big Shots. Super comfy and have had great durability on clay over the past 10 months with them.

Very nice.

Vapor 9 is just a step forward in marketing and exposure, B7 is a step in the right direction in terms of actual shoe development.

WildVolley 07-19-2012 08:25 AM

I've always said that these discussions should be not be titled "best" shoe, but more accurately "favorite" shoe.

In my mind there isn't a "best" shoe because 1) people have different shaped feet, and 2) people want different things from shoes.

For example, I want shoes that are light, low to the ground, breathable, relatively stable, with a normal width heel and wide toe-box. I don't need "support" or cushioning. Durability is good, but not at the tradeoff of very heavy shoes.

Nike shoes may be very good, but I won't say they are the best because they never seem to fit my feet, which makes them useless to me.

Are you saying that some people get paid to hype shoes here?

Why didn't I think of that?!

Nike is so hyped on these boards, that I doubt they'd have to pay anyone. Nike's fan-boys are almost as strong as Apple's.

barricades are too heavy

The vapor 9s are just outright comfy. It's a shame that it gets worn out so quickly with no 6 month warranty. Actually, I think if the vapors were to have a warranty, it would be 3 months max. Just doesn't last long.

The barricade 7s are also pretty good in my opinion. It's on the heavier side, but it did get lighter.

I also love the propulse, but it just doesn't last long and traction is gone quickly... Good thing there's a warranty!
