Fit difference between CB 3.3 & CB 4.3
Could someone please tell me the difference in fit between the CB 3.3 and the CB 4.3?

I have owned a few pairs of 3.3 and had to size up from a 10 to a 10.5.

I see the in the write up that the 4.3 has a medium width compared to the 3.3 narrow width... so not sure if I need that extra half size?

I wear the same size in 4.3 as I did in 3.3. The 4.3 are a little wider as the upper is far more flexible and the laces are set a lot further apart. Some people did need to size down, but not me.

Overall the 4.3 has all the benefits of the 3.3 but is lighter, far comfier and better breathability. As regards comfort, it's the about the comfiest tennis shoe I've worn.

Only downside is that some have found the lacing system even more prone to failure than the 3.3.

Thanks for the response NJ1!

I took a chance and went down to the size 10.

Hopefully they fit :-)

If you loved the CB 2.3 then the 3.3 is not going to fit the bill, the 4.3 is closer to the 2.3 but still in the 3.3 "tight" while being a little wider... thats the key to wearing nike shoes, if you have narrow long feet then nike is your favorite tennis shoe, if you have wide feet then welcome to the world of lacing systems, beating up the shoe, break-in time and even more so looking elsewhere maybe Barricades?

Are all colorways prone to lacing system failure?

I'm always hoping they fix it with next colorway.


yeah i've had two pairs of them and my newer pair doesn't seem to be any different than my old pair.

Gents... So my 4.3's arrives and they are definitely a slightly wider fit than my older pairs of 3.3's... but they do fit like a glove for me..

Played an epic 3 set doubles yesterday straight from the box and they were brilliant..!
