nike air max cage?
 
I saw a picture of the new shoe in federerfan07. I saw it and I get the impression that Nike is bringing back the max breathe cage I used to wear. Federerfan07 did say that del potro is wearing these next year. Plus it will have a durability guarantee. Anyone else saw the new pic of the show.

They're just a re-incarnation of the Air Max Breathe [1s]. Not the Cages (which are the 4th generation of the Air Max Breathe line).

When are these releasing by the way?

There have been pictures of these shoes released by Nike with both the Breathe (spring '13) and Cage (Paris '13) names. Who knows what the name will turn out to be at this point.

Got them from our local shop plus 20% off. Yes it has a 6 months durability warranty.

I was struggling this months finding shoes for myself since I bought 3 pairs 2k10 that I have in rotation and 2 are gone.

If you are fan of the 2K10 like myself(wide toe box), you will be please with the air max cage. Very wide toe box and very comfortable. The sole is thick like a truck(not like 2k10's), but still feel soft and very light in the feet.

Nike is in the right pattern making very comfortable shoes lately. I even own 2 Nike running shoes, the icarus and the pegasus and beat all the asics I own before. Seems they are putting the same effort in the "Tennis department".

Nice! Might pick up the blue/green/white when it comes out! Glad to hear it comes with a 6 month warranty. How does this compare to the 4.3 in terms of comfort and durability?

Good deal. I really like them, but will be waiting for more colorways.

Did they feel a bit big to you? I tried on my usual size (US10.5), but thought the US10 fit better. Bigger/wider toebox was probably a factor.

Your black laces were a nice touch.

They are more comfy than 4.3, but durability cant tell since I bought them yesterday and played for the first time this morning.:-P

Thanks for the complement! Yes 10 felt good and I could buy them at that size, but cause I put Dr. scholls sport insoles on all my shoes I went 10.5. But if you like more snug feel then definitely go for size 10.:)


Now as update. Like I said have the opportunity to played with them for the first time this morning and take what I going to write with a grain of salt since I being playing with 2K10's in rotation for the past year and a half.

So I didnt put my insole and played today with the one nike provide, and my big toes hurt. This shoe will need some breaking period I guess. Like I said before the sole is bulky and higher from the ground than my 2k10's. Now I can see that it has the upper from a 2k10, but the characteristics of Courtballistics.

Do the shoes fit true to size?

Kinda the same in high. But what is different in the max cage is how easy bendable is in the toe area.

Hmmm... according to the TW description, they said to buy 1/2-size smaller, which was what I experienced. So I guess it confirms my suspicion that they run big.

The Nike insole used in Max Cage is different from the Ballistec 4.3. It is much firmer from what I've experienced than the 2K12s, Vapors, or Ballistecs.

darklore009 01-01-2013 08:18 AM

nice getting the new air max cage. which shoe you prefer? the 2k10 or the air max cage?

I saw that on TW and was a bit shocked as I've never had to size down in any Nike shoe. If anything I usually have to size up 1/2 because of how tight they run. These should run true with a bit a wiggle room. If I have to send my pair back for a 1/2 smaller I'll eat the damn shoes :)

Rjtennis 01-01-2013 08:58 AM

Im going to be buying a pair shortly, I can't deal with the eyelet issue of the courtballistecs and I wear holes in the Vapor 9's a bit too quickly. These look like they will be a great shoe!

Hey Darklore, if the question was for me, I do prefer the 2K10(mix with my dr. scholls insoles) better. I dont want to give a final thought since I just used them once, but by the end of the week I can give more feedback.

In regard the size, I just put the 2k10 in one feet and the air max cage in the other to compare and both 10.5 are the same(same distance from toe to the front of the shoe), so I dont know where TW came with that idea. I think many people are use to that "snug feel", so maybe that's why the recommendation.

Im naturally a 10, but I always buy half inch bigger cause I put my insole and cause I like always half inch space from toe to the tip of the shoe. So I guess goes by preference of the shoe. But I will said the shoe is true to size.

Pic for reference in size.....
