Some tennis shoes advice for my specific needs, please.
 
Hey peeps'....I haven't been around in awhile, but it's good to be back. I've been working hard at becoming a better player, even in the face of Michigan winter limitations, etc.

I got tennis shoes for Christmas....Adidas Bercuda. I am generally an Adidas guy and shun Nike for reasons that probably aren't justified, but I figure there is plenty of other brands to pick from, so whatever. I don't like the fit of the Adidas Bercudas I got yesterday...they seem narrow. I've been playing with New Balance 623 shoes, which aren't really tennis specific, but felt very good on my feet from the get-go. I think having your kicks feel good on the court is half the battle, but the other half is to get the benefits of tennis-specific court shoes, and I feel I need them now. So I'm going to return the Adidas Bercudas. Can you guys give me some direction on what to look for? I'm looking for something that is a bit wider, and has good support for high arches. Unfortunately, I'm only in the $60-$70 range at the most. I be poor...haha. I think my wife got these Bercudas for $45 bucks here at the T-Ware'.

I've heard that Asics are great.....I wouldn't mind going in that direction. But whatever I get, I'll likely have to order them from here to use my refund, and I've always been wary of ordering shoes online because it's one thing I insist on trying on.

So point me in the right direction....a bit wider, high arch support. Preferably Adidas, Asics, or New Balance.

TIA, guys.

I love my Asics GR4s. Priced higher than your stated range, but I think they're worth it. Plus they have a six-month guarantee. If you wear them out before then, you can send them back and get a new pair (at least that's what the warranty card says..)

I got the Babolat V-Pro All Court on sale for $45 and I like the fit. Maybe worth a try for you. Can't swear for durability since I just got them a couple of weeks ago but they feel comfortable for me right out of the bat.

If you are an adidas guy, try the Feather 2. A little wide for my liking, but great shoes.

I have read your thread, and noticed that your price range is $60-$70, but the new Adidas cc feather II are wide. I know that it's not in your range but this is a wide shoe offered by adidas.

I think I'm going to try the Asics gel game 3. I've heard great things about the Asics shoes, they have the minimalist look I prefer, and seem to have good reviews. Do they really run a half size small? Comfort is a huge deal for me, and I hear constantly how comfy' they are.

Any thoughts on those specific shoes?

And thanks again for the responses.

Got the Gel Game 4...props to TW for fast turnaround. I haven't played with them yet but the fit and feel right out of the box is amazing. Very excited to try them on the court.
