Clay Court Shoes
 
Does anybody know a great clay court shoe?
FYI my foot is a little bit wide so I can't do those very narrow shoes.
Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks in advance

I think you will like the Yonex 308 clay. Other colors are coming out in the near future.

You could make some Nike Vapor 9 IDs with a clay sole, but they are a little narrow. TW usually carries some clay Nike shoes in the spring, so look out for the CB 4.3 clay.

Hey Al....are you still building condos in Palm Beach?

308 are really in a league by itself, since my switch from ballistec i can move better and faster with better fit.

Is the Yonex 308 wide fit or about normal fit?

The Vapor 9 iD also come in a wide version........the Babolat clays shoes are also solid.

Yonex 308 has the best clay sole...

Regular discounted Nike 2k11s or 2k12s work great for me on clay.

The GR4 clay or now the GR5- I purchased from TWE and the Gel Solution clay from TWE. The Gel Solution is very light and extremely well ventilated for play in Florida or hot weather. You should avoid any hard court shoe that has a clay sole stuck on it like a CB, it's overkill. Pick a light weight shoe.

It's a color not released yet. It's stadium gray/white/total crimson. Also I'm sure the court ballistics will have a clay version as well. Also any vapor 9 ID can be customized with clay soles.

On clay? That's a shame if so, I've only used them for a total of about 6 hours on clay so I can't tell as re longer term wear. I for sure know they'd only last me about 12 hours on hardcourts, the rubber is very soft and not "true xdr" at all, but clay is much easier on a shoe.

Not at all. 2k has a traditional herringbone pattern that is softer. Vapor has a similar outsole but a little different tread pattern, still pretty soft, and CB is a thick, sturdy rubber.
