I've got wider than average (E) feet. I like light, minimal shoes, but I also like them to be sturdy under the arch. If I can put my fist inside the shoe and collapse the arch I'm not interested. (Shoes these days all have cut-out shanks, which makes no sense to me, but there it is.)
I like roomy toe-boxes, the wider and more "square", instead of pointed, the better.
I like higher than average heels but low to the ground in the forefoot.
I'm an all-court player and don't need tremendous lateral stability, but I do appreciate better than average cushioning, or my knees do rather. But I also don't like an overly cushioned shoe where I don't feel like I can feel the ground.
I play on hardcourt and acrylic and don't require super grippy soles.
Much appreciate any suggestions or comments about any of these shoes you've tried.
i tried the defier misoul, and it was definitely a clunker at 16.x ounces. i haven;t tried the others though. but, nike is having a sale on 25% off clearance, and the nike vapor tour is one of them i believe.
the sale ends today
