I have not tried any of this "minimalist" shoes but I am not sure they can handle a lateral stop after full speed, the shock on the heel is a main concern and maybe is just me but it seems like there could be some lateral slippage between the foot and the shoe. Even for stops while running forward I have a feeling like they could hurt your toes more than normal tennis shoes.

I guess that the level at what you play or your playing style has a lot to do too. I mean if you do not run for sure you will not have to stop and definitely do not have the risk to roll over your ankle.
