    Nike Cage 3

    @Phantasm interesting that you mention the blisters. Played about 4 hours day...singles and doubles. Definitely felt like the blisters were coming! I double as well. I also noticed I was scuffing the toe up pretty good, and the cage part looks like it got beat up too - like it might even rip...

    Nike Cage 3

    Played in Cage 3 for the first time today. I had to size up .5. For me it is like .5 up is .25 too big and regular size is .25 too small. If that makes sense. So i'd rather have a little extra room than have a shoe that definitely feels too small. Anyway, put in three hours of singles today and...

    Best Cushioned Tennis Shoe?

    @CHillTennis thanks for the response. I did own a pair of Cage 2. While I did think the cushioning was quite adequate they did feel a bit to clunky (and also hot) for me. I did just pull the trigger on the Cage 3’s in my normal size. May have to send back and go up half size, as others have...

    Best Cushioned Tennis Shoe?

    For me super comfy. Love that thick tongue. Good for about a set, maybe two (singles) but after that just not enough cushioning underneath for me. GREAT shoes for just unlacing and lounging :) Thanks for your input!

    @old man stringer 67 if you’re 67 then - physically speaking at least - I’m sure we are the same age. Thanks for your input. Price doesn’t matter when it comes to playing or not playing. :) thanks again.

    Best Cushioned Tennis Shoe?

    @imajica77 thank you for your input. The cushioning just becomes more and more of a factor with my old joints lol Only heard good things about the Yonex shoes - and agree with you that it’s all about foot type/shape. Have never owned Yonex but tried on in store. Wanted to like them, because of...

    Best Cushioned Tennis Shoe?

    Hi Folks! I’m asking opinions from others on best cushioned Tennis shoe. Approaching 40 years of age, cushioning is becoming more paramount as I can feel the difference in cushioning of shoes in the joints after a session of hitting/playing. Want to play as long as I can and - while i’m...

    Nike Vapor X

    Probably between 20 - 30 hours singles on the X's now. Looking at the sole today - I just can't believe how much they have held up. Full tread pattern looking good. Wear zones look less plastic-y - like a softer rubber, but I'm amazed at how well they have held up thus far. They are not...

    Nike Vapor X

    Approx 20 hrs of singles play on X’s. Could not be more pleased and impressed with sole durability. Starting to wear a little bit, but not much at all. What I do feel is happening is that as the outsole has worn slightly from play, it has gotten less “slippery.” At this point I imagine I...
