    Toes going numb while playing in new shoes

    Played again tonight and laced the Nike’s as loose as possible. Felt better at first, but within 20 minutes of warm up... numb toes. Went back to my solecourt boosts and played great in total comfort. Looks like I just plain bought the wrong size :cautious: SCB are 11.5 and always felt pretty...

    Toes going numb while playing in new shoes

    Yeah, I'll try lacing them super loose next hit out, but I'm not confident that's going to work. I haven't tightened them at all on the lower hoops, just at the top.

    Toes going numb while playing in new shoes

    It's purely the discomfort whilst playing that's the issue. Never had this issue with any shoes previously, especially not my old Solecourt Boosts which I may be going back to. They are a wide shoe, a bit too wide almost but better than having numb toes! I have about a full finger's worth of...

    Toes going numb while playing in new shoes

    Yeah I think you're right in that it's too much pressure somewhere, but I can't pinpoint the cause. When I walk around in them, they feel fine. I've tried wearing thin socks and thorlo's and the problem is the same. It's all my toes that go numb when I'm playing, but particularly the outer ones...

    Toes going numb while playing in new shoes

    Anyone ever experienced numb toes while breaking in new shoes? My Nike Tech Challenge 20s, [finally able to put some court hours into them after an extended lockdown], are giving my feet major grief. About 5.5 hours of play so far. They feel like they fit fine, until I start playing, at...

    Zverev changed his forehand slightly and it pays off!

    No, that one on match point looked about the same though. Absolutely annihilated it.

    Zverev changed his forehand slightly and it pays off!

    Hit a 175km/h forehand with minimal effort vs. Schwartzman It does feel like a matter of time before he irons out the kinks and starts rolling everyone

    Any shirts wick moisture as well as Nike Dry Fit

    The Champion ones are solid. I just stocked up on a few of the double dry shirts which are comfy, perform well and the colours stand up to washes.

    Federer's Biggest Career Mistake as reviewed in 2020

    Surely he was handcuffed and conflicted by the Nadal problem for many years. A more resilient backhand was a must to beat Nadal, but changing frames weakened his forehand. And I think Federer knew that would be the case before he made the switch. Hence not doing it for so long. Traded potency...

    The Greatest match of 21st century: Uploaded in full

    Not many players play their best ever match and end up the loser on the same night, but I think Verdasco did here.

    Love Fred Stolle's commentary, not only on this match but in general Packed with insights and technical knowledge In stark contrast to his co-commentator Peter Donegan who just blasts off the first cliche that pops into his head
