Anyone have any confirmations of 2019 models of shoes? Would have expected to hear some rumors by now if these were coming out in January.

Asics Gel Res 8?
Vapor Xs, Xs Max, X.5, XI, 11?
Cage 4s?
Eclipsion 3?
Wave Exceed 4 (for the US market)

I was also told that prince t22lites would come out with more colors,, hopefully an eta is now known,,, maybe, hopefully,,, but prov not.. haaa
 
New Balance's replacement for the 996 was in the newest issue of Tennis Magazine. Revised upper and they're introducing Fresh Foam to the line IIRC. I also saw a kind of bizarre looking K Swiss model.

Yeah, I just saw one of my questions answered - no new GR for 2019... but there's an 'update' to it?! I don't get it... GR 7.5???

I also asked in another post, if there, in 2019, would be a new nike shoe or just new colors for Vapor X, Cage 3 and Zoom zero ...
 
Thanks for the article attachment. I'm REALLY liking those K-Swiss Areo Knits! The men's color sounds very promising. Also digging the New Balance too

Any idea when we expect to see any of the shoes pictured? I'm guessing next spring?

"Spring 2019" probably really means January. The New Balances look enticing, too.... but I'm a Nike man! :eek:

I get you. I'm a Nike guy too (I'm 42 and grew up in Agassi's heyday. Had all his shoes and they were great). But after seeing the other thread about the durability of the Zeros, that is making me SERIOUSLY reconsider a different brand.

Eclipsion 2 was so bad,, Yonex should make Eclipsion 3 right away. yonex should redeem itself as soon as possible

If you like a KSwiss shoe pick up a few of them. Mike Bryan is wearing Asics at ATP Finals. This could spell the end of KSwiss tennis

Yeah. None of the current Nike offerings work for me. :-( Vapor X fit is off. Same with Cage. And the Zeros are good in fit, but not the construction. I'm currently begrudgingly wearing a pair of NB 996v3s - but they were free. No forefoot cushioning, fit is a tad tight, but doable. Ankle collar chafes me like no other unless I have socks that'll cover the ankle. But there are no 'distractions' inside the shoe (like seams or misplaced arch support).

TW just kicked out a big, brand teaser for the next gen of New Balance shoes... I hope we get the Fresh Foam Lavs soon! But it might be Calendar 2019 until we can buy them.

We can only wish buddy. Considering they didn't even release the Cerise ATC IV in the USA, I would say our chances are slim for a new Agassi retro. I for one want a new pair of Challenge LWPs.
Hi friend, a few years ago (as can also be seen from the forum niketalk), it was rumored Nike Air Alarm or LWP, but then it seems that it was all frozen ...

Wore my new Vapor X clay courts UK 9.5/US 10.5 for the first time today; they are wider in the toe box than my Eclipsion 2s o_O:eek: UK 9.5/US 10, although not as well padded generally.

They’re bricks. That may be why.
it is great for ATP Professional players with need for big time support for their insane side to side movement, it is Awsome shoes. but for 2-3 times a week playing amateurs with tired legs, it is not their cup of tea.

New colors of the Eclipsion, Sonicages dropped. Sale on previous colors. New Fusion Rev 3s definitely look interesting...

Switched to Gel Resolutions a few years ago after being a long time Barricade wearer. (my Agassi Nike years I wouldn't count, as being a complete Fanboy he could've worn wooden clogs with a Swoosh on the side & I'd have still bought them!) Won't have anything else now except my GRs, Asics are just the best out there.

Nothing beats barricades boost stability and lock down. Asics are lighter and feel softer but not even close with boosts cushioning. You are just on a honeymoon period :)

NBTennis's IG has some cloaked Fresh Foam tennis shoes. I guess 12/3 is the launch date, but we get a "preview" tomorrow per TW.
