I'm on my 3rd pair, and durability has been an issue. With 60-70 hours of play they are "destroyed", a lot of holes on the seams. I'll probably buy another brand, still no sure on which onem due to sizing (in BR we don't get all half sizes, so that can be an issue, and is the reason why Asics is a no-go for me here). Will probably try the Lacoste line when my last one needs replacing (proably around August).

I like the look of this new version posted above, but 1) really surprised by the $149 USD pricing, and 2) not sure how it compares to the new solution speed since they're both so lightweight. Question for the thread - how good is this shoe? I rely on my speed to help me win points, but I also need stability to feel confident setting up for shots, and the solution speeds I'm currently trying just feel a little flimsy in that regard. Is it worth the risk and price to try? I like the court ff3, but find the breathability and heaviness on those to be a little much. I'm 11.5 US w/ Nikes and Asics, but do I need to order these a half size up? Sounds like some are saying that could be an issue, and I had an issue with my 11.5 Lacoste AG LT-Ultras being waaayyyy too snug (first time I experienced this). Thanks!

I find my Jet Mach 3 in US size 8 true to size length-wise. I wear Asics Gel Res 8/9 and Nikes in size 8 as well. In my experience there is no need to size up.

IMO true to size for a snug yet comfortable fit (how I prefer my shoes). Haven't tried them half a size up so can't say how the fit for that size is.

You can usually find previous colorways on sale. Bought mine 60% off.

I’ve got a wide foot and I still just wear the jet Mach 3 regular fit in 13.
When measured I’m a 12.5 wide but a 13 reg fits me great in this line. I’ll echo what another poster said about seams falling apart. However the soles last for a long time. It’s already a speedy shoe so it’s hard for me to tell when it bottoms out.
