You beat me to the post..... @innoVAShaun, you are a pic posting wizard!!
Wondered what people knew about these?
Saw them on another tennis site.
The description calls it a "mid-price" addition to the energized line......listed at $130 on that site.
More expensive than the Axilus and is $130 mid-price these days? HOLY COW!

Is this the shoe Reilly Opelka developed and is wearing? I always noticed his new Fila shoes had a big "F" logo instead of the word "Fila"
Anyone know this?
These shoes do look good.

The all white speed serves are so stylish, can’t wait to get a pair. If it doesn’t work well on the court, I would wear these casually. How have people been finding Fila shoe sizes, say compared to Nike, adidas or asics?

I was able to try these on in my size at the shop today. They are definitely roomy as mentioned in the description. The width felt great throughout the shoe in stock form even with the laces fully tightened. They feel very lightweight compared to my Torneos. The out soles are a bit thinner than I expected and I guess that is why they are backed by a warranty.

Once I put my custom orthotics in, my feet within the shoes dropped pretty low to the ground. I had the same bad luck as I did with my SFX3s where I would end up with too much room all around. I'm sure my toes would move around, and my heels would slip if I were to imitate tennis movements. I wasn't able to try a half size lower, but I would consider pulling the trigger to give these a try.

But heavier than the Flys and SFX3 though right? (Of the same sizes)
This is what their website has:

Speed Serve: 13.0 Ounces (Size 9)

Torneo AG: 14.1 Ounces (Size 9)

Torneo Clay: 13.2 Ounces (Size 9)

B.Fly 3 AG: 10.9 Ounces (Size 7)

B.Fly 3 Clay: 14.3 Ounces (Size 9.5)

No longer carry SFX3

I'm digging Kwon Soon-woo's pink Speedserves
I like the white/red combo. Caught my eye when Troy was wearing them on a recent review. If a truly wide fit as advertised then I'd be game to try these, but some cushioning has to be there.
