Looking for a new speed shoe...

Looking for a light hard court shoe to play matches in. Medium to slightly narrow feet. Not a slider. Have worn Asics Court FF originals, Solution Speed 3’s, Vapor 9’s, and Zoom Zero’s for this purpose in the past. Heel lock is critical - left Achilles is very touchy. Have been considering the Solution Speed FF2’s and Ubersonic 4’s. Appreciate any feedback on those or other ideas. Thanks!

Can recommend the Speed FF2s as long as you're not looking for light and speedy vs bulkier/stable. The Tennis pro doc did a good video recently comparing the new speeds to the new Ubers and that seems to be your top 2. I think the Ubers might be a bit lower to the ground/wide but the forefoot cushioning better on the Speeds. I haven't played in the Ubers, though.

Thanks for the feedback @JGads.

I am in fact looking for a light and fast shoe. See I’ve been mostly wearing a pair of Cage 4’s.. They’ve mostly been great. But they’re just a little heavier than I would like for game day. Thus the search.

I think I have a similar foot profile as you and have the nb 996v4. They're super light but not much cushion. Like the shoe overall, think it's the lightest on the market

LOL! Doesn’t sound like they’re for me then. Thanks again @JGads!
You're lucky in that you say your feet are medium to narrow. This really opens up the options. I've been on a huge shoe struggle trying to find the best of all words solution for my strange, wider than normal, high-arched feet. Have tried on a ton of shoes, and bought a few. The best for me in the last year have been the Speed FF2s and the Mizuno Exceed 4s. Both of these options aren't particularly wide actually - especially not the Speeds - so they may accommodate you too. I've just been able to get away with them because there is some give to the uppers.
