Nike Air Zoom Prestige - anyone?

#2
Early try on feel that they are very similar to Vapor Tour 9.5. The Sole is identical pattern, which I like because it works extremely well on Synthetic Grass, just the right amount of grip.The fit is a little tighter and narrower than the 9.5s which were always generous in width. Main difference I noticed straight away is the heel has a higher lift. One reason I loved the 9.5 was the super low to the ground feel in not only the forefoot but a low heel as well. Have yet to test in game play.
These are a budget 9.5. Nike should have just continued with the 9.5 as were the most loved tennis shoe ever.

Yeah but before that the 9's were the most beloved shoe ever. Before that there was the V that was the best shoe ever.... the X will be fine and the Prestige is here to mop up the rest of Vapor customers

I have worn these about 5 times. They are very similar to the vapor's but something is off. They are not as soft and not as comfortable. As far as durability goes, they are starting to wear out on where my shoes normally wear out. However, after 5 times I didn't expect to notice any wear yet. All in all I picked them up for $34.99 at a nike outlet so I can't complain. I probably would not be willing to pay more than $50 for a pair.

I have worn through the outsole after about 20 hours of play, over the course of 3 months. I'm satisfied for the price paid, but I would not buy them again.

I would say very similar to Vapor 9.5s in a less costly package as they commonly go on sale. I have played on mine for many hours and I find wear to be similar to Vapors, however the soles do seem a little stiffer. All in all if the Vapor X's aren't for you and you miss the 9.5's these are a good option.

I picked up mine for around $70 which I'm happy with as my size (M14) is tough to ever find on sale. I would buy them again but recommend some slight break in prior to court play just to be sure they are ready and comfy. (9.5s never needed this).
