Nike Air Zoom Vapor Pro - Clay vs All Court outsole


New User
I'm playing 80% of the time on clay and 20% on hard courts.
Should I just go for the clay outsole or is it not recommended to use the clay court outsole on hard courts?


I wouldn't. I used clay shoes for hard courts for a bit, because I was out of hard court shoes. The sole is softer I think, so the tread came off instantly. Every hour I played, I could see more and more tread disappear.

You really need one dedicated shoe for clay courts and one for hard. IMO

If you play that much on clay, definitely get a pair of dedicated clay shoes (and don’t use them on hard). They will last a long time and it makes a big difference IMO.
