Hi guys, do you think the outsoles of these Nike Air Zoom GP Turbos will work on red, European clay?
Last clay season, I ordered Nike Air Zoom Vapor X shoes in the clay version but by accident received the allcourt/hardcourt outsole version. I decided to just go with it and to my surprise, I have never performed better on clay than with those shoes. Felt more confident than ever in sliding, and I was faster, never really lost footing which I've definitely experienced with shoes I've worn in the past years.
For this season, I bought Yonex PC Eclipsion 3 clay shoes but I'd like a another, different pair as a second pair of tennis shoes. That's why I'm looking at the GP Turbos. I see there's also a clay version of these shoes but the colorway of those look really clownesque to me. Don't know if I wanna run around in those. I know performance is by far the most important factor in tennis shoes but I won't be happy walking around in ugly shoes.
I asked the same question to someone I know, who worked in a shop before where he also sold tennis shoes. He said they will work on red clay but not on artificial grass.
I'm interested to hear more advice and opinions on whether this outsole pattern would work well on red, European clay.
