Who's got em, how do they fit, what's the verdict?
I got a pair. I normally wear 11.5 and I didn’t size up. Medium width foot. I love the fit, I feel very protected, really good stability. I’m struggling to remember a shoe that I loved right outta the box as much as this one. I literally received my pair, put them on Immediately, taught a lesson and played a set after that. Very comfortable. The start/stop response and first step explosiveness on this shoe is outstanding. There have been several times where I was caught going in the wrong direction and was able to stop, change direction and have a decent to excellent play on the ball (in other shoes the point is over or it is a very timid reply). The breathability is good (I haven’t complained about the shoe running hot). I will get the GP Turbo in every color way that I like.
I appreciate the shoutout to my thread lol. I’ll be watching @J011yroger...Ordered my pair. Will update here when I get them. Hoping they fit my feet better than ZZ did. Loved the cushion on ZZ but my feet were tight and felt pressure nonstop on the sides of the toe (probably coming off SCB had something to do with that too).
There is a thread already with some good info btw:
They seem to be a beefy shoe, compared to the ZZ. The weight scares me, it’s exactly as much as the stycon.I'm thinking that they would be a good shoe for teaching then if I have to play hard I would pop on a pair of vapors or whatever, but after 8 hours on court my dogs are barking.
My toe is not at the end of the shoe. I’ve seen the Agassi inspired color. I like it but I am undecided on that one. But definitely one of the best 3 shoes I’ve ever worn.Thanks for the info. On the fit, since you went tts, is your toe at the end of the shoe, or do you have the "thumbnail's width of room? I just gotta figure out the size I need. Thinking since they are snug and narrow to go up .5 to compensate for my messed up big toe knuckle. Thanks for the info. Just wait till you see the "Agassi-inspired" color coming out this weekend! Awesome looking!
Has anyone tried these and the Zoom Zero's? I've had trouble finding shoes with sufficient forefoot cushioning and I finally found the ZZ's, which work great...and Nike disco'd them. I heard that the Turbo's are meant to replace them?
Well the cushioning is my biggest concern, so I guess I'll give the Turbo a chance when the time comes, but I don't love the sound of everything else. I agree that they could have just updated the ZZ, I don't understand why Nike is so quick to abandon certain shoes but then sticks with others for decades.I had 8 pairs of ZZ and have 2 pairs of Turbos now. I think I said this in a different thread but IMO, the Turbo is a step up in cushioning and sole durability but a step back practically everywhere else for me. I prefer the overall fit and the sock liner snugness of the ZZ and while it is not well ventilated I think the Turbo manages to be even worse. The Turbo performs fine on court and most of my dislikes about it fade into the background once play starts. I just wish they had put the Turbo cushioning in a ZZ 2.0 and just improved the ventilation and added a heel pull tab to help get the shoe on.
interested in trying the turbo. ive worn the ZZ for some time, and just got some cage 4s on clearance sale. the cage 4s have been my favorite thus far, the bootie makes em fit like a glove. feel like tennis shoes might finally be heading in the right direction?
I imagine with orthotics this space would be even smaller so unfortunately these shoes are a no-no for me...Very comfy tennis shoes. To me, the toe box isn't narrow or small. Those areas are fine.... It's that there isn't a lot of room vertically for your toes. Not sure if that makes sense. The distance between the insole and the top of the shoe is short. I find that I don't have much room to wiggle my big toe. I've gotten used to it and it's not painful or uncomfortable. It's just not spacious.
I have read most people have ordered half size up, but will the length be too long for your feet?
I have troubles with Asics Court FF, my regular size is too tight but half size up is too long.
Many thanks and have a good weekend!
What country? Not seeing any reduction on my USA site.For my foot, they fit short if i get my regular size. Going a half size up made them fit perfectly with no surplus length.
NOTE: Not sure what the sitiation is like for other parts of the world, but the Nike donestic site here is having a pretty big sale and there are huge reductions on these shoes atm.
