I've been a lurker on this thread for a while now and thought I would give a review on the Vapor Pro 2's as I've had them for a little over a month. I was really anticipating these so I ordered them the day they were up.
I'm a self rated 4.0 player and speed is my weapon. I'm an aggressive mover so I go through shoes rather fast and usually opt for more durable shoes. I learned this the hard way after getting the Vapor Flyknits and burning a hole in the side of them from sliding in the first week.
To give a brief shoe resume' from my first shoe back in 2015 to current:
Lunar Ballistic, Vapor Flyknit, Barricade, Cage 3, Gel Rez 8, FF2, Vapor Cage 4, NXT court Zoom, Court React Vapor NXT and now the Pro 2.
The Vapor Pro 2's really stood out to me for a couple reasons. First the price tag and second it seemed to be a (somewhat) durable speed shoe which is pretty rare. Seeing that slide guard on the side of the shoe was very appealing to me since that's where the majority of my damage comes through on shoes.
I ordered a half size down as I typically do in tennis shoes and they fit well. The stiffness is very apparent and took a solid 2 hitting sessions to loosen up. I had difficulties getting the shoe to "lock in" and what helped me is swapping the laces out for "Lock Laces". I used these on my Cage 4's and they really made a difference.
After a month of using them on different surfaces (outdoor, indoor and clay) they're holding up very well. There's some scrapes/damage on the inside back heel from me dragging my back foot which doesn't surprise me given how much the heel sticks out.
I'm curious how this will be in 6 months but the slide guard and tread are holding up very well.
These aren't for everyone as they're a little stiff and require some tweaking to get it fit my style but overall I'm very happy with them and will eventually buy a clay version too.
Hope this helps someone who is on the fence!
