Shoe fit Question

I've been wearing the Asics Gel Resolution 7 for about a year now and while I like them, they are not the most comfortable court shoes I've had.

I've been looking at the Nike Vapor Cage 4 and Adidas Ubersonic 3 but I have exceptionally flat feet and am worried that these shoes may have too much built-in arch support that may cause a different kind of discomfort for me.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

I'm in the similar boat, I have exceptionally flat, wide feet and no arch so any shoe that has a hard shank as arch support feels like a rock is in my show. I play in Vapor 9/X as well as basketball shoes and they have worked out well for me. I can't comment on the Vapor Cage 4s (planning on getting them tho) but I've tried on the zoom zeros and they worked well, didn't feel the arch and it's more cushioned than the Vapors. I do plan on picking up a pair of zoom zeros. I casually wear the ATC 2020, arch area works out well for me and I plan to put them into my tennis rotation soon.

I haven't tried orthotics as I personally didn't feel like I need them yet but that would be something you need to decide for yourself.

The Gel resolutions are great for my flat feet but they feel so stiff and unforgiving at times.
