Anybody use light shoes for matches but something with a little more cushion in practice?
Oh hard courts the Resolutions hurt the balls of my feet (only in matches, not in practice), plus there is heel slippage (e.g. I ended on my but on my second FH attempt with a radar gun, although my first one was still the hardest among six of us that day)Ok, I found the Solution Speed fit me better because I have narrow flat feet, the Resolution hurt my arch.
Barricade clay shoes have nice deep wide herringbone and clog much less than the Nikes if there is a lot of clay on the court or it's very wet.Clay version for sure, as some of us here believe that they have the deepest herringbone profile!

The Nike clay shoes are great for dry or dusty courts or if there is not so much clay on the court.
I can't use the normal Barricade. I use the 2015. Much, much better and full deep herringbone.I used Barricade 8 (and 5) and they:
a) Didn't have full herringborne pattern (not in the arch)
b) Gave me plantar fasciatis
c) A younger than me TW salesperson told me that "Barricades are for fast young, very athletic players, not for us" Why? B/c they are clunky
Vapors lose support for me in weeks, I'm heavy 105kgs/230 LBs at 6'2" and I...used to move aggresively
Also if you use the full sole herringbone that probably helps as well.I can't use the normal Barricade. I use the 2015. Much, much better and full deep herringbone.
My fault for not specifying.
No worries, I think all the companies make a good product and it is up to us to figure out the best ones for us based on our body and the surface we play on.Also if you use the full sole herringbone that probably helps as well.
Listen Jolly no point for me wasting more of your time buddy
1. I've seen your videos and if I remember correctly you are more advanced and younger.
2. My self I got periodically burned trying to listen to people and as such trying a new version of Barricades that is "lighter", but as I got fooled twice already, I'll pass from now on, also b/c durability (and money) is not a big concern for me (the 6 months sole warranty on Lunars being good enough for me + the exceptional warranty we get from stores such as TW)
Best of luck b/c you are master of tennis (I'll try to refrain trying to help/answer you in the future lol).
I was always top student in high school in physics, hence I knew about inertia (F=ma; meaning the heavier one is and the more aggressive one moves the more friction one needs to be able to change directions/e.g. turn).No worries, I think all the companies make a good product and it is up to us to figure out the best ones for us based on our body and the surface we play on.
I honestly had no clue how much difference real clay shoes could make, now I can't imagine playing without them.
I want to get a pair of Ubersonic clay and try them too.
