Seems the 3.5 didn’t get the fanfare the 3.0 got and is getting scrapped, not to mention how it was barely available

For me since Mizuno changed the Tour Exceed so much going to v5 as to be a different shoe the Rush Pro may be my new Standard Shoe.

Though I really wish it had a padded tongue :confused: ...

Rush pro 3.5 is my standard, and part of why I like it is the thin tongue.

Got them yesterday in my normal US13 size.The fit is almost identical to the 3.5 but the uppers are more flexible and better quality so you get the impression that they are roomier than before.The new lacing system is much better and hugs better your upper foot.Walking around they are super comfortable almost like my Nimbus 23.They are plush and with good forefoot cushion,although BS5 was the best ever imo in that area. Toebox is wide,straight and with good height with the soft material helping to stretch up your toes without hurting a bit.Very happy with them,it is one of the rare times a manufacturer produces a better successor shoe and doesn't destroy an already great product.In the pictures you can see the 3.5 and 4.0 insoles which are identical.I use my orthotics which are pretty thick by the way.

Love this shoe. Switched to it from the K-Swiss Hypercourt Express/Supreme. Superior in basically every way imaginable, other than immediate out-of-box comfort (took one play session to break in).

Just have to bump this thread, as a kudos to Wilson and their 6-month outsole warranty on the Rush Pro 4.0's.

I bought my original pair from a local shop on 8/23/22 and have played them an average of 2 days per week ever since, so about 12-15 hours per month, totaling probably 60-70 hours, almost exclusively on hard courts. At about the 45-50 hour mark, I started breaking into the mid-foam around the edges of the toes and also towards the outside of the heel pad, and as of today, here's what they look like:
After a quick call to my local shop to retrieve the receipt, I completed Wilson's online warranty claim (page link), including attaching the receipt and above photos, and immediately got an acknowledgement email saying that the claim had been received and that I would be contacted by a rep regarding the claim within 5-7 business days. Well, it only took 8 minutes for the first rep to confirm she had forwarded my submission onward for review, and in just about 1 hour after that, my claim has been accepted and a discount code good at Wilson.com for the full MSRP of the shoe had been issued. So inside the same day I have a brand new pair on their way, free ground shipping. Absolutely top-notch RMA experience with Wilson!

TL;DR - As an aside, I've had almost nothing but a great experience with this shoe. Even as the outsole has worn down, they really haven't lost their grip and are still very much playable, although I can tell after about 60 hours the mid-sole foam has probably been compressed enough that I won't be able to play hard in them for much longer and still get the kind of cushioning I need for the balls of my feet and knees. Overall, still an excellent shoe. I do have to ask, though, is 60-70 hours a normal amount of time versus how long most of you guys take to blow through a pair of shoes? I'd wager that I'm a harsher specimen, as I'm just under 200 pounds, can still move pretty well and pivot pretty hard when I do so (as is evidenced by the wear under the toes). Just curious to gauge others' feedback on life span of the Rush Pro 4.0's, and other shoes in general. Thanks!

@Trip I love these shoes as well. I've gone through probably a dozen pairs and have never had a problem with warranty replacement on any of them. They fit my feet really well but don't last all that long. When I'm healthy and moving well, I get between 3-4 months before the outsole wears through. It wears out about a month faster than an Asic Gel Res. It is still the shoe I am currently wearing.

I got a pair of Rush Pro 3 Blades. Love'em overall. Comfy out of the box. Fast and supportive.

2 questions:
1.) How breathable are the Rush Pro 4s? My only complaint about the 3's is they seem to hold in sweat.
2.) Any major difference between the 3's and the 4's?

Not much difference in breathability but the 4 is roomier everywhere and more plush everywhere.Excellent shoe,have 3 pairs I rotate and I'm super satisfied !
