Does anybody know if TW will sell the new line of Yonex tennis shoes?
Thanks banter. I am expecting them!
later in this month. If you play on clay I saw the yellowish model for clay courters, just beautiful.
I usually play in hard courts because there arent many clay courts where I live, just some in clubs and hotels. If I lived In Argentina, my fathers country, I would find clay courts easily and buy these yellow ones that you refer to.
Have you used Yonex shoes?Are they good?
Have a local Yonex Dealer 10 min away.mine I should have by next week,picking up the AO white navy top as well.What a match Between Hewitt and Nalby Hey.[/IMG]Warranty or not there coming home.Matches only?Post pics as soon as they arrive for the shoe junkiesDaliFedFace
Lucky you! Tell him to open a franchise in San Juan, Puerto Rico. He has no competition here. Just kidding
Anyone know if Yonex will be making new shoes for each Grand Slam like Nike is or are they just making 2, the clay and the normal one that Hewitt will be wearing for the whole year?
The clay ones are yellow and black!
These are up elsewhere and the gold and black looks pretty cool.
Yep, are you thinking what im thinking B1?
"You wanna die?"
Hey look what I just got.Nice and wide not stiff at all,deep tread design.Tongue could use a little more padding.Nice and light.I'll take em out for a test drive Wed.Beauitful in appearance.Enjoy.Shirts are stunning as well.
Enjoy, any questions just ask.And No I'm not trying there raw egg theory.lol
The cowboy girl looks much better. Lucky you!
Give a brief review on the shoes when you can.
Hey Bori That Cowboy Girl is Andy Roddick's Wife.Brook Iddecker I believe.Tennis warehouse should Display them like this as well.
I'll Give a Mini review by Sat.Funny met 2 players tonight at the club,Both have had 4 or 5 pairs each of the Previous colors Red/Blue.Both gave it 10"s.Promising.Lucky A-Rod sigh........
Bucket that Yellow shoes is the Ugliest yonex shoe ever in history of tennis. but that Gold one is pretty cool however.
There is no difference in the shoes itself other than the color,,,am i correct ?
No 6 month warranty...
Hey mate, can you tell me how the shirt fits, is it tight fitting or does it run small?
Also for the shoe, if you can compare to to Court Ballistecs of Vapor Tours, how is the sizing and length? Is it true to size?
The photos @T-W & H-bird clearly show nubby soles on the yellow model but T-W isn't listing them as a clay shoe. If they're the new color for clay, I guess I'll stock up on the red/whites for $10 less and no need for Pepto to prevent puking while lacing up. The gold ones are fine!
If you read up on the TW description of the yellow/black new Yonex, it's mentioned a couple of times it's for clay.
Finally, after the 306s, Yonex makes an awesome looking shoe.
Definitely looks great, does anyone know if Yonex will be making any more tennis shoes this year?
Past history Yonex men's color schemes
If Yonex holds true to past history, they intro 2 color schemes for the HC model & 1 for clay per year. I have only seen the gold HC and yellow (gag me) clay versions so there should be one more in the pipeline soon, maybe to match shirt colors? BTW Torrance knows how to treat product loyalty better than anyone in the biz! A shout-out to Yonex Consumer Services!
Excuse my ignorance, but who is Torrance?
The new Yonex shoes r on TW
lol I think he's talking about Torrance, CA. Yonex USA's headquarters. I've visited the place plenty of times and those guys just love their jobs, super nice people. Easy trip for me when I visit my friends in the city. (I live in SD)
Hey Your name!^^^ Shirt I went with the XL tried the Large on.I'm buy no means a big guy but the large felt tight around the underarms.
I found no issues with the size,my usual 11 fits bang on.Low arch support,Wide in the Toebox.Under padded tongue ala 2k's.
enough padding in the ankles not as much as the 2.3's Low to the ground feel.Still giving them time to break in a bit.Might take em out Friday for a light knock.
Yonex should've made the material that protects your big toe alot more durable.I'll be shreddin a hole on hard stops in no time.Leather isn't going to suffice.I tell you, it's nice not to have a Uni-tongue.These badboys are light I'm sure i'll be at top speed.Haven't tested the Traction or Support yet but feels like they're not going to buckle like a cheap shoe.Ventilation looks good with the mesh Tongue and preforations that run along the side should allow the 307's to breathe well.The sole has some real nice deep grooves that look real beefy,I like that.
Do my best to give a more in depth mini review once i have at least 2 hrs on them.They are Stunning.Post back Sat Cheers
Cheers for a nice detailed review.
For the Yonex shirt how is the shirt sizing for waist and chest?
Torrance is Yonex HQ
Thanks for back-up E! They do their job well.
Gold color looks really fancy. what if they mistake you for a millionare ?
I think otherwise.
No, the yellow/black is for clay courts, TW just made a mistake in not putting the CL and the gold is for HC.
I am not sure about the results of playing with a clay shoes on HC, ask the Europeans they have the clay courts and HC and they may be able to tell you something.
Indeed! I wished they would do special deals for us recreational players, I'd buy a few racquets and a bag in a heartbeat.
I asked Yonex guys about that. Playing with clay shoes on hard courts. Only difference is that the Tread or dimples on clay shoes will wear OUT really quick on hard courts, they said. It is designed to grab the court on soft Clay courts but it will just wear out on hard courts. That is the only difference according to them.
i just purchased sht 307 in us 10 ,it felt a bit loser. i've tried the 9.5 one but it cramping my toes, will cause blisters or not?
Wow the Yellow / balck looks beautiful! does any one have a real life picture?
Hi 1st seed! I bought my first Yonex shoes today. Ive used Nike, Adidas, Prince, Asics and now Yonex. I hope they fit well, my feet are difficult to please. Hope to get the apparel later on! Thank you for the review!
I like the build and the flash of the Yonex shoes, but I just can't drop over $100 on a shoe without a 6 month warranty. I'm on the court too much. Will the "smaller" brands, like Yonex & Diadora, jump on the warranty bandwagon?
Thanks for the info Fedace.
I am with the 307 Bluesilver and an old 306 red. For sure the next one will be the yellow ones.
Looser?? hard to understand , but It needs a break in and it may cause you some blisters, but after 4-6 hours it is the best.
For the shirt sizing, in regard to waste and chest, is it tighter than normal? Would the large be the same length as the extra large?
