I am little bias towards Nike tennis shoes since they are all I have used.
I used to have the Ballistics before I switched over to the Breathes.
Best shoes all around and very comfortable.
I have a pair of the Air Max breathe free shown up above, 2k10 (current game shoes) and another breathe cage 2 coming in soon.

Ok thanks.
Iv'e used the Cb1.3s and i liked them but those little things fell off and the sole got really smooth after a month.
The Breathe cage 2s lasted longer but they killed my feet.
I really like the b5s but im using geniuses right now and they are probably my favorite


New Balance. I'm a toe dragger and they last longer than Nikes BFs, are comfortable and durable, and frequently go on sale for around $40. Whats there not to love. They look pretty decent too.

holy gigantic shoes batman.

I usually play with CB 1.3 or barricade V depending on what I feel like that day. I wanna try CB 2.3, Vapor 6, or barricade 6 I just cant decide which.


Yonex 304s. Lightweight - seriously lightweight compared to Barricades or even Breathe Free 2s. Comfortable for me. Good traction, but not very durable.


I've played with barricades for a few years and would have picked them....

... but this most recent pair of Nike Breathe Cage II's seem to have all of the performance of the barricades in a lighter, cheaper, more breathable shoe.
