    Recently moved from the Breathe Cage II to CB 2.3 and my knees are just killing me. Granted its not the warmest weather outside but typically don't feel brittle out on the court.

    The biggest difference I can see is the use of Lunarlon in the CB 2.3 in place of the Zoom Air in the forefoot.

    Outside of the recent issue I can see why the 2.3's are so popular, just wondering if anyone else felt there was less forefoot cushioning after the move to Lunarlon as well, thanks.

    I think the 2.3 forefoot is less cushioned than the Cages. However, I just think it's the shoe's DNA and not a Lunarlon issue. The Vapors have a Lunarlon forefoot and they feel completely different from CBs.

    Your knee problems could be a combination of the shoe switch, the cushioning, the cooler weather - not just solely a shoe-switch problem.

    Another note, zoom air doesn't compress like Lunarlon. I think it's actually a firmer support than the Lunarlon.
