Thread: shoe problems?

  1. #1

    shoe problems?

    i have went through so many shoes its ridiculous
    right now i have the adidas barricade limited ed. stars and i've only had them for a week and a half and im already having to send them back for the sole worn out. granted i do play 5 days a week. i also do slide a lot but i play on hardcourt. im number one for my school so if anyone knows some shoes that have great sole and are hard to wear out. i would love to know. i previously owned the babolat all court III and went through those also quick.

    The Babolat Propulse is supposedly 40% more durable than the Adidas Barricade according to some testing in europe. I would give them a try, what do you have to lose:

    Are you serious? You went through a pair of Barricades in 5 days? Honestly, I think you're really sliding/running or taking too many steps that are unnecessary. Slow it down a bit even if you're #1 on your HS tennis team because I'm sure a pair of Barricades will not go down in 5 days.

    Exclamation Another thing..........

    Another thing you may want to consider is, if you are wearing out the rubber on a tennis shoe in 5 days, then what are you doing to your ligaments in your ankles, knees and hips. You might want to really learn proper footwork for HC and leave the sliding to clay. BoL
