I really dislike these shoes. I would say the Ballistec

I really dislike these shoes. I would say the Ballistec 4.3 is a far superior of a shoe if comparing shoes with 6 month warranty. If you're looking for comfort and don't mind spending $130 with no return, the Zoom Vapor has superior comfort to both. As for the Air Max Cage, the heel wore out faster than the forefoot. I was very displeased with the plastic top piece. The more you break the shoes in, the fit continues to get wider. You end up having to lace the shoe tighter and the cage starts to dig into your foot. Not a big fan. My advice is to spend the extra money for the Ballistec's - better comfort, performance, and durability.

This is a great shoe. It's an exact cross of my favorite

This is a great shoe. It's an exact cross of my favorite shoe, the Vapor 9 Tours, and the Ballistec 4.3's, meaning it has a comfy running shoe feel, but it's also very sturdy and durable. The Vapors lack a little bit of sturdiness and maybe don't last as long as I'd like being a club player, and the CB 4.3 are too bulky and sturdy. So this shoe is a perfect compromise. A perfect morph of the two best selling Nike shoes. Great job. Ventilation is nice as well. This is my new shoe of choice. And mind you I love the Vapors, but the soles are not durable or as cushioned as these. But the Vapors have the most comfy feel all around. So I'm going to rate these the same as the Vapors. They both get a 4 out of 5 stars from me. Great job Nike.

Very comfortable shoes with about a 15 minute break

Very comfortable shoes with about a 15 minute break in period. I've had many pairs of Vapors and Court Ballistecs and these almost seem like a hybrid of those two shoes. They do run a tad large but I bought the size I usually do and they fit fine. I don't think it would be possible for me to go down a half size.

I like my tennis shoes tight and so I ordered a 9.5

I like my tennis shoes tight and so I ordered a 9.5 instead of my usual 10. The length is barely enough, and it feels like the ball of my foot doesn't line up quite right. Hopefully my orthodics and a couple more hours of break-in will fix that. Other than that I do like the shoe a lot, as it fits and feels like the old legendary Breathe Cage, especially in the toe box. Improvements would be the uppers which are very similar to the Breath Free 2K10's, they are extremely light like the Vapor, and the traction is deep with some give like the Ballistics. These shoes have sweet cosmetics and the pictures don't do them justice as they look really sporty on the foot, and the Air Max across the back makes them very unique. I agree with Rye that these shoes feel like a hybrid of previous Nike models. Great shoe.

I must say I'm very disappointed in these shoes. Even though these shoes are light weight, the Air Max Cage makes me feel like I'm wearing a pair of concrete blocks. This shoe has no flex at all! In fact, these shoes scare me. The outsole is so stff and grippy I can't move on the court with any confidence. I feel like I'm going to fall. For years I was unable to find a Nike Tennis Shoe that fit correctly until I tried the Nike Zoom Breathe 2K10. For me, the Zoom Breathe 2K10 was the ultimate Tennis Shoe. Nike, please bring the 2K10 back in its original form. While I like the looks of the Air Max Cage Grey/Black I won't play in them.

Comfortable. Durable. Good plush ride. Not unpleasant

Comfortable. Durable. Good plush ride. Not unpleasant looking if you are playing tennis stationary or using the ball machine. But if you have to move fast, all of that goes out the window. The shoes fits wide! Too roomy for my medium width feet, despite having ordered a 1/2 size down. I find myself feeling unsure about any of my movement at all. The next remedy I will try is wearing them with 2 pairs of socks. If that doesn't work, I will go back to the Vapor 9s, the super shoes with crappy outsoles. Or maybe try the Asics Resolution 4s or 5s?

I just bought a pair of these, coming strictly from

I just bought a pair of these, coming strictly from wearing the Barricades for over three years. These Air Max Cage shoes are roomier than the Barricades, with a higher heel while tapering lower towards the toe box. I have slightly wide feet, so they happen to fit perfectly for me (though I don't understand how anyone can knock on shoes that just dont suit their feet, if the shoes don't properly fit then they aren't for your feet!) I wore them straight to the courts and played five sets of doubles. Took about half an hour or less of movement to finally break-in, and the initial discomfort was gone. After nearly 3 hours of tennis, my feet didn't ache like how they did in my broken-in Barricades. They do run a bit longer, but I stuck with my regular size. One thing that I noticed about the shoes while walking was that the support around my ankles would flex outwards and away from my ankles as I would walk forwards. It looked and felt as though the shoe was peeling/pulling away from my feet, though I didn't have any stability issues while playing. I also chose to lace up from the lowest shoe string holes at the ankles. They didn't squeak as much as the Barricades, and the lateral support was spot on without having that harsh stabbing feeling I got with the shoulders from the Barricades. I played some spirited tennis tonight and my feet don't feel beat up and in my opinion, these shoes have made me a big fan of Nike over my love for the Barricades and I've always disliked Nike shoes (especially the Vapors from 2007). I am one happy camper with these shoes and just wanted to say thank you to Nike for one-upping my favorite shoes of three long years. Good bye Barricades.

I have to say I love this shoe. Before this shoe I had the Nike 2k10's and i thought they were the best but now there is no comparison. It is a very stable and super quick shoe for getting to the ball while keeping you comfortable. They fit to size and are again the best shoe ever!

This is 100+ hour review. FYI, the tread is completely gone, smooth as a bald dude's head. And, the shoes are only 1 month old. As I said earlier, this shoe is roomy. As time passed, the plastic molding on the exterior of the forefoot seemed to stretch, which makes the shoe even wider. Maybe suitable for wider feet, but not for me. Also having to wear two pairs of socks, I have found t he shoes stretched even further. Rolled my ankle a number of times. Next remedy was to wear 3 pairs of socks and ankle support. I imagine I will be calling Nike soon for the warranty replacement. Unfortunately, I would not want this pair even as a free replacement.

Being a high school player, I slide a lot, but usually tear through Barricades in 3 months. I had these shoes for 2 months and the outsole wore out quickly, but the comfort is really nice. Even when the grip was gone, I don't find myself sliding as if I were to wear out other shoes.
