DragOn 2X: DragOn 2X is an evolutionary material which encases a mesh in a hexagonal pattern for maximum flexibility and superior ventilation. The result is Nike’s most durable tennis shoe to date.

Lunarlon: Lunarlon cushioning features a soft yet resilient foam core encased within a supportive foam carrier for lightweight, ultra-plush cushioning, springy response, and support. This innovative foam, invented at Nike and 30 percent lighter than traditional Phylon, allows the force of impact to be more evenly distributed, and helps to reduce painful pressure points on your foot.  

Air-Sole Unit: More than 30 years ago, a revolutionary idea raised the standards in sneaker comfort: Use the lightest cushioning material there is—air. Nike Air units work by trapping air molecules inside a durable urethane shell. With each footstrike, the air unit compresses to reduce the force of impact, and then immediately recovers its shape to be ready for the next landing. Nike Air units are built to last, so the cushioning properties hold steady for the life of the shoe.

XDR: Nike has created their new Extra Durable Rubber (XDR) and put it in their top shoes.  XDR ensures that you get the most out of your shoe, providing great protection and excellent traction on the court.

his is a great tennis show which is highly durable. I have had it for about a month and the shoe looks brand-new. I have planterfasitis and the shoe fell very comfortable. I have been looking for a shoe just like this.

Love this

Great shoes. Think I still prefer the 4.3, as they have a little more cushioning. I did not feel the need to size down as others mentions. If I had sized down, my toes would have been a little smushed. Adding a cadence insole took a little volume, and made them the perfect fit. Love the solid colors!

Heavy stability shoes are not my cup of tea, so it

Heavy stability shoes are not my cup of tea, so it took sale on the blue version to get me to try this shoe. At first I thought I had made a mistake because it took me more than a month to break my pair in. But I have nothing but good things to say about the Ballistics. This is a shoe that you can trust when running for a drop shot or planting your foot hard to change directions. And after three sets your feet and legs feel great. It's still not my type of shoe (it's slightly too heavy) but I would buy them again, and recommend them to anyone who doesn't mind the weight.

It's a good shoe, however for some reason whenever I play on hard court the laces give out and break out from the side. I have to bring them to the repair shop after tournaments.

I've had these shoes for 4 months now, and I don't like them, however this shoes are incredibly durable. I have stopped playing for about 2 months due to weather but I've broken through the Adidas's barricades 7.0 in a month. Playing non-stop tennis for 2 months with these shoes and I am barely getting through the sole. The shoes are crazy good when it comes to durability and feel pretty good. The only flaw is the toe space in the front. I read the reviews and was advised to get a shoe size 1/2 higher than my original, which I did. But even then, running a lot in these shoes causes your pinky toe to swell up due to the lack of toe space in the front. But other than that, this shoe is great.

I've had three pairs of these shoes (one on clay and three for hard) and all I can say is that I am hooked. I can't switch, as they are basically my feet. I play in them 2 hours a day, and I have broken 1 lace hoop but other than that it's a great shoe.

Best shoes for me yet. These were made for my feet.

Best shoes for me yet. These were made for my feet. Amazing! Traction is great, and even though the weight indicates them as a durability shoe, they feel fast. As for breaking them in, I am not sure where some of those complaints are coming from. I have worn my current pair 6 times and they feel soft all around, but not too soft like Vapors. I have tried some barricades and they seem to never break in, as they have good durability but they are constantly stiff. As long as Nike is selling these I will be buying them.

I was looking to replace my Nike Zoom 2K shoes because the new Zooms felt like I was walking too far off the ground. The 4.3 is a much better shoe and I'm glad I bought them. Very good stability and my foot stays firmly in without moving around.

These shoes are underrated. For big guys, or smaller

These shoes are underrated. For big guys, or smaller guys who like stability, these truly fit the bill. I used to play in Nike Vapors and while they may have been more comfortable on the feet, I feel more comfortable playing in the Ballistecs because they feel so stable (I'm 6'5 220lbs). A couple of drawbacks, the first being the lacing system which I haven't had a problem with yet but I don't doubt that it could be a problem in the future since that seems to be the consensus on these shoes. Lastly, I would recommend using extra heel cushioning or heel raisers with these shoes because the air max cushioning does not give your heel enough support, and If you've ever had tendonitis then you know what I'm talking about. Overall, they are good, comfortable shoes with excellent stability and durability, but I would add a heel insert if you buy them.

Nice shoes, lighter than the 3.3 which had too much

Nice shoes, lighter than the 3.3 which had too much plastic in it and better ventilated as well. The lacing system seems to be flawed however, most of the lace loops on my 3.3s (they are the same as those in the 4.3) broke after a few months of moderate use. On my current shoes I replaced the Nike laces with new softer and flat ones, so far so good, but I would like to know if anybody else has tried this trick?
