adidas Men's adiPower Barricade 7.0 Tennis Shoe
I play 2-3 times a week on hardcourt and these shoes are well cushioned and light. They offer great stability and feel more like a high quality running shoe or basketball shoe on my feet. I had been playing in the Nadal model by Nike and there is no comparison. This is the best tennis shoe I have worn for years. The only slight negative is that the toe box is wide and my foot slides up a bit when I plant hard on certain shots. If you wear two pairs of socks or make sure you tighten the lower laces, this fixed the problem.

Best tennis shoe I've owned to date.
Lightweight, like a running shoe so I'm not slow on the court. Lateral movement support for great netplay. Only had it for 3-4 matches so far, but materials are holding up great. I've heard the tread is bad for trapping lots of clay though if you're into clay courts.
