This past summer, I started playing a lot of tennis. In two months, I got my tennis game from a level 3 to a level 4. Somewhere in between the training, I noticed I couldn't brake and turn as fast as I would like with the running shoes I was playing in so I went out to a Tennis shop, and they recommended the Babolat All Court III. I play with a Pure Drive raquet and Pro Hurricane Tour strings, so Babolat shoes made perfect sense since I liked everything else I've tried from that company.
Although these shoes did let me brake and turn faster, I think I bought them a half size too small and when I play really aggressively, my feet hurt at the end of the match.
By Christmas, I am looking to up my game from level 4 to level 5 and I feel that a part of that would be upping my footwork, starting with better shoes. I started playing a level 5 player and I just couldn't get to the ball in time to hit it back with pace.
If I were to spend around $110 on shoes, which is the best shoe out there. I've looked at so many reviews and the Barricades seem like a top choice, but what do you guys think and what do you guys play with?
