For retail Chicagoland, I'd have to go with Golfsmith and Sports Authority.  Golfsmith probably has the most number of models for specifically tennis.  I think SA has a larger selection than Dick's, and they will often put last year's model on sale for cheap to get rid of them.

Dennis, get a tube of SHOE GOO or buy an expensive pair of tennis shoes that offer a 6 month sole warranty.  I recommend a nice pair of ASICS gel resolutions. If you like playing in running shoes .... try a light pair of cross trainers about $50 and stop dragging your toes/feet. Good luck and happy shopping.

Golfsmith, Sports Authority, Dicks, Footlocker, Payless Shoes (lol)

TENNIS SHOES

Do any of you know of a really great store selling shoes for tennis?  I literally wore holes through both of my old running shoes so tossed them and grudgingly started wearing my good running shoes.  Three matches later it looks like someone took a belt sander to the bottom of them.  I estimate each pair of running shoes has about 15 uses or about $7 a use.  I love running shoes but the soles just get eaten up too fast.

So I want to find a huge store that sells shoes for tennis.  I’m NOT a fan of buying shoes online.  Electronics, computers,  etc. I can buy online but not something I wear.  That needs to be in-person.  So does anyone know of a good (hopefully large) store that carries tennis-specific shoes?  I’m willing to drive as far as Rockford or Chicago if necessary.

I'm hoping to find a shoe that breathes well like a running shoe with a lot of mesh as opposed to all leather which locks in too much heat.
