Just played in my clay court vapor pro 2's tonight and can say not a big fan after first wear. Didn't feel like there was much cushioning (and I'm not even picky about it compared to most) and overall just felt kinda stiff without much performance. I'll wear a couple more times but not exactly sure I'll be rushing out to buy these iterations (however the clay sole being available in the US will likely *force* me to buy them as most EU options are cracking down on shipping to US as they should have been all along).
💯💯💯💯I found the VP2 waaay too stiff. I’m done with new Nike shoes….I switched over to the ASICS speed for clay about two years ago and have loved them. Just gonna pick those up for hardcourts now. They’re as close to the vapor x as I feel like I can get. That said, the On Roger Pro‘s are the best hardcourt shoe I’ve ever played in. Too bad those are $200 bones and only released like twice a year….in an orthopedic at best colorway…smhReally wish Nike would come out with more classic Challenge Court stuff.....that retro line is really good and last time they came out with anything from it was in 2020 (the retro 90'-91' line )
Also not a fan of the Vapor 11's or the NXT's as the cushioning isn't great. They need to put more Zoom Air, Air max or something in their tennis shoes. Really feels like you're running on pavement with just socks on.
Prefer ASICS as I feel their gel cushioning right now is better than Nike's cushioning.
