I'm wearing out my 5th pair of these shoes. I play lots of tennis and this is the best shoe I've found for support. If I wear anything else, it feels like I'm pounding the heck out of my joints. They're also very stable. I've always had a tendency to twisting my ankles, but these shoes give a lot of stability! Knock on wood, but I haven't twisted my ankles since I've worn them. I'm sad that Nike is discontinuing these shoes, so I'm buying a couple pairs to stock up!
I've worn out two pairs of this shoe for the past 5 years. This is by far my favorite tennis shoes. The shoe body is in "sock" style so it'll wrap around your feet tightly. The sole has very "bouncy" cushion support. It feels wonderful hopping and running across the court in them. They are also very light (lighter than other Nike women's tennis shoes). Although it feels true to size in general, I've felt slight difference (probably within margin of error visually but definitely different when wearing) in my two pairs of size 9s. Ideally you should try on the shoe in store and buy the pair that is most comfortable. I wash them in the washing machine and leave them to air dry. I think using hot water is fine but be careful not to soak them for too long or spin too hard for the not-too-new shoes. I probably destroyed my last pair more quickly than I planned having washed them in very hot water - the glue at the front of the shoe holding the bottom came off. I will definitely recommend this to anyone who wants maximum cushioning and runs a lot on the court.
