One of the things I also considered this over Tornado 6 was the weight, it is about 4 ounces lighter. The only minor concern that I have is that it seems Mizuno used softer materials and your first impression is that they will tear a little easier. I am not sure, it's just an observation but judging by my past Mizunos I just can't break them.
Get this over Tornado 6!
I was a little worried about exchanging for the Wave Lighting 7 because of its lack of lateral support. Racquetball and volleyball are indeed different animals. However, I can't even begin to tell you how pleased I am with this shoe.
First off its the most comfortable thing I've ever put on my feet. My custom orthotics went in with no problems and in no way hindered the shoe's performance. These babies are light yet have tremendous cushioning. My knee pain went away the first week I played in them.
They grip better than any other hard court shoe I've tried, and the breather vents in the sole actually work.
As for the lack of lateral support, I haven't noticed it once and I do a lot of running and diving.
Just a great, great shoe, maybe a little ugly but that's not a concern when they perform this well.
Also, I wear ankle braces on both feet and I didn't have any problems wearing them with these shoes. At my age, I can't take the pain of rolling my ankle any more. ;)
I would definitely recommend these shoes to other players.
