For the rally that won’t relent or the marathon match that must end in your favor, go with the Vapor Pro 2. We brought back all the elements you enjoyed in the original Pro: The low-to-the-ground design and the springy Zoom Air cushioning that helps you break from baseline to baseline, with that familiar Vapor comfort that helps keep you fresh on unforgiving surfaces.

After trying out the VP2 and the Zoom 11, forum members wonder why the Zoom 11 is more premium, yet pros prefer the VP2. The VP2 tip and outsole has that extra rubber cover, which I assume would make it more durable when you're pivoting and sliding off the front of your foot. What I found was the relatively softer and more flexible VP2 made it easier to move in all directions. It was comfortable out of the box. The stability and energy return features of the Zoom 11 made it stiffer and cause you to accelerate forward. It was difficult to move backwards, and somewhat bulky when moving laterally though this was less of an issue. A greater issue was that the stiffness out of the box altered my movement and caused shots to go off since I utilize my body more than arm strength. For a baseliner or serve and volley play style, the Zoom 11 is suitable, particularly for larger and heavier players. For me, the stiffness limited my agility. Therefore, I think the VP2 is the best current offering from Nike for most people. Aesthetically, I preferred the Zoom 11.

Yes! This shoe is great. Finally a shoe that matches the comfort, support and looks of my favorite, the zoom cage 2. Very comfortable worn loose for coaching and great support when tightened for hitting. Please keep making this shoe for a while and please release it volt color!

huge improvement over the out going vapor pro. was not able to wear that shoe due to the lack of cushioning - I experienced shocks to my feet when landing hard after a sprint. gave these a try and they are honestly the most comfortable shoe i've worn in general. can wear them all day for standing at work and take them to the courts right after. light weight, good cushioning, extra rubber in high wear areas - great vapor by nike.
