The Nike Considered Humara sneakers come in many different types of colours and I think it is one of the most beautiful sneakers I have seen. The "Considered" technology of Nike involved using natural materials so it does not damage the environment. I ordered it through internet and it was shipped from Malmo (Sweden) to Singapore at a total cost of about S$150.
I bought this good looking and very comfortable tennis shoe on the internet (Tennis Warehouse) during November 2007 and the company can ship it all the way to Singapore which is great!
The description of this tennis shoes at Tennis Warehouse:
The Air Max Breathe Cage, worn by ATP player Rafael Nadal, offers the ultimate in speed oriented support, stability and court feel combined with a high level of durability and comfort. Very reminiscent of the Air Max Breathe II, this fourth version offers easier entry through a revised uni-tongue design and an even more durable XDR outsole. Building on continual improvements in fit and performance, the Air Max Breathe Cage offers a comfortable, glove-like fit and excellent impact protection through Air Max cushioning in the heel. Zoom Air in the forefoot puts the player low to the ground for excellent court feel and increased stability during fast transitions. The direct inject Drag-On material offers improved upper durability as well as providing excellent support. A lightweight mesh under the Drag-On material offers a high level of ventilation for prolonged comfort. This shoe offers out of the box comfort with no break-in required, The XDR outsole features a 6-month outsole guarantee. A popular choice on the pro tour, the Air Max Breathe Cage offers the highest level of performance for players who are serious about their footwork.
I managed to get a pair of Brooks Maximus running shoes in September 2007 as this shoe is part of the items which I can get for my army reservist training (so it is free-of-charge). This running shoe is very light and comfortable, and good for casual wear in addition to running or jogging.
I have tried many different brands of tennis shoes throughout the years and I think Nike shoes are one of the best because their designs are such that the shoes fit nicely onto the leg, and the shoes are normally very light. Furthermore, the designs are usually quite nice but the only problem is that the colour sold in Singapore is normally white (which is very boring). There is a very good and nice tennis shoes worn by the tennis pros called Nike Air Breathe but it is not available in Singapore (I will buy it overseas if I have the chance).
The problem about sports shoes in Singapore is that there are limited models to choose from, especially cross-trainers and tennis shoes (most of the sports shoes sold in Singapore are running shoes). Also, the tennis shoes are mostly white in colour (which is boring) and many of the models worn by the tennis pros are not available in Singapore. In early 2007, I bought a pair of cross-trainer (Adidas Supernova) so that I can use it for walking around as well as tennis (which I play regularly). The Adidas Supernova is of nice design and is very comfortable and light :)
