Monday, April 30, 2012 K-Swiss Monfils Tubes Mid Combines Past And Present

Combining old-school support and modern cushioning, the K-Swiss Tubes Monfils Mid is certainly a unique shoe, especially in today’s shoe game with extremely limited options regarding higher fits. With less than a handful of mid-top shoes still available, this is definitely the most advanced, with K-Swiss Tubes technology running the entire length of the shoe.

Named after La Monf, Gael Monfils, this shoe boasts a bit of the Frenchman’s style in its appearance, even though it is unlikely he will wear it on the courts. Originally designed for training shoes, Tubes technology offers incredible responsive cushioning using shock-absorbing cylinders.

These cylinders are implemented in a way to promote the natural gait of the foot for enhanced comfort. In addition to the cushioning, the Tubes Monfils Mid is equipped with an Aosta II high-density rubber outsole to provide grip on the court and resistance to wear.

The thing that makes the Monfils edition unique is obviously the mid-top design, a bit of a throwback to days past for players seeking ultimate stability. While shoes have advanced a lot over the years, and stability of many current models like the adidas barricade 7.0 are simply amazing, there is still a market for players that seek a higher shoe.

It is important to note that the K-Swiss Tubes Monfils Mid has a medium width fit and a low arch support. The synthetic leather upper offers plenty of support, designed especially for those that want some reinforcement around the ankle.

For the player that wants the comfort of Tubes technology without the higher support, K-Swiss offers options for both men and women with the current standard low cut. Designed primarily for comfort, the K-Swiss Tubes is still focused on the movements of tennis and features a Drag-Guard to enhance durability in high wear areas. It should be noted that while the Tubes Monfils Mid does not have it, the other variations of the Tubes shoes have Durawrap technology to protect against toe draggers.
