Look out tennis world, there is a new shoe in town the NikeCourt Air Zoom Zero! Nike has always been a key innovator when it comes to tennis shoes, but the development of the Zoom Zero takes innovation to a new level. Check out this blog to learn more on how this shoe performed on court.
The Solution Speed FF is one of the lightest tennis shoes on the market beating industry mainstays like the Nike Vapor X, and Adidas Ubersonic 3.0. The lighter weight is due to the FlyteFoam midsole and minimalistic upper, which provides solid cushioning with an emphasis on energy return.
On court, the improvement in ventilation is pronounced. The shoes do a better job of protecting your feet with a fabric that breaths more naturally than the older, double-layer mesh. The mid-sole combines with the outsole to provide a cushioned ride while still feeling close to the court surface. The tread has changed slightly from the previous version as it flexes and supports well during dynamic movements like sliding or sprinting for drop shots.The full-length polyurethane mid-sole has some good bounce and energy return with a more plush feel than in the 2.0. After a couple of sets in the heat, the shoes showed a remarkable improvement over the 2.0 because they hadn’t absorbed a lot of sweat. Later the same afternoon, the shoes were dried out and ready for the next session on court.
I didn’t break the shoes in at all before I stepped on the court because I wanted to test how they felt straight out of the box. I was impressed by how soft the upper felt when slipping the shoes on, and how the sock liner guided my foot, but didn’t constrict it. Throughout the match, I didn’t feel any hotspots or have any blister issues. The foot bed offered strong support and cushioning, but I still felt connected to the court with a low-to-the-ground feel.
