As 2020 comes to a close, it’s a great time to reflect on some of the best-selling women’s tennis shoes on the market.
Today, top tennis shoemakers deserve a lot of kudos for creating innovative designs that incorporate fashion and superior functionality.
They’ve loaded their tennis shoes with high-tech features, on-court technology, and made them even more comfortable than ever before. Not to mention, these leading manufactures have created some pretty fashionable-footwear in a variety of show-stopping colors.
In alphabetical order, I give you, the TOP SEVEN SELLERS by popular vote.

There are a good number of women on the pro tour who wear Adidas footwear. Big names like Garbine Muguruza, Andrea Petkovic, Angelique Kerber, and recently retired Caroline Wozniacki.
One of our consumer top picks was the adidas Women`s SoleMatch Bounce Tennis Shoes. These were designed with comfort in mind.
This model is touted for having a firm foothold with a new TPU Chassis for premier stability and bounce cushioning for excellent energy return. Labeled as a high-end, intermediate shoe, the uppers are comprised of textile and synthetic materials, allowing the shoe to be both durable and breathable.
The outsole is designed for giving extra toe protection against toe dragging and ADITUFF™ provides additional abrasion resistance.
Padding around the ankle ensures a more comfortable fit and special BOUNCE™ cushioning technology provides great shock absorption.
But don’t just take our word for it. June, a Tennis Express customer left a shoe review in September saying, “I love these shoes. I have wide feet but these fit very well. Did not require breaking in. Very comfortable, lightweight, flexible and good stability.”
Color: Sunrise Red with Eclipse Black
Did you know there are a few dozen Asics pro players on the tour? They include Caroline Garcia, Coco Vandeweghe, and Jennifer Brady, to name a few.
These ladies trust the brand, which is why ASICS Women`s Solution Speed FF Limited Edition Tokyo Tennis Shoes made the best sellers list.
Constructed with a lightweight frame and dynamic performance technologies, these shoes will bring your game to the next level!
Constructed with FlyteFoam®, which is considered an industry leader in the way tennis shoes are built, this technology provides excellent cushioning and bounce back.

The Solution Speed also offers a removable Ortholite Sockliner as well as Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL that helps reduce shock with quick side-to-side motion.
In early August, Stephanie L. had this to say about these shoes five-stars shoes. “I struggle with finding a pair of shoes for tennis that don’t hurt my feet. These are so great – I wore them for my first match without breaking them in. I felt faster and they didn’t hurt my feet at all.”

Let’s face it, Babolat makes some really great products, and undoubtedly, their shoes have become a crowd pleaser.
Although the company was founded in 1875 in Lyon, France, it wasn’t until 2003 that they partnered with Michelin to launch their first line of shoes.
I can tell you – they’ve come a long way since then. And for that reason, the Babolat Women`s Propulse Fury All Court Tennis Shoes has made the best sellers list for 2020.
Designed for players with explosive moves, these shoes are incredibly durable and exceed an athlete’s expectations when it comes to support and stability.
The Propulse Fury features advanced cushioning for comfort, Active Flexion that address 9-key pressure points, Cell Shield technology for reinforced abrasion-resistance, and PowerBelt Straps to ensures optimal heel and arch support.
If that’s not enough, Michelin Performance outsole delivers superior traction and durability on multiple court surfaces. The soles are infused with DIN 20 rubber and made to provide maximum responsiveness whether you drag your toes or not.
The Propulse Fury is one of Babolat’s most popular tennis shoes to date!
Margo C. praised the shoe for being, “An extremely comfortable shoe, right out the box. Great support both in the arch and for lateral movement. My new favorite shoe.”
Proving to be an industry leader on multiple levels, Fila has some famous pros lacing up their footwear including Ashleigh Barty, Sofia Kenin, and Karolina Pliskova.
With a six-month outsole durability guarantee, the Fila Women`s Axilus 2 Energized Tennis Shoe represents the brand’s latest iteration of high-performance footwear.
Based on the original Axilus Energized, this shoe has a few new perks.
Some of the new advantages include better responsiveness, stability, and comfort. It’s an upgraded model that is built with Breathable Quarter and utilizes mesh for enhanced ventilation and Molded Forefoot Cage which provides additional durability and support.
Fila also included a padded tongue and heel collar, along with a sockliner and anti-slide nylon lining. All of these technologies add control, balance and best of all, comfort.
Kristin H. gave these shoes a five-star review, saying, “These shoes are great!! I was looking for a better price and ordering from here was at least $20 lower than other sites. Shoes fit great and are so pretty! I wear them to tennis practice about three times a week. I definitely recommend these!”
Some shoppers commented that these shoes run slightly short than most. Tennis Express play-testers agreed, suggesting if you order the Axilus, consider purchasing them a half size bigger than you typically wear to account for the extra length in the toe box.
Color: White and Violet
If you are looking for a customizable fit, then look no further than the HEAD Women’s Brazer 2.0 Tennis Shoe.
Praised for being an exceptional value, these high-performance shoes are sold exclusively at Tennis Express.

Did you know that New Balance has been making shoes since 1906?
I have to believe they know a thing or two about shoes, and for that reason, the New Balance Women’s 1006v1 B Width Tennis Shoe are one of 2020’s standouts.
It helps too that some big-name WTA players such as Cori Gauff, Danielle Collins, Nicole Gibbs and Sorana Cirstea wear New Balance.
The 1006v1 offers outstanding comfort, especially during long, demanding matches. Their technology starts with the REVlite midsole that was designed to provide athletes with fast, comfortable performance, regardless of court conditions.
This light-weight shoe has a premier cushioning system that returns energy back into the areas you need it most – your racquet.
It’s made of synthetic materials that encourages breathability and offers a reinforced toe-box for those that need protection against dragging.
The New Balance name remains an industry leader with its Ndurance rubber compound which utilizes high-wear areas for maximum durability. The all court outsole is non-marking and comes with a six-month outsole warranty.
CJ from Pennsylvania had this to say about the 1006v1, “This shoe is comfortable from the beginning with no break in period. I purchased these to play pickleball & I’m glad that I did.”

Recognized as one of the biggest brands in sports today, Nike has been making tennis shoes for 48 years. In 1972, they launched the “Moon Shoes” in honor of American astronauts who had taken their first steps on the moon in 1969.
At the time the moonwalk was declared, “A giant leap for mankind,” but today, it’s Nike who’s making leaps and bounds in the clothing and footwear space.
For that reason, the Nike Women’s Air Zoom Vapor X Tennis Shoes have made the best-sellers list for 2020.
Delivering the ultimate in updated responsiveness, this lightweight shoe offers better control around the court than ever before. The Air Zoom Vapor X includes technology like Nike Zoom for speed, Dynamic Fit system for buoyancy, and TPU in the midfoot, which translates to additional support and stability.
And boy do these shoes have it all!
Exceptional ankle support, a generative design with targeted traction, and a low profile that is loved by the pros! Champions such as Serena Williams, Simona Halep, and Naomi Osaka have experienced some of their most memorable tennis moments wearing these shoes!
With a slightly tighter fit than the Vapor 9.5, the Tennis Express play-testers recommend going up a half-size if you prefer a little extra room in the toe box.
One of our customers, Oliva, had this to say about the Nike Vapor X, “Really great shoes. I play up to six times a week and they are broken in, I got them 2 days ago! I don’t slide a ton but I do toe drag a little bit and they hold up great!”
