We have known K-Swiss to make some pretty comfortable shoes since their insurgence into the tennis market in 1966. However, they have finally found a great competitor in the durability shoe line with the Men’s and Women’s Ultrashot 2. See how the Ultrashot 2 compared to some of the great durability tennis shoes in today’s market.
The HEAD Brazer Tennis Shoe is among the lightest shoes in the sport, yet still offers solid stability and comfort. Overall, it represents an excellent value on performance, and makes a great weekend matchday shoe. You can find it exclusively here at Tennis Express.
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.
Fans of the original SFX will be pleased to hear that the 3 returns to the basics of what made the first version so popular. It’s wide-foot friendly, and offers maximum comfort. In addition to this, Babolat has implemented new technologies to offer superior support and breathability.
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.
On July 19, 2018, Nike officially unveiled the NikeCourt Air Zoom Zero Tennis Shoe. We broke down the technologies and features implemented in this shoe to give you a better look at its primary functions. We also put it head to head against the widely popular Vapor X.
