This shoe offers an excellent blend of durability, stability, and response that Cage fans will love. The generative design saves weight by incorporating durable rubber and Kurim® material where they’re needed the most. This model even covers the medial eyelets for additional protection. The Cage 4 comes with a six-month outsole warranty.
K-Swiss Hypercourt Express 2
K-Swiss has a new iteration of the ever-popular Hypercourt Express. This shoe is perfect for a tennis player needing a little more room in the toe box, and for those with slightly wider feet. With this update, players will benefit from a lighter overall build, more supportive upper, and new Surgelite midsole technology. The Hypercourt Express 2 maintains the comfortable fit that past Hypercourts were known for and introduces a modern style to keep your feet looking as fresh as they’ll feel on the court.

The Brazer takes a minimalist approach to cut out excess weight and integrates the core features of what makes a great weekend matchday shoe. The breathable mesh in the shoe’s upper keeps your feet comfortable even in hot conditions.
Diadora Blueshield Fly 2
Diadora’s Blueshield technology makes the Fly 2 a fast-feeling and a comfortable performance tennis shoe. It is soft and stable like its Speed Blushield 3 counterpart but comes in a lighter, more dynamic package.
They naturally run a little wide and are an excellent option for players seeking comfortable performance. The Fly shuns a traditional tongue for a soft bootie construction. The Diadora Blueshield Fly 2 is a great option for sufferers of plantar fasciitis.

Lotto’s top athletes compete on tour in the Mirage 100. The shoe is lightweight and low to the ground for quick cuts and fast, sudden changes of direction. They are designed to be light and flexible for a fast and agile feel on match day. These shoes also keep support, stability, and comfort in mind to reduce your risk of injury, and provide an exceptional on-court experience. We recommend ordering half a size up for the best fit. The Mirage 100 comes with two different insoles, one with more cushion and one for reduced weight. Extra shoelaces are also included.
Head Sprint Pro 3.0
The Sprint Pro 3.0s are high-performance, all-court shoes designed for versatile players in need of light and fast footwear.

In this new model, tennis players will find superior comfort, stability, and control in a lighter, dynamic package. The Rush Pro 3.0 sits slightly higher than its predecessor in order to account for additional cushioning and support. However, new technologies, such as Sensifeel 2.0, keep this shoe adaptive and responsive. Players who enjoy stability will love the introduction of the 4D Support Chassis.
