For the 2018 season, K-Swiss has five primary tennis shoes of differing purposes. They are the Knitshot, Ultrashot, Hypercourt Express, Big Shot Light 3, and Court Smash. We took an in-depth look at each to break down their differences.
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.
At Tennis Express, we took the time to analyze the makeup of the brand new Solution Speed FF tennis shoe, and put its performance to the test.
