5.0 out of 5 stars K-Swiss Men's Ultrascendor Tennis Shoe White/Navy/Silver 10,5 M, July 9, 2013

This review is from: K-Swiss Men's Ultrascendor Tennis Shoe (Apparel)
Over decades of running on tennis courts, I have run hundreds of miles. Like racquets, shoes are a personal choice. But shoes are more important than racquets for sport equipment. If your feet aren't happy, your body suffers, as does your game.
K-Swiss is the ideal shoe for my foot style and playing style.

My playing style is to run down shots across either side of the court and move up to net. It requires hard stops and fast change of direction. I typically roll on the outside of my ankles and heels.

The padded ankle foam keeps me from rolling my ankle. The outsole in the heel absorbs shock and is thick enough to withstand my landing on the outsides of my heels. The padded tongue supports and cushions my instep, as do the leather straps on either side of the lacing. As you lace the shoe, the five bands that support the laces tighten to secure your foot.

I like that the shoe has more leather than other brand shoes with more color and style.

I have played in Nike, Wilson, Prince, and Head tennis shoes, but K-Swiss is by far the most comfortable shoe for me.
Wilson gave me foot problems that required physical therapy. Prince and Head were so heavy I felt I was running in boots. Be aware that my evaluation of other brands is based on past use. I have worn my K-Swiss for over 4 years.

After several years, I wore the soles down on my previous pair of K-Swiss, but the toeguard was only scuffed. The padding and last did not break down.

When my new pair arrived, I wasn't sure how they would fit without actually trying them on for size. They fit like a comfortable pair of old shoes.

For me, K-Swiss is my tennis shoe of choice for comfort, support, durability, and ease of movement. And it's ok that I don't sport red, yellow, or blue shoes on court.
