As for feel during movements, I can't express how comfortable they are when landing/lateral movement. When going for digs, kills, and sets, it responds seamlessly. Traction is never an issue, unless the court is dirty. The wide flared edge helps when moving along the net and quick change of directions off tips.
Overall, this shoe great (I went with the red, white, and blue combo) and performs even better. I would definitely recommend this shoe to any beginner or higher level player. As a setter, this shoe does everything I need it to do plus more.
In ASICS shoes Size 13 is 48 European, not 46. I have always purchased ASICS and knew that their size 13 was correct for me so I never looked at the size chart.
A problem resulted when I ordered a size 13 from another brand of shoes and received a 46. There is a big difference between a 46 and a 48. The I was not sure what was going on and spent quite a while with a nice Amazon guy from India and eventually decided to try this shoe in size 13 just because that is what I have ordered before. And the shoes are wonderful for indoor pickleball and probably just about any other indoor sport. They probably will be fine outdoors too but I don't generally go outside for pickleball.
I don't know if other sizes are messed up except 15 in ASICS cannot be 48. I don't know where the sizes start to get messed up. Both the shoes and the box clearly state size 13 as size 48 for ASICS for this shoe.
After a little more than a month I already feel my game improved to how it was when I was 30 (20 years ago). My goal is to get back to when how I was playing when I was 20.
My wife gets the credit here since she said it’s better to spend less than hundred on shoes than spending thousands on surgery.
Through all of this frustration, the Amazon ordering and return service was outstanding.

Die Rückgabe scheiterte. Ich sollte TNT einen genauen Tag mit Uhrzeit nennen, habe sicherheitshalber 4 Tage mit Zeitkorridor genannt. Ergebnis: nichts. Der Händler bot mit DHL Retoure an, da ich das Paket dann abgeben kann. Ich habe zugesagt zugesagt, Ergebnis: keine DHL-Retoure (zum ausdrucken und aufkleben) erhalten. Sitze auf den Schuhen jetzt herum.
