Bought this pair to use as my everyday walk-around shoes. Certainly can be used on the court, but I prefer the Gel 5's for the serious stuff. Comfort is the main selling point and they don't disappoint.

I only wear Asics. They offer comfort, performance and style. My only complaint is the laces. This is my 6th pair of Asics in 2 years and the laces always break. They quality of the nylon wrap always freys and separates from the lace core. They should really improve or at least include a second set.

Comfortable as soon as I put them on. Needed them for conditioning and didn't need to break them in at all!

I was a runner for 20 years and found Asics to be the BEST of all the shoes. This tennis shoe has the same comfort and support as the running shoe.
