I am extremely pleased with this purchase. Next to NB, it is the best fit I have experienced in a tennis shoe. The great fit immediately transferred to total comfort and confidence on the court. I do recommend giving them a try. Although subtle in their presentation, they are quite stylish!

These shoes are the most comfortable and promote the best foot, leg, and back health of any shoe I have owned. I have used NB, Adidas, Nike, and some more and these are the most comfy after a long day on the court. They don't breathe well but its worth it for me. I thought the extra heat might not be good for the feet but so far the benefits outweigh the positives.

I bought these shoes for my Dad who really needed an updated tennis shoe but still prefers mostly white. He recently bought a pair of Asics running shoes so I thought these would fit him well too. They have been very comfortable and much more supportive than the old Reebok "casual" shoes he had been wearing for tennis.
