Great shoe for the a player who wants speed and performance
I wanted to try out this model because of the good review and promotion I saw on the Midwest. I wasn't disappointed! The shoes fit very nice and light (I went half size up as per recommended). I usually play three times a week. Hope it will last long.
Very comfortable. Runs 1/2 size too small
Overall, this shoes is a great value. I did not need any break-in time and it felt comfortable right away. The shoe is on the tighter side - I ordered it a half a size large and it fits great. The non-connected tongue feels needs a little getting used to, but once its on the foot, it feels ok.
Comfortable and great looking!
As others have mentioned the toe box is a little snug. You may want to try a 1/2 size larger. But other than that they fit fine & are comfortable playing.
These are very unique tennis shoes, but not in a bad way. I have played with most major brands and the fit on these shoes is totally different than any Asics, Nike, Babolat or Adidas shoes. 1) the cushion is second to none, especially in the forefoot. 2) Traction is also superior. 3) Comfort is good, but the feel is very different. There is a lot of padding inside the shoe so in that sense they are very bulky. Also, if you like a barefoot like feel or low to the ground, you will not like these shoes. The shoes have a slipper like feel with the laces not coming up very high. It almost feels like the shoes will come off when you play but they don't. 4) Surprisingly good lateral support despite the unique lacing system. Overall very good shoes but they are not like other shoes which might turn some people off.
Love it! reminds me of Lotto shoe....shoe is narrow which is perfect for me who has a narrow flat foot and nice comfortable insole
nice very light , too narrow for my feet,
I wanted to try this shoe given all the good reviews. I usually use the ASICS Gel 5. This is an interesting shoe, it fits well out of the box, I ordered a half size larger because I wear thorlo 3 socks. I found the shoe hotter than the ASICS, and interesting because it doesn't have a classic tongue, it's integrated into the shoe so it doesn't move. I liked the way the laces are angled to fit the foot. I found the asics better cushioned, though this is good too, a bit too soft for me, but will see how it holds up.
love these shoes so far, wore them for a three set match right out of the box without any stiffness or blisters
Nice light weight shoe. Played with the shoe right out of the box. no break in period. Strong support. Great shoe for the price.
Half size up on item 159049-C4102. Had to return this item for a bigger size. The fit is snug and glovelike, once you get the right size!
shoe is very comfortable and has a good feel. My foot feels supported and in touch with the Court. The only flaw is that there is no reinforcement for the laces. A hard plastic or metal grommet around each hole would make for an incredible shoe.

Fast acceleration, no skid braking, power curves, great on all surfaces, if only a 1966 Cobra could do this well. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Terrific style, weight, and support. Unfortunately toe box is tight for a wide foot, and therefore could not be usable for me. If you have a narrow foot, could be the shoe for you.
I have been using Diadora shoes since 1984. This model is excellent as expected.
I last had an ASICS pair which I liked a lot, but 1st impression and feel of this one is great. Havn't had this one on court yet, but I'm hopefully.
Was very disappointed when they went off the market for awhile due to Geox buying Diadora. This new version is just as light, with the no-tongue sock fit that works best for my feet. Feels like there is some extra interior padding on this version that makes them a little more snug than I'm used to, but they just came and I'm sure they'll loosen up. Not crazy about this year's color scheme either. In the past you could get a grey or a black, but this year it's white or yellow. All in all, for me it's still the best shoe for my feet to play in.
I kept waiting and waiting for someone to post a review before I bought these shoes. Having no luck with that, I took a chance and bought them. I've played with Asics Gel Resolutions forever. These shoes are just as comfortable if not more comfortable (and for you Gel Resolution fans, you know that's a lot). I wore them shopping yesterday and was commenting on how incredibly comfortable they are. They are definitely bigger around the foot (not snug like other shoes). The "no tongue" style gets some getting used to (looks wise only) but man, they are amazing shoes. They are light weight with great support. I've played some 15 hours on them with no sign of wear whatsoever.
Instatly comfortable shoes!!! Great looks and very stable and great support.
