The Sentinel tennis shoe was designed in a modern silhouette with comfort, durability and traction in mind and engineered to endure the rigors professional match play. From tennis professionals, to top juniors, the response has been overwhelming about the performance and comfort of the Sentinel. Fila’s designed the Sentinel with the right combination of cushioning and stability to meet the needs of tennis players of all levels. This shoe features a glove-like fit that lets the wearer focus on the game, and not his or her feet. The modified herringbone outsole provides traction on a variety of surfaces. Fila extended a 6 month guarantee on the Sentinel’s Evergrind™ outsole.
Up to this point, the New Balance 1187's were the only shoes that were wide enough to fit me comfortably. These have enough room in the forefoot for me, have great stability and comfort, and traction is good. I had a few slips after about a couple hours on court, but after I cleaned the outsole was able to play again without issues. I can't speak to durability yet, but I am enjoying these shoes so far.
