I hadn't had a pair of actual 'tennis' shoes since high school and went right back to K-Swiss, what I was familiar with! This shoe was great! Had a great fit with lots of cushion and support especially on the sides near the toes. I've had them for over 2 years now and they certainly last! They were great for game play and cardio-tennis workouts where we're doing a lot of high-speed movements and cuts, changing direction quickly. Also didn't roll my ankles in these at all and it's pretty easy to slide for shots with these as well. Great shoe, glad I went with it!
