Lotto Raptor Ultra IV Mens Tennis Shoes are a great choice for play on any court surface! Lotto has introduced an updated cosmetic look for 2014! With a reinforced toe cap, this shoe offers great protection against toe drag across court surfaces. Heel Control technology adds support and control. ReactiveArch technology design for the sole offers maximum cushioning, stability, and reactivity. Longlast40 is a special rubber for resistance against highly abrasive surfaces. Worn by David Ferrer & Nicolas Almagro.
this has become my go to shoe, the sambia color being my third pair this season. the shoe seems to offer a nice balance of weight, stability and cushioning.
i normally go through a pair of shoes every couple of months during the season, so i'm probably a little tougher on shoes than some. i'd call their durability a little above average for me.
as for fit, i'm a basic 10.5 D and the shoe fits my foot great, no break in needed from my experience.
some of the colors may not suit everyones taste but as long as they don't go off the deep end with colors it will be my first choice when it comes time for new shoes.

This is my second pair of Lotto shoes. Good support and comfort. However, as suggested, make sure you order at least a half size to a full size larger than normal. The shoe also feels narrow. so if you have a wide foot, take that into consideration.
