I put these shoes on out of the box and wore them for about an hour around the house. The next day, I played tennis for 2 1/2 hours, and they felt great. I've worn them several more times for tennis, and they still feel good on my feet. I'm very satisfied with them.

Lacing holes rip very easy. Comfortable and good wearing sole. 3 pairs had to repair lacing eyelets in first month. Won't buy again
