I play high school tennis and was looking for an excellent shoe. I bought Lacoste shoes because, while I love Nike running shoes, I can always be sure of Lacoste's quality and style for tennis. These feel like they were made for me. Good sole and tread that doesn't hinder lateral movement, good ventilation, excellent fit for narrow feet like mine. Good for medium arches. They run a tad long, but overall are worth the buy.
