I have tried numerous tennis shoes since I started playing about a year ago, and could never find anything that I liked. A girl I play with recommended the shoe, so I went ahead and ordered online thinking that I would probably send them back like I had all the others. But no, this shoe is the best. Great toe room, great fit and so lightweight! I will definitely be buying another pair, and recommend this shoe to everyone!!
This is my 2nd pair of K-Swiss, because I've worn all the tread off the front half of the sole of my lead foot of the 1st pair, and wanted a backup for when I decide they are a little slick. They are perfect on the court, and I just recently put in arch supports after a full year of hard play. Most athletic shoes seem to need additional support in half that time. These shoes have no wear on the top side, and they breathe perfectly. I love the color of those wild shoe strings. I may soon buy another backup pair, for fear that they will quit making them. I had never bought K-Swiss before, but these shoes sure made me a fan! The perfect balance of stability and give. The only thing I would say to a first time buyer, is buy a half size larger than you normally do, because they run a little small. That half step up was a perfect fit for me. Midwest Sports.com is terrific; I paid more than double the price for the 1st pair at a fancy Tennis Store.
This is my 3rd pair, and I have 2 other pairs. I am stock piling for when they don't make this shoe. Love, love this shoe! It's lightweight & very supportative. I broke my foot playing tennis, wearing another name brand. Found this shoe & will never switch, till it's made no more.
Fairly comfortable and very lightweight, but stiff on the upper part of my foot. Supportive, but I'd like more cushioning.
I switched to this shoe because the new model of my former favorite Bigshot cut into my ankle. I like the fit of the Ultra Express, (though I always buy a 7 when my street shoes are a 6). They have a nice big toe box and are very light and durable. The cushioning reminds me of the Tretorns of the 1970s. Downside: The tongue is rather bulky and hard to lace and doesn't lie nice and flat. And the colors! UGH. Nobody has clothes that match (or complement) these colors. It's clownish. I was hoping the second model would have better colors, but what they came out with looks like Crest toothpaste! How about a nice neutral? Or some bold colors that approximate the colors of the currently popular clothing? I did buy the shoe again because it feels so good on the feet, but I'm still on the prowl for another go-to shoe because I don't like the look of these.
This is my second pair. Love the lightweight, supportive shoe. Wish it came in other colors since this color contrast w/a lot of the tennis clothing I own.
Lightweight, good arch support, wide toe box, tongue is bulkier than I'd prefer. I wish this shoe was offered in more color selections. Needed to order a size larger.
These shoes are the best K-Swiss I have ever owned and I am a loyal K-Swiss buyer. They are lot as bulky as the big shot or big shot light. They are similar to Asics but with a better toe box and overall comfort level
