Yonex Power Cushion Durable 254 tennis shoe offers lightweight cushioning, and outstanding stability in bright new colors for 2014. A lighter and more flexible upper improves breathability and comfort, while 3 layer Power Cushion offers improved cushioning for smoother movement and quicker footwork.
Upper: Synthetic leather, mesh, TPU
Outsole: Round Sole, Endurance Rubber
Midsole: Power Cushion, Solid EVA
YONEX POWER CUSHION: Drop an egg onto the Power Cushion and it will bounce back without breaking. Yonex Power Cushion Technology responds to quick and sharp movements by transforming shock into kinetic energy. Furthermore, this unique characteristic reduces muscle fatigue on your legs, so you are fresher going into the fifth and final set.
YONEX ROUND SOLE: Round Sole provides a feeling of increased comfort while maximizing the transfer of body energy into every shot. With Round Sole positioned on the side and heel of the shoe, it prevents any awkward landings and permits quick, smooth footwork around the court.
Probably the most cushioned shoe around, more so than the power cushion pro version. Fit My medium width foot perfectly straight out-of-the-box and the durable sole is a nice bonus. If you play a lot on hard courts and are looking out for your joints without sacrificing movement, I recommend this shoe. It does seem a bit long, I wear a 9.5 in the power cushion pro and a 9 in the durable.
If you like a low to the court feel with less cushioning this shoe is not for you.

I am healing from some tendonitis in both my achilies heals and thought these shoes would give me more comfort than the pair I have now. They were more comfortable but felt somewhat clunky and somewhat unsupportive. I tried lacing them tighter but it didn't help all that much... I felt a little like they were clip-clopping while I was running. I would not recomend.
