Yonex continues to offer lightweight performance and new technological improvements in the new Power cushion Pro tennis shoe. Lighter and more flexible upper improves breathability and comfort, Guard Durable Skin helps prevent lateral movement of the foot inside the shoe while retaining the shape of the upper shoe, while Tough Brid cushioning lasts longer and is more responsive than traditional EVA for a lightweight and cushioning stable shoe.
Midsole: ToughBrid Light, Power Cushion, TPU, Power Graphite Sheet
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.
Was wearing the Asics Resolution line the last few years going back to the Resolution 3. Tried Yonex when Resolution was on backorder in part based on Tennis magazine review. Glad I made the change. For me, better fit, cushioning feels about the same but must be better because my legs aren't sore the next day anymore especially after singles. Also, I have tendinitis in my achilles tendons but not as bad with the Yonex. Sorry, Asics--you were a good shoe, but for me the Yonex Power Cushion Pro is my new go-to tennis shoe. And they're about the same price. NTRP 3.5, play 3-4X per week.
