My favorite shoe for years has been the K-Swiss Stabilor SLS but because this model is out of production I switched to the Big Shot. Because the Big Shot is a much lighter shoe it doesn't have the same comfortable cushy feel as the Stabilor SLS. Big Shot has a great fit&feel on court but just not as comfy! Will see how they last compared to the Stabilor SLS?
not true to size--9.5 is a 9-- u need to order a half size larger

For being a standard width shoe. it runs wide.
When I tried these shoes on for the first time, it felt like a glove. Snug but perfect. Ended up buying 2 more pairs. Between the two pairs I bought, they lasted for two years. Won't hesitate getting them again. The third pair I use for work.
My son plays high school tennis and he has multiple shoes that he has gone through. He has told me these feel so good with all the sudden movement he has to make. They don't feel like they are slipping and are so comfortable. I would buy them again for him.

hope it isn't so
Heard that the T14 has been discontinued so I ordered an extra pair. hope the replacement is equally good.
I have been wearing this shoe on the court for about two weeks now and my foot pain has gone away. I replaced a pair of Nike that I kept catching my toe in. The addidas have a generous toe box which I don't need, so I just tighten the laces in the front and it has been a great performer. Getting good comfort and grip.

Poor quality shoes
These shoes looked like a good quality shoe....we've always liked Adidas products. My husband wore them one time for tennis and they did not "breathe" at all....they held all the moisture in the shoe and smelled like sweat immediately (he had never had that problem before. Also...the shoe liner came out of one shoe after the 2nd time he wore them. Very disappointed...I bought them for a Christmas gift.:(
I found the Nike tennis shoes that I really wanted but they did not have my size. They told me that they could ship me, for free, the size that I needed. I received them at my home in less than 24 hours. They are very helpful and have very competitive prices.
OK the ASICS® - ASICS® Men's GEL-Challenger® 9 Tennis Shoes width was too small for my feet. And Academy did not carry one in a EE width size so I had to return it. And go to another shoe company to get what I wanted.
Our 18 year old son is on his 2nd pair of these shoes after finally wearing out the first pair and loves them. He plays 2 hours a day throughout the school year plus tournaments and these by far have lasted the longest out of the other brands we've bought over the years. They have extra outer reinforcement on the sides where needed. He actually wore the soles while the upper looked almost new. Other brands literally fell apart at the seams or the toe. You get what you pay for with shoes in most
... read more cases and these are excellent quality for the price, especially being under $100!

With my son playing tennis every day, we go through tennis shoes fast. On the courts several hours a day but these have held up better than any. They are very comfortable. This is the shoe for you tennis athlete or runner.
