great shoe...good price
I have been wearing Kswiss for 20 years....always make a good tennis shoe
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.

Great Tennis Shoe
Bought for as a Christmas present for my 73 yo father. Plays tennis three days a week and stated side to side movement was comfortable without foot sliding in shoe. Great price and originally ordered wrong size on academy.com and had ABSOLUTELY no problem exchanging them in store for the correct size.
On the fence about purchasing this shoe until I learn more of the distinctions between a clay & hard court shoe. Does using a clay court shoe matter MUCH on the more common hard courts? How would a person tell the difference identifying what they have after purchase? Did Wilson make this same shoe model for hard courts also?

Excellent clay court shoes
I'm a 5.0 tennis player and been meaning to buy clay court shoes for a long time as I play most of my USTA matches on har tru - clay courts. In the past I normally buy Nike or K-Swiss tennis shoes due to their light weight and comfortable on my feet. However clay court shoes for these brands are in the range of North $160. When I purchased this Wilson at less than $85, i was worried about the comfortness. But as soon as I put them on, it felt great, didn't hurt my feet and I actually used it

I've been playing tennis with these shoes for over a month about 3 times a week, 2 hours each session. I play very actively, that is I'm running extensively on most points. The soles are holding up very well. The shoe is comfortable and provides good support. The fit was excellent using the size I usually buy. I am just getting over plantar fasciitis and am finding the shoe very good with regard to arch support and heel cushion. Highly recommend this shoe.

good long wearing comfortable
I had another pair that lasted over a year and did not fall apart. Normally tennis shoes will last me about 3 to 5 months before I wear holes in them. These tennis shoes seem to have very long lasting soles and have a lot of padding on the inside. I have had a variety of tennis shoes including nike that were more expensive and not as good. The only downside on the last pair that I bought was that it developed a squeaking noise while I walked. The pair that I have does not have this type of problem.
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.
the shoes seem to be rather well constructed for playing tennis and have extra sole in the areas that generally wear while playing tennis. While the shoes are for the most part very comfortable, they seem to have a couple of areas were there is a minor amount of abrasion. Although I like the shoes, since I have not worn them enough, I can't make any definative appraisal. At this time I would probably buy K-swiss tennis shoes for about the same price because they seem to be better padded and are

good support and fit
I bought this shoe a couple of weeks ago and have found it to be very comfortable while playing tennis. It fits well and seems to give better support than other tennis shoes I have bought in the past
I've been playing in these for a couple of weeks now and they've been great. Comfortable right and sturdy from the start - no break-in period necessary. Very good value for the money. Just need to see how long they last.

a great great purchase ever made
I bought this pair of shoes about a month ago, after getting frustrated with foot locker three times. I found it online with price $10 cheaper from foot lockers and with the color I like. The order was shipped promptly to my place and the quality is great indeed. I love this pair of shoes and will definitely buy from academy again!
