No grip on hard court
This shopper rated the product 2 out of 5 stars

I just last week bought these shoes for tennis. They are light and comfortable, and very reasonably priced. I was hitting ground strokes with with a tennis ball machine, and went to hit a ball, and my feet slipped from under me. The court was dry, and I have played there many times with my much more expensive asics shoes, and have never slipped at any courts with those. Long story short, I injured my knee. I will never play with these again, due to the bad hard court grip. The only reason I give 2 stars is for the comfort and price. Do not try to "save a dollar" as the saying goes. Buy good hard court shoes.

So good I bought a second pair need I say more. Tennis Point is always right on the money.

Working on the advice of my doubles partner who loves these shoes, I bought a pair. Great looking and felt good initially. However, after a couple hours on the courts, the hard plastic lateral stabilizers that extend from the sole of the shoe to the bottom of the toe box bruised the outside of my feet. A narrower foot might not have the same issues but for me I'm going to have to look for a different model.

I finally moved away from ASICS because they just never fit properly - always a bit big for the size. I was hoping that the K Swiss would be my answer. Unfortunately, they also seem a bit big. And worse, there seems to be a depression below where the big toe sits. After playing 2 games I could feel the rubbing on the toe. I tried tightening the shoe and even engaging the lace or heel lock (extra hole). I can't return them so I have ordered extra thick socks. I haven't received them yet. Needless to say, I am a bit disappointed. I wish there was a store where you could actually try on different manufacturers. Unfortunately in Richmond, not a single store even carries court shoes, including Dick's.
