WHY CHOOSE A TENNIS-SPECIFIC SHOE?
There are lots of reasons!
Footwork on the court is very different to how you move when doing other sports such as running or fitness. You quickly move forward and back as well as side to side. Tennis shoes offer the support you need to play safely without the risk of injury.
Your cushioning needs are also different to protect your feet from impacts from the ground.
The most comfortable shoes in our ARTENGO range thanks to the cushioning that has been tried and tested by a panel of intermediate and advanced tennis players. Our testers loved the soft cushioning and propulsion.
The shoes are tested in a lab on a standardised machine that reproduces the impact of the heel when playing tennis using an 8 kg impactor.
This shoe is designed to have a tennis-specific fit that makes you more comfortable. The shape has been approved for playing tennis by our R&D teams using scans of thousands of users' feet and analysing foot movements during play.
RESISTANCE TO WEAR
When you move around the court you sometimes drag your shoes along the ground, which makes the sole wear out faster. The surfaces you play on are also abrasive. Our shoes are tested in the lab on a machine that has been specially developed to reproduce the type of heel, forefoot, toe and instep wear seen during regular play
