Speed vs stability: picking your tennis shoes

The game of tennis has undergone a radical change over the years. It has become faster, with many players now playing more aggressively and hitting with greater power.

Speed vs Stability: Picking Your Tennis Shoes

Speed – for a serve-and-volley game

ASICS has responded to these changes and developed a lightweight tennis shoe, specially designed for players who love a rapid change in direction and therefore need both speed and versatility. The ASICS GEL-SOLUTION SPEED weighs just 331 grams, making it the lightest tennis shoe on the market. The tennis-specific Impact Guidance System ensures that all components of the shoe work together perfectly on the court. The Propulsion Trusstic system creates a stable platform and assists forward and backward motion in sprinting and jumping. It works by supporting the foot's arch tendon to give more power and help prevent foot fatigue.

Thanks to a new, improved upper material, the shoe is even better equipped to cope with the rigorous demands made of it. The new, improved heel design also gives the perfect hold.
