I’ve gotten a lot of questions about the shoes I’ve been playing in lately. Here is my Yonex FusionRev 4 Tennis Shoe Review.
Yonex FusionRev 4 tennis shoe review
I rarely get questions about the shoes I wear to the court, but these have gotten some attention. The Yonex FusionRev 4 is a pretty funky-looking shoe. It’s the shoes I used for my latest ITF Masters tournament (watch the video here), and they have been pretty kind on my knees, which is the most important part for me. They also feel quite light and fast with a low-to-the-ground feel. I think it’s a well-balanced shoe, light but with above-average stability for the category.
The fit is snug, and the shoes are easy to get into. Thanks to the unique tread pattern, you feel stable as you slide toward the ball on a clay court. The shoes had no break-in period and I would say the length and sizing are true.
In short, it’s a very good clay-court shoe, and I’ve been using it confidently and comfortably for five weeks of clay-court tennis, and it looks to hold up well in terms of durability. It lands in the middle of a speed-focused and a comfort/stability-focused shoe, so I think it will have a wide appeal.
Not everyone will enjoy the slightly different look, but it performs well on the court!
