What tennis shoes do you use? I made a vlog about some of my favorite shoes and some pros and cons with them.
I am not an expert shoe reviewer, but I have tried a bunch of tennis shoes over the years. Lately, I have been testing some new HEAD shoes like the HEAD Revolt Pro 3.0, the HEAD Sprint 3.0 and the HEAD Sprint SF. Before I got into HEAD shoes, I used a few different ones such as Wilson Rush Pro 3.0, Nike Vapor Tour 9.5 and Asics Gel Resolution 6 and 7. All good shoes, but my current favorite is the HEAD Revolt Pro. The dampening and comfort is important for my knees as I mostly play on hard court and tend to play 4-5 times a week at least.
But a tennis shoe is obviously a personal choice and depends on what courts you play on, the movement pattern, the shape of your feet, and what you like in a shoe. Regarding the surface, the main difference is that clay court shoes come with a full herringbone pattern for great grip (with the ability to slide), while hard court shoes are more durable as they wear out faster.
If you want to hear about my shoe preferences, watch the video about or on YouTube. Are the other aspects of tennis gear you want me to cover? Grips? Dampeners? Or other topics completely? Let me know in the comments below.
More pro player videos and racquet videos to come soon, so don’t worry if that’s your thing 🙂
