The 10 best men’s tennis shoes under $100

New year, new gear!

It’s all about using the right tool for the right job. You wouldn’t use a hockey stick to hit a golf ball would you? Then you probably shouldn’t use a running shoe to play tennis. So make sure you’re wearing proper tennis shoes with plenty of tread so you can perform your best on court!  At Tennis Warehouse, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get a high quality performance tennis shoe. But if you ever wanted to, we have plenty of those too. :-)

Here are the top 10 men’s shoes under $100. Broken into 3 categories:

For the aggressive player needing durability & stability (6 month durability guaranteed)

Sneak Peek: Luxilon ALU Power Soft

With a large following on the pro tour as well as with competitive recreational players, the Luxilon ALU Power line is introducing another string into the family this month, Luxilon ALU Power Soft. As its name alludes, it is a tad softer than ALU Power and offers excellent control, durability and spin potential. Chris and I took this string out for a several week playtest and found the string offered a crisp, medium firmness feel and a consistent response. We were most impressed by the durability as after 2-3 weeks, we had plenty of life left. We did find the string to be low powered and would recommend it to big hitters who want to be able to play offensively with accuracy. Check out the video above right now for our complete thoughts and look for the written review when the product launches.

Upsides:

  • Control
  • Spin
  • Durability
  • Feel

Downsides:

  • Low Powered
  • Too firm and underpowered for beginners
