Babolat SFX & Diadora Speed Star K II: Comparing 2 super comfy shoes

Comfort is king

 

When it comes to tennis shoes, we all have different wants and put more importance on one factor versus another. While I’m pretty sure no one wants an uncomfortable shoe, for some comfort is indeed king and is more important than say lightweight speed. When I think of the most comfortable, cushioned shoes, the first two that come to mind are the Babolat SFX and the Diadora Speed Star K II shoes.

With either option, you’re going to find good support, stability and plush comfort, but let’s take a look at the nuances to help you make the choice that best fits your wants and needs.

Tennis Hats: Save vs Splurge

Now that spring is in the air and the sun is shining, it is time to hit the outdoor tennis courts. A must for many players when playing outside is some sort of hat/visor so this week I choose hats for my blog.  For my save, I choose the all back Solfire Trucker Hat at $18.  This hat features a mesh back with a Velcro back and tonal Solfire logo. For my splurge, I had to go with the classic Lacoste Trucker Hat. The oversized signature croc logo is the main focus of the hat but it also features a Velcro closure and a pre-curved bill. Both hats are high performance but also perfect for off court use as well.

Tennis jackets to fit any budget

Tennis Jackets: Save vs Splurge

 

It’s time for a little shopping! Should I save or splurge? Inspired by the rainy weather today here in San luis Obispo, I wanted to get a jacket. My save today is the Asics Fall Racquet Jacket in green jade and is a bargain at $54. This lightweight jacket features all the technologies you need as well as some stylish details. It features a full-zip entry and elastic binding at the cuffs and hem along with a tonal screen print and rushing on the back.  For my second pick, the adidas Stella McCartney Spring Jacket in fresh aqua is a perfect splurge item. This lightweight jacket is perfect to throw on after a match and is stylish enough to keep on once you step off the courts.The exaggerated collar make quite a statement on both the front and back.

With each of these Save Vs. Splurge blogs, I’ll first feature a “save” since everyone loves a good deal, myself included, and I am always on the hunt to find the best price. And the second will be a “splurge,” which I think is necessary at times to purchase an item that is top of the line or just released. The products will range from apparel to shoes to bags to accessories. Keep checking back in with us for another edition of Save vs Splurge!
