Once upon a time, my tennis shoes were for strictly tennis. How things change! Now while I still wear running shoes to run, my go-to shoes for gym workouts (primarily HIIT and Tabata routines) are made for the court.
Today I’m pitting two of my favorite lightweight tennis shoes, the Asics Gel Solution Speed 2 and the KSwiss Ultra Express, against each other for their cross training effectiveness. When it comes to training shoes, I look for something that is lightweight, comfortable, stable and colorful. Yes, cosmetics count and count for a lot.
Let’s break down the match-up.
Summer is here, the temperature is rising and the deals are getting hot here at TW. Check out the best deals we have on footwear right now at Tennis Warehouse — these shoes get high regards in our book because of their price matched with their performance! But don’t just take our word for it, grab a pair or two and try them out yourself!
1) Babolat Propulse 4
A solid option when it comes to comfort and durability on the court, the sleek looking Propulse is loaded with stability and cushioning and will keep your feet comfortable. With an explosively fast feel, the Propulse also has a customizable fit and durability that you will enjoy! Backed by a six month outsole guarantee, we think these would be a solid option for the player who spends hours at a time grinding away on the court.
