As June is upon us, we’ve gone through the heavy playtesting spring season, although that doesn’t mean it’s over. I’ve picked two of the most cushioned shoes we’ve playtested this year, the KSwiss Hypercourt Express and Diadora Speed Star K III, to do a side by side comparison.
A quick note on my foot profile so you’ll know if you’re a foot match with me: Wide forefoot (wide enough to wear a New Balance D width), low to flat arches, pronator (mostly on my right foot). I am also a toe dragger.
The temps are rising and summer is here, which means the fashionistas are out and about making their style statements on the courts. Maybe you are making the trip across the pond to enjoy some tennis with the Queen or maybe you are just getting the ladies together for a Wimbledon Whites party at the club or wanting to look on trend this year. Either way, we have some wicked white outfits for you to check out to keep your style in check this summer. While white is definitely in this season and look great on the court, one of our favorite things to do is pair our white looks with some colorful pops of accessories — so check out our White Hot looks!
Calling all ladies with wide feet! I know your pain. (Not much of a secret, but I have wide feet! Hey, all the better for balance, I say.) Finding shoes that don’t squeeze your toes isn’t always an easy task. The old saying, “No pain, no gain” definitely does not apply when it comes to your tennis shoes. So I’ve chosen my favorite shoes that suit wider feet. These aren’t considered “D width” — only New Balance makes those consistently — but these are comfortable and don’t restrict my feet at all.
I’ve broken my favorites down into feature categories: cushioning, durability, lightweight and training.
