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.
As Tennis Warehouse playtesters, we playtest a handful of shoes…to say the least. So I like to think we know a thing or two about what makes a shoe great. But after the playtests are over, the real test of a shoe comes down to what the playtesters are wearing when they can wear any shoe of their choosing. So as we have had a week or two without any playtests on our feet, it’s been interesting to see how many of us have been wearing our KSwiss Ultra Express shoes.
Where are all my ladies that love color?!
Check out the newest Asics Solution Speed 2 that we just got in stock here at Tennis Warehouse! We were super excited this morning when we found out that this shoe (what we like to call the TW Bubble Gum shoe) made it to our warehouse and is in stock and ready for you guys to order! Loaded with fun pops of color in a lightweight, speedy shoe, we were even inspired to create a fun commercial to go with it — take a look!
And while you’re at it, check out the super cute matching TW Bubble Gum Tank! Just in time for summer, this bright tank matches the shoes and is ultra soft and fun to wear on and off the court! We are really excited about this one! Finally, a cute tank that fits well, is women specific and will shows off your love for TW!
Let us know what you think about this #TWExclusive color! And once you get your pair, be sure to post some pics and tag us on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter!
Play with heart (and cute tennis shoes!),
