Diadora Speed Star II

Like a typical female fashionista, shoes are one of my biggest weaknesses! Everything from cute sandals to wedges, boots to flip flops, running shoes to flats…and of course, tennis shoes!

So when I put on the new Speed Star K W IIs by Diadora…let’s just say, I was one happy lady! Plush cushioning enveloped my feet in a sleek black and purple design. I was officially obsessed! And by obsessed, I mean I couldn’t take them off! I proudly wore them all over the TW explaining to everyone how amazingly comfortable these cute shoes were. I wore them down the hall, I wore them for a hit and I wore them in the gym…I even took them out for a walk to get some coffee because there was no way I was taking these shoes off! Nothing can beat the plush perfection of these shoes!

So comfort and cosmetics aside, why else do I love these shoes? They are quick and low to the ground, yet still stable and have a good grip on the court. Everything I’m looking for in a tennis shoe and more! While they work great on the court, I must admit that I find myself slipping these shoes on whenever I can! With a six month outsole guarantee, I know I will be getting a lot of use out of these and can look forward to a new pair if I happen to wear them down in the next 6 months.

These are quickly climbing up the ladder to be a new favorite shoe of mine…ladies, trust me on this one…check these Diadoras out!

Play with heart,

Michelle

We’re taking a new approach to the women’s vlog, and we want to hear from you! Our female TW playtesters have played with so many racquets and strings and in so many shoes and apparel brands, and we want to answer any questions you might have. If you want to know about the fit of anything, we’ll try it on and show it on a model.

When it comes to showing apparel on our weekly video blogs, our TW Stylists (those same playtesters!) are choosing the outfits that work best for their style and their body types.

This week we took a look at shoes. We have so many options, so I asked the women to pick their favorite lightweight shoes. Here are our top picks and top 3 reasons for loving them so!

Color Your Feet

When it comes to women and tennis shoes, there is sometimes a lack of color and style in the tennis industry. The excitement we have in, let’s say, high heels doesn’t transfer over to the design of tennis shoes. There’s so much more hype on next season’s men’s shoes than women’s. It’s been known that men have more passion when it comes to sneakers, but women have an overall shoe addiction. So why has the excitement stopped when it comes to women’s tennis shoes?

With the launch of new women’s shoes, white and grey shoes sell the best. In theory, it’s a style that will match any tennis outfit. Personally, I wish my feet could step into something colorful! For those who want a stylish and exciting look, the following shoes will not only bring pizazz to your tennis wardrobe, but also offer comfort and stability for the high performance wear!

With spring here and summer along the way, Nike adds violet to its Zoom Breathe 2K10 line. With the colorful the cage, you get the support needed in aggressive movement as well as a style that Nike executed beautifully.

Another Nike shoe that I loved to play in was the Air Max Mirabella III. The green apple and vibrant blue version is from last season so it’s now on sale. This is for the player with a medium width foot looking for a full package of comfort, support, and of course a joyful pop of color! (Click here for TW’s review.)

adidas joins the season’s trend of pastels with its Fresh Pink Barricade adilibria. The tonal design gives it an added texture. If the pink seems too feminine, players can find a bolder look with the purple metallic version or tone it down to a white with intense green stripes. Barricades have a reputation for being one of the best high performance shoes out there, and they live up to it! (Click here for TW’s review.)

Asics designed a shoe with a Flexion Fit upper in a cage-like design. The bold black with hot pink underlay makes the Gel Resolution 3 a shoe for the aggressive player who wants to match her game with her look. Our site says we currently do no have them in stock, but we’ll be getting another shipment in two months. This shoe is too good not to mention its stability and comfort.

If you want a more subtle transition into the color world, there are plenty of white shoes that offer hints of color. Make sure to check our website to find a shoe that will fit your style, or you may find yourself stepping into something different!
