What court surface would you be playing on most?

I have a pair of K-Swiss that are meat for Savannah courts and find them great, very comfortable and great grip. Most of my family have K-Swiss ones. Got them in Arnotts in their sale where they give great discounts.

Don't go for black. Most clubs won't allow them. K Swiss are pretty good though a lot of them are now used as fashion shoes. You'd pick up a pair no hassle for about €70-€90.

K-Swiss all the way. Last 3 years I've always worn the K-Swiss Surpass Omni.



Very important thing to remember about tennis shoes is that you need the strong ankle support. I find these to be great in that regard.

I always find with shoes that you're best off to buy from the shops. At least you get to try them on before you hand over your dosh.

Where can these be bought from? I've tried all of the big sports shops in Belfast but none o them sell K-Swiss tennis shoes - just trainers.

"Sport" shops are just glorified fashion outlets. I can only speak for Cork so that's not going to help you all that much. Ludgates and Mahers both have them.

got a pair of Wilson about 3 years ago. They're still perfect on the bottom which is where it matters.
At the time they were €80.
