Mens Tennis Shoes

Athletic shoes are a gigantic business worldwide. About 30% of shoe revenue is generated in North America. But Asia is faster growing as prices are lower there. Over a quarter of a billion pairs of shoes are sold in Asia annually. Of all athletic shoe business, men are over 50% of the market with women and children occupying smaller slices. When the business is that big, the financial stakes are as high as a fourth set tiebreaker. As consumers, men want their shoes to take a beating on all surfaces and be comfortable in the process. Consumers must make good decisions on what is probably the second most important piece of equipment on the court.

What makes a good tennis shoe?

All the parts of a shoe must work together to support the foot. They include:


  • The outsole is the bottom of the shoe. It must provide traction on any court, and be durable for many matches. Indoors, they must not make marks on the court.

  • The insole is the inside that cradles the foot. Repeatedly absorbing the shock of body weight pressing on it and wicking away perspiration while preventing blisters are its main responsibilities.

  • The upper acts as a heat diffuser and provides lateral support as players go back and forth and up and back during matches and practice.

  • The tongue helps keep the foot firmly planted in the shoe and ventilates the foot throughout the course of a match.


Do tennis shoes make a difference?

Absolutely. Other athletic shoes are not designed to provide support for side to side movements with the regularity called for on the tennis court. In addition, other shoes will not be durable enough to withstand the abuse that hard courts will dish out. Finally, traction on clay or grass will come more easily with the tread patterns on tennis shoes.
