The upper part of the shoe features encased mesh that allows for breathability and a lived-in feel even when worn for the first time.

Adidas’s popular 3-claw stability system is once again a prime feature on the sides of the shoe offering ideal cushion and support. Toe cushion protection and the adiWear non-marking outsole will provide maximum traction.
Though the new version is almost-all white, the addition of bright yellow along the bottom of the shoe gives it just enough pop to make it an eye-catching addition to an player’s ensemble.
K-Swiss Big Shot Light
Fans of K-Swiss shoes are a diehard group and will very likely rush out to try the newest model from the American company in the Big Shot Light.
K-Swiss sought to make their lightest shoe ever and succeeded by combining a razor-thin synthetic leather layer with a rubber wrap and mesh that provides ultra-light stability and maximum breathability. A 180-degree Plantar Support Chassis provides even more stability in the midsole.
A modified herringbone pattern and the Aosta 7.0 rubber compound are combined to give the wearer increased durability on court. Overall, the Big Shot Light is ideal for those who want to feel like that they are wearing next to nothing on their feet when they step out onto the court.
Before purchasing any shoe, be sure to try it out, on-court if possible, and be sure to factor in wearing socks or any orthotics you might require.
