    Don/TW Buyer,

    Do you stock or have the ability to order tennis shoes designed for grass courts (with the little nubs on the soles, 'as if the dimples on a golf ball went out instead of in')?

    Thanks in advance for your response.

    We do not have any grass specific shoes and none are currently offered by our vendors. However, the Diadora Passione and the Adidas ClimaCool Feather are suitable. I would also recommend the Nike Vapor S2 which has a very soft rubber outsole with a herringbone pattern wide enough to grip on grass.

    Thanks,
    Chris, TW.

    You cant get them from the vendor. Nike and Adidas both make a grass court shoe in europe as does Lotto(I think)

    Why will they not release any to American market??? I play on Grass frequently as well and cannot get any of these shoes

    Sneaky trick:
    1) buy Shoe Goo
    2) apply a few dots
    3) dry over night
    4) repeat for 4-5 days
    It's rips the crap out of a grass court if you slide.

    There a total waste of money unless ur a pro or extremely rich!

    all you have to do is put them down on concrete and the soles start to disentergrate!
