    Guys, I have a $100 gift card that has to be used to buy kswiss shoes off their own web site. I've never had a pair of kswiss. How about some advise on which kswiss shoes are the best? Thanks for your help!

    I tried the new misole but it comes up too high around my foot. My feet are extremely narrow. Have shown my pair to two teen girls who wear the same size and they don't even want to try them on. Just not their style they say. Hmm.

    Well, I passed along my K-Swiss miSouls along to a team mate and she LOVES them. Her foot is a 9 as well but wider than mine. I spoke too early in the string...not every shoe fits every foot. The color accents in them are great looking with some of the jewel tone apparel out there at the moment.

    the Ascendors are good for light practice or for working out but I would recommend Stabilor SLS mesh if you are looking for a performance shoe.

    I have two pairs of the ultra naturals and I love them. Super comfy right out of the box and they seem pretty durable. Plus they look cool. I'm not sure if you can still find these though.

    I will be keeping an eye on this thread. I love the UltraNaturals, I am down to my last pair. I am trying to find a replacement right now.

    I like the Stabilor SLS Mesh a lot and i've tried a lot of shoes over the years. Don't get the non-mesh, it is too stiff. Ultrascendor is decent also.

    I just got the Pro C and they are great. No break in required and are very comfy. Highly recommend them!!

    The Pro C's look a lot like the ultra naturals. Probably just an updated version

    I currently wear the UltraAscender and I am very happy with them. I removed the insoles and replaced them with Powerstep Pinnacle insoles. It is a great combination.

    I like the Defier RS, but found they ran a tad shorter than their advertised size. Not a full half length shorter, more like a size 10 really fit like a size 9 3/4. I just wear very thin socks and they're good to go. Had them for over 6 months and there's little wear on them

    I've always liked KSwiss shoes. I have wider feet and they've fit me fine. Last January for kicks I got a pair of Nike Vaporlights or something like that. Though snug, they felt great while playing but I didn't realize they were compressing my foot and causing a problem. I developed a painful condition in my left foot called Metatarsalgia which has taken all year to clear up completely. I've gone a couple of different kswiss shoes since then and having gone back to the kswiss stopped the Metatarsalgia from exasperating and allowed my foot to heal while still allowing me to play.

    Every time I need shoes I usually try out a different kswiss model. I do find that playing a lot on hard courts wears through the soles pretty fast, maybe 2-3 months tops. But I learned the hard way, you've got to get the right shoes and for me that's kswiss.

    I'm just finishing off a pair of Stabilor SLS Mesh, the next in line is Ascendor SLT which is discontinued so can be found very cheap. Last fall I had Defier RS and before that Glaciator SCD. I like the look of the Defier miSOUL but I think the changeable insole is gimmicky and unnecessary and their more expensive than I'd like to pay.

    Can't say I have a favorite, I've only used their high end shoes and they all felt good to me.

    I wore the misoul this summer. Good shoe for hard courts outside in the heat. I liked the 2 soles that you can decide which one you want to wear that day. Very expensive $110.00. Not bad if you have a gift card.:twisted:
