Click on the S curve video in the middle of this web page to see the support system of a tennis shoe is from New Balance. http://www.newbalance.com/New-Balanc...efault,pd.html


Similar types of support are engineered into all top of the line tennis shoes.

For instance, Asics calls their stabilization system the "trusstic system", and you can learn more about by clicking on the GEL-RESOLUTION 4 video on this page:

Adidas has the "Torsion System":






Looking at the web sites for the different manufacturers today, it seems there are less pics on their stabilization systems than in the past.
Maybe they don't want to give competitors insight into their specific designs.
