Mizuno does not make a tennis shoe but they do make volleyball shoes. It looks to me like the sole of their volleyball shoes have sections of softer rubber, looks almost "sticky",I think to help plant before jumping. Since I only manage 1 or 2 Sampras style tomahawk overheads per match, that may not be a plus for me.
Just wondering if anyone had tried Mizuno Vball shoes for tennis.
They were on sale at a local sports chain store for $15... I used them on clay and they worked fine.
