    If Babolat made a high 50s RA version of the Pure Aero mold...

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    agreed - additionally i'd say the answer is somewhere between finding good insoles and good cushion midsole on a shoe

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    Interesting to note the pressure mapping in the photo above. I wonder what that would look like for a tennis player, who is constatly pivoting, split-stepping, and landing on the forefoot area

    The Decline of Proper Cushioning

    Nike released React over two years ago, since the release, not a single tennis shoe incorporates react into it's cushion setup My comment above was rooted in sarcasm, we likely won't see Joyride tech in any tennis shoe, ever

    Did Lacoste Tennis just miss their biggest revenue opportunity of the year?
