    Rafa Nadal - shoes 2024

    Hi all, I was hoping you could shed some light on Rafa’s tennis shoes. Clearly he’s not playing in the model which Nike advertises as „Rafa” but also it seems the model itself is no longer being sold (Zoom Cage). Do you know why Rafa loves those shoes and why Nike sells „Rafa shoes” which are...

    Tennis-specific insoles anyone?

    Has anyone found a tennis-specific insole? I've found most aftermarket insoles to be overly soft and not stable enough for tennis anyway though Ok for casual use. I'm not big on gel for the same reasons and add the fact that gel insoles are frequently rather heavy. I've had decent luck with...

    My 10 year old kid's shoes end up with holes on uppers with in a month. He says he slides to get the ball, and ends up scraping the inside of the shoe.

    Verdict on Tennis Orthotics

    Orthotics or insoles seem to be one of the few ways us mere mortals without sponsorships and custom shoes can really improve the shoes we play in. In theory, they can allow for better comfort, better energy return, and injury prevention. However, I've also heard that Federer never played with...

    Babolat: this is inexcusable fail on Jet Mach III < 12h practice time

    These shoes had barely 12h of actual training on-court... I just casually discovered this big gap in the outer sole.... and suspect it could have been one reason for a slippage and nasty fall on court.... So stay away from these for porous concrete hard courts, they are totally inadequate for...

    Best Tennis Shoes for Wide Feet

    Looking to try new tennis shoes (preferably Nike), I currently use Nike Cage (Rafa edition) but they are on the expensive side and the toe area on the left foot tends to get worn out faster than the sole. I tend to drag my left foot on my backhand which is most likely the reason why that...

    Can anyone recommend the best recent, available shoes you've tried for relatively narrow heels but a medium/wide toe box (width wise)? I find many shoes are unstable in the heel area and my feet tend to move around at the back. However, if I go down size(s), the toe box becomes far too tight...
