Artengo shoes and apparel?

Okay for the price. Obviously the super cheap €5 stuff is super cheap bargain bin, you get what you pay for. But if you pay a bit more like €10 or €20, it's pretty nice for the price, especially on sale. Or at least, I like the materials: it feels soft, doesn't stick like a plastic bag, doesn't scratch, performs well IMO. As far as the shoes, their top shoe is the TS990, which retails for €65. I had the previous version, which is nigh identical but had different eyelets. It's nowhere near a top performance shoe, but for the price I haven't seen a shoe from big brands that comes close. The issue is that I can find top performance shoes on sale for about the same price, more or less 10€. In other words, and considering how I churn on shoes, there's no reason for me to ever buy the shoes when I can get better performance shoes for an equivalent price; even if I'm aware it's because of sales that this is possible. I probably should pick up a spare clay pair of shoes on sale for like 40€; now that would be a good deal for a shoe I would very infrequently use.

Not completely linked, but from the balls I've used, their TR930 is my favourite. It's the extra duty version of the TR920, which is used on some ATP level tournaments in France. The only complaint is that it's not much cheaper than the big brand balls; a bit cheaper, but not by much.Their "Comfort" overgrip are my favourite as well (even over more popular choices like the SuperGrap!); haven't tried the others from the brand though.

To sum it up, the cheap stuff is very cheap and on par with what you'd expect. However the relatively more/most expensive Artengo and Decathlon branded gear as a whole is pretty good, especially for the price. They can make some good stuff for not much money; just don't believe it's on par with the best of the best obviously.

EDIT: It was these shorts in white/blue/red and this t-shirt in orange that I recently bought.

I wear Artengo kit. It's a good price and seems reasonable quality. I agree about the very cheap stuff, but the more expensive is good. Certainly cheaper paying £8 for shorts as opposed to £20+ for Nike. I haven't tried their shoes though. Stuck with Nike for these and they are a good fit, although I have seen quite a few pairs at my club.

I train with a US$50 Artengo pair of shoes, best quality than Babolat, Prince , Wilson or Nike, I'll be buying another one today.

As for the t-shirts I don't like them, they're good quality but plain in design, I prefer a local brand that has better design at top notch quality.

Shorts and socks are the best quality for the best price.

Can you please name the local brand? I'm interested in.

Artengo TS830 Outsole wore out as fast as Nike. Clearance price £13 is worth it. Standard price £20 is not.
Outsole tread patterns were all gone after 3-4 months.

Then I switched to adidas Barricade Court 3. 4 months and not a hint of any abrasion on the outsole. My last adidas lasted 10 - 11 months. In the end it is far more worth than Artengo.

When I buy in Decathlon, I try to buy only the cheapest items or the top range. Mid-range is not cheap and does not function well.

Ok, I live in Colombia and there are many quality brands, the textile industry is big and the products are well made.
O, great! I always pay attention to small local tennis clothes brands. I remember watching your top player Santiago Giraldo at Paris Master, he played doubles. He weared his own brand Santiago Giraldo. I know nobody except him wear this brand. And i think i could get it only in Colombia, not outside the country.

Yes, as I was telling before, here you can find any number of great quality brands they make anything in any brand you have, you could wear your very own brand and it will not be a cheap looking one.

I like their white shorts and their tennis socks are nice, too. Bought from Decathlon, on par with recent Nike dri-fit shorts while costing fraction of the price (I still have some Federer Nike woven shorts from 8 years ago which are one level up in quality but it’s at least one level up from recent Nike offering, too). I’ll happily shop other Artengo gear in the future.

I see many good reviews on socks and shorts.

Still interesting that he plays with actual artengo racquet and shoes. Means their shoes are enough for a high level doubles pro.
I've had three pairs of different lines, all of them are top quality and the top line that I've bought is better than most lines from top brands.

I don't know about Artengo shoes or rackets, but the apparel is really good value for the money.
Their new shorts seem to have a slightly worse make quality (some loose threads and such, nothing major), but they're still my favorite shorts for tennis with actual good pockets for the balls. By comparison, I have some Babolat shorts and while the general make quality is better, the pockets are absolutely worse and the balls fall out more often.

Artengo shorts are by far my favourite, I don't really mind what top I wear. But the mid range 9 euro shorts are great, large pockets and very comfortable.
