KSwiss Ultrashot v KSwiss Hypercourt Supreme, fit similar?

I love the Ultrashot I & II and would like to try the Hypercourt Supreme - for those who have worn both, are they similar fit-wise? Ultrashots fit my feet pretty perfectly. Thanks!

I have worn both and the fit is different. If you have a full volume foot, the Supreme is the shoe. The same foot will fit into the Ultrashot, but with less room. I feel like there is more cushioned feel to the Supreme and a more connected feel to the Ultrashot.

I’m at 12.5 but Supremes don’t come in half sizes. For those that wear them better to get 12 or 13? I will also be using custom orthotics.

What’s the widest K Swiss shoe?

Well, they do come in half sizes, just apparently not above 11.5. Having said that, I'm a 10.5 in most shoes, and went down to 10s for the Supremes, so I'd say go w/ the 12s.

The Supremes are definitely on the 'wide' side of the fit scale, but if you're looking for the widest shoe in their line, I believe the Express 2s are what you're looking for. I was part of the playtest last year, and they were just a tad too wide for me, and I wear braces on both ankles all the time.

And if the regular Express 2s aren't wide enough, they also come in 2E widths.

My suggestion to most players is to look at your favorite shoes and find your Euro Size. It tends to be more precise. Kswiss Supreme classically runs about a half size large(US) for most. I would double check your Euro size if you can. I have not tried the Express 2, but I do really like the overall feel of the Supreme.

Completely agree with your assessment. The Express are wider but I feel offer less support. The Supreme is a great shoe. Really enjoying them!

IMHO, the Supreme is a highly underrated shoe. I was able to convince a few of the teens that I coach to give KSWISS a try, and lo...they wear them with the smug awareness that they have a shoe warranty that the other major manufacturers abandoned. For juniors training on the hot hard courts of Phoenix, AZ...durability guarantees are essential.

Ordered the Supreme. Was on sale locally. Hopefully they work out. I’m a 12.5 but still ordered a 13 to accommodate my rigid orthotic and Thorlos.

Just ordered them as well in size 10, the same as my Ultrashots. Looking forward to comparing, I'll post up my findings.

Supremes arrived today. I must say they look much better in person. Great looking shoe. I got the black version.
The 13 with custom orthotic is a bit long, but the 12 would have been to short plus I was wearing dress socks when I tired, was heading to work.
They seem to fit my 2E foot no issues and they will break in from what I have read. Seem very comfortable, really really comfortable just waking around.
I just hope with thicker socks I can fill in the length a bit. I’m optimistic.
Got a lesson tonight, I’ll find out.

My feet are 12.5ish. I wear 12.5 in all manner of shoes I regularly wear. But KSWISS only provides 12 or 13. So I learned through trial and error with the Supreme and Hypercourt Express to go with 12. I use the green insole. The 12s are ok, but I couldn’t get a brace and my foot comfortably in a 12 so you probably made the right decision.

Just had an hour lesson. Shoes are fantastic. Didn’t feel them, for me that’s a compliment. My NB Lavs I feel after an hour lesson.
Nice cushioning.
Only thing that right off the bat I could see being a weak spot is the heel support. It’s pretty flimsy. No rigid heel support to lock you in.
Im not a huge fan of booty construction type shoes but these are fine, it has more give in the tongue, especially great if you using thicker insoles.

Ha I received mine today as well. They were on my doorstep when I returned from a lunchtime hit. Very flexible and comfy out of the box. Same exact length as Ultrashot but as @PhxRacket said, more volume throughout. With my insoles and a thicker sock I think it will be perfect. Already ordered a second pair to go with my Ultrashots (4 pair, lol Imelda Marcos). Ultrashots for training, Supreme for game day.

I used to be all Yonex but they have gone too narrow. I'm so glad I got to playtest the Ultrashot, I would have never thought to try K-Swiss otherwise.

Well after breaking in and playing about 8 hours in the Hypercourt Supreme's...I love this shoe! So I bought 2 more pairs (can't beat the sale price). I originally wanted to try it because I have this bump on the pinkie toe side of my foot (tailor's bunion) so I wanted a bit of extra room to help it heal.
Great combo of cushioning, comfort with plenty of stability.
Definitely more room overall than the US2 so I double sock it and use runner's loop and it fits great.
Once the foot heals I'll use the US for singles and HS for dubs (primarily) since when I play dubs it's usually for 3+ hours so I like the most comfort possible.
