Looking for a maximum cushioned shoe!

#1
Hi-
I've developed knee problems over the years and now in the market for a new shoe. I tried the Gel Solution v3 and Lotto Ultra Viper IV recently upon recommendation, but they both bothered my feet/ knees at the end of a match... I use my own inserts (custom orthotics) plus heavy padded Thorlo socks.

I'm looking for a shoe that has MAX cushioning... any help would be appreciated!
Thanks again.

When you say "max cushioning" the following shoes come to mind: Diadora Speedstar K (I LOVE this shoe!), Babolat SFX3, KSwiss HyperCourt Express and the Head Revolt Pro 2.5.

I wouldn't say any of these are "light and fast" though -- so if you are willing to add some weight in return for some cushioning, then these would be my suggestions. If you still want a relatively light, fast shoe the Gel Court FF might be a good option as well as the Air Zoom Zero.

Hope that helps,

Any updates planned for the Diadora Speed Star K series?
@Jocke

This shoe continues to get small updates but remains true to what it has always been, a very comfortable option with a soft upper that still offers good performance.

We will see 2 new colors at the beginning of 2019, but nothing crazy in terms of tech changes!

I'm actually wearing mine right now!
