    Played in some Diadoras waaay back in the day. Comfortable, soft ride, but not so durable back then. They seemed to disappear from tennis, at least from my tennis world. Glad to see them back in the fold with some impressive looking offerings.

    Loved the Guga! I like TW's commitment to lesser known brands with deep tennis background.

    Recently, I was wearing the Speed Star K line. Extremely comfortable, but not very durable on the toe (I'm a toe-dragger). Burned through the top well before the sole. These Speed Blueshield 2s look like they have more protection right where I was wearing through. Bummed I missed this playtest (although I probably wouldn't have been selected since I just did the Babolat SFX).

    I'll be checking in on this to see what the verdict is. Enjoy!

    I do know that Diadora’s been around for a long time, but what do they exactly specialize in? My lack of knowledge on the brand had me thinking it was a gimmicky sneaker company, like the LA Gear shoes that was once popular with the girls.
