Update coming to Wilson Glide?

#1
Hello,

I recently came across a video advertising the Wilson Glide line. Went to the Wilson shoe page here, and noticed all but one shoe was on clearance. Is Wilson getting out of the shoe business, and if not, can I possibly expect an update to the Wilson glide? Definitely seemed like a solid option, but have not been able to find any.

Wilson is NOT leaving the shoe business, but their flagship shoes are the Rush Pro and the Kaos.

From what we have heard from Wilson, I don't think they will be updating the Glide. In full disclosure, it was a bit of a slippery shoe with that plastic piece on the outsole and did have some issues. I personally would not recommend that shoe to most people. It was especially weary off court ;) We did not love it.

However, I can highly recommend the Rush Pro! Those shoes offer great cushioning and support! And they will be getting updated in 2019. The Kaos will be the speedier shoe from Wilson -- I love the flashy cosmetics, and they have updated that shoe to have a nice toe box to avoid any toe-jam.

Hope that helps,

Michelle, TW

Good to know, thank you! I had heard a few good things about the Glide, but glad to hear that it was probably not the route to go. I definitely prefer the lighter weight shoes these days, but am also thinking of trying to learn hardcourt sliding as well. Have you found any particular shoes to be more conducive to that? @TW Staff

Cup8489,

The Nike Air Zoom Vapor X or the Asics Solution Speed FF might be some good options to look into.

Thanks,
