Tennis Magazine reveals the year’s best tennis shoes in its annual shoe guide, appearing in the May/June issue of America’s largest tennis publication. A panel of male and female players across the United States tested 15 shoes in the areas of cushioning, flexibility, stability, breathability, traction, weight, fit, and aesthetics. The results of the testing show that Yonex’s POWER CUSHION ECLIPSION leads the pack in stability and cushioning.
Indisputable winner in stability and cushioning
The new POWER CUSHION ECLIPSION is highly praised for its exceptional combination of stability and underfoot cushioning. The shoe features an inner bootie for natural comfort with an improved fit, and offers superb protection from the midfoot to heel. The upper is made with Durable Skin material, which provides firm support as well as a flexible structure. Additionally, the 3-LAYER POWER CUSHION technology offers an extraordinary level of comfort, making the shoe “play lighter than its static weight”, one tester said.
The POWER CUSHION ECLIPSION is the shoe of choice for players such as World No. 3 Stan Wawrinka (VCORE Duel G 97), Martina Hingis (EZONE DR 100, POLYTOUR FIRE 125/POLYTOUR PRO 125), and Leander Paes (VCORE SV 100, POLYTOUR SPIN 125). “In tennis, you don’t know where you’re going to go next, so you need to be stable on your feet,” Stan commented, “stability is important for my footwork. When I feel confident with my footwork, I can play my powerful game.”
