This year sees Yonex shoes awarded with French magazine Tennis Addict’s gold medal for a fifth consecutive time. This time the shoes in question are Stan Wawrinka’s POWER CUSHION ECLIPSION shoes. Clad in the new shoes, Stan has already picked up two titles this year at the Aircel Chennai Open and Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships. The ECLIPSION supports your game with varied stiffness on the inside, middle and outside of the foot to bring out one’s ideal performance. Furthermore, the unique seamless design of the shoe allows for a uniform fit. Learn more about the technology in the ECLIPSION in this video.
Like last year, testing was carried out both in labs and amongst a panel of players and other professionals in the sporting industry—specifically designed to provide enthusiasts with the complete picture. Shoes are evaluated in the areas of performance, comfort, stability and shape retention. The review praised the ECLIPSION’s superior stability, as well as the high level of comfort provided by the POWER CUSHION. The review also touched upon how the shoe provides security for players with unstable ankles.
Furthermore, the EZONE DR 98 received the bronze medal in the magazine’s racquet test. The review praised the racquet’s ability to support aggressive players with a good balance of power and accuracy.
