Comments: I agree w/ the laces. The metal eyelets are unnecessary. It makes it harder to tighten them and they came off after just playing twice. It is a comfortable shoe though.
Comments: I had to send the first pair back because of the fit. Seem to fit 1/2 size smaller than my Prince shoes. I like the comfort and because I am on the court for about 6 to 7 hours a day they have really helps my foot comfort. Seem very durable and hopefully will last longer that previous shoes.
Comments: This shoe is durable, but the lacing is very bad.I need to keep shoe strings in my bag because the metal breaks them so often.
Comments: Comfortable shoes but laces wear out very quickly due to metal eyelets...on 3rd pair in under 3 months
Comments: I play about 12-18 hours a week and these shoes didn't last more than 3 months. They're very comfortable but they wear out fairly quickly.
Comments: Overall very comfortable shoes, good stability, and grips. I played on my H.S. team with these. Fair to say the soles lasted 3 months. I played in them 6 days a week. The first to go are under the balls of your feet, then the toe drags, and finally, the sides by your big toe. The insides are still in very good shape. I really like them but is it worth $90 for 90 days? Only your wallet (or parents) can decide.
Comments: I've worn this shoe for about 6 months, which is a tribute to the shoe's durability. I have a narrow foot. At first, the shoe was extremely comfortable. Lately, the shoe has lent itself to give quite a bit. I think this shoe may be best suited for persons with wider feet. Overall, I was happy with the purchase but I know need to lay these shoes to rest.
Comments: I am a believer in these shoes. I would say I am a fast mover for my age, 52, and am a 4.0. They are a little heavier but the benefit of how my feet feel makes it well worth it for me. As with all tennis shoes these have some negatives: the eyelets wear on the laces and the tongue is a bit short, but to this point neither has caused me to switch to another shoe. I must admit to trying to find a better shoe, but I keep coming back. If you have heel pain, or perhaps a somewhat wider foot, give �em a try.
Comments: I've tried lots of shoes but I really like the way these shoes fits my foot. I'm slightly wider than a mid sized width. I prefer these to the New Balance shoes in a wide width. I like the looks and cushioning and the way they feel right out of the box. For me, these shoes last me about two months when the shoe starts to lose its greatness. At that point the shoes lose their support and cushioned feel. I wish they would make the sole in the forefoot more durable. By two months the sole is pretty much slick and I all I can do is wear it to do yard work. Also I wish they would round out the shoe lace holes. The edges are too sharp and wear out the laces very quickly. If they're going to design it that way, there should be an extra pair of laces in the box. The rubber designs above the heel start peeling away from the heel right at that two month times as well. So all in all, I'd say these shoes are good for two months and it's time to get another pair. I love the way they fit but I wish they'd last longer.
Comments: Length is true. Width is sort of a narrow medium. Comfort average. Stability above average. Tread patter is better than KSwiss of the past. Overall, this is not as good a shoe as the Ultrascendor. The Ultrascendor has much better cushioning and a much better feel on the foot. Also, the tongue on this shoe is too short so you have to keep yanking at it to keep it up. Nice looking shoe though. My advice, stick with the Ultrascendor, it's a cheaper and better shoe.
Comments: These are the best shoes ever. I am the biggest guy you will ever meet and boy do they hold up! Love you guys!
Comments: I tried a pair of these after having 7 pairs of Defier RS in 2.5 years. I liked the Defiers but wanted a bit more durability. Fit/Sizing: I understand that these use the same last as the Defier RS, but the toe box, though wide,
seems tighter. Comfort: Shock absorption, toe box (wide) and arch support (with Superfeet orthotics) are all good. Though they appear to lack ventilation, counter-intuitively, I have not found them to be hot, and I have
played in them on many mid-90-degree+ days. Stability: They live up to their name; lateral stability is excellent, better than any other shoe I've used. Durability: I'm 5' 10", 184 lbs and play 3 or 4 times/week. So I've probably played 70 to 90 sets in them, mostly singles. The uppers exhibit no signs of wear; the soles do show signs of wear but nothing
abnormal. Annoyance: The shoes use funky-shaped, metal eyelets which eat the laces. The original laces broke a couple weeks ago, and the new ones are also fraying at the eyelets. This is obviously a design fault which is, frankly, inconsistent with the shoe's price point and KSwiss' reputation.
Would I buy them again? Dunno: I'm not sure the increased durability over the Defier RS (perceived at this point) compensates for the heavier weight and the lace issue/annoyance.
Comments: I have played in these shoes for three weeks now, and I am so impressed. My heel problems have virtually disappeared. I would recommend these shoes to anyone with any kind of foot problem. I can again play 5 days a week. Hard Court, Clay and the Hot, Humid Houston Heat.
Comments: Deep in the heart of Hot and Humid Houston, Texas, I can't wait to get these
shoes. My experience with K-Swiss has been wonderful. I currently will only play K-Swiss due to my foot problems and the chance to run around on these hot Texas hard courts in cooler shoes..is a blessing. Again, Kudos to TW.
Comments: I'm traveling this week to Fort Worth, and I had neglected to pack my Glaciator
SCD shoes with the rest of the tennis gear. So the first thing I did when I got to the TCU courts was buy a pair of K-Swiss shoes. Fortunately the only thing they had in my size was the Stabilor SLS mesh. And luckily for me, it needed no break-in period. Having wider feet, I found this shoe was like walking on clouds from the first few steps. I'm not yet sure how they will perform on scorching hard court surfaces during the summer. That's where the Glaciators worked well. We shall see.
Comments: This is the ultimate big guy's shoe. I am 6'3, 210 lbs. and have a hard time finding shoes that have a balance between cushioning and stability, AND that can support a person with a big frame. These shoes work really well. The cushioning is perfect, with a low, stable ride. I literally don't want to take them off. They have a shape that is best for a person with a little wider forefoot, they do not have a narrow fit. This is a great shoe for people who supinate, or have high, inflexible arches, or suffer from plantar fascitis as I have. Most comfortable shoe I have ever worn, and best performing.
Comments: I love KSwiss shoes and had settled into the Defier as my shoe of choice. It offered the best balance of mobility, cushion and support that I've seen. Unfortunately, and for whatever reason, it appears KSwiss has stopped making this shoe in my size (14). I got the Stabilors and have worn them about 6 times. I still prefer the Defier, but it does seem to be fairly comparable. My only complaint so far has been that I felt my foot start to roll once. I did a side by side comparison with my old Defiers and noticed the Stabilors are more narrow at the base of the heel. Other than that, these shoes seems solid.
Comments: I've only worked out in the shoe once. The description is adequate. It has excellent lateral stability and extra mesh for added cooling. However, if you are concerned about your toes slamming into the front of the shoe during play, this may not be the shoe for you. It is almost impossible to tighten the toe-box due to the design of the lace holes. I might be able to take care of this with extra socks, but then what's the point of extra mesh for cooling? It would appear that KSwiss put cosmetic over functional for the Stabilor line. After all, if you're going to add mesh for cooling, why make the mesh black!
Comments: This has a nice fit and is durable, but it's an ugly shoe.
