Comments: Very nice shoes for light hitting and off court. I got these in a size 11.0 even though I buy 10.5 normally in Lotto, and I think this particular shoe runs small. However, they are very comfortable and I'm so glad I was able to purchase this shoe, especially at sale price. Thanks TW.

Comments: I bought two pairs on sale thinking they'd be good for light hitting days and as walking shoes. I've had them for over a month now and, I'm not certain, but I think I might understand a little bit now why women get so nuts over shoes. They are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. They have held up better than expected, soles and all, for light hitting and I've even played aggressively with them. They're super light, making for quicker feet, and I feel much more connected to the court. After about a week with the first pair I decided to buy 4 more pairs, and yesterday I noticed they had them in red so I picked up 3 more. I hope Lotto never stops making them because I'm hooked. (Hopefully there's a support group for my growing affliction)!

Comments: I bought these because I just don't like overbuilt athletic shoes. I was playing in minimalist running shoes but the soles were too slick, so I figured I'd give these a try. Bought three pairs as they are cheap. For my level of play (advancing 3.0 or thereabouts) and my style (win by covering the court and moving quickly) they are fine. I've been playing an average of 2.5 times per week with drills, lessons, or matches. They are holding up fine. The support is fine. I like to feel the court, and I can. I don't worry about rolling an ankle. In fact, I'd worry more about ankle rolling in the over built thick sole shoes because your standing on high heels. I'm taking these to a tennis camp in Hilton Head in three weeks and they'll get 20 hours of play or so in a week, so that will be a test of durability. They're so cheap, buy three pair and rotate 'em.

Comments: Really, really nice looking, but I cannot imagine how anyone could possibly play tennis in them. The insert is completely flat with no arch support whatsoever, so I bought a Sof Sole Athlete Insoles and now these shoes are perfect for walking around all day.

Comments: The Lotto Quaranta has fulfilled my quest for a "minimalist" tennis tennis shoe. They are very light, little heel to toe drop, and great proprioceptive input as to where my feet are and what they are doing. The mesh keeps my feet cool in the summer. Yes, they do not last as long as a "regular" tennis shoe, but playing 2-3 times a week at a 3.0-3.5 level, I get three months out of a pair. At $30 a pop on sale, what a bargain! I've gone through 3 sets and have three more in the closet. If you are thinking about regaining the feel from your feet as they move, I recommend trying these shoes. My girlfriend wishes they made them for women!
From: Gary, 2/15

Comments: My comments are consistent with everyone's on this shoe. I purchased these whimsically, expecting minimal workmanship, comfort, and durability. While the third expectation was spot on, the first two were entirely false: this shoe is engineered, assembled expertly and I have never worn a more comfortable shoe. To reiterate the comments of others: I would never play tennis/exercise with these. Regardless, I have sported legendarily comfortable footwear from Vibram, adidas, NB, etc., and I can contend that these Lotto shoes belong in such company. Big thanks to Lotto for the shoe and TW for the awesome deal!

Comments: The only shoe that irritates the top arc of my foot (the top of my foot, where the laces are). Otherwise it is a good looking, comfortable shoe. It is a very basic shoe, nothing fancy in terms of support below and above the foot.
From: Nick, 12/14

Comments: Wouldn't recommend for play. I played 2 or 3 times with them and the toe portion had already started to come apart. Agree that they're comfortable and lightweight. Wear them out and about but not to play in -- especially if you're a toe dragger!
From: Dwayne, 11/14

Comments: Like Kev said, super lightweight and super comfortable. And like he said I won't be playing in these. I string for a University and on match days when I'm not stringing I walk the courts and help the team keep all the balls and other gear picked up before and after the matches. I'll wear these shoes for that, but the bottoms are so soft that I feel that they would tear up too much if I were to slide or make an aggressive cut for a ball. Overall, great shoes just to wear around and if you work at a facility or something and have to just go on court for something to wear for that.
From: David, 9/14

Comments: Super lightweight, and super comfortable. I definitely will NOT play tennis in these, but when I'm not playing tennis I probably won't ever take these off! I like them that much!
From: Kev, 6/14

Comments: Picked these up specifically for an upcoming trip to Tokyo to visit my wife's family. Needed a comfortable shoe that I could walk around town in and play some tennis in as well. These more than fit the bill. These Lotto shoes were super comfortable right out of the box and I was was surprised by how well I could play in the Lottos (not just "light" tennis). I am a 4.5 player and my wife is a 4.5/5.0 player and I would say that I could get up to 95% of my full play with these shoes on. It was only in extreme instances of changing directions quickly that I started feeling a little less sure of my footing than I do with my normal adizeros. On the plus side these shoes are extremely comfortable! I put in many miles of walking around Tokyo in them and no complaints at all! Very happy with this purchase!
From: Brock, 6/14

Comments: Just got these today. When I first picked up the box it almost felt like there weren't any shoes inside. These shoes are super light but with lighter shoes you tend to give up support and cushioning. I don't play any serious tennis anymore so these are probably okay for me. These are good for recreational use or around town but not for real tennis matches.
