Comments: My first pair of Lottos -- this shoe felt good from the get-go with no real break-in period required.
A generally comfortable shoe, but I have wider feet and these definitely seem to be more suited for a narrow foot. Suffered
a foot/heel injury that kept me from playing for 2 months while wearing this shoe. Not sure if the shoe had anything do
with it or not, but it did happen. I play 2-3 times per week for the past 6 years and have never had a shoe with outsoles
worn down as fast as these. I emailed TW 9 days after the 6-month durability guarantee (presumably from date of
purchase) expired and they told me the manufacturer wouldn't honor the outsole warranty (and remember this is with me
not playing for 2 out of the 6 months). So these shoes wore smooth on both outsoles in basically 4 months of playing on
average 3 times per week. I would have gladly tried a different pair of Lottos if they would have honored the 6-month
outsole warranty, but since they have elected not to (rules are rules I guess, snooze you lose) I will not be trying any other
Lottos. Don't want this to sound like a sour grapes review, but compared to several other types of shoes I've tried over the
years, the outsoles on those would usually get me at least 9 months compared to these getting me essentially 4 months.
From: Ryan, 12/15
Comments: I have had zero problems with these shoes. Super comfortable, quick and no issues with
ventilation really. Never had any issues with foot, joint or muscle pain even after playing long 5 set matches while wearing
them. I hope new models of the Raptor do not change as I am planning to sticking to this line for good. I am a 4.5 baseliner
and play mostly on hard courts.
From: Sal, 7/15
Comments: Absolutely satisfied over the past year and 7 months, so I'm just about to get another pair.
Absolutely a consumer-oriented line.
From: Oliver, 7/15
Comments: These are the best shoes I've ever had. I have a slightly narrow foot, and have major issues with
toe jamming. I wear a 10 in dress shoes, and have a hard time getting a shoe that doesn't kill my big toe. In my college
days, I'd get the shoes we got free, and my big toe nails would bleed and fall off. My only recourse was to get extra big
sizes. Now, I wear a size 10.5 in these, and they're perfect. They're the most comfortable shoes I've been able to use. I
hope they don't discontinue them.
From: Eugene, 6/15
Comments: Great pair of shoes -- good stability, support, and traction. The interesting thing is these shoes
feels quite snug at the beginning but sort of expand out after half an hour of playing. I wear size 10 in Nike and adidas and
the size 10 Raptor fits me well.

Comments: Another first time Lotto buyer. Wow, I really like this shoe. I have been wearing Nike Air Max Cage
years but as they're long out of production. After a couple pairs of Asics I thought I'd give these a try. This is my new
shoe. Definitely will get another pair.

Comments: This was my first time wearing Lotto shoes and like others, I'm very impressed. I have wide feet
these shoes were very accommodating. They are very comfortable especially during play. It felt a little weird at first, but
minutes of playing time the shoes just felt like they contoured to my feet. I've been playing with the Nike Vapor 9.5 and
more durable. Hopefully the outsole lasts as I already want another pair in green.

Comments: I have a real hard time finding comfortable and supportive shoes as I broke my left foot several
ago and it has never been right since. Just bought a pair or the Lotto Raptors they felt great out of the box. A few reviews

From: Dave, 1/15
Comments: Thank you TW for the recommendation. An absolutely amazing fit for a narrower foot. As a long
Babolat V-Pro user I was lost looking for a comparable shoe, this Lotto does one better. If you have a narrow foot and like
and secure shoe with a glove like fit I can't see buying shoes without at least trying these.
From: Eric, 11/14
Comments: Love the shoe. First time wearing Lottos and I really like them. Not too narrow, not too wide.
Lightweight yet offers plenty of support. I bought the navy/green and look very well. I plan on getting a second pair.
From: Luiszo, 11/14
Comments: I have a foot that has a forward big toe joint, so my natural size is an 11 narrow. I bought these on
description that they were true to size. When I first put them on, it took a shoehorn, but once they were on they fit like a
and needed no break-in. Great lateral support and light weight. Love them and buying another pair. Hope Lotto keeps
for a long time. 4.0 player over 60, so love the speed and stability.
From: Jon, 11/14
Comments: This Lotto shoe is excellent in all performance categories. I hesitated ordering it due to the TW
Playtesters' review indicating that it fit snug. I was able to sample my friend's pair in my size that he had broken in. The
sizing was spot-on and they were roomy. The Raptor expands comfortably in a brief amount of time to ultimately provide
excellent support, traction, comfort, and aesthetics with a 6-month durability guarantee. I appreciate wearing and winning
Raptors, as do super-hustler David Ferrer, sweet-backhander Nicolas Almagro, and boom-server Kevin Anderson. Thank
Lotto and TW.
From: Robert, 10/14
Comments: Wearing adidas and Nike models, I developed a callous on my right foot, making lateral movement
difficult. adidas is too hard on the sides, and Nike is simply too narrow. I tried the Lotto Raptor Ultra IV Speed, due to
from my son who is a high school tennis player. This shoe is every bit as good as adidas Barricade and Nike Vapor Zoom
models. My natural size is 13, and the fit was snug. But, I still felt irritation on lateral movement. If Lotto made a 13.5
would be perfect, but instead, I moved up to a 14. This was too large, however on the advice of my wife who is an avid
player, I inserted some Sofsole Airr Orthotics. Perfection. Therefore, the Lotto Raptor Ultra IV Speed with the Sofsole Airr
Orthotics makes a real winner -- although expensive. The cost is definitely worth it. I currently wear two shoes -- 1st
the Asics Gel Resolution 5 (the best shoe presently) and 2nd choice is the Lotto Raptor Ultra IV with the orthotics. These

However I grew tired of lessening quality of the Barricades. The Raptors are a very snug shoe. I really like how they are
ready to wear out of the box. They are a very well made shoe with excellent stability. I will definitely be buying future
From: Clayton, 10/14
Comments: I love these shoes, having 2 pairs of them. One is the green and black, and the other is the white
blue. I call these shoes my "Porsches", and my 2 pairs of Asics Resolution 5s as my "Mercedes." These shoes do fit very
snug, like a
glove, but that is what makes them feel like such a high performance instrument. I don't feel them to be heavy at all, (or
heavier than any other shoe).
From: Farhad, 10/14
Comments: I have to agree with Shoeman's review and question whether or not Lotto has sized these shoes
correctly for larger feet. I wear a size 12 and I have a narrow foot and the shoes have a very cramped toe-box. This
some blistering on the toes initially but eventually my toes toughened up and the shoe broke in fairly nice and the shoes
nice performance and responsiveness overall. I tried the 12.5 and the shoes felt less cramped but there was a bit too
lengthwise and I slipped in the heal some so I stuck with the 12s. I like the shoe overall (after break-in) and I'm on my
pair now after wearing out the soles on the first pair, but I'll probably try to find a shoe that has more room in the toe-box
next time. I agree that the shoe does become fatiguing after very long 2+ hour matches. Also, my ankle rolled a few times
had the shoe laced up too tightly which can happen with very snug shoes. I prefer this shoe over the Babolat V-Pro all
which were too wide and not as solid and stiff of construction.
From: Robert, 9/14
Comments: I love these shoes for a variety of reasons. One of the important ones is that if you are like me,
only play through two pairs of shoes a year (not six) you will be pleased to learn that when the uppers of these shoes wear
still supply plenty of support. I bought them because my favorite cleats were always Lotto, for this same reason, and their
shoes did not disappoint. My other major reason is my tendency towards plantar fasciatis and the reactive arch does what
promises: more spring from the sole, without squish in the shoe. The outer contours allow sprite direction change, again,
like a responsive cleat than a cushy tennis shoe. This shoe, coupled with a thinner blue superfeet insole is the best
yet found to protect my abused and aging feet. If it fits you, this is a spectacular shoe for athletic tennis for players who
little extra protection and stability.
From: Stewart, 9/14
Comments: Top 3 shoe off all time! I have been a teaching pro for 25 years and I wore the Lendl back in the
80's early 90's, then Prince NFS, 20 years ago and now this one! Amazing shoe! Great job Lotto.
From: Wade, 9/14
Comments: Great shoes. As a sixty-something, I have been struggling somewhat with movement on the court
because at my age the shoes and fit have become much more important and I just couldn't find good tennis/running shoes
price. The fit and comfort and design of these shoes are the best I've ever encountered. And once again I can move
gracefully around the court. Note that this rave review only applies to the Raptor Ultra IV Speed. I'm a 4.0 mostly doubles
(Volkl mid-plus and strings poly/syngut hydrid).
From: Jim, 8/14
Comments: I find this shoe to be very well made. I'm just coming off a warranty replacement of my Lotto
pair. The Raptor Ultra IV is much better from a quality of fit and finish stand point. The structure, room and balance
height, etc) of this shoe, in my opinion, falls somewhere between a set of Prince T22s (on the fat, high, plush side) and
Barricades (low-profile, firm side). So, it's a very nice, middle of the road choice.
From: Shane, 8/14
Comments: Really amazing shoe. Great support and cushion yet not as heavy like Barricade. No break in
However, it slight narrow as what everyone was saying. Recommended half size larger to get true fit. Will definitely buy

Comments: Based on the positive reviews and having a previously good experience with Lotto shoes, I
pair of the Raptors in my usual size 11. Very surprised upon receiving them that they were "ultra" tight and not something
could possibly use in a game (or even just walking around.) I've worn size 11s in just about every brand of tennis shoe
the past 20 years and never had this issue. Even used to play in 10 1/2s with one model of Prince show with no problem.
Returning them to Tennis Warehouse was not a problem but they didn't have the same shoe in an 11 1/2 and I don't know
or if I'll get to find out if I like this shoe or not.
From: Mike, 8/14
Comments: Follow-up from my previous comments: Just as I anticipated, the shoes totally fulfilled my foot
(having tennis shoes that provided the same comfort, high quality, and performance as my long-gone days of using plush
shoe, before I became more involved in tennis). "Re-enter" the Raptor Ultra IV! Now that I've played numerous hours in
exquisite works of art -- my dreams to have tennis shoes that literally match the comfort, performance, and even style of
racquet (Djokovic's) -- has been fully materialized in these adored and marveled shoes. I've learned how solid foot
positioning is incredibly important to make the best connection with racquet to ball. Thus, a perfect fit when I went down
size from my accustomed leasure footwear size (10.5). Also very beautifully light while being strong enough to take on tons
agressive play. Due to the stated qualities, these shoes certainly have also upgraded my confidence levels to feel that I'm
playing at my best and with no more footwear excuses (which unfortunately have been well founded in the past). Lastly,
I thought I couldn't possibly be any more pleased with these shoes, I go and throw in a perfect fitting pair of Dr. Schol's
supports. These fit incredibly perfect. They aren't the ones that are pure gel. They have medium arch support and crazy-
cushioning that puts this shoe into a space ship and blasts it off to another planet! Happy playing!
From: Jon, 8/14
Comments: Nice shoes. Good support and nice bounce off the ground. I've used the Prince T22s for the last 3
years. I got tired off cutting the hard plastic strip on my right shoe as soon as I got the shoe -- bad design. The Lotto

my new shoe. Only played with them twice -- once on clay and the other hard court so the durability has yet to be
so far so good. They fit a little snug but thats not a problem because they loosen up quite nicely. I'd recommend the shoe. I

From: Sam, 7/14
Comments: These shoes fit perfectly if you have narrow or medium width feet. Outsole is good, not too
grippy/squeaky, not too hard/slippery. Weight is just right. Excellent flex. Durability is maybe a little above average.
aren't as durable as Nadal's shoe, but they are far superior to the Fed Vapor shoe. The two weaknesses of this shoe are its
thin insole (which packs down and is useless after one wearing) and the lack of adequate cushioning in the forefoot. It's
"cushiony" shoe in the ball of the foot area. And last but not least, the shoe appears to be unnecessarily adorned with lots
different materials and panels and features and stitching -- must be an Italian thing.
From: Anon, 7/14
Comments: I ordered these shoes with a bit of trepidation since a few customer reviews stated that it had a
fit. Using TW's sizing chart I measured my socked foot (11.25" length, 4.25" width) and ordered them in a size 11.5. Well I
pleasantly surprised on how well they fit. Just like TW's reviewers had stated, the shoes fit like a glove without feeling tight.

performed some simulated tennis moves on a hard surface, and was impressed on how well they gripped the surface.
though I tape my ankles before match play with the shoes I had been wearing, these shoes felt so stable that I may forgo
extra precaution. This is surprising since the shoe is very supple, not like the harsh stiffness one would find in some other
with comparable stability. My foot never slid inside the shoe even with the most extreme moves and felt comfortably in
all times. I did replace the stock insole with Sorbothane Ultra Soles however, as I have a medium to high arch and felt the
the added arch support. If you like to double knot your shoe laces like I do, you may want to use the extra set of blue shoe
that come with the shoes instead of the white ones as they are a couple of inches longer.

thought these shoes were more cushioned because I was playing on a softer/flexy hard court. After moving to a true hard

From: Ben, 6/14
Comments: Amazing shoe, but took some patience for me. The first pair felt great but the left shoe was a bit
narrow (like my foot was on the edge of the arch/insole) so I sent them back. Second pair felt better but my left toes felt a

loosened a tad after play.
From: John, 5/14
Comments: This is the best pair of tennis shoes I've ever worn. Great support in lateral movement. Great grip.
Perfect fit -- the sizing is spot on. I've always won 10.5 and it fits like a glove. I had the adidas Feather which was too long
narrow. I had too much toe space while the width was spot on. This resulted in too much toes movement when I dash
court. With the Lotto Raptor Ultra IV, I can move without being worried about rolling an ankle -- great shoes! If you can get
on sale at 79.95, it is a steal!
From: Louis, 5/14
Comments: This shoe is close to perfect! With the exception of its mildly supportive insole, I wouldn't change
thing. My initial experience led me to change the insole for one that provided more arch and outside edge support. After
this shoe performed better than any I've worn to date. Support, comfort, and durability inspire confidence the moment you

you great confidence when moving (I switched over from the Asics GR5, since the sides balloon out on that shoe and

at impact but without excess room. I ordered the same size I've used for both adidas and Asics and they fit perfectly. Very

had settled on the Barricade 7s for a while until they changed out to the 8s and I didn't like those. These Lottos are the
combination of comfort and support that I have tried out of any of the other shoes. Plus they have the additional benefit of
very light and agile. Right out of the box, they felt great. Wear seems reasonable. About in line with any of the other
worn. As long as these are available, I'm sticking with them. I'm very satisfied.

shoe I have ever played in. They offer a combination of stability and cushioning unmatched. I wear the same size (9) in the

Comments: Finally! These shoes are just about perfect in every way, shape, and form. I have all kinds of foot
and these offer great lateral and arch support, are nicely cushioned and supple, but still allow for your feet to feel planted
to the ground. They find that perfect middle ground between support, comfort and light feel. I only wish they came in a all
option. These put the Barricades to shame, and best the Vapor 9s in terms of comfort and durability.

tact. Don't think I could recommend these shoes.

Comments: Been a loyal Asics customer for quite a while and will continue to enjoy the fit, support, and
the Gel Resolution and Solution Speed lines. However, this Lotto Raptor is my new favorite shoe because of its supreme
the unique feel of the foot bed. Gives walking and running an almost effortless feel! Only knock is it runs just slightly high
the ankle malleoli for me. Probably will soften up with increased wear. Looks bulky but remains true to size with a slight
consistent with the TW description.
