Comments: These are ready out of the box. Quick and light. I am 43 years old and use them aggressively on hard
court. I am bummed that this model is discontinued because I have found them to be the lightest shoe I've tried.
Comments: Hi, I'm a typical clay court grinder. I need to move fast and react abruptly. I was trying many shoes, but
all of them were over 400 grams, which is simply too heavy (my foot is 42.5). Wearing them (independent on the number of
technology systems they put into it) I get injured much more easily. I tried this one and I fell in love. It's about 370 grams, has a
great clay court outsole and also looks nice and stylish. And it's really difficult to find a quality lightweight shoe that matches my
expectations. This one does.
Comments: These shoes have got to be the best-kept secret in tennis! They are built like a running shoe, but with
just enough lateral support for a strong, agressive player on clay. I wouldn't wear them on a hard court (too little support, too
little cushioning), but these are the best shoes I've ever tried for clay court play. (Either the real red stuff, or the fake green stuff.)
They are super fast with a very low ride and great court feel, and have the perfect amount of ventilation for clay court play. (Too
much ventilation on clay is a really bad thing.) My hard orthotics work great in these; the heel counter is high enough to
accomodate them easily. All around, the perfect shoe for clay court play. The only possible negative is that if you play on real
clay, these won't stay white for even one set.... The do stay clean on the fake green stuff.
Comments: I bought a pair of Speedsters because they were not too pricy and I was looking for a lighter weight
shoe in order to improve my court speed and footwork. A lot of shoes are supposed to be "ready out of the box" but these actually
are. I put them on and felt confident enough to play a match with them right away. The stability was great. At no time did I feel
like I was unstable moving laterally, or that I was going to roll an ankle. The flex in the forefoot is great, and allowed me to get to
net much faster for dropshots, and volleys while moving forward.
The cushioning wasn't overly squishy or hard. It felt like the Nike Lunarlon cushioning in one of my pair of running shoes. I played
a hard fought 2 and 3 set match in 3 days and my legs do not feel tired in the slightest! As far as durability, it's still early. Though
i will say there is no noticeable tread wear as of yet, and I feel my footwork is more efficient so I didn't seem to be beating up my
shoes as much as heavier shoes. Probably something to check out if you want a more affordable option to a Nike Vapor type shoe.
Comments: This is a great shoe! I switched from adidas Barricade's and these are 100 percent better. The pros of
this shoe are low to the ground ride, great traction (I play on clay and I was very impressed), very breathable, super comfortable
(thinking about buying a pair as regular street shoes), and superior arch support. There are no cons of this shoe.
Comments: This is a nice, lightweight, and stable shoe. The comfort and traction are the main reasons why I love to
play in Speedsters.
Comments: I am always searching for the light shoe that is comfortable and also provides proper support. One
reason I want them light is that I add my own orthotic insole to all my shoes to avoid plantar issues. The Speedster is definitely
light and my mobility and stability seems good. I play singles twice a week and doubles about twice also. I can't comment on
wear as I've only had them a few weeks. I do wish the tongue had more padding as I can practically feel the laces on the top of my
foot. In fact, a little more overall padding would be desirable to add a more glove-like feel but I guess that also adds weight. One
negative comment I will make is about the price. Tennis Warehouse is charging the same price as you can get them for on the K-
Swiss web site which I found surprising. I found that out after I had already bought them. I may comment again later once they
have had more wear.
