There are literally hundreds of viable tennis shoes for men. So can’t you just pick up any old pair and get to it?
Well, remember, you want to get a pair that will both prevent injury and keep you comfortable, with an added bonus of increasing your level of play. Plus, you want to look good (Right? You manly man!)
I’ll make it easy by laying out your best options and give you a general description on each pair.
The latest in the popular Barricade series, this tennis shoe remains a consistent pro and casual favorite. Regarded as one of the best tennis shoes for men, it offers proper ankle support, cushions, and lateral functionality, all without sacrificing aesthetic appeal. It received an overall score of 4.0 from Tennis-Warehouse, with the toe durability and overall sole durability ranking at 5/5. Andy Murray loves this shoe and can be seen wearing it more often than not.
An upgrade in the popular Nike Zoom Vapor series that was custom created for Roger Federer himself. As graceful as the man this shoe was designed for, the aesthetics shine through. Lightweight, comfortable, and an overall solid shoe, it does sacrifice a bit of durability. It scored an overall 4.5/5 on Tennis-Warehouse, despite its low marks for durability.
Yonex Power Cushion Pro was rated an overall 4.2 on Tennis-Warehouse. It’s a bit heavier than the other shoes above, but its durability scored incredibly high with 4.6 and 4.4 for toe and sole durability respectively. Despite its weight, there is little impact on comfort as it scored a solid 4.4 for comfort.
