Tennis Shoes for the Modern Woman

For many decades, tennis shoes for women have pretty much all looked the same. There had not been a significant change in appearance until recent times. When shopping for such footwear, the standard colour had always been white; sometimes with white streaks on the sides. White on white, what a novelty then. In that era, it was mostly the design of the bottom of the shoe that was highlighted rather than the aesthetic aspects of the upper portion, that is obviously more visible.

From the late 1990’s to the present, tennis shoes for women  became a fashion statement and “bling” was and currently is still very popular.Up until then there was nothing fashionable about tennis shoes nor was there anything pretty about having to find tennis shoes with a larger than normal toebox to accommodate your bunions. Use of mesh had not really become hip yet to cater to your sweaty feet.

Nowadays female tennis players can get fashionable tennis shoes to satisfy such problems and they are proudly made by the same companies that manufacture their reputable tennis gear. Babolat, Prince, Head, and Wilson are the most prominent companies that make tennis racquets as well as tennis shoes for women. While all these are good, quality shoes, Prince and Babolat scored some rave reviews.

Babolat has some amazing colours. While looks matter to the vanity market, the performance of the shoe cannot be overlooked. Backed by Michelin durability, you can count on Babolat tennis shoes to have much traction on the courts. The technology incorporated into these shoes has taken into consideration injury prevention, addressing heel cushioning and features lightweight construction. This company offers an “out of the box comfort” with a “no break in” period required.

Prince serves up their Lightspeed and T Series for women that will give the most finicky of female tennis players an opportunity to select a colourful shoe without sacrificing safety, support, and performance on the court. Shock absorption is addressed with their signature cushioning. Mesh is also a standard component in this shoe.

With other popular shoes such as New Balance, consumers are not disappointed when finding an attractive wide width shoe. The fashion sense has seeped over into the men’s styles as indicated by the variety of greens, blues, and reds found in tennis shoes, thereby unifying the genders. Having an array of fashionable tennis shoes, the next task for women is to find that fashionable tennis bag to match!
