The Best Men’s Tennis Shoes For 2020

Trying to find a new pair of tennis shoes but unsure about which brand or model to buy? Take a look at my recommendations for the best tennis shoes on the market right now.

Just like choosing the best tennis racquet, when it comes to finding the right tennis shoes, there are quite a few factors that come into play.

Most players tend to have their brand allegiances and colour choice. However, you also need to think about your foot type (everyone walks and runs a little differently and different shoes can aid performance/prevent injury), the surface you play on most frequently, your playing style, the size/shape of your foot and finally your budget.

While many recreational players will play in running trainers, if you start to play with any frequency, you'll soon realise how quickly they get worn down.

Proper tennis shoes are designed to stand up to significant wear and tear, allowing for a lot of stopping & starting, pivots, slides and lateral movement.

All the shoes I've picked out below provide extra lateral support, robust materials, plenty cushioning, decent levels of shock-absorption, and reinforced soles/toe guards.

As someone with quite wide feet and a tendency to stub my toe when playing, I've tried quite a few different shoes over the years from Nike, Asics, Babolat and Prince in the quest for the perfect shoe, so I've been able to test (and continue to do so) a lot of what is on offer.

So while I haven't tried every shoe from every manufacturer (I'm slowly working on it), I've tried most of the best sellers and a mix of lightweight ‘speed' orientated shoes and heavier more durable ones.

As a result, this guide will help you find a tennis shoe that provides a good level of comfort, agility and won't be falling to pieces after two weeks. So let's begin!

A quick word of warning. If you're in the research phase, you have no doubt come across several articles discussing the best tennis shoes. Naturally, they all claim to highlight the best tennis shoes on the market right now, but usually, they're way off. While there is some good information out there, I would honestly take most of the content with a pinch of salt. In the main, these are generic websites that write about every product under the sun from frying pans to tennis shoes. In 99% of cases, the author has zero clue what they are talking about and has never worn the shoes in question. All the shoes I recommend below have been worn on the court and tested.

My Best All-Rounder For 2020

In a rush and want to get the best shoe without reading full reviews? The Gel Resolution 8 is my recommendation for most players as it's such a good all-round shoe.

Asics Gel Resolution 8

Asics Gel Resolution 8 Top Pick

The Gel Resolution is one of the most popular tennis shoes ever made. Several pros wear them like Gael Monfils, Johanna Konta, Fabio Fognini and formerly Novak Djokovic before he switched to the Asics Court FF Novak.

This latest version is the 8th iteration and sees Asics bring a new PU upper with mesh which has a wider toe box. Their Dynawrap and Dynawall help lock in the foot and provide the highest level of support and stability. They have also enhanced the outsole of this shoe with improved pivot points.

What sets this shoe apart and makes it my top pick is its all-around performance. Along with top-notch support, stability and durability, you're also getting a shoe that's comfortable, well-cushioned and fast-feeling. A six-month outsole durability guarantee also tops things off nicely.

Players looking for a high-end tennis shoe that gives them everything they need can purchase the Gel Resolution 8 with utmost confidence.

What Makes a Good Tennis Shoe?

best-tennis-shoes

A good tennis shoe is not a one size fits all thing (pun intended) as most players value some aspects of a shoe more than others. Some want ultra-lightweight to aid with foot speed; others prefer support to stop themselves rolling an ankle.

In general, though, most players are looking for a blend of the following properties:

  • Comfort
  • Durability
  • Stability
  • Support
  • Traction

All tennis shoes manufacturers are producing shoes that offer those characteristics, and they usually have various product lines that either try to offer all those things in equal amounts as an ‘all-round' shoe.

Along with specific models that focus more on one area, e.g. durability, at the expense of another, e.g. speed (or lightweight).

An excellent example of this is the Gel Resolution line which is designed to be a durable all-rounder, compared to the Solution Speed FF, which is a lightweight shoe. While they are similar looking, they are quite different in performance.

My picks below are in the main biased towards durability. Most club players don't have the luxury of an endorsement deal, and from questions I receive via email, durability tends to be the main thing players are looking for. With many often willing to forego a little bit of comfort in exchange for not having to get their wallet out at more regular intervals.

Finally, before we get going here are some general observations about the mainstream brands; it is reasonably well accepted that Nike shoes, for the most part, tend to be very comfortable and slick looking but suffer when it comes to durability.

With Adidas, you historically had the Barricade line which is heavy, super stable, supportive, and very durable, but this also made the model relatively uncomfortable. On the other end, you have the Ubersonic, which is super light and comfortable but not as stable or durable.

Asics do a phenomenal job of being very good in almost all aspects performance-wise and are comfortable, which is why they are my personal tennis shoes of choice.

You then have some lesser-known and in some cases cheaper brands that produce some excellent quality products like Lotto, Mizuno, K-Swiss, Babolat and Yonex. 

All the shoes I have tested are all court versions as I play more often on hardcourts. Most of these models have clay court versions that perform the same. The only real change is the sole that has been adapted to the red stuff with that classic herringbone design rather than the mixed pattern usually seen on hard court shoes.

Tip: You Can Save Money By Picking Up Last Years Flagship Shoes

Most of the big brands are updating their designs on a yearly or bi-yearly basis without really changing the performance of the shoe.

That means the ‘older' model can often be picked up at knockdown prices; for example, the Mizuno Exceed I recommend below is now at iteration 4. But the Exceed 3 is still a fantastic shoe and can be picked up at 40% cheaper than the 4 which is a bit of a no brainer.

From time to time though there are changes in construction. For example, I think the Gel Resolution 8 is a significant improvement on the Gel Resolution 7. It's more flexible, has a roomier toe box and performs better. Would I still buy the 7 if the price was right? Yes, but I do prefer the 8 overall.

In all my selections below I'll highlight which area each shoe performs well in, and anywhere it's not up to scratch. I'll also say whether I think it's significantly better then the model it's replacing.

Asics Court FF 2 – My Top Pick For 2020

Asics Court FF 2

CHECK LATEST PRICE

I reviewed the Asics Court FF 2 at the back end of 2019 and they quickly became my favourite tennis shoe, replacing a pair of Gel Resolution 7's I'd been wearing long term. 

They're the shoe of choice for Novak Djokovic and feature a mono sock design which helps keeps the foot secure and aids how connected you feel to the court.

Not everyone likes the mono sock, but for me, it offered a snug feeling, was easy to get on and gave a nice connected feel to the court despite them sitting higher than some lighter shoes.

The Court FF 2 are my top pick as they're a great all-round shoe. Very comfortable, excellent durability and they required zero break-in time.

Are they significantly better the original Court FF? I'd say slightly, I prefer them overall, but some players will prefer the softer upper on the Court FF 1 shoe and in the sale they're worth picking up.

Pros

  • Very comfortable
  • Offer great support and stability
  • Above-average durability

Cons

  • Some players might prefer a softer / less plastic upper

Asics Gel Resolution 8 – On a Par with the Court FF 2

Asics Gel Resolution 8 Best

CHECK LATEST PRICE

Second on my list and new for 2020 is the latest iteration of the Asics Gel Resolution line: The Gel Resolution 8.

This is Asics's heavier more durable model, and it performs exceptionally well. I reviewed the shoes at the start of the year and found them to be the best Gel Resolution shoes to date.

The overall combination of stability, durability, and comfort are, in my opinion, the best in any shoe on the market.

This particular shoe has been developed alongside Gael Monfils who is one of the most athletic guys on tour and seems to address some of the problems some people had with the Gel Resolution 7 model in terms of comfort and toe box narrowness.

What I like about this model is that comfort is not compromised despite it being very stable and supportive. This does not usually happen with shoes with this level of durability, so it's a top choice for anyone who plays the game.

Is it considerably better than the Gel Resolution 7? I'd say yes, it's more flexible on the upper and toe area, and the toe box width is improved.

I think they're comfier too, but the Gel Resolution 7 hasn't become a lousy shoe overnight so, at a discounted price, you might get a better price: performance ratio.

Pros

  • Very comfortable
  • Offer great support and stability
  • 6-month outsole warranty

Cons

  • Not the most breathable shoe

Adidas adizero Ubersonic 2 – Best Lightweight Shoe

Adidas Adizero Ubersonic 3

CHECK LATEST PRICE

Brought back due to customer demand after Adidas launched the third iteration of their Ubersonic line, the Ubersonic 2's are my favourite lightweight shoe and ideal for players who like a fast, light-footed feeling around the court.

I put these shoes third on my list as overall I value the durability of the Gel Resolution 8's more. However, for a lot of players, they think durable-orientated shoes leave them feeling sluggish around the court, especially on surfaces like clay that aren't so harsh on the soles.

This isn't the case with the Ubersonic 2's as speed and efficiency is excellent. The only drawback for some players will be the sock fit and no tongue, which makes them harder to get for some foot types.

Pros

  • Very lightweight
  • Excellent comfort
  • Good stability even though lightweight in construction

Cons

  • Sock construction makes them harder to get on
  • Some players complain of the laces being too thin (but easy enough to change)

Mizuno Wave Exceed Tour 4 – Lightweight with Decent Durability

Mizuno Wave Exceed

CHECK LATEST PRICE

Mizuno is a brand I associate more with Golf, but they've been making more of an appearance on the ATP Tour of late sponsoring several players with both clothing and footwear.

They are very popular with a lot of the doubles players, and Roberto Bautista Agut is probably their most significant singles player. He wears the Mizuno Wave Exceed Tour 3 AC which is a quality shoe.

My recommendation here is the Exceed Tour 4 as it's more readily available, however, if you can still find the Exceed 3 models in stock, get those instead as they will be much cheaper.

From speaking to a friend who has worn Mizuno tennis shoes for the last 3 years, the Exceed 3 and 4 offers a lot of support and a good amount of traction in a lightweight package. Durability is also above average in their testing. The best description I can give is they're a slightly less beefy version of the Gel Resolution 7 or 8.

Finally, the general consensus with Mizuno is they run slightly large, so a lot of players tend to go half a size down.

Pros

  • Very lightweight
  • Excellent comfort
  • Good stability even though lightweight in construction

Cons

  • Some players complain of heel slippage forcing them to lace ultra-tight
  • They are quite stiff so do require a break-in

Babolat Jet Mach II – A Solid Lightweight Option

Babolat Jet Mach II

CHECK LATEST PRICE

Despite being more famed for their tennis racquets and natural gut strings that are widely used on the ATP and WTA Tours, Babolat also has a range of good quality tennis shoes.

One of my favourites is the Babolat Jet Mach II as they're super light but still offer excellent levels of support thanks to the Kevlar and polyamide in the upper.

For players who like that fleet of foot feeling from light shoe but still want that confidence their foot won't slip when moving out the corners the Mach II is a good choice.

Naturally, they aren't the most durable shoes out there, but they're easily on a par with other speed/performance-orientated shoes and have Michelin rubber in the soles.

Are they far better than the Jet Mach I? This is more a subtle update, so they offer a similar performance to the previous model. Although they do feel a bit wider and less tight to the foot, so if you can find the Mach I at a budget price and they fit, go for them.

Finally, do be aware though that Babolat shoes do tend to run small, and most customers and retailers recommend going half a size up to compensate.

Pros

  • Very lightweight
  • Great support
  • Ideal for players who like a low to the ground feel

Cons

  • Not the most durable
  • Run a bit small, so not good for wide feet. Go a half or a full size up.

Yonex Power Cushion Eclipsion

Yonex Power Cushiion Eclipsion

CHECK LATEST PRICE

The Power Cushion Eclipsion are the shoe of choice for Stan Wawrinka, and they're Yonex's flagship shoe for support, stability, and durability.

One of my hitting partners is long time wearer of Yonex shoes and thinks the Eclipsion live up to the support and stability claims but aren't the most durable.

The shoe itself has a Power Graphite Drive plate which gives a lot of support and stability, but that also gives the shoes a reasonably rigid, narrow fit which means they do need quite a lot of break-in time.

Traction is also impressive on the Eclipsion thanks to the multi-directional herringbone pattern. Still, durability isn't the best and is subpar compared to some of the other shoes in this guide so while I rate the shoe, they do need replacing more often than Asics ones.

Pros

  • Great traction
  • Stiff upper offers good stability
  • One of the best looking shoes out there

Cons

  • Requires quite a lot of break-in
  • Not the most durable

Air Zoom Vapor X – Roger Federer's Shoe Of Choice

Nike Air Zoom Vapor X

CHECK LATEST PRICE

Before I became an Asics convert, the Nike Vapor 9.5 was my tennis shoe of choice for several years. Primarily for the slick-looking design as I think they're one of the best looking shoes on the market.

The reason I switched was I find Asics both more durable and more comfortable personally, but the Vapor X is still a decent shoe that I had to include it in the list.

It's light, comfy, and very breathable. The only place it lets itself down in is durability. Somewhat expected as they're marketed as a speed type of tennis shoe but the sole is slightly longer lasting in the X compared to the now-discontinued 9.5's.

One other change from the 9.5's is the X does seem to play a little slicker (perhaps why they are slightly more durable) and the general feedback I've received from other players is that the traction is not as good as before.

Pros

  • Good levels of comfort
  • Slick designs and colourways
  • Lightweight and breathable

Cons

  • Not the most durable
  • Play quite slick so not ideal for those who want a lot of traction

Babolat Propulse Fury

Babolat Propulse Fury

CHECK LATEST PRICE

Whereas the Babolat Jet Mach II above is more of a speed shoe, the Propulse Line is Babolat's offering for maximum stability, durability and comfort.

Like all Propulse models from previous years, the latest iteration offers excellent durability, and the six-month outsole guarantee is a nice touch.

Now while I do like these shoes which is why they are in the list, I do think they work better for certain types of feet, and they're not the most comfortable, at least for me.

Personally I think they could do with a bit more cushioning in the mid and forefoot (insoles could be a good fix here), but on the support and stability front they perform well, your feet do feel locked in and on the flip side, the lack of cushioning does offer a connected feeling to the court.

Pros

  • Great durability
  • Low to the ground feeling

Cons

  • Not the comfiest shoes
  • Run narrow

Fit Details

Length True
Width Medium (slightly narrow)

KSwiss Ultrashot 2

Kswiss Ultrashot 2

CHECK LATEST PRICE

Like the Asics Gel Resolution 8 shoes and Babolat Propulse Fury, KSwiss also offers a 6-month outsole warranty on their Ultrashot line. 

The Ultrashot shoes are built in a very durable fashion thanks to the DragGuard and the Aosta 7.0 high-density rubber outsole providing a long-lasting shoe.

That makes the shoes quite heavy, but once on they feel a bit lighter than their weight on the scales would suggest. So for players looking for a stable and locked-in feeling, then the Ultrashots 2's are great shoes.

One downside would be the breathability of the shoes, but that's common across most tennis shoes focused on durability, and although the Ortholite X-40 sock liner does an excellent job with moisture they will need to dry off after a few hours playing on a hot day.

Are these a significant improvement over the original Ultrashot? KSwiss has undoubtedly fixed the issue a lot of players discovered with the tongue being small and lacking padding on the originals. They're also lighter. So relatively subtle changes but the Ultrashot 2 is a slightly better all-round package.

Pros

  • Great durability
  • Comfortable with 
  • Low to the ground feeling

Cons

  • Not that breathable
  • Quite weighty

New Balance Lav Fresh Foam

New Balance Lav Fresh Foam

CHECK LATEST PRICE

The shoe of choice for Milos Raonic and named Lav due to the Candian's grandfather giving him that nickname (Serbian for Lion) when he was a kid. 

The Lav is New Balance's premium tennis shoe and is fairly slick looking with a full bootie design and a knit/stitched upper which helps with breathability and flexibility.

The key feature of the Lav is comfort thanks to the fresh foam midsole, which provides a lot of cushioning. Couple that with the bootie construction and you still get low to the ground feel.

Inerestingly the shoes are quite heavy when you drop them on the scales, but once on they don' feel too cumbersome. That's likely due to the foam which gives you a feeling of light footedness.

The sole of the Lav's is a one piece design which would make you think they're not flexible like some of the Asics shoes in the midfoot, but they aren't stiff and offer similar levels of flex. 

Despite the weight, area the shoes disappoint is durability, but like some of the others in this list, New Balance does offer a 6-month outsole warranty which does provide some peace of mind.

Pros

  • Lightweight feel and comfortable
  • Low to the ground feeling
  • No break-in required

Cons

  • Can run narrow for some
  • Subpar durability

What About The Best Tennis Shoes For Women?

Womens Tennis Shoes

This article primarily focuses on men's tennis shoes as those are the models I have tested. However, most of my picks have a women's version which are identical in performance so the picks apply for the ladies too.

However, there are a couple of shoes that perform well for the girls that I haven't included here so a full guide is coming soon 🙂 .

Final Thoughts

Best Mens Tennis Shoe Conclusion

So there are my top tennis shoe picks for 2020, I hope you found it useful regardless of what level of the game you play.

I tried to highlight some of the general quirks or tendencies that brands have in terms of them having two different kinds of models, the heavier, more stable, supportive, and more durable one, as well as the lighter faster, more comfortable, but less durable version.

Something else I hope you picked up is how all of the different brands have common features regardless of what marketing spin they put on it.

If comfort is what you want out of your shoes I would suggest you get any of the Nike shoes especially the Vapors. Asics are also a great option here. Particularly the Court FF 2.

When it comes to durability, stability, and support, then the Babolat Propulse Fury and the Asics Gel Resolution 8 are good options if you want durable shoes that are still comfortable.

For narrow feet, the Gel Resolution 8's are a good choice as the new lacing system allows them to pulled very tight. People that have wider feet would probably feel most comfortable in the Nike Zoom Vapors or some of the KSwiss shoes.

As a final recommendation, I would say if in doubt, get the Asics Gel Resolution 8. I personally prefer the FF 2 but I think the Gel Resolution are the best model on this list and more suited to most players.

There are tons of players on the lower levels of the tour that are not sponsored that choose to wear the Gel Res line despite having a lot of other options so that is a strong vote of confidence.

Finally, the most important takeaway is there is no such thing as a perfect shoe, at some point, you will have to make compromises in one area or another.

You can sometimes get really close to finding the best fit as there are so many options that are available but chances are you'll always be searching for that bit more comfort, stability or cushioning as tennis is hard on the feet.

Go to a store (try to support your local tennis shop if you can), try some on and if you want the best possible price you can always shop online to find the best deal.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the best tennis shoes for wide feet but also have great support?

Generally, KSwiss or Yonex Shoes are well suited for wider feet. I have pretty wide feet and I've had no issue with Asics or Nike Vapors either. Other players I know say Nike Cage are also good for wider feet.

What other shoe brands offer good options that you haven't mentioned?

I've heard quite a lot of good things about Lotto shoes, particularly their Stratosphere model. Also, New Balance and Diadora have some interesting models that are getting good reviews.

I am looking for a shoe that is low to the ground but also has good cushioning, which models have these characteristics?

I'd pick Asics shoes, in general, they will give you plenty of cushioning whilst low to the ground. The Court FF 2 is a good pick. If you prefer other shoes then using an insert is also a great idea to add cushioning to a shoe.

Is speed or stability more important in a tennis shoe?

Most of the time there will be a compromise as light/fast shoes usually will not be as stable as a heavy shoe, but I find that the Asics Gel Resolution 8 has best of both worlds and therefore is the best shoe to use. But if I had to choose one, it would be stability, because I think it is important to feel safe changing direction.

Which tennis shoes are best for weekend club player that are also cheap?

Barricade Team if you can find them or look for shoes on sale, others in the tennis community recommend K-Swiss or Wilson shoes like the Rush Pro 3.0.

Got any Questions?

Huge fan of Roger Federer. I watch all his matches from Grand Slam level right down to ATP 250. When I'm not watching or writing about tennis I play regularly myself and have a keen interest in tactics, equipment and technicalties of the sport.

    1. @Jon, based on your review I will definitely try the Asics Gel Resolution 8 (already have 2 pairs on my Amazon cart). Last year I purchased 7 Vapor X and I love their looks and are really comfy, but spending $1,000 per year on shoes is not good for my bank account 😜

      #GoRoger

  1. I have read a few negatives on the Gel Resolution 8 but like you I think they are much improved shoes over the Asics Gel Resolution 7. They feel very stable on court. My go to shoe.

    1. Cool thanks. Yeah, I am a big fan of the 8’s. Like I wrote in the post I think I prefer the FF 2 overall personally but I’ve been wearing the Gel Res for the last month as they were the only pair I had with me and I like them a lot.

  2. The Court FF 2 are a great shoe, comfort straight out the box. I had to exchange an 11 for a 10 so maybe they run big? But when I put them on to play, I was a huge fan. Comfy and the support is ideal for my foot with a medium arch.

    1. I’m a UK 10 and the FF 2 fit me well. But I do often try to get half a size bigger as my feet are fairly wide but I didn’t need 10.5 in these so maybe you are right…

  3. Asics are the only shoes that work for me. Gel Res 8 is the best tennis shoe I have ever put on. Out of the box comfort and extremely stable base.

    1. Quite a few people say the same thing about Asics been the only trainers they can wear for running/tennis etc.

      I can wear most brands without too much fuss but I do think Asics are the comfiest. Like I put in the post, the fact so many players wear these out of their own pocket is a good advertisement.

  4. I just checked that the Gel Resolution 8 are on sale on the local Decathlon store for 105€.
    Too bad that my shoes are still good! Haha.
    For someone with flat feet as me and prone to feet sprains I guess that the prime attributes would be stability and small ground clearance. Thick soles make me fear side tripping…

    1. Pretty good price considering they are new.

      Trainers and tennis shoes are too expensive in general though tbh, especially when you know such a high % goes on marketing rather than the manufacturing. All over $100 in the main but not much we can do about it 😆

  5. Good post, my go to shoe is always the Gel Res line.

    A couple of friends like the New Balance Lav you mentioned too, but I ike the Gel Resolution 8 for hardcourts which is all we have where I am.
