Wilson tennis shoes

Wilson, based in Chicago, IL and one of the world’s largest sporting goods companies has been in business for nearly a century. Wilson’s core sports are Racquet Sports, Team Sports, and Golf. Racquet Sports includes Tennis, which leads to the discussion of Wilson Tennis Shoes.

Wilson manufactures 5 lines of shoes, with men’s and women’s versions of each. Plus there are 3 models of junior tennis shoes. The current model names are Tour Vision, Tour Spin II, Tour Fantom, Pro Staff Trigor/Victress, and Pro Staff Court.

Wilson tennis shoes feature several technologies. These include an arch bridge, “Ortholite” comfort foam sockliner, abrasion-resistant toe guards, “nano-wik” moisture management, and DST Foam insole boards. Plus some models offer a 6-month outsole durability guarantee.

Wilson tennis shoes typically are a bit less expensive than their competitors. I’ve always noted very good deals on them and presumed that their large manufacturing capability helped reduce costs. I’ve never noticed any obvious cost-cutting measures.

My daughter, who in a varsity tennis player in High School, uses Wilson tennis shoes. She has been very pleased with their comfort and performance. She reports that they look good, feel good, and are lightweight. A great product from an American icon—how can you go wrong?
