Probably the best tennis shoe I've ever worn. Very comfortable and lasts. I play twice a week for 2 hours each, and these shoes have held up for me for almost a year! I have had plantar fascia so I use my own sole inserts.

I like them enough that I've purchased two pair. There are lighter shoes available but these look great, fit great and last.

After searching for the best running shoe, I purchased a pair of Asics a few years ago for a 5K race in my home town. They were so comfortable that after the race I started wearing them every day! For tennis I had always purchased the usual NB and Nike but they never quite did the job for my fussy feet. That's when I discovered Asics also makes a tennis shoe and so I ordered the Gel-Challengers. At first they seemed a little loose and I felt my heel coming up in the back UNTIL I laced up the very top holes of the shoes and VOILA! Perfect! I didn't realize at the time but the top hole brings everything together. They are a great fit and comfortable on the court. I'm playing better than ever. Thanks Zappos!

This is my favorite pair of tennis shoes I have ever had. I am a tennis instructor and spend hours at a time on the court. These shoes provide outstanding cushioning. This is the first pair of Asics I bought to use for on court tennis and I will be buying more. Also, Zappos customer service was outstanding.

I wore these while playing on my high school tennis team. Excellent traction on the court, good stability, very comfortable. No blisters wearing them right out of the box.
