6 reasons to buy

  • To many, the K-Swiss Hypercourt Express Leather is as comfy as the synthetic-mesh counterpart.
  • Its lightness appeals to multiple reviewers.
  • Plenty of K-Swiss fans laud its genuine leather top as it becomes much flexible by frequent use.
  • Its stability delights some wearers, giving them the confidence to play on different surfaces.
  • According to a considerable sum of users, the non-marking outsole grabs the court fairly well.
  • This all-court tennis shoe doesn’t take up a lot of break-in time, several buyers claim.

2 reasons not to buy

  • Some say the outsole of the Hypercourt Express LTR doesn’t last too long on the hard court. 
  • A couple of K-Swiss fans vent that this shoe is somewhat inferior to the Ultrascendor, support-wise. 

Bottom line

K-Swiss continues to delight players who are drawn to classic-styled, multi-court tennis shoes with the release of the Hypercourt Express Leather. This stability court trainer shares the same kind of in-shoe comfort, fit, and traction as the synthetic Hypercourt edition. Plus, it allows you to stay connected to your movement with its low-to-the-ground structure and grippy Aosta 7.0 rubber outsole. Its genuine leather cover is deceivingly clunky and pricey, but it’s surprisingly light both in weight and in the wallet.
