Who should buy the K-Swiss Aero Knit
K-Swiss Aero Knit is an attempt by the brand to create an out-of-the-box tennis trainer that isn’t short of performance benefits. It is a solid option if you:
- Need a shoe that is made with an aerodynamic upper with concealed laces that help boost its aesthetic appeal.
- Need a shoe that is integrated the Surge technology to enhance cushioning and energy return and help level up one’s game.
- Prefer the lightest shoe from K-Swiss’ arsenal of all-court shoes that is assembled to address the comfort and traction requirements of competitive and mid-level players.
High-density proprietary rubber outsole
he entire base of the shoe is constructed with a non-marking Aosta 7.0. Such high-density proprietary rubber outsole is engineered to grant heel-to-toe strength.
Aero Knit may not fall under the umbrella of trainers with an outsole durability warranty, but it comes with a wear-resistant DragGuard property fused into the high-wear zones. This spec prevents the treads from wearing out quickly.
The traditional herringbone tread design
The traditional herringbone tread design is modified to keep up with the traction requirements of different court compositions. Its grip level isn’t too tacky that would hamper court movements.
Delivers the right level of responsiveness
K-Swiss incorporated the Surge+ midsole technology with shock spring to deliver the right level of responsiveness. This is necessary when the user readies up for the next step and darts towards shot after shot.
Surgelite cushioning proponent
Complementing the Surge+ feature is the Surgelite cushioning proponent. As its name hints, this element is lightweight. It’s crafted to absorb impact and disperse it before the foot makes its next landing.
Infi-Knit advanced weaving process
K-Swiss utilized its patented Infi-Knit advanced weaving process in creating a lightweight outer membrane for the Aero Knit. This one-of-a-kind design is made of an assembly of fabric, mesh, and hidden laces.
A bit of a downside of having this tightly knitted upper is the reduced amount of air that’s able to circulate inside the shoe. Nonetheless, it’s soft quality offers comfort.
The foldable tab on the upper not only conceals the laces but protects them from getting ripped during repeated sliding.
