Who should NOT buy it

If you are narrow-footed and prefer a kick that isn't too spacious around the toes, try the K-Swiss Aero Knit. It's made of knitted fabric instead of the typical mesh and leather seen in most K-Swiss shoes. Or you might want to go towards a more modern-looking one like the mesh-covered Ultrashot 3.

Lightweight cushioning

It features the Surgelite midsole unit for impact protection. As its name implies, such a proprietary cushioning system is lightweight, encouraging you to move swiftly in multiple directions. Aside from reducing weight from the bottom section, Surgelite is shock-absorbing, too, so you're getting a lot from this cushioning unit. You'll also find this feature used in all-court tennis shoes like the Aero Court and Ultrashot 2. And because of Surgelite, you'll notice the lightness of these shoes too.

Flexible cage system

The DuraWrap Flex grips the top for added support. This element prevents any point in the forefoot section from bursting due to excessive toe dragging. It also serves as an added protection barrier for the feet.

Abrasion-resistant outsole

The bottom layer employs the Aosta 7.0, K-Swiss's upgraded in-house outsole technology. Such rubber that's also found in other advanced profiles like the Aero Knit and Bigshot Light 3 is fabricated in high-density elements to withstand the abrasiveness of the court surface.

Multi-surface ready tread

Its non-marking rubber compound is designed with a revised herringbone tread that’s advantageous on clay and hard courts.

Built with solid torsional control

This shoe relies on the 180-degree PSC (Plantar Support Chassis) found at the midfoot for stability. It mainly hinders the foot from rotating inwards, so it remains flat on the ground even as you burst from one point to another.
