Excellent traction

Taking up the entire expanse is a noteworthy type of rubber that holds up well on varying court conditions. Like most of the all-court tennis trainers by ASICS, this profile is made with a modified herringbone tread pattern, providing improved traction, be it on clay or hardcourt.

Lightweight structure

Despite its lightweight structure, this cushioned tennis trainer doesn’t fall short in offering lateral stability. Connecting the forefoot and rearfoot is a midfoot chassis called Trusstic System.

It inhibits foot rotation even at top speed. This piece of technology keeps the foot planted on the ground during sudden stops. It doesn’t only grant support but protection against foot distress. 

Comfortable cushioning

The leading attributes that allow this shoe to deliver comfort even during long rallies are the Gel tech and EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) foam. The decades-old Gel innovation by ASICS is present in the forefoot and rearfoot. These soft silicone-produced cushioning devices receive and soften the blows every time the foot lands on the ground.

EVA-composed foam and sockliner

Complementing this spec is the EVA-composed foam and sockliner. These materials transport added underfoot support and impact protection. The sockliner molds to the contours of the foot. It is interchangeable to accommodate custom orthotics.

Breathable upper

The enhanced aesthetic of the ASICS Gel Dedicate 6.0 is due to the combination of textile, mesh, and synthetics. The mesh detailing is affixed on the outer membrane, allowing the shoe to breathe throughout the heated drills and matches. The synthetic overlay imparts stability. A fabric lining is added for step-in comfort.
