Profile of the K-Swiss Hypercourt Express

The K-Swiss Hypercourt Express is a leveled-up version of the highly-acclaimed Ultra Express and a descendant of the Ultrashot or the modern version of the 1960s K-Swiss tennis trainer. The Hypercourt Express is designed with a more supportive, breathable, and stylish upper than its predecessors. 

Veering away from the traditional white-toned tennis shoes, this footgear is offered in an attractive selection of colorways using state-of-the-art tech mesh and a synthetic exterior.

Its midsole is virtually unchanged that’s designed to deliver plush cushioning and a comfortable bounce-back gel-like feel. 

Targeted to provide flexible comfort when propelling in multi directions, this modified cut has a high-density outsole that’s suitable on clay and hard court surfaces.  

For added durability and stabilizing support against excessive toe-dragging, this shoe is made with the DuraWrap technology.

Excellent surface traction

The high-wearing Aosta rubber compound offers the needed hold and grip that’s intended to work on any court setup. It’s constructed with a non-marking tread pattern that’s supposed to keep the court surface scuff-free.

Prevents unwanted slips

The full-length herringbone layout is projected to prevent unwanted slips. Such a tread pattern lets the foot slide without difficulty.

The pivot point located under the ball of the foot is created to help the wearer to twist and spin with ease.

Lightweight cushioning

Taking up the entire midsole expanse is the customary EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) foam that’s responsible for reducing impact and foot discomforts. As opposed to rubber, this material comes lighter which eliminates the chances of weighing the foot down.

Shock-absorbing cushioning

Complementing the EVA sponge, which is the primary source of shock absorption, is the Ortholite X40 sock liner. This insole is crafted to offer high rebound. It is rated with a 40 percent elasticity rating which makes it more responsive than the usual kind. With its open-cell formulation, this removable foam has the capacity to wick moisture. Thus, it surrounds the foot with an airy and dry environment.

Prevents the foot from rotating abruptly

In terms of support, this athletic footgear is secured with a 180 PSC (Plantar Support Chassis). Such a support unit is made of a TPU chassis that prevents the foot from rotating abruptly. This system provides the user with the security needed during intense training sessions and matches.

Excellent ventilation

The Hypercourt Express uses the SeamFree tech, an advanced heat-welded process wherein layers of TPU are bonded onto the ventilated mesh. A significant percentage of the overlay is wrapped around the midfoot to work as a cage for protection and lockdown comfort.

Durable and flexible

Adding an extra layer of defense against foot-dragging is the DuraWrap. This is an extremely durable and flexible polyurethane material strategically placed in high-wear zones on the upper. Matching this is the DragGuard that works as a reinforcement on the toe area. A slip-resistant textile is lined along the collar to give the ankle and heel a comfortable fit.

Firmly lodged around the rear part of the collar is the Heel Grip Lining. As its name implies, this feature hugs the heel tightly inside the shoe for enhanced fit and stability. The stay-tied laces technology is a unique shoestring setup that gives this shoe a customized fit.
