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 Hypercourt Supreme. It is reported to have a narrow fit. 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 that offers 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. And because of Surgelite, the lightness of these shoes is noticeable too.

Flexible cage system

The DuraWrap Flex grips the top, which adds 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 is fabricated in high-density elements, which withstands the abrasiveness of the court surface.

Built with solid torsional control

This shoe relies on the 180-degree PSC (Plantar Support Chassis) found at the midfoot which bestows 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.
