Who should buy the K-Swiss Ultrashot

The technical design of the K-Swiss Ultrashot was greatly influenced by the forceful playing style of competitive, young tennis athletes. It is a solid option if you:

  • Desire for a shoe that is geared up with long-lasting and stable features.
  • Prefer a shock-absorbing trainer that will help you spring at different angles of the court with explosive agility.
  • Need a shoe that offers breathability while keeping the foot cool and fresh.

Stable and robust

Devised with a stable and robust Aosta 7.0 outsole, the K-Swiss Ultrashot is so ready for explosive court games. This high-density rubber compound displays a deep herringbone tread on the lateral side which aids in traction. The medial side exhibits grooves with less depth, tackling the abrasiveness of clay and concrete court setups.

DragGuard rubber technology

Resistance is enhanced with the use of the DragGuard rubber technology that’s strategically located in areas prone to immediate wear. 

K-Swiss Ultrashot Stable and robust

This is one of the tennis shoes with a 6-month outsole durability warranty. It means that if the outsole sustains reasonable damage, the user is eligible for a one-time replacement.

Stable and shock-absorbing Ultrashot

The full-length midsole consists of the GuideGlide, a dual-density foam that cushions the foot from impact over a long period. It also keeps the foot balanced during heel-to-toe strides.

This shock-absorbing unit is a mixture of a soft EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) that cushions the foot against impact. The firmer one around the edges of the shoe adds stability.

Flexible insole

Inside the shoe is the Ortholite X40 sockliner. The numerical value is equivalent to the elasticity percentage of the shoe, and the 40 rating means a high rebound. Mainly formulated with open-cell foam, the Ortholite is flexible.

Supportive, protective, comfortable, and stable upper

Covering this shoe is a state-of-the-art Durawrap X, a polyurethane material that offers lateral support, comfort, and stability. As its name suggests, it serves as an external wrapping that protects the foot as the user propels aggressively on the court. It also serves as an extra layer of defense against inevitable toe-dragging.
