Profile of the K-Swiss Ultrashot 2

K-Swiss Ultrashot 2 takes on the winning formula of the original Ultrashot in a more streamlined, lighter, and comfier package. This second-generation Ultrashot is ideal for competitive players who perform hard and passionately on clay and hard courts. 

Cushioning isn’t taken out of the picture and remains to be one of the best-selling points of this Ultrashot. The innovative Surgelite engineering dominates the midsole to modulate repeated impact before these get absorbed by the foot. The lightness of the material is designed to propel the wearer to zoom and glide around the court courageously. It’s jammed with improvements and backed by a durability outsole guarantee.

Outsole

Rubber components. Built with a high-density Aosta 7.0 rubber outsole, this shoe is equipped to resist abrasion. The molded rubber’s hard-wearing attribute makes it suitable for use on any court surface.

For added durability, the lower sections of the tip of the shoe, medial and lateral sides are wrapped with DragGuard rubber. Such proponent works as an enhanced shield that puts more life to the shoe even through repeated toe dragging and sliding. 

Durability guarantee. As an assurance that this shoe will last for a protracted time, it is tagged with an outsole durability guarantee. The warranty lasts for six months from the time of purchase. 

Midsole

The Surgelite technology is incorporated into the EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) midsole composition for responsiveness. Such a dynamic proponent is created to make the shoe maneuverable, light, and long-lasting. The tech is responsible for minimizing shock during landings, offering comfort to the user.

Upper

Material. The DuraWrap X, a polyurethane material, is the crowning spec that’s integrated into the mesh upper. The combination of synthetic and mesh is meant to deliver lateral support and ventilation. Ultrashot 2’s seam-free construction makes its aesthetic clean-looking and straight-forward. 

Fit. It maintains the same kind of in-shoe feel and fit as the previous model. Although it’s made with a shorter tongue than the first Ultrashot, this second version grants comfort still. Like most K-Swiss shoes, this one is also assembled with a roomy toe box, which makes the forefoot feeling partly wide especially for narrow-footed wearers. 

Comfort. K-Swiss added the Ortholite X-40 inner sole, which is intended to draw off moisture and keep the underfoot ventilated.
