Who should buy the NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor X

The explosive features of the NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor X start from its well-ventilated upper. Such an open mesh front is airier than the fabric used in the NikeCourt Air Zoom Prestige. It is a solid option if you: 

  • Need a shoe that is made of premium quality and a softer feel than the Air Zoom Prestige. 
  • Need a shoe that has an added support for ultimate control during directional moves, even if it’s built with a flexible upper.
  • Need a shoe that has an innovative outsole that offers the right blend of give and grip.

Durable and lightweight

One noticeable difference between the updated Air Zoom Vapor 10 and the earlier profiles of the Nike Zoom tennis trainers is the design of the outsole. Although most of them are structured using the innovative XDR (extra-durable rubber) compound, the Vapor 10 has a thicker tread pattern along the perimeter of the shoe or in areas that are prone to immediate wear.

A substantial amount of rubber is hollowed out from the low-wear areas of the sole. And these carved out sections make this version a bit lighter than an earlier variation such as the NikeCourt Air Zoom Prestige.

Provide snappy responsiveness

This trainer relies on the pressurized air unit incorporated in the heel called Zoom Air to provide snappy responsiveness. Inside the air chamber are compactly stretched tensile filaments. These fibers compress every time the foot lands on the ground before they spring back to their normal state. Such a quick response generates an explosive ride and improved maneuverability.

Its full-length TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) foot frame covers the edges of the shoe for added security on every slide and speedy turn. Under the arch of the foot is a TPU platform that inhibits sudden foot rotation.

Ingenious dynamic fit

Stability is one of the dominant characteristics of the NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor 10. If most tennis shoes in the market rely on midfoot shanks for lateral support, the Air Zoom Vapor 10 is built with an added source of control and balance. This system is called the ingenious Dynamic Fit, which clasps the foot from the base of the arch all the way up to the laces for a form-hugging fit.

Extra Protection

An added layer of rubber is placed on the toe and medial side to make the trainer long-lasting. It also serves as added protection against unavoidable toe dragging. NikeCourt Air Zoom Vapor X Extra Protection

Despite having an extra layer of protection on the upper, this profile remains to be one of the most lightweight tennis shoes available.

Excellent arch support

The ankle gets support from the adequate padding wrapped around the collar.
