Abrasion-resistant and environment friendly

Nike strengthened this section by using GDR (green durable rubber) outsole that resists abrasion. Although this isn’t the top-of-the-line footgear, the outsole is assembled to keep up with the demands of the hardcourt. A fun fact about its rubber material is that it’s environment-friendly. It is stated that fewer chemical emissions occurred during the production of this element.

Excellent traction and toe protection

 It features a modified, non-marking outsole design, which shows five distinctive patterns. These tread designs provide different traction levels that offer stable footing when practicing the basic tennis stances. The underfoot rubber runs up the tip of the shoe as an added support feature against toe dragging.

Shock-absorbing cushioning

For shock absorption, the Court Lite 2 uses lightweight Phylon that’s made out of EVA foam pellets. These tiny particles are compressed, heated, and formed using a mold. It’s neither too soft nor stiff but cushions the foot during landings, toe-offs, and lateral movements. It’s also assembled with a raised heel for improved rear end cushioning.

Excellent arch support

This entry-level footwear is built with a beefed-up shank under the arch of the foot. Such a platform offers more excellent court coverage while granting stability. Specifically, this midfoot shank prevents the foot from rotating during impulsive slides and sudden shifts of direction. It comes with a slightly low arch that works well with neutral and flat-footed users requiring mild to moderate support.

Durable covering

Synthetic leather and mesh serve as a durable covering for the foot. The double stitches are intended to keep the upper intact even during long training sessions.
