Wilson Kaos 3.0 Updates

Built-to-last rubber

Duralast is the property administered at the bottom section of the shoe. This rubber proponent found in most Wilson tennis shoes is made up of a high-density compound that can withstand pressure, wear, and damage caused by recurrent friction between the shoe and the ground surface.

Wilson Kaos 3.0 Outsole

Herringbone tread pattern

Such a non-marking outsole that's common to Wilson Kaos shoes is designed with a herringbone tread pattern from heel to toe. The curved lugs are strategically placed on the sole to grant a good amount of give and grab that's suitable for playing on any court surface.

R-DST+ cushioning technology

It offers a soft layer of protection underfoot with the presence of the R-DST+ cushioning technology. This Wilson-developed feature that's composed of ethylene vinyl acetate works to buffer the foot as it hits the ground. This element is also ready to deliver energy return that permits the user to drive smoothly towards the ball. 

Wilson Kaos 3.0 Midsole

Excellent arch support

The Pro Torque Chassis (PTC) Light, which is infixed below the midfoot arch, works to provide torsional control. This underfoot bridge is meant to keep the heel planted on the ground firmly even during compromising shots while allowing the forefoot the needed mobility. PTC Light has the same stability and flexibility attributes as the standard Pro Torque Chassis, except that the former is oriented for speed with its ultra-lightweight makeup.

Wilson Kaos 3.0 Midsole 2.1

Wilson designs its shoes with varying degrees of heel drop. The added fraction of height to the heel is meant to cushion the impact during foot strike. Wilson Kaos 3.0 is marked under DF2 (Dynamic Fit), which means it comes with an approximately 9mm heel offset. Such an extra layer of padding grants comfortable movements, low-to-the-ground feel, and support during fast movements.

Promotes breathability

The patented Skinguard synthetic sheet is overlaid across the mesh upper. This element puts another layer of protection to the forefoot to extend the shoe's life span. It's also created to clasp the forefoot, deliver lateral reinforcement, and administer support during push-offs. The Skinguard is designed with narrow windows to promote breathability. 

Wilson Kaos 3.0 Upper

Enhanced comfort and a lockdown fit

For enhanced comfort and a lockdown fit, the shoe is designed with the Endofit technology. The wearer can expect natural fit as this full inner sock construction embraces the foot to provide stability during multidirectional trajectories. A removable Orthlolite insole offers added comfort. The ghillie lacing system is retractable to promote a more individualized fit.
