Lorenzo Sonego Shoe Review
The new iteration of the famous Mizuno Wave Exceed Tour has split reactions and the players either love these shoes so much or dislike them entirely.
For this price range, there are lots of other choices to consider such as Asics or Nike shoes, known for superb quality combined with comfort and foot support.
If you consider buying a pair of Mizuno’s new tennis shoes, here are the main pros and cons.
- Superb durability and resistance to abrasion
- Comfortable and very breathable
- Roomy toe box
- Flexible upper with thick laces
- Very lightweight (11.7oz) but grippy and stable
- Poor Ankle Support
- Thin and short tongue, which I personally dislike
- Runs big so be careful with the size you choose
- Not ideal for heavy players
