The 10 Best Tennis Shoes in India 2023 (Compared)

This article is all about the best tennis shoes available in India. Why do you need tennis shoes? This is because running shoes are designed with more weightage towards forward movement and have extra cushioning for ankle support. But for tennis shoes, the importance of lateral stability comes first. For this tennis shoes have relatively thinner soles for a close-to-court feel.

A tennis shoe is designed for quick court coverage, sliding, twisting, and jumping. So you need a responsive shoe to cover the court in the quickest possible time (Tennis court is bigger than courts of other racket sports like badminton, pickleball, or squash), lateral stability to prevent rolling on the court, shock-resistant good cushioning to prevent injuries to your ankles or knees.

In a broader sense, tennis shoes possess the following characteristics.

  • Stability
  • Responsiveness
  • Durability
  • Comfort
  • Support

Again, the selection of the right tennis shoe depends on the following factors

  • The types of courts you are playing
  • Your playing style
  • Your personal preference
  • The anatomy of your foot
  • Your budget

So there are several factors that you have to consider before buying a quality tennis shoe. Nike, Adidas, Asics, Wilson, Head, Babolat, and Yonex are the most reputed manufacturers of tennis shoes. Among them, Asics comes as a front leader as a tennis shoe brand covering all the aspects in the most efficient manner. That’s why my review for the 10 best tennis shoes in India is heavily biased toward Asics.
