Both durable and comfortable, the GEL-GAME™ 8 tennis shoe is versatile for the recreational athlete who’s playing several times per week. Preserving its excellent support properties, our focus this season was to improve the shoe's ventilation and flexibility. Featuring an open mesh design on the upper to improve airflow and keep feet cool, this shoe is complemented with synthetic leather overlays and a PU (polyurethane) film that offers improved stability when making abrupt transitions. The TRUSSTIC™ technology in the midsole generates better stability on the court. At the same time, the new tooling combines an EVA midsole foam with GEL™ technology cushioning in the forefoot to increase shock absorption.Additionally, the improved outsole offers better flexibility and a more durable design for omni court and clay surfaces. The GEL-GAME™ 8 tennis shoe is an excellent choice for beginner to mid-level players seeking a cushioned and stable tennis shoe.
