A few weeks ago, I got an email from Wilson Tennis’s PR agency asking if I was going to be doing an article reviewing tennis shoes any time soon. Wilson was releasing a new version of its KAOS shoe and they wanted to send me a pair to try. Who’s going to turn down that offer, right?
Beyond the beautiful pale coral color, though, these shoes are super comfortable and light-weight – 2 factors that make or break a tennis shoe for me. I have a pretty narrow foot and finding shoes that fit properly is a big challenge.
The new KAOS 3.0 have enough laces spaced so that I can adjust the tightness across my toe box, mid sole, and heel, keeping the shoes in place as I move around on a hardcourt. Wilson Tennis explains some of the improvements in Version 3.0: KAOS 3.0 has improved arch technology made to increase comfort, new mesh vents throughout the shoe for extra breathability, and are created to increase speed and better support lateral on-court movements. Mission accomplished, KAOS!
