YONEX’s footwear has received French tennis magazine tennisaddict’s Gold Medal for three years in a row. Tennisaddict has tested 13 new models in 11 categories such as ‘comfort’ and ‘durability’ across 30 testers. YONEX’s SHT-308EX scored at the top in ‘Performance’ and ‘Energy recovery’, receiving the average top score across all categories. (16.2 points of 20)
Testers that reviewed the SHT-308EX said, “comfort and technology matches perfectly during play” and “it supports ankle well and outsole has more durability.” The article also said, “The Power Cushion system is an amazingly efficient: about 40% absorbed shocks (measured in laboratory) and the Japanese brand test proves that the egg doesn’t break! Ideal for heavier frame and those who have sensitive joints or back”.
SHT-DURABLE got a good result at front to toe of the shoe, and was selected as one of the magazine’s favourite shoes of2013.
However, this year wasn’t just about footwear—YONEX racquets were also praised. The VCORE Xi 98, used by Juan Monaco, got the Silver Medal among 16 racquets. Stan’s VCORE Tour 97 was chosen as one of the magazine’s favourite racquets.
