2018 is here and the first Grand Slam is underway. Besides the tennis racket, footwear could be the most important piece of equipment a tennis play relies on. Today’s players are extremely fast and aggressive and they need a shoe to match their style of play. Designed for the player who is looking for a comfortable shoe that can keep up with quick shuffles, cross court sprints, agile backpedals and swift turns, Wilson Sporting Goods introduces the 2018 KAOS 2.0 Symbiofit Technology (SFT) tennis shoe.
Here is the lowdown on this new Wilson KAOS 2.0 STF tennis shoe:
Weighing in at just 12.1 oz for men’s and 9.8 oz for women’s, the KAOS 2.0 SFT is one of the lightest on the court today.
The upper of the KAOS SFT has been designed like a bootie to wrap an athlete’s foot at the key points of traction and flexing to not only improve comfort, but support a player’s foot during all movements.
Pro Torque Chassis™ Light technology placed on top of midsole for more flexibility. This, combined with state-of-the-art, compressed cushioning and softness materials at the midsole, delivers long-lasting comfort, stability and shock absorbency. In return, a player can gain more control, greater push off and faster reaction times.
SKINGUARD™ technology increases the shoe’s durability while holding the foot in place.
For women, the shoe features an asymmetrical heel counter for better support.
The KAOS 2.0 SFT is available in men’s sizes 7-12.5, 13 and 14 and comes in eye-catching White/Safety Yellow/Ebony or Mazarine Blue/White/Neon Red. For women, the shoe is available in vibrant Very Berry/Evening Blue/Sunny Lime in sizes 5.5-9.5, 10 and 11.
The KAOS SFT will be available at tennis specialty retailers globally and on www.wilson.com beginning January 15, 2018. The KAOS SFT retails for $139.00 (USD).
If you remember my review of the Wilson KAOS first generation tennis shoe, you’ll know that this tennis shoe is a solid offering for all types of tennis players!
