Thoughts on wearing these as a court shoe? (Ex: Racquetball)
These remind me of the Kobe 4. Did A quick search to see if head farms out manufacturing to Nike but it doesn’t appear so. Weird… They have such similar builds!
I think for the price this would be great for a court shoe. The only thing I can see is that it doesn’t say anywhere that these are gum-sole rubber. Traction will still be much better than a running or training shoe however. At this price it is definitely worth picking up.
Head makes tennis gear and apparel. These are tennis shoes. They are made for tennis.
Head also makes racquetball racquets. Since my running shoes propel me forward and thus make for poor lateral control, (and risk my ankles if I try) and these are designed for movements of tennis, it would seem reasonable to wonder if these shoes could be versatile enough to help on any court.
I bought the previous version of Head sneakers in the black color and same price. But the Fit of the shoe was very tight. Does anyone know if these shoes run narrow?
Surely a shoe that looks this great will sell out.
You guys are seriously debating the merits of a shoe base on what “type” of court?!
I can’t wait until Woot sells tires and the debate begins over concrete vs pavement.
Thanks for the reply. According to a few sites I checked, the soles are made of “hybrasion rubber”. I agree that gum sole is the preferred option but Head does put this type of sole on a few of its racquetball shoes.
FYI, another solid view of the shoe can be found here
Head shoes have a very tight toe box and run narrow. By the tread, it looks like these are clay court or indoor court shoes. Good shoes, especially at this price, but not for everyone.
Head makes a fine shoe, great period but really grabs the court.
That being said, damn this is one terribly ugly shoe!
