Gear Review

If you are looking for shoes that are lightweight, comfortable and look great both on and off the court, then look no further than the Defiant Bounce! Right out of the box our team loved the soft, breathable feel of the "bootee" construction. On court the shoes felt fast and provided a wide, stable base while flexing naturally with each step. The Defiant Bounces worked exceptionally well when one of our playtesters tried them on a clay court, but some of our hard court testers would have liked a bit more lateral stability. Durability was about average, which makes these shoes less than ideal for the serious junior or players who are exceptionally hard on their shoes. If you play mostly on clay, though, or may not require maximum support and durability, the Defiant Bounces are great looking lightweight shoes that perform great!
