With the Stycon, adidas pushes the boundaries of what players have come to expect from premier tennis shoes. Even at a glance, these shoes are futuristic. Underneath their boot-like appearance is a laceless design, a first for tennis. Our playtest team was immediately curious to find out if laceless shoes could truly provide enough security for the rigors of tennis movement. According to adidas, the Stycons are built for a low-profile ride and a stable feel, while BOUNCE cushioning in the midsole is intended to soften court impacts. Although they might look intimidating, these Stycons were relatively easy for our testers to slip on. Once they got onto the court, the team found lots of support, stability and durability. Unfortunately, that impressive support and stability come with noticeable weight and some comfort issues, especially during break-in. Aggressive players who love cutting-edge design and who prize stability over all else should take a look at the eye-catching adidas Stycons.
A spin on tennis tradition. Serving up a radical look, these laceless adidas Stycon Shoes keep you firmly locked in so you can play your all-action game. Responsive cushioning keeps you on your toes while the snug rim adds stability to landings. A herringbone pattern on the rubber outsole keeps you fighting for every point.
