Top best answers to the question «What makes a tennis shoe a court shoe»

A hard court surface like concrete requires shoes with more durability, while a soft court surface will need shoes with more traction on the sole. Tennis shoes for hard courts are designed with more durability in mind, offering a more resilient, outsole and more supportive upper.

Most often hard court tennis shoes feature a modified herringbone pattern to give you the perfect blend of grip and give on the court. Hard court shoes will often feature ample cushioning and a midsole that will help transfer energy into every step you take as well as absorb shock from the harder surface.
