Sports shoes were once reserved for the active only, but ever since they started appearing on the catwalk, we've all gone crazy for a bit of mix and match trainer style. That said, women's tennis shoes are a must-have if you enjoy a spot of tennis, and they can vary in design depending on the surface you play on.
Women's tennis shoes for the court
If you're a tennis playing pro, you'll be looking for a pair of women's tennis shoes that'll support you as you dart around the court. Playing styles vary depending on the court, and so should your footwear. Grass courts call for good grip, a flat sole and flexible hold, while hard courts require a tough sole, cushioning to support the legs and a rigid stable upper. Clay courts demand extra grip, tight support and a durable design that will cope with all those expert slides and side to side movement.
Women's tennis shoes for style
If you're more interested in the fashion game, take some inspiration from the trend setters, and work a pair of women's tennis shoes into your everyday wardrobe. Low top styles will lengthen your legs when worn with culottes and a camisole in the summer, but they'll also work with boyfriend jeans in cooler weather. Ankle socks will add some preppy chic to your trainer style, wear them with a pair of dungarees for a normcore high fashion look. Trainers and dresses are no longer the fashion faux pas of the commuter, but quite the streetwear favourite. Dress the trend like a pro and match your women's tennis shoes with a patterned dress; pick out some colour in the design, choose your shoe shade accordingly and you'll get it just right.
