Nike Tennis continuously focuses on delivering lighter, faster and better products for tennis athletes because, as any tennis fan knows; “you can’t hit what you can’t reach.” To help athletes keep up with the speed of the modern game, Nike Tennis designers focus on creating shoes that delivers explosive speed while providing protective support.

The typical tennis shoe weighs around 16 ounces. The Nike Lunar Ballistec in a men’s size 10 weighs just 13 ounces with the introduction of Nike Lunarlon, a proprietary Nike technology that provides extra cushioning while keeping the shoe lightweight and responsive. That weight reduction translates into pure speed to the ball for tennis athletes.

The new Nike Lunar Ballistec for men and women launches globally on and at select retailers worldwide beginning Jan. 2, 2014.
