Wilson is a well-known name in the Tennis world, and they make plenty of equipment for other sports like golf and basketball. We’re not sure how long they’ve been in the footwear game, but the Rush Pro 2.5 tennis shoes are well worth a look and pretty darned stylish to boot.

We’re going to start with the design this time around as Wilson has surprised us with the 2.5. It’s a good looking shoe with a clean design reminiscent of something that would roll off the line at New Balance. There are a variety of colors to choose from as well from wilder colorful hues to more subtle shades like greys and blacks.

This shoe is in the middle of the pack with weight even though it’s mainly made of mesh, not leather. A size 9 weighs around 13 ounces although it’s far from what we would consider heavy. The weight is partly due to the construction and a thick Duralast rubber outsole. The tread pattern makes it suitable for all types of courts including clay and grass.

Wilson changed a few things up from the Rush 2.0 as the new model has better reinforcement around the toe. It’s also reinforced by the company’s 3D-F.S. technology which adds forefoot support which increases responsiveness for when you need to stop and start suddenly on the court.

Like a snug fit?

If so, you’ll be thrilled to know they went with the “bootie” route with their ENDOFIT system. It’s a full inner sock that keeps your feet in place while allowing them to breathe and pairs nicely with the padded tongue and collar. Other features to note include a cushy R-dst+ midsole and a Pro Torque chassis for improved torsion control.

As you’d expect, there are no narrow or wide options available with this particular shoe. It runs from a 7 to a size 14, and there are 12 different colors to choose from depending on the size you need. It also has a 6-month warranty out of the box, something you won’t find on tennis shoes from other brands.
