AT A GLANCE - NIKE AIR ZOOM VAPOR Pro

Pros
  • Popular shoe among top players – both men and women
  • Delivers outstanding performance
  • Lightweight, comfortable and provides a good fit
  • Good ventilation
Cons
  • Not durable (especially if you are hard on your shoes)
  • Traction is okay but could be better

Though she multiple grand slam titles under her belt, she has had difficulties getting big-name sponsors. Sponsors have been reluctant to spend money on an athlete from a small country such as Romania, which only has around 20 million people.  

Simona Halep’s shoe, the Nike Air Zoom Vapor Pro is very popular on the men’s and women’s tours. Even Roger Federer wore this shoe’s predecessor, the Vapor X, without a contract with Nike.  Federer considered moving to other shoe brands but remained with Nike Air Zoom Vapor X because there are very few shoes that are as good in the footwear market.

The Nike Air Zoom Vapor Pro shoes are lightweight and include a sock liner.  This gives your feet a snug fit when you put them on.  The shoes have padded collars that provide exceptional comfort. 

These shoes have a unique design on the perimeter of the outsole to improve traction on the court. This allows you to make quick cuts on the court and improves your movement on the court. 

The shoes are durable enough considering their lightweight and will tolerate the wear and tear well for normal use. The shoes come in multiple colors and will make you look fashionable on the court.

Bottom Line

Nike Air Zoom Vapor Pro shoes are one of the most popular tennis shoes on the market and for good reason.  The shoes are lightweight and provide good traction on the court.  The shoes are also extremely comfortable to wear.
