This update introduces a re-engineered upper that cuts weight, and replaces traditional laces with a quicklace system. The shoes are very light, responsive, and comfortable. If you prefer a traditional fit, try Wilson’s new Kaos 3.0.

The Hypercourt family has expanded to include a higher-performance model in the Supreme. This shoe features a slightly slimmer fit than the Hypercourt Express, and an inner bootie construction that promises a more dynamic, all-around experience.
