The new Fila Sentinel caught my eye months ago when I spotted Janko Tipsarevic wear testing a pair in Indian Wells. Here are 4 versions from the now public line - including the black and green pair Janko was wearing in Cali.
My POV: Although the tropical brights are what first caught this sneaker loving eye pre launch, I recently had the opportunity to check these newbies out myself. Comfort has a way of adding big to the happiness quotient; sleek, no distract fit here and they performed nicely on clay - important to me.
The pro POV: "...the shoe is lightweight so we can be quick on our feet yet stable" said Tipsarevic. The Sentinel feels low to the ground without sacrificing comfort and cushioning. The traction is excellent and the shoe is very durable for the hours that I put in on the tennis court...”
Add that the shoe is well ventilated, something much needed come this time of year. Note: I found that it ran a little large so order down a 1/2 size. $100 USD.
