While most sports, like basketball, football and soccer, generally only require one type of shoe, tennis is different in that the sport's circuit incudes three different types of court (hard, clay, and grass), all of which technically require a different type of shoe. With that said, there are a select group of tennis sneakers out there that are versatile enough to conquer any of the three surface types, eliminating the hassel of needing an entire set of shoes just to play some tennis. Here's a list of the five best all-around tennis sneakers.
