This may be the most unique shoe in the racquetball market today. In terms of design and style, the Hi-Tec 4:SYS Infinity Flare rises above the competition. The seamless upper combined with the asymmetrical lacing system, makes this shoe so easy to wear you might just forget to take them off after your game. Say goodbye to awkward folds and pinching in the upper, as this shoe was designed with an anatomically correct fit in mind. Huge, mesh-paneled "windows" provide you with more breathability than any other shoe on the market right now without sacrificing support, thanks to the bonded nylon support frame. Of course, this shoe is still outfitted with all of Hi-Tec's tried and true technologies, making it one of the best shoes for racquetball enthusiasts.

  • Fit: Length fits a half size large, we recommend ordering a half size smaller. Width is medium, arch support is low. No break-in required.
  • Upper: Asymmetrical lacing system for superior fit. Mesh paneling for maximum breathability, and bonded nylon for support.
  • Midsole: 4:SYS multi-density midsole for ultimate stability.
  • Outsole: Peak Force outsole designed for serious traction.
  • Weight: 13.6 oz's (Size 10.5)
  • Color: Blue/Lime

Comments: Durability is an issue. Insoles, plastic heal protector, and sides are starting to falling apart after 2 months of play.  Recently feel the inside is pinching my toes. I'm using these on badminton floor mats.  [UPDATE: The store that I purchased these shoes from agreed to send in the pair for warranty approval. The supplier sent me back the 2013 model for free. So far no issues to report. It is slightly narrower than the 2012 model.]

Comments: I like these shoes a lot, they are extremely light and breath well. The durability seems good so far. I have used them for 6 months now. I will comment on traction however, if the court is even slightly dusty, they lack in traction. Keep the soles wiped off and they are an awesome shoe.

Comments: Light weight and minimal. I have been an Asics fan for many years. I recently started wearing Five Finger shoes to help strengthen my feet and improve my over all health so I am always looking for light/minimal shoes to wear in the sports that I like to participate in. These shoes were a perfect match. They grip the court well and help improve my footwork on the court. I bought a pair of Asics Gel Sensei 4 to compare with these and they felt like I was wearing a pair of combat boots compared to the Hi-Tec Infinity Flare 4 shoes. I like them so much that I bought a second pair to alternate with.
