Comments: This is the best racquetball shoe ever!! I have tried Ektelon, Nike, Adidas, and Hi-Tech is the shoe for me.  The S700 was a great shoe and now the M550 is even better.  You can usually pick 1 or 2 things that you don't like in shoe.  I haven't found 1 yet with the M550.

Comments: Great traction, when the sweat starts dripping off my opponents am not slipping, good hug on my feet.  I did switch out my laces for thicker ones from basketball shoes. One thing really bad about Hi-Tec shoes is they never come with comfortable soles, 90% of New Balance are the only ones that come with decent ones out the box. My suggestion is to buy Polysorb by Spenco soles for any RB shoe. Breathability A+ Wear and Tear A+.
