The shoe of choice for Stan Wawrinka, the Power Cushion Eclipsion 2 is built for the grueling demands of pro tennis. Based on a narrower design, the Power Cushion Eclipsion 2 does require a slight break-in period as the upper is rather stiff. Featured with more heel absorption than the first generation of the Eclispsion, this model is also more durable and secure. Beefed up wear zones have generally become the name of the game for high performance tennis shoes across the board, and the Power Cushion Eclipsion 2 is no exception. From more protection on the toe area to the medial side of the shoe, you’ll feel confident starting and stopping in this model. Breathability is also impressive on the Power Cushion Eclipsion 2, and is further exemplified through the strategically placed mesh holes on the top and side of the shoe.

All in all, Wawrinka’s latest footwear for 2018 is a must try for those players looking for a good blend between comfort and durability.
