Holabird Customer Service is ACEs!
Having come from the ASICS Gel Resolution-line of shoes for umpteen years, the HEAD Revolt EVO was a shot in the dark. I'm impressed with them, with provisos...
1) The ride is quite high, particularly in the heel. It's not unpleasant, just different. For me.
2) I don't have quite the feeling of the court like I do with the GelRes.
3) The fit is a little tight, and I have a slightly narrow foot.
4) The toe box is smaller than the GelRes line and I've the new blisters to prove it. I recommend sizing up 1/2 size if you've a wide forefoot and/or toes longer than your 'big' toe.
That said, the quality of the shoe strikes me as being of premium shoe-level. The sole is tough and yet still very responsive to quick foot movements. I'm a foot-dragger and not at all easy on my shoes, yet the toes are still holding up very well after 20+ hours on very hard/rough courts and the soles show very little wear to date.
They're pretty light feeling and the air ventilation design is excellent. I wish more manufacturers were as innovative on that score.
The lateral stability is impressively good. My feet and ankles feel secure.
The 6-month guarantee is a winner, too.
Not sure how anyone gets royal blue for the darker color on this colorway (Anthracite/Royal Blue) because it's as black as can be - frankly, I like it better black. I have got several admiring comments from other players, FWIW.
