Ashaway ABS511 Seattle
Star rating 3.5/5
Official Site Ashaway UK
Best known as a manufacturer of squash racket string, Ashaway also do a line of shoes with the Seattle one of their leading pairs constructed from a leather-look EVA with emphasis on improved breathability, cushioning and support.
While they’re bulky on appearance and on first touch, the Ashaway’s are surprisingly lightweight on foot and provide a decent level of cushioning and support for the player.
The level of foot stability is lacking when compared to the offerings from more established brands and they don’t give you the same confidence when involved in particularly demanding rallies, but the minimalistic design and relative obscurity of the brand within the shoe sector make this shoe an appealing prospect for anyone wishing to avoid purchasing from one of the established market leaders.
Coming in at £60, these shoes are value for money terms and Ashaway have done a decent job in producing a shoe that provides satisfactory returns for the cost.
Not a stand out winner in any category, these shoes are a solid performer across the board – more than can be said for our current on-court form!
- Good size-related fitting
- Wide forefoot space
- Good toe room
- Above average heel padding
