I’m having the best time learning to play pickleball!
A self described active but not athletic gal, I thought I’d take a lesson to gauge my interest this past spring. Well…fast forward a few months and let’s just say I’ve entered my pickleball era! It’s so much fun and I now play a few times a week. With an increase in court time I knew I needed to swap out my cross trainers for sneakers with more traction and support. I was excited to discover the Easy Spirit x Denise Austin Dilli Sneakers, made for pickleball (and other court sports, too)!
Denise Austin has been an icon and expert in the fitness world for decades!
She’s an inspiration for all ages and fitness levels to be healthy, active, and vital. An avid pickleball player herself, Denise and Easy Spirit partnered together to launch the Dilli court shoe, specifically designed for women! The Dilli provides comfort on the court and allows you to move like a pro with lateral stability and superior cushioning/comfort.
Pickleball features plenty of lateral motion and quick start and stop movements.
The support and traction built into this sneaker are very helpful in avoiding an injury while playing. Comfort is also key, and these provide ample cushioning and breathability for my feet! The first time I wore them I immediately noticed the front of the shoe doesn’t cramp my toes, and the toe box is wide enough to allow for natural foot movement. They are soft right out of the box, no breaking in required! Not to mention, they’re super versatile and the classic white and navy style coordinates with all my pickleball outfits…
Special Features of the Dilli Court Shoe:
Made to move on and off the court…
- Shock absorbing cushioned footbed
- Moisture wicking lining
- Soft and breathable leather upper
- Reinforced stitched forefoot
- Traction dimpled outsole
- Runs true to size ( I took the same size 6.5 I wear in athletic sneakers)
All these features and a price tag under $100, the Dilli is a winner on the court…
Pickleball is a wonderful way to get some sunshine, exercise, and connect with family and friends! Let me know if you try it and if you start playing don’t forget about the fantastic discount on the shoes: Save 20% at easyspirit.com with code ANDREA20.
