Yonex ™ Sonicage 2 Wide
Yonex Sonicage 2 are hard-soled court shoes suitable for tennis, pickleball and other court sports. Sonicage is consistently one of our top selling court shoe series, primarily because they offer good value at a low price.
Feedback from our customers tells us that Yonex Sonicage are comfortable, recreation-grade tennis shoes suitable for tennis and pickleball on acrylic surfaces. On average, our customers seem to be getting about 500 kilometers out of a pair before the out-soles wear through.
This shoe was created specifically for hard court tennis, but that does not mean it can be used only for tennis. In fact, this shoe is suitable for a wide variety of sports, including:
- clay court tennis
- floor hockey
- cross training
- stage combat
Keep in mind that the sole of this shoe works best on surfaces such as acrylic, vinyl, and carpet. It is not ideal for use on hardwood floors or mats but it can be used on all of them. As always, check with the facility that you will be using to ensure that your choice of footwear complies with their rules.
Width of the Forefoot
Each shoe manufacturer describes the width of their shoes in different ways. This shoe is a men’s extra wide or a ladies’ double extra wide. Some brands call this a 4E, some call it a 3.0, some call it both, some call it neither.
Shape of the Toe Box
This shoe follows the general shape of what we call a T2-taper — sometimes called an Roman foot shape. This foot shape features two long toes of approximately equal length followed by three toes that shorten in succession.
As always, we strongly recommend trying shoes on before buying them. There is a lot more to a proper fit than just the length/width. The shape of your toe line plays a major role in overall comfort.
If your feet are wide, book an appointment for a professional shoe fitting.
If your feet are standard width, order online and choose SHIP TO STORE. You will be able to try them on in the pro shop before committing to them.
The most common warning signs that your shoes do not fit correctly:
- chaffing, calluses, corns, blisters, bunions, hammertoes
- pain in joints or knuckles of toes
- blackened or bruised toenails
- busting or tearing through sides of shoes
- busting or tearing through tops of toe boxes
Contrary what what other players may tell you, shoes that are causing injuries to your feet are not the right size. If you are getting injuries of any kind from your shoes, they are the wrong size, the wrong width, the wrong shape, or all of the above.
Shoes that fit properly allow your feet to move athletically inside of the shoe. This includes toe spreading as well as up-down toe movements that are essential for balance and recovery. Shoes that are too tight restrict your feet from making the adjustments necessary for balance.
If standard-width shoes are causing injuries, you may be too wide for them. Book an appointment for a professional shoe fitting with a coach who is ethically bound to give you good advice.

Stability, lightweight with superior cushioning.
Double Raschel Mesh
Double Raschel Mesh is an ultra fine mesh that is extremely lightweight and durable.
It provides eight times more air exchange for releasing moisture than ordinary mesh fabric.
Hyper msLite is a further 10% lighter than the original high-performance midsole and provides greater durability and comfort. It also encourages significantly lighter footwork during play.
3D Power Graphite Sheet
A graphite plate is inserted under the middle portion of the sole to increase stability and reduce weight within the shoe.
The redesigned 3D Power Graphite Sheet positioned at the mid to outer part of the sole improves torsional rigidity where it is needed most.
New 3D Power Graphite Sheet Torsional Rigidity: +20%
Toe Assist Shape
A toe-centric design that cuts down on pressure in the big toe, as well as offering improved support at the mid-foot and heel for a stable fit. Power loss is reduced, allowing for swift footwork.
Extended support into the forefoot for increased speed and stability.
The YONEX ™ Round Sole is designed to provide all-around support for quick and smooth footwork. The Round Sole ensures smooth movements and transfer of maximum energy.
The YONEX Power Cushion absorbs shock then reverses the impact energy for smooth transfer into the next movement. Compared with urethane, the YONEX Power Cushion construction provides 3 times more shock absorbing power. When dropped from 7m above a Power Cushion sheet, an egg will bounce back 4m without damage.
The visually improved upper design technology increases durability whilst maintaining comfort for smoother footwork.
