Maybe Nick Matthew will actually wear them this year. Last year he seemed to alternate between these (well, last year’s model) and his ancient Hi-Tec S701s.

Here’s another new color scheme for 2013. They call this scheme Blue and “Tangelo”.

For reference, this is a tangelo:

Here’s a video of Nick talking about the shoes. Check out the interesting pattern of the laces.

And here’s another video with Nick Matthew, this one looking more like a TV commercial.

The roar at the end of that video is a bit weird, but overall still pretty cool. I like that this shoe has its own trailer.

It’s also available in this charcoal gray color:

He’s wearing his new Hi-Tec Infinity Flare shoes. He actually started off the match wearing his old shoes, the Hi-Tec S701 4SYS. But after the first game he was treated for blisters on his feet, and when he came back on court he was wearing the Infinty Flares.

Here are a couple more photos of the Hi-Tec Infinity Flare.

I’ve seen a few negative reviews on the these shoes. I’ve heard they caused a “nasty blister” and are “cheaply made and uncomfortable”. Other reviewers in this forum thread came to the defense of the Infinity Flares.

    The Infinity Flare are nice shoes, but unfortunately the sole wears off in less than two months, if you play regularly. Hopefully they did fix that in the new version, but by looking at the pictures, the sole looks exactly the same to me…

      Thanks Kevin

    I was very excited by these shoes but they turned out to be the worst I had ever worn. Grip seemed to wear away really quickly and they are now in the bin replaced by Peter Nicol’s bright luminous green prince shoes.
