The Qatar Classic 2013 Championship just finished and what a tournament it was. There were a number of unexpected upsets. Daryl Selby took out James Willstrop, Borja Golan elminated Gregory Gaultier and Mohamed Elshorbagy beat Karim Darwish. That left us with a Nick Matthew vs Mohamed Elshorbaby final. What a final it was. A massive battle between two tremendous players. Shorbagy came through and won his first World Series event with a hard fought 5-game victory.

Another Review of the Hi-Tec Infinity Flare Squash Shoes

I am lucky enough to know the Canadian #1 under 19 player Cameron Seth.  Cameron is off to University but is from my hometown and grew up playing out of my home club. Cam just recently switched to using the Hi-Tec Infinity Flare Squash shoes.  I asked if he would be kind enough to provide his opinion on them after he had a chance to use them for a while.  Knowing Cam and the work he does on the court and the level he plays at his opinion of them is pretty valuable. Here is what he wrote:

Review of the Hi-Tec V-Lite Infinity Flare Squash Shoes

Hi-Tec V-Lite Infinity Flare Squash Shoes as used by Nick Matthew

The new shoes of Nick Matthew are in stock as we announced earlier.  There has been a great deal of interest in them and one my customers was nice enough to provide some feedback on them.  The feedback very much supports the marketing of the technology behind the shoes which was nice to see.  In particular that the offset lacing holds the foot in place better than traditional lacing.  I hope this review is helpful for those of you considering purchasing these great shoes.  If you do want to purchase a pair please click here.

Review of the Hi-Tec Infinity Flare Squash Shoes

“So here is my review so far…..

Shoe fits same as Gel Blast 4…….The offset lacing running down the bone to the big toe seems to hold my foot a bit better in the shoe though. As a result, there was no backward/forward or left/right movement of my foot in the shoe whatsoever.

So if you have a customer coming out of Gel Blast 4’s, I would advise they get the same size.

……..The extra material on the outside of the shoe (from the laces being offset), also seemed very supportive (I tend to put a lot of pressure on this part of the shoe)

The shoe is very stable with great grip…….My court footwork needs work, but I am very quick..…As a result I end up lunging an awful lot, and I felt extremely comfortable moving aggressively around the court.

They don’t have the Rhino skin like the Gel Blast, and with all my lunging I have a lot of toe drag….I have burned through the big toe joint part on all of my squash shoes, so we will see how these shoes stand up to the punishment.

So, I really like these shoes, and am glad I decided to try something different and get them.

Thanks very much for getting them to me so quickly.”
