What's the difference between Sneakers and Tennis shoes?

I call all sneakers tennis shoes or are tennis shoes for tennis playing only...I guess I was wrong all along.

  • I thought they were the same too. Although I use the word sneakers and trainers more then tennis shoes.

  • I've never used sneakers or trainers, just tennis shoes. Though, if they are for a specific purpose, I will call them by that name. For example, my baby's Saucony's are just tennis shoes...but my Asics are my running shoes. Or I'll just call them by the brand name, that works too.

  • One was used to sneek up and surprise because they were quiet and the other was used to prevent you from sliding while on the court. I don't know - that was just BS. They seem to be the same in today's world.

  • Well... i joined this site just to answer this question... I will be playing tennis this Year... The Difference is Tennis Shoes are More flat so the Grip Is right down on the Flat Surface(The Tennis Court).... And Where running shoes or Regular Shoes give you the Ability to Go Back and Forwards Quicker... tennis Shoes allow you to move Back and Forth Quickly, as well as from Side to Side, So you can get to the Ball Quicker...
