Green tennis shoes have always struck us as the best tennis shoes to be used on a grass tennis court. After all, if you are slipping and sliding around that court, you would probably end up staining your tennis shoes. A least the color green is going to be able to help cover that a little bit [2].

Even if you are not playing on grass, green tennis shoes look stylish. They never tend to be over the top green, just more laid-back colors. The type of color that you would be wearing if you wanted to inject a bit of style into the effort that you wear in your normal outfit.
