So, after much deliberation, I decided to buy the new Roger Federer tennis sneakers. They were a bit pricey, but I'm a big fan of a previous version and Federer = GOAT.

They're essentially a running shoe with the support and stability of a tennis shoe. When I first saw the colors, I wasn't a fan, but they've grown on me. I realized, though, that they're a fun fashion item and that I should get another pair of tennis sneakers for practice sessions and training. After all, I don't want to destroy such a cool shoe.
My solution was to get a pair of the Yonex SHT-304R, which I'd had my eye on for a while now. They're a bit quirky, but very comfortable and as is typical with Yonex products, well-designed and constructed.
I like the details.
