Before building the Vantage HOOD designers
went to the leading tennis players and studied
their foot action and shoe requirements.
Then they created this new and distinctly
improved tennis shoe.
The HOOD Vantage has extra toe reinforce-
ment which prevents wear from toe dragging.
Soft, thick sponge cushion heels absorb all
shocks and jars from sliding, smashing play.
Smokrepe soles of live, springy rubber add
speed to your game. Equally good on grass
or clay courts.
Whether you're a champion or a beginner,
you'll play a better game in Hood Vantage
shoes. Made in all sizes for men and women.
