The One was created for the player that is done abusing their feet on the courts and knows that comfort can be a performance advantage.

  • WHAT

    The One starts with a hard to believe level of underfoot cushion coupled with an upper devoid of areas of discomfort. And yet The One delivers the support and durability for the demands of racquet sports. It's a magical combination.

  • WHY

    If you love playing in your shoes, you will play more. This is why Frank Works exists.

Well, now they can

A seemingly simple question that has gone unanswered for too long requires a deep understanding of both the athlete's needs and shoe making constraints before being answered.

Frank Works was born to answer this question and create the solution.

We want you to play more.

Tennis, pickleball, padel...you get the idea.

The One expertly combines the comfort of a running shoe with the function of a court shoe.  Developing a product that delivers on the athlete's needs while obsessively eliminating discomfort is an art we call FEETCRAFT.  Sometimes that means adding more of something, often times it means less. 

We know the difference. 

    Reactions to the one

    commentator, coach and former world ranked player

    Candy Reid-Harrop

    There's a reason this shoe is called 'The One!' I've played hundreds of tennis matches and been on court for thousands of hours, coaching top British Juniors, and this is easily the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. I could literally wear it all day, which as any tennis player knows, is extremely unusual. On court, I love the lightness of the shoe and the way it helps me move. 5 Stars!

    CEO, Courtside Guide

    Scott Colebourne

    I've played tennis and pickleball and padel in this shoe over the past month and it is amazing. It is by far the most comfortable shoe that I've ever had. I played pickleball last week and I wore the shoe for 10 hours afterwards. I don't think in my 20 years of coaching tennis I ever wore a shoe for 10 hours and felt good afterwards but this shoe feels great.

    VP, Commercial Operations, DUPR

    Ryan Maher

    I wanted to let you know that I played pickleball for 7 hours on Saturday and the shoes performed incredibly! I would have loved to have this shoe during my time competing nationally in outdoor racquetball tournaments.

    A good friend of mine who is also one of the best pickleball instructors in STL tried mine on and loved them! I would have loved for you to get his reaction when he put them on. It was commercial material!

    • We've been working towards this for 25 years

      We have always shared a love for athletic shoes and what they can mean to people. We've conceived, designed, marketed and sold sneakers for brands big and small. Frank Works is our chance to focus on making products that bring a bit more joy to people's days while participating in their favorite sport.

    Find Us

    Trusting a new shoe brand is a big deal. We get it. So much so that we strive to eliminate the obstacle of the unknown as much as we can. We will soon be hitting the road for The One Demo Days.

    Try them. Feel the difference. No obligation.

    For now, if you are in the Atlanta area and are interested in a demo event at your favorite court or event, reach out via our Contact form and we will do our best to get something scheduled.


    what about pickleball? or padel?

    Short Answer - Yes.

    Longer Answer, the same reasons why The One works so well for tennis players apply. More cushion, customizable fit with our strong yet conforming strap, an incredible heel lock down for confidence inducing ankle support, the lateral support provided by our innovative 2 density midsole, all of these attributes mean you can confidently take it onto your favorite court.

    How do I contact you?

    If you cannot find the information you are looking for, please fill out our contact form and we will get back to you as quick as we can.

    Shipping and Returns


    Once your order is placed we will process it the same or next day. From there, our carrier partners handle the rest.

    Shipping to you is free. We ship to all 50 states in the U.S. We ship out of the Atlanta area, so shipments to Alaska and Hawaii will require a bit more time for delivery.

    Return Policy

    Please inspect your order upon receipt and contact us immediately if the item is defective, damaged or if you receive the wrong item, so that we can evaluate the issue and correct it if need be.

    We have a 30-day return and refund policy, which means you have 30 days after receiving your item to request a return.

    To be eligible for a return or refund, your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unworn or unused, with tags, and in its original packaging. You’ll also need the receipt or proof of purchase.

    To start a return, please fill out our contact form.

    Size Guide

    We know buying shoes from a new brand can be tricky. To minimize the risk of getting the wrong size, we recommend bumping up a 1/2 size from your current tennis shoe. This has worked for the overwhelming majority of players. Please keep that in consideration when ordering.
