The 2018 NEW Babolat Shadow Tour Shoes are built on the success of their new shoe model from last year. The top end shoe, the Babolat Shadow Tour Indoor Court Shoes for men is improved with a lot more cushioning compared to the previous Shadow model. They have added a heel bumper to increase the cushioning further. Harder EVA for increased Shock Absorption & Dynamic Response as well as the tongue with a design to wrap around the foot for extra support.
A new upper made from Ariaprene, features 2 layers of mesh and 1 layer of recycled EVA foam in the middle!
As well as this, they have added a new bumper on the medial side for abrasion protection which is thicker to increase durability as well as being stitched.
The sole of the 2018 Shadow Tour shoes are designed for Attack & Propulsion, they have deeper studs for more durability yet bigger studs for closer contact to the court.
