We’ve got used to their Ferrari-red blur on the speedy feet of Andy Roddick, but the Babolat Propulse 3 is now available in two new, slightly more conservative, colour combinations.
The shoe, which has an RRP of £89.99, was initially conceived on the observation that 80% of a player’s movements on the court are lateral or diagonal, and the resulting technologies have been coordinated with that in mind.
Also available in a clay court version, the new colours are in stores nationwide now, with the men’s model including two pairs of laces (blue and grey/green).
Babolat Propulse 3 technologies:
OCS Michelin: Developed in collaboration with Michelin’s R&D team, the Propulse 3 outsole offers optimized traction and is more resistant to wear and tear thanks to OCS sculptures directly inspired by rally racing tires.
Kompressor System: Thermoplastic-filled tubes in the KOMPRESSOR heel system absorb energy when the heel hits the ground, uniformly distributing it for optimum comfort.
Cell Shield: High performance upper made with cellular material stands up to even more abrasion while providing excellent comfort. The mesh lining keeps the foot well ventilated for improved comfort.
Footbelt: Innovative system defined by three points: heel, ankle and instep support offering a tailor made fit for perfect foot-shoe synergy.
