5 Stars Great product

I was sad when Babolat quit making the Propulse 4 because it is such a great shoe. After reading many less than stellar reviews about their new model I was thrilled to find this shoe.

I used to like Adidas' barricade line the most but this shoe is even better. Great weight, nice support, nice cushioning, and GREAT traction. Also, got these shoes cheap

I've been using this shoe for several years. Very durable and comfortable feel.

4 Stars Great stability shoe

This is the shoe my son wears. He is a junior tournament player and plays daily. He loves it because he can tighten the shoes around the ankles with the Velcro making his ankle feel more stable. He moves well in the shoe. We love it because it has a 6 month outsole guarantee, which we often take advantage of.

5 Stars Great Shoe!!

This is my 5th pair of Babolat's that I play in on various types of courts in both Brooklyn and Florida. They are extremely comfortable and are the only tennis shoe that doesn't allow my feet to move up (prevents damaging the toe nails). With the Michelin sole they outlast any other shoe I have used in the hot Florida sun. My feet stay cool and comfortable. This is an excellent shoe, very supportive and it provides an excellent cushion on the court.

The shoe fits perfectly and is very comfortable. The front and back straps really work. No break in time required.

My son is 14 and he has been wearing this shoe for about 3 years. He absolutely loves how comfortable and durable the shoe is. He especially loves the orange color - he gets a lot of compliments. It's a good looking shoe that performs really well. Highly recommend!

5 Stars All time favorite

I like everything about the shoe. The fit, comfort, stability, durability and the colors. I already have the black and yellow but this one is an eye catcher, I get compliments every time I wear them.

5 Stars Awesome Shoe

Babolat has created a great shoe in the Propulse 4. For a person who is on the court 5-6 days a weeke playing and coaching this shoe is very comfortable. There is no break in time and they are very supporting all around. Babolat has become my shoe for now on.

5 Stars Orange Crush

from NY wrote (November 06, 2014):

Babolat does it again with this shoe. I've had the Babolat V-Pro All-Court and the SFX and this shoe this the best model I've had. The comfort, arch support, toe-cap( for toe-draggers),breathability of the shoe, the footbed strap and that Michelin rubber Outsole complete the shoe. The Propulse 4 is a great shoe for a player that is rough on the Outsole of their tennis shoes. Would love to see the Propulse "5" in a variety of bright colors.
