More streamlined Foot Belt provides tailor-made foot support. Improved court propulsion thanks to the use of Babolat Exact Pro technology.

Shoes need a bit of breaking in or your feet my revolt. Overall well designed. New Balance didn't need breaking in. I'm interested in seeing how they compare with use.

Prior to purchasing the Babolat Propulse 4 I had purchased New Balance 1187. The Babolat shoe is so comfortable, is light weight, and provides great support! I would love to purchase this exact shoe in other colors! I love these shoes!
5 StarsNice shoe!

Like this shoe. Quick break in. Love the strap that gives stability around my instep. Wish it came in a more neutral color as the teal doesn't really match anything in my tennis wardrobe.
