The shoe of choice for Rafael Nadal, the Air Max Courtballistec 3.3 brings a new level of support, durability and speed to the court. This shoe is the perfect choice for the explosive player. Nadal has been known to put a hole through the upper of a shoe in one match, to address that issue Nike has improved upper durability with the beefed up Drag-On 2X material in key areas. The medial side of the upper features additional Drag-On 2X to protect the shoe when the player slides during aggressive lateral lunges. Lunarlon returns in the forefoot of the midsole to offer comfortable yet low-profile cushioning while Max Air takes the sting out of tough landings in the heel. The lacing system is connected to internal straps for a customized fit and the ultimate in comfortable support. Built around an all-new last, this shoe is the perfect choice for those seeking the ultimate blend of comfort, performance and durability.
