Comments: I wore New Balance (10 EE) tennis shoes prior to trying the SFX. I initially ordered a 9 1/2 SFX since I
read they fit 1/2 size larger. Got them from TW. Too small. Returned for size 10 which fits great. These shoes are very
comfortable, durable and stylish. These are a great performance shoe. I just ordered my second pair to rotate with during the
summer. Highly recommended!
Comments: After using these shoes for a few tennis sessions, I realized that my knee problems were almost gone
thanks to the great insole and shock damper in the heel.
Comments: Great shoes, very comfortable with my wide feet. I had them for almost a year and they are stlll good.
Not so crazy about the color though.
Comments: I'm a 4.0 and weigh 190 pounds and these shoes are terrific. I bought them after reading about them
on this site. I always wore New Balance for my wide feet but found them to be pretty ordinary. Then I bought other brands to wear
with thin socks but they were never as comfortable. These ones are perfect even though I'm a little uncomfortable with the color!
They play well on all surfaces.
Comments: Love these shoes. Wore them for 8 months. They are now getting thin in the front sole from a lot of
play, but the tops still look new. What I like the most is that when you tie these, they stay tight. I thought at first that they looked
plasticky and too blue, but I have got more positive comments on these shoes than any others I have ever worn. I was wearing
New Balance before for their wide shoes. These, although not labeled for wide, are a perfect fit and are better than New Balance
for comfort and fit.
Comments: I really enjoyed this shoe very much and provided a lot of comfort and maneuverability. Don't forget to
get half a size smaller. Really liked these but kinda want to see how the Nike Vapor 9 Tours are and see where it takes me.
Comments: A very comfortable shoe! They do run "roomy" so you might even try a half size under your normal size.
I wear custom orthotics and found it best to place them on top of the shoe insert that is supplied.
Comments: So far so good. I've been wearing K-Swiss and New Balance for a long time, but made the switch to the
Babolat SFX shoes about two months ago on the recommendation of a friend. They fit my feet nice, not squished like a lot of
European footwear. I found they run true to size or a little smaller than advertised. The big attention-getters are the 6 month
guarantee, the ample support of the midsole, and the self-centering tongue -- .yes it actually stays on the bridge of my foot!
Imagine that? There are flat elastic bands that run from the tongue down each side of the shoe and they work too! The shoe is a
little pricy, but worth it to me. I'm 190 lbs and a good mover, these shoes are taking the punishment so far.
Comments: I love these shoes! I had been wearing Adidas shoes for the last 5 years, but these are so much more
comfortable and the sole doesn't wear anywhere near as much. My only fault would be a small lack of grip when running along the
baseline, but it is rare and won't affect you that much.
Comments: This is a good shoe for people with wide feet and for anyone who burns through outsoles fast. I have
tried Nike Courballistec 4.3 (way too narrow, but good durability), Asics Gel Resolution 4 (too narrow, but excellent stability), and
the New Balance 996 (worst durability). This shoe is comfy, supportive and wide enough for my EE feet. Plus, it is holding up well
under my 220lb weight. I bought 2 pairs!
Comments: I bought these shoes last season after a tennis magazine review. I'm a 9.5 EE supinator and have been
using NB's because they carry EE, but I have not been satisfied with he durability. Despite everyone commenting that the SFX run
big I had to move up to a size 10 to get they proper fit. When you 1st put them on they tend to feel tighter, but after 20 min of
play so it seems that the material stretches some. The cushioning is great and the durability of the sole is much better than the
NB's, yet the sole is still flexible enough. I only wish they were a touch lighter. I'd recommend them mostly because when I'm
wearing them I don't think about my feet at all, I just think about my game. I also tried the Head Speed Pro shoe because they
were rumored to run wide but also had to go up to size ten in them. They were not as good and were too stiff and maybe not
enough arch support.
Comments: Love this shoe. FInally found a shoe that fits me well and feels great. Please do not change a thing on
this shoe. Fits my wide feet extremely well. I'm ordering a backup pair.
Comments: I gravitate toward a wider fit shoe, so I bought this one based on the TW review. The width was correct
as noted, but I didn't pay attention to the word "roomy" enough. "Roomy" was not wide enough for me. This shoe has a lot of
room above the toe box. I did not like that at all. I am not sure if this was the reason I felt as though my heal was lower than the
ball of my feet. I returned them only because of this reason.
Comments: A great overall shoe and very comfortable. I am a junior player and they fit my game and have a great
style. They are more durable that the Babolat Propulse 3s. Fantastic shoe!
Comments: I purchased these after reading the reviews and recommendations for wide-footers. I have flat feet and
an ankle condition, so buying sneakers and shoes is always a challenge. I also have experienced problems with NB tennis shoes,
particularly the 1005s, in that my left toes were getting bruised from the toe box after playing. So far I've had no such issues with
these Babolats. They are extremely comfortable and roomy. The bottom sole has pretty hard rubber-like material, so I'm sure
they are durable, and the cushy insole inside masks any harshness. If I had one criticism so far, it would be the mild ankle
support. Otherwise, these are great shoes and I think I'll start using them as my main kicks.
Comments: After a bad experience with the Nike 2K11, which felt like rocks on the bottom of my feet, I was steered
to this shoe by a friend. My summer season was saved! They are very comfortable out of the box, and a good fit for my wide feet
(EE). Good performance shoe. I've had them since July and the 6 month durability might get tested if the weather in the Mid
Atlantic is as warm as last year.
Comments: I love this shoe! Get a half size smaller than the Propulse 3, and wear thick socks. These shoes have
great comfort, cushioning, and stability.
Comments: These things run huge in size! In the Propulse 3 I take an 11.5, in these I ordered an 11 and even with
the thickest Thorlo's these SFX are too big!
Comments: Although these shoes look bizarre and I am not sure why Babolat thinks we want
to look to like Frankenberry while we play tennis, they are comfortable and durable. They
have a very beefed up insert with memory foam. They have really great lateral support. The
toe box on these and the Propulse 3 seems baggy to me, but all in all if you don't mind
looking like you are a giant tennis playing blueberry you will like these shoes.
Comments: Great for wide feet (I am EE). Most Babolats I wear a size 11 or more. These are a true 10 1/2 wide.
Super comfortable yet light, and decent longevity.
Comments: Very solid shoe doesn't flex like the Prince T22, I need a wide shoe and this is pretty wide.
Feels a bit hard, but performance is awesome.
Comments: These shoes look great and they are comfy. They feel more durable than the Babolat
Propulse's, but as always Babolat has sizing issues. I bought these before the sizing recommendation was posted and
had to gve them to my doubles partner.
Comments: Not good for orthotics because when I remove the insert, which is extra thick, my orthotics
are thinner so ends up there is too much height in the toe box. Seems like a high quality shoe, so If you do not use
orthotics then you should try this shoe.
Comments: This shoe is a better more stable and durable shoe than the Propulse line, runs half size too
big for me, color is even cooler than it looks in pictures. Sole seems more durable but not as durable as Prince, Asics or
Barricades. Babolat always seems to wear faster than many I have tried. Still a very comfortable and fashionable shoe.
Comments: I have been a loyal Nike customer for many years when it comes to my tennis shoes, but I
recently tried on and bought this Babolat shoe and was very impressed. The new Rafa shoe seemed tight and stiff
where this Babolat shoe demonstrated great feel and comfort right out of the box. Most Babolat shoes in the past were
also very ugly and this blue shoe is the first that looks cool as well as feeling great, and in contrast the new Nike shoes
appear to have no clue what they are doing from a color and/or looks standpoint. My only concern is how these
Babolat's will hold up over time, but for now I would encourage you to try on these shoes before buying the more high
Comments: TW Review! So awesome! The fit is perfect! So smooth when on the court! Not insanely
durable but it has a 6-month guarantee! Let's go!!!
Comments: This is a great shoe! It is very comfortable and looks cool too.
Comments: Very comfy shoe, runs a half size too big. A little unstable
in the ankle but otherwise very light shoes.
Comments: Very comfortable. If you are between sizes go with the smaller size. Wide toe box, too wide
for me, but
may be just right for others.
