Comments: Coming from the Asics Gel Solutions, I found these to have a super cushy, comfortable feel as soon as I
put them on. At first I was concerned the additional weight might slow me down, but on court I did not notice it at all. The best
thing about this shoe is the nice wide toe box, which is great for my bunions. Overall, I'm very happy with these, and plan to stick
with this shoe for the long-term. A couple things that I think could be improved upon: 1) I experienced occasional minor toe
jamming with these, I had to keep tightening the laces at the top to stop my foot from sliding forward. 2) The shoe upper was so
soft it lacked stability at times. 3) I found my Asics to have better cushioning in the ball of foot area. I didn't find these to be 1/2
size large. I'm normally 11 and ordered a 10 1/2 which was too small.
Comments: Just got them and played once, but looking forward to long lasting soles. Good room in toe box. Priced
Comments: The worst shoes I've ever played tennis in. They gave me planter fasciitis that I'm still struggling with
10 months later. I complained via email to Babolat and never received a response. I would never buy Babolat or recommend their
shoes or racquets to anyone. I think their products are gimmicky, cheap quality, and grossly overhyped.
Comments: Great shoe for a wider foot. I broke my big toe playing football and had a hard time finding a
comfortable shoe. Had these for 4 weeks now and play for 2 hours 3 times a week. Great comfort and stability, the first time I had
no pain even after several games.
Comments: Amazingly comfortable with no break-in needed. I'll be buying another pair for when these eventually
Comments: Ordered these and a pair of Babolat SFX (Blue), last Thursday and received them today, 8/12/14. I have
wide feet, bunions, and a high instep. I live in North Florida and play 2-3 times a week on a hard court. While the New Balances
and the Babolats are both good looking shoes, the Babolat SFX won out over the NBs for me. The arch support and the overall
cushioning in the Babolat's were better than the NBs. Also, the toe box was wider in the SFX. Overall, the SFX is a better fit for me
even though the NBs are a 2E. I could not feel the weight difference as the NBs are a tad lighter. I'm keeping the SFX shoes and
returning the NBs.
Comments: I never got to play in these, but just tried them on. They're comfortable right out of the box like other
Babolat shoes I've worn. The toe box was huge on me and I have medium width feet. I also couldn't deal with the EVA type plastic
cage up front. Bring back leather shoes!
Comments: Better than average toe durability. Nice, wide toebox. Extremely comfort-oriented, but still adequately
supportive. I use a custom insole for added arch support. The downside is poor ventilation. The TW testers aren't playing in deep
south heat and humidity. I am in SC and I'm here to tell you that this shoe not only doesn't ventilate air properly, it will also hold
on to sweat until it starts coming out of the top of the shoe. This shoe also rides pretty high, which some people won't like, but
that's because of all the extra cushioning. Good shoe.
Comments: Good arch support. Nice width if you don't like a narrow fit. The tongue stays in place. All-around
Comments: I have wide feet, and these shoes fit them like gloves. I played with them for about 3 hours so far.
Very stable with great traction. Changing direction is noticeably easier compared to my previous shoes. No wear and tear yet. A+
Comments: Great shoes, I already bought 5 pairs. Seems they are making this kind any longer. I play tennis 7 days
a week, and they last me about 3 to 4 months, but I do play up to 4 hours sometimes a day. Love them.
Comments: I just received these shoes and instantly feel the comfort as soon as I put them on. A half size smaller is
the perfect fit -- fits like a glove with a little room. Now I need to see how the durability is on the soles.
Comments: I had been wearing NB shoes that have been discontinued and tried wide Nikes, including custom ones
to accommodate my very wide feet. Finally I tried the SFX and played two hours today in new pair. The shoes started out OK and
got more comfortable as match progressed. The best shoe ever. Just ordered two more pairs for my summer rotation. Thank you.
Comments: Fantastic fit, right out of the box! Got a half size smaller as recommended. They fit perfectly.
Comments: Very wide shoe. I have a medium width foot and bought this wide shoe to accommodate two insoles,
which it does well. (Factory insole on top of Sorbothane Classic Gel insole for superior impact absorption.) I have to tie the
toebox laces very tight to prevent swimming, but it works better than most for two insoles. The factory insole is literally the most
cushioned factory insole I have ever seen, comparable to a $15 after-market insole. That's why I kept it. The laces are difficult to
get tight enough but not over-tight, but once I find the right level, the shoes are excellent. The plush feel of this shoe protects
my feet and body.
Comments: Best shoes I've had so far. Great stability; the tongue stays locked in place, and my feet dont feel
cramped. All around good for tennis!
Comments: Roomy, comfortable and excellent durability. I have a 2E wide foot and had been wearing New Balance
shoes exclusively. New Balance makes a good shoe but the durability is not adequate for hard court play. It is nice to have an
alternative shoe. Hope Babolat does not change the design.
