Technologies

Cell Shield: A high performance upper made with cellular material that stands up to even the toughest abrasion while providing excellent comfort. Smaller, more densely concentrated cells on the inner part of the shoe and bigger, more spread out cells on the top provide the perfect combination of durability and comfort.

Foot Belt: Babolat’s extensive research has found that foot support is based on four criteria. Foot Belt technology provides a perfect response to these support criteria

Lateral Stability System: In order to combine support and stability, Babolat has designed the exclusive LSS—a two-in-one that incorporates both shank and stiffener to form a genuine skeleton for the shoe. The LSS gives players both vertical stability and lateral support, especially in extreme situations involving sharp stopping and starting.

Side 2 Side: With Side 2 Side, Babolat goes one step further: thanks to a 3D fishbone surrounded by dynamic PU foam, the Side 2 Side system gives the foot even greater responsiveness, with a power boost on every rebound and on every step.

Kompressor System: The Kompressor System heel cushioning technology provides increased comfort and shock absorption during aggressive court movement.

Michelin OCS2: OCS2 is an ultra-high-performance outsole for all types of courts with an innovative sole structure of gel caps positioned in seamless, circular, patterns of positive and negative relief, directly inspired by road-rally tires. OCS2 gives optimum traction on all courts: The surface into contact with the court and the shape and direction of the treads were both designed to allow a better connection with the playing surface, and therefore more precise starting and stopping. It also offers the perfect balance between sliding and traction on clay courts: The positive relief patterns on the inner part of the foot ensure excellent evacuation of the clay for quick, clean starts. The positioning of the negative relief patterns along the main footwork axis (35°) on the outer part of the foot ensure well-controlled slides.

In addition, the disign and colors are just great!

In addition, the disign and colors are just great! it was surprising to see the Michelin man logo in the back of the shoe, I was not asare of this feature when I bought the shoe on line, but it is a great feature to have and highlight that this is not a conventional bottom.

Great shoe, but the cosmetics are not nearly as good as the previous two models.

These are great shoes. There was no break-in period

These are great shoes. There was no break-in period required. These shoes are little bit stiffer than the Propulse 3, but they provide more support and are just as comfortable. I felt very light on my feet and explosive on the court. I am very happy with the purchase.

So I just got these yesterday from Babolat as a replacement

So I just got these yesterday from Babolat as a replacement for a pair of Propulse 3's that I wore out in less than 3 months. Initial reactions is that they feel considerably stiffer and narrower in the toe box than the preveious model. Unlike the 3's, these are going to require a break in period. Also the velcro straps on the foot belt system feel lighter weight, time will tell if they hold up.

I really like these shoes! Compared to the propulse

I really like these shoes! Compared to the propulse 3 (P3) that I still have, I noticed that the shoe felt a bit more comfortable out of the box with a some more cushioning underneath the forefoot. There's also more cushioning/fabric on top of the forefoot which prevented the blistering that I get on top of my fourth toe with the P3's (circumvented with some preventative taping). I'm an advanced player and as primarily a defensive baseliner, I found the shoes offered the same incredible lateral and forward/backward stability as the P3's but with more grip and less sliding/slippage on plexicushion hard court. I felt like I could turn on a dime without slipping or rolling an ankle. The shoe had no problem accommodating my EE wide feet as well as my ankle braces after a short 15 min break-in period. Length-wise was the same as the P3s. My only criticism is that the velcro strap on top of the foot is thinner and shorter compared to the previous model and I was only able to attaches half an inch of velcro onto itself. I was afraid it would break or become loose during play but it never did. I can't yet judge the durability of these shoes but I have a feeling the outsole is like a sports tire and wears quickly but has excellent traction. I normally play 2hrs of singles 3-4 times a week and would definitely buy them again if they can last me 3 months.

I got these shoes in the mail yesterday and tried them

I got these shoes in the mail yesterday and tried them out for my 4.0 practice. I played 2 sets of doubles and 2 of singles. The shoes felt good right out of the box and slightly lighter/faster compared to my Barricades. Although they felt good, I am worried about the durability. I am hard on shoes which is why I wanted to try something new since the Barricade 7s do not last as long as the 6s. These new shoes showed some serious signs of wear on the soles after only one use. I will be surprised if they last 2 months, but I'll give them a shot and see what happens.

Premium cosmetics. Snug fit and excellent support.

Premium cosmetics. Snug fit and excellent support. Improved outsoles from previous version. Outsole treading patten looks and feels like patent certified. Better uppers, less elasticity resulting in more of a glove-like feel. Thicker insoles for better cushioning. Best Propulse so far. Clearly, Babolat has spent some time in their labs to create a new iteration that simply looks, feels, and plays like no other.

I play highschool tennis and I have had these since

I play highschool tennis and I have had these since the day they came out. I'll tell you now I will not be getting these again. They are already torn up and worn on the bottom. They dont fit as well as the Propulse 3, and I've had nothing but problems from these shoes. The next shoe I'm going to get will be the Nike Zoom Vapor.

I loved the older Propulse, great fit right out of

I loved the older Propulse, great fit right out of the box and the footbelt system was great for locking your foot in. The new 4's have been noticeably narrowed in the toe box and are causing serious pain in my toes, even other people who saw them on me commented on how narrow they looked. If you have narrow feet these might work for you but if you have a wider toe beware. So the search is on for a new shoe.

These shoes are good, for me, they are a big improvement

These shoes are good, for me, they are a big improvement over the Propulse 3. They are stiffer and thinner in the toe box. The upper is not as soft, which is good because that was one of the things that made me crazy about the Propulse 3. These are comfortable right out of the box and become more comfortable as you break them in. I've got about 12 hours of match play in them and they are holding up well. The straps feel a little flimsy but they still work. I've played on clay and hard courts and they handle well on both.
