BABOLAT SENSA WOMENS PADEL SHOES – Why invest in great padel shoes : Your feet are just as important (if not more) when it comes to playing all racket sport, than anything else. In order to feel and play your best, you need great shoes that will complement the way you should move on the court. With the wrong shoes, you may suffer from discomfort AND end up with injuries or blisters.
Padel requires more vertical movement and sudden, swift rotations. By contrast, tennis predominantly calls for horizontal movement along the baseline. For this reason, the soles and upper for padel shoes and tennis shoes differ. Padel shoes have a stiffer sole to allow rotation and a softer upper to provide increased flexibility.The main idea behind specific padel shoes is to provide maximum comfort, lightness, and flexibility for padel players.
In the past, the typical padel outsole featured a herringbone design like clay-court shoes. Many padel players were using clay tennis shoes while they were playing because they helped with sliding on the artificial grass. However, new padel courts are now built with very little or no sand, so there’s no point in using clay tennis shoes, which are less durable and compromise performance on padel courts.

BABOLAT was founded in 1875 in Lyon, France, and is the oldest racket sports company in the world. Its originator, Pierre Babolat, invented the first racket strings – made of natural gut, and 1925 Rene Lacoste won the French Open using a tennis racket strung with Babolat strings. Since then Babolat strings have won at least one Grand Slam title every year. In 1994 the company diversified from strings and introduced its first tennis racket. Babolat has continued to build its reputation by offering products at the forefront of technology and by supplying equipment to generations of champions who have won the most prestigious competitions.
