The Shadow Spirit has been designed for intense playing. In addition to being more comfortable, it has all the qualities required for optimal moves and stances, without friction or damage. It perfectly meets the needs of long training sessions and repeated matches. Nothing will stop you. (These are the latest models of 2023 )
"MOVE AND POSITION YOURSELF WITH AGILITY
You can only take advantage if you are responsive and precise in your stances and moves. The Michelin and Babolat engineering teams have collaborated for long months to develop a special sole with remarkable performance: a three-dimensional grip, combined with a unique rubber formula, guarantees explosive movements and controlled sudden stops, without compromising on durability.
CUSHION AND PROTECT
The heel, which endures heavy strain, is protected by a bi-density sole that absorbs shocks and at the same time helps you rebound. The shoe's structure has been designed to support the foot for any type of stance; the upper material moulds the foot's shape while preventing the foot from moving inside the shoe. Play in total safety.
PERFORMANCE WITHOUT COMPROMISING ON COMFORT
Discomfort must not ruin the pleasure of the game and the desire to win. The Shadow Tour is comfortable, even after several hours of playing: the soft tongue and high collar surround the foot without being too tight, the anti-bacterial moulded inner sole hugs the shape of the foot and prevents odours and the upper material allows your foot to breathe.
The 2-mesh lamination and perforated foam make the upper breathable, supportive and tough for optimal and long-lasting performance.
A bi-density midsole for better shock absorption and a dynamic answer.
SINGLE LAYER MESH
A Matryx piece on the forefoot gives extra support for lateral movements.
A hard-wearing protective piece covering the inner forefoot to improve the durability of the upper.
ORTHOLITE DIE CUT
The properties of the foam composition mean that the OrthoLite® die-cut insole provides exceptional comfort, breathability and durability.
The Michelin rubber has been developed specifically for badminton to offer the best combination of grip and durability on all types of indoor court."
