    I'll get a pair; I have the Adidas Barricade 4 Stars and Stripes, but these are way cooler!

    Some of the sponsored players are getting them already. I thought that they would be ugly from the picture, but in real life they are SWEET!

    They look too much like the regular Red colorway from last year. I think Babolat could do better here. Still, they're Green and Blue style from this season is the best :)

    Bubba's. Babolat noticed that Ted Scott had worn the red propulse's while caddying in a tournament, so they asked him on twitter a couple days ago if he wanted a pair of these for the US Open. Whoever runs the official Babolat twitter page seems like a cool dude, by the way.

    I love 'em. Just bought a pair of the Babolat SFX Blue shoes, though, so I'm not really in the market. Maybe they'll drop in price by the time I need another pair.

    Does anyone have them? I have a bit of a wide foot and am using the Defier rs presently. Think of giving this shoe a try.

    I had them in a different colorway, and they were too wide for my foot, particularly in the forefoot. As a frame of reference, I am an adidas guy primarily so used to narrower lasts.
