    I just pickep up a pair of V-Pro clay on sale here in Argentina. I dont know much about them, they are actually my first babolat shoe...
    ]Has anyone used them?

    they look very well made, light and comfortable w/ no break in needed...
    The only downside at first contact is the lacing system...and they fit 1/2 size smaller

    I currently have two pairs of the V-Pro all court and one pair of the clay version. I really like the shoes and as you mentioned they are comfortable right out of the box. I agree on the lacing as I always seem to have a problem with them being tight enough. The clay version has worked very well for me thus far.

    I just bought a pair of V-Pro All Court and they're due to arrive on Monday. They're on sales currently at Tennis Warehouse for $45 only.

    I've played with the v-pro clay today. Really comfy shoe, right out the box comfort.
    Cushioning is good on the heel, but a bit poor on the forefoot. Is very light and traction on clay is excellent...
    The only downsides are imo, the lacing system and lateral stability...

    i think all babolat shoes sit low to the ground under the forefoot so the cushioning is rather thin there. i know my propulse 2s are the same way.

    Used them for a few months, great traction and comfort. The upper leather too soft seemsthey even loosened quite a bit with use, and my left toe kept coming over the very short toe guard.
