    Has anyone seen the new Babolat shoe? The kids at the John Newcombe Tennis Academy are testing them. How can I get a pair? Does anyone have any contacts? Thanks for the help.

    Not new, it's been in the works for a long time and has actually been out for a while.Last time I saw it it looks alot like the Barricade and if I was attacking a market area that's where I'd go since the Barricade is the best selling tennis shoe.I have yet to see US distribution and or even non Euro distribution.

    Hawaii or Richard, do you know which Barricade model they resemble?

    I saw some Babalot clothing last year on a match on the tube. Made a few inquiries about it's availability in the USA and was told possible release in 2005. You could assume that is for shoes too. If anyone knows a shop where it is available in Europe or on the net, please post the contact.

    really, i would like to check those out. if they look half as cool as babolat's racquets, i would probably get them, as long as they are not as expensive as their racquets.

    Knowing Babolat, their clothes are probably too stiff, over-priced, and all hype. Also, they probably got their patterns and cuts from ProKennex clothes.
