Babolat Badminton Shoes

Babolat badminton shoes are trusted by some of Europe’s best players, including English national champion and European silver medalist Chloe Birch. Having tested the Babolat shoes ourselves we also trust that you'll love them as much as we do!

But who are Babolat?

Founded in 1875, Babolat is one of the oldest racket sports equipment manufacturers in the world. After initially specialising in tennis and becoming a market leader in string and racket technology, Babolat then expanded their expertise into badminton in 1995. Now one of Europe’s leading brands, Babolat is continuing to build on its success in tennis, transferring innovative technologies into badminton. 

In their efforts to constantly raise the bar in technology and performance, Babolat often form partnerships in other industries. An example of this is their shoe collaboration with grip technology experts Michelin. Since 2005 Babolat have been able to glean information from Michelin engineers, aiming to optimise grip for the explosive movement and sudden stops that are essential in badminton. 

Babolat shoe range breakdown

Babolat badminton shoes have been growing in popularity year upon year, with the Babolat Shadow Tour favoured by many experienced club, county and elite level players. The Shadow Tour is the shoe of choice for English national champion and European silver medalist Chloe Birch. The Shadow Tour is often praised for the outstanding grip provided by the outsole, as well as the high level of comfort and support and breathability. 

Other options within the Babolat badminton shoe range include the more budget friendly Babolat Shadow Spirit. The Spirit borrows the Shadow Tour’s outsole, meaning you get the same outstanding grip but for a fraction of the price. Many mid-range badminton shoes lack ventilation but the Shadow Spirit contains a breathable mesh as well as midsole vent for foot cooling. They also offer excellent comfort and support making them a good choice for competitive club and tournament players. 

Babolat badminton shoes are generally a standard width so they fit many different foot types. The sizing is typically ‘true to size’, meaning you can be confident in ordering your regular shoe size.

All badminton shoe orders from Badminton HQ will include free, customisable insoles to aid with getting the right fit for you. Additionally if you find your dream badminton trainers cheaper elsewhere, we’ll match the price you found and also give you back 10% of the difference in the price!
