The Babolat Shadow Tour is the elite, flagship shoe of the Babolat range and comes highly recommended from international, county and club players alike. The shoes themselves feature DCS technology, this offers better shock absorption and dynamic response when moving around court.
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.
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 outsole features dual treads in different sizes to maximise grip from any movement or angle on court. A collaboration with world famous tyre manuacturer Michelin is another indication of the high level engineering work that has gone into ensuring optimal traction on court. The shoe also features a higher heel collar to secure your foot in the shoes, combined with a Ariaprene upper for breathability in the shoe itself when playing.

Badminton Shoes Buying Guide
Badminton Shoes – what are the key things to look for when choosing?
- Shoe Support
- Comfort & Fitting
- How lightweight they are
- What Player level the shoes are intended for
- Shoe Durability
- How it looks
A number of the above aspects we try to answer for you in our product performance bars, giving you an understanding of both support and what player level the shoes are intended for.
1. Shoe Support
In our opinion probably the most underappreciated aspect of choosing badminton shoes. Look at the amount of players our there that need knee supports later on in life! Why is this often the case....well usually its because of either bad technique or poor footwear.
You can see on all our Badminton Shoe pages, the level of support the shoe offers is graded, use this as a guide.
2. Comfort & Fitting
These are technically 2 aspects but effectively they cover the same thing. We list all shoes stating how true the fit of the shoe is, both in terms of length and width. This is particularly key for players with narrow or wider feet than the normal person.
In addition to this, look out for the “Designed For” Feature shown in our description section, this will sometimes say “Comfort”. Where this is the case, it means when we've checked the shoes out, and the main strength/focus on the shoes is to provide comfort to the foot when playing.
3. How Lightweight they are
A lightweight shoe is great for players who need fast movement, however this often comes at a cost in reduced shoe support & durability.
On our product pages for Badminton Shoes you can see under the “Designed for” feature if it says “Lightweight”.
4. What Player level the badminton shoes are intended for
We list below each shoe the player level from 0-100, in a graph bar. Obviously if you're a lower level as a player you can still go for a higher level shoe. It simply shoes up to what level of player the badminton shoes can be used for.
5. Shoe Durability
Typically, it's the more you spend....the most durable the shoe is likely to be. Also shoes that state are “Designed For” “Strong Support”, will be more durable than a lightweight slimmer lined shoe.
6. How it looks
Obviously everyone wants to look good when playing.....this one is down to personal preference!
