Andy Roddick signature shoe: Babolat Propulse 3

For only the third time in 24 meetings, Andy Roddick beat Roger Federer yesterday in the third round of Miami.
He did so wearing his signature shoe, the Babolat Propulse 3.

The Propulse 3, also available for juniors, is an innovative all-court shoe featuring new colors: black and lime green for men and black and hot pink for women.
Since its launch in 2007, the shoe has been endorsed and worn by Andy Roddick.

Technology highlights for the Propulse 3 include:

Kompressor System — Heel system with Thermo Plastic Rubber (TPR) filled tubes in the rubber to absorb energy when the heel hits the ground, uniformly distributing it for optimum comfort.

Cell Shield — Provides durability to the upper to stand up to even more abrasion while providing excellent comfort.

Exact PRO Technology — Propulsion system under the forefoot generates a dynamic impulse in lateral movements for faster footwork.

Michelin OCS (Optimized Cell System) — Developed in collaboration with Michelin’s R&D team, the Propulse 3 outsole offers optimized traction and is more resistant to wear and tear.

Foot Belt — Innovative system defined by three points: heel, ankle and instep support offering a tailor made fit for perfect foot-shoe synergy.
