Babolat introduces Stars & Stripes shoe

June 15, 2012

Boulder, Colorado — Babolat, leading manufacturer of tennis equipment, has introduced its special edition Babolat Stars & Stripes men’s shoe, endorsed by Andy Roddick, as a salute to the 2012 Summer Olympics and upcoming U.S. hard court events. The Stars & Stripes exclusive design is based on Babolat’s popular Propulse 3, providing a concentrated dose of high-tech power for the expert players seeking unmatched performance.

Babolat studies players’ movements on the courts to design products that answer to their specific needs, such as the constant lateral and diagonal movement that accounts for 80% of all movement on the court. The Propulse range is Babolat’s highest performing line of shoes to meet these demands.

As part of the Babolat Stars & Stripes shoe launch, Babolat is holding a “Show Your Stripes; See the Stars” consumer promotion via social media. The promotion allows fans to show off their tennis knowledge about the U.S. and France (and of course Babolat) by answering a series of questions for the chance to be entered to win a trip to see the tennis stars at the biggest U.S. tournament of the year. The promotion features a new topic every day, plus chances to win great Babolat merchandise and an incredible French-American getaway in New York City.

The Stars & Stripes shoe will retail for $124.95 and features:
