Performance

Bela’s signature shoes, the Bela Pros have been revamped to be a complete shoe that prioritizes maneuverability and ease of pivoting on the new curled grass courts.

These shoes have a 9mm drop, the incline from heel to toe that ensures you are ready for padel’s rapid movements.

Wilson Bela Pro Shoes Concentric Circle Sole

Their sole is composed of two series of concentric circles around the center of the ball of the foot and the center of the heel. This results in the slightly below average traction that will protect players knees at the risk of potentially more slippage on the court. These are not recommended for sandy courts.
