Performance

Head's new top of the line shoe has been designed from the ground up to support padel's constant pivoting and changes of direction.

The Heat Motion Pro sole
The Heat Motion Pro sole incorporates ventilation holes for increased breathability

Its unusual sole is dominated by isometric rectangles, formed of three slashes each. It provides medium traction, so it's more suitable for players of Mondo new curled grass courts than sandy courts.

They prioritize stability over flexibility as the sole is made up of a single sheet of rubber.

They feel light on the feet and have decent breathability.

PDH Sports

The first thing I noticed was how comfortable I felt in my movements due to the padel-specific sole. You’re always going in all directions in padel, this shoe’s stability supports you in that.
