  • Built on a US last for greater comfort.
  • Added cushioning with Vi-Pod and CXG technologies.
  • Outsole: Gum rubber outsole with a six-month outsole durability guarantee.
  • Fit: This shoe has a medium width fit and standard length.
  • Weight: 17.5 ounces (size 10.5)

Comments: UPDATE: Head actually sent a replacement for my first shoe, but 3 weeks later, the air bubble on the bottom actually cracks a 5mm gap. Sending it back again. I am worried that after 6 months from my purchase date, these shoes are going to be worthless. Either I am having terrible luck so far (I am hoping) or these shoes are the worst shoes ever. For an extremely heavy shoe, I expected better durability.

Comments: I played with these shoes for about These shoes are 3 times a week for 2 months. I judge a shoe for its arch and torsional and ankle support. First off, it has amazing ankle support, much like good mid-top basketball shoes. It also had great arch and torsional support at first. However, after playing with it for 2 months, torsional support (shoe twist test) has gone down at least 50%, and as for arch support, I pretty much can fold my shoe in half. In my opinion, the thin plasticky (energy bridge technology) at the arch is completely worthless, and I am pretty sure, if i am not mistaken, that shoes are not supposed to lose support that fast and bend that way. For 35 bucks, I could just pick up another, but these were 100 dollar shoes. The head warranty only warranties against wearing through the gum sole.

Comments: You do need a specific shoe for racquetball if your seriously playing. This shoe makes a big difference with lateral movement on the court. And when your wear it it gives you a very solid feel of the court. And dont wear them off-court. The only negative, is that the shoe tends to wear out quickly on the grey outer edges of the sole.
