Head has released an update to their high-performing Radical line of shoes. The Head Radical Pro II is an aggressive shoe with styling to match. The plush upper uses foam lining for comfort, while staying well ventilated and supportive with a combination of a mesh and synthetic leather construction. The high tech design only adds to its desirability as it features Head's Vi-Pod shock dampening in the heel, a stiff mid-foot shank to keep you stable, and CXG technology in the forefoot for even more stability and cushioning. The gum rubber outsole will help you keep your footing when making quick cuts on the court and the hook-eyelet system will have you lacing up these puppies in a matter of seconds.

  • Fit: Length fit is true to size with a medium width. Arch support is medium. Slight break-in required.
  • Upper: Synthetic leather, TPU and mesh.
  • Midsole: PU wrapped HEAD CXG Comfort Grid in the forefoot to absorb shock, provide stability and motion control. Vi-Pod technology in the heel eliminated vibration and maximizes forward motion by absorbing the energy of impact and distributing it. HEAD Cooling System for breathability and moisture management. Head Energy Bridge made of lightweight plastic provides torsional stability.
  • Outsole: Gum rubber outsole with a six-month outsole durability guarantee.
  • Weight: 17.4 ounces (size 10.5)
  • Color: Black/Silver

Comments: I need a shoe that gives ideal support. These shoes provide a ton of support. They are comfortable but slightly on the heavy side.

Comments: These shoes look great and seem like they would perform well, but I think the design of the eyelets is poor. The first time I put one of the shoes on, one of the eyelets broke as I was tightening it. The design puts much too strain and leverage on weak plastic lacing eyelets. Fortunately I hadn't used the shoes yet and am returning them for a refund, but I would have been much more upset if this had happened after it was too late to return them.

Comments: I'm very picky about my tennis equipment; darn near obsessive about my shoes! I'm an all- court, mid 30's, 190 lbs male player. I have been a long-time adidas Barricade V wearer and could not wear the Barricade VI because they were too narrow in the forefoot. I primarily play singles and need a stable, comfortable shoe that has enough space to accommodate my ankle braces and Super Feet Inserts. This shoe fit my needs nicely. They break in easily and are very comfortable. They are probably the most stable shoes I have ever worn. The only drawback to this shoe is the weight. I am sacrificing a little speed and mobility for safety and security, but actually these shoes have helped me learn to play more aggressively and move my opponent around; I can't rely on being as fast on defense as with lighter shoes. The durability won't be as good as the Barricade's, but it isn't so bad that the warranty is needed.

Comments: These shoes are very comfortable, fit my feet really well (size 10 UK, long feet, medium width). Nice cushioned, soft upper with great padded tongue which means you can tie laces tight if necessary. Extra lace hole for those of us with thinner ankles. They remind me of the Barricade V's but with the comfort of the CB 2.3's with a bit more room in the toe box. I'm an all court/serve and vollyer and like a sturdy shoe and stability wise these are right up there with the best. Not worn Head before but they are top of my list now.

Comments: This is a really great shoes for performance tennis players. It has very good lateral support and is super comfortable. I am always ready to sprint in this shoe. Lastly, it looks very nice.

Comments: I've had these shoes for about one month. I really like them a lot, best tennis shoe I've owned so far. They're comfortable and have really good grip and cushioning. I'm a size 10, ordered a size 10, and they fit perfectly - my foots a little wider (too wide for Barricades) but these are great. Lastly, they look amazing, everyone just stares at my feet.

Comments: I've worn the Prestige Pro shoes for a while and once the Speed Pro. I'm a big fan of Head shoes. They are the most comfortable out of the box I've worn. These Radical Pro shoes are no different. The shell has a little softer feeling than the other two Head shoes, this contributes to great comfort but also the need to snug up the laces a little after the shoes have stretched a bit. Sole is the same as the other Head shoes so I love the traction and cushion but I also know I'll burn through it in about 4 months of 4-5 times a week playing.

Comments: New shoes are great! I don't know if it's cause there new but, they never seemed to lose grip in the courts. I would normally have to get a wet towel to keep shoes sticky but, these were great. I would highly recommend these shoes.
