Our second option from Babolat is completely different than our first. Not only do they have a different style and design, the Jet Mach 2 tennis shoes are built for clay courts. While that’s nice, it’s far from the only unique feature unless you consider Kevlar and Michelin-grade rubber common materials.

When you play on clay more often than not, you need a special shoe. Those all-court shoes may work, but they won’t have the same construction and build quality of the Jet Mach 2. Babolat wanted to make sure this shoe was tough, even if it doesn’t look like it. They accomplished this feat through an interesting blend of materials called Matryx.

This material utilizes a blend of Kevlar and Polyamide fibers woven into targeted zones on the shoe. In this case, you’ll get abrasion resistance on the inside and additional protection around the toe. The fabric looks good and still allows your feet to breathe without compromising when it comes to stability.

But isn’t it still mesh?

Technically it is although the blend is strong and there is a Stability Arch system to boot. It consists of four durable fiber straps and compliments the shock absorption setup nicely. An EVA pad called the KPRS-X takes care of impacts from the court and is designed especially for the movements of tennis players.

We’re big fans of this shoe and think you will be as well – they perform as advertised. The only downside is that you’ll need to break them in and they aren’t exactly budget-friendly. We hope you like blue and yellow as well considering it’s the only option available for the clay version of this shoe. The Babolat Jet Mach 2 Clay is available in the usual sizes but only in standard widths.
