Features and Specifications
Jet Mach II is super lightweight and comes at only 11.7 ounces, something that made us get worried about its foot stability at first. Well, let not its lightweight fool you even a bit. Thanks to the Kevlar-polyamide upper used in its construction, this pair will hold your feet securely during playing for a reliable and fast-paced movement.
The level of support offered by the Jet Mach II caught us by surprise. We underrated it, and we regret this severely. Its uppers are made to resist stretching laterally. The pair provides you with a natural feel which comes with the effect of boosting your confidence to sprint and make quick cuts inevitably. The guts of the shoes aren’t rigid or stiff, but rather move with your feet while providing good support.
The Jet Mach II shoes are amongst the lightest tennis pairs in the market, and this comes with the price of sole durability. You don’t expect their sole to be as durable as those of heavy pairs although they will serve you loyally over their lifespan. The performance and durability of the soles are more than you can expect from a pair that is as lightweight and speed-oriented as these.
With time, you will start to notice some signs of wear in the typical areas, but nothing serious. The durability of their sole is slightly lower at par with models like the Adidas Men’s Adizero Ubersonic 3 Tennis Shoe.
We can proudly confirm that the Jet Mach II is amongst the lightest tennis pairs that we came across, coming at only 11.7 ounces. We still aren’t sure how Babolat was able to make this pair this light without compromising on its performance in any way- hats off! This is definitely a subtle art only mastered by the prodigies of the game.
The advantage of having a lightweight pair on your feet is that it makes your movement superb and fluid. There aren’t any complaints here.
The comfort provided by the Jet Mach II isn’t as plush as models like the ASICS Men’s Gel-Resolution 7 Tennis Shoe. However, their responsive on the court is amazing. Minor improvements were made on its uppers to give it a glove-fit that makes your feet remain supple for easy maneuverability. Its high response allows you to make vigorous movements on the court with great ease.
Comfort was a top priority when designing this pair, although not to top-notch levels. There is ample cushioning and padding in the midsole; a major improvement from its predecessor. The same can also be said about its arch support. The paddings play a great role in shock absorption no matter how heavy your landing is.
You can wear this pair for prolonged periods without getting tired. It must not go without saying that you might have little problems when it comes to the ventilation, although this is entirely dependent on individuals. Some users didn’t mind the ventilation and found them to be okay while other people felt their feet being hot after some time and wanted more to be done on the same.
Going for your right size with these shoes will cost you a lot, and we’re sure you don’t want to go through the disappointment. One major con that lies with the Jet Mach II is when it comes to its sizing. They are so inaccurate. We recommend that you go for a half or even full size larger. People who wear size ten can order for sizes 10.5 or 11.
You can also opt to wear socks as this will assist in providing you with a secure and snug fit. On the other hand, we wouldn’t actually recommend this if you’re practising with them, as they can get really hot and sweaty in there. Heads up!
