Improved HEAD footwear gives players an Insane edge in 2011

February 1st, 2011

The same dedication to detail, innovation and technology that goes into producing HEAD racquets and balls is also evident in HEAD’s complete line of tennis footwear. And the 2011 line-up of shoes looks like again setting the pace in both style and performance on court.

HEAD is introducing new models for men, women and juniors to cover the range of possibilities for players. The men's line will be headed by the Insane Pro Men which is also available as Junior version, a new colour fot the Speed Pro Men plus redesigns for the Prestige Pro II Men and the Radical Pro II Men. The highlight product on the women’s side will be the new Speed Pro Women.

The Insane Pro Men highlight shoe comes in a hard-to-miss black/orange or white/black colour combination, with the uppers made of breathable Air Mesh, leather and synthetic leather. Asymmetrical lacing takes pressure from instep and improves fitting while extra large protection on medial side provides perfect protection. The HEAD HeelStab and the Anti Slip material give a perfect fit in heel area.
The shoes are designed with lightweight, quality materials and top technology throughout, guaranteeing comfort and stability, no matter how fast the game. Among the proven HEAD innovations: HEAD Vi-Pod Technology™, HEAD Energy Bridge™, HEAD Lateral Control™, HEAD CXG™ Comfort Grid, HEAD Radial Contact™ outsole, HEAD Cooling System® and HEAD HyBrasion™.

The features work in unison to provide the best grip and support for players intent on lifting their games to the highest possible level. The midsole heel area Vi-Pod™ absorbs the energy of impact and distributes it to the entire foot, eliminating vibration and maximizing forward motion while the Energy Bridge™ provides torsion stability and increased transfer of power from the heel to the forefoot. CXG™ Comfort Grid provides the shock absorption so necessary in today's demanding game, yielding a responsive performance on all playing surfaces while reducing foot fatigue. The Lateral Control™, which is integrated into the outer forefoot area, comprises a squared edge of harder rubber that provides optimum lateral stability and enables quick changes in direction.

Elsewhere in the shoes, Radial Contact™ aids traction, the Cooling System® provides efficient moisture management while HyBrasion™ rubber keeps the soles of HEAD shoes as tough, rugged and efficient as the day they left the factory, giving superior toe drag resistance and long wearing performance on any playing surface.

_ The Prestige Pro II Men and Radical Pro II Men are featuring metal hooks for better lacing and the new HeelStab system for a perfect fit in the heel area.

_ The Speed Pro Women boasts identical breathable Air Mesh uppers with an Air Mesh lining and the high-end outsole system.

All models in the HEAD range are a testament to performance on court for players of all levels. Head’s state-of-the-art footwear technologies offer an ideal blend of stability, comfort and manoeuvrability in all game conditions. HEAD footwear provides the ultimate in performance, comfort and protection.
