The Artengo STRONG Pro shoes are among the heavy shoes in the "advanced shoe" category. 35 g heavier than the FAST Pro, they provide greater stability and support for players looking for safety.
The outsole is made from ultra-durable RUBLAST rubber. By studying how tennis players move on the court, we were able to create an optimal sole shape to obtain extreme durability.
Forefoot Support and KPU upper
The KPU upper confers optimal support on the court (Forefoot Support technology). The upper is reinforced around the toes and instep for greater durability while sliding and moving around the court.
Heel support piece
A rigid plastic insert at the heel guarantees optimal foot support while playing.
A plastic shank stiffens the sole for maximum front-to-back stability while pushing off.
Lateral CS technology
After several years of R&D by Artengo and the Decathlon SportsLab, the patented Lateral Cushioning System (Lateral CS) guarantees sustained lower impacts from the ground for tennis players.
Biomechanical studies carried out on tennis players' movements revealed that "high impact durability" foam, when placed strategically in the sole, could reduce the force of impact by 13% (compared to the Artengo 2019 TS990).
Thermoformed EVA insole that is durable, lightweight and comfortable.
Flat laces that are easier to tighten and provide better support while playing tennis.
Clay court sole
Sole with specific clay court herringbone pattern for a better grip on this surface.
Tips for storage and maintenance
For hygiene reasons we recommend storing your shoes in a cool, dry place and removing the insoles after use to air them out.
TESTS AND WARRANTY
Before being used on the court, our shoes undergo several tests.
The lab tests validate various aspects such as tearing eyelets, the glueing of the sole, toxicology, abrasion on the sole and upper, resistance to ageing, etc.
Field tests are carried out by our partner testers to evaluate our products in real playing conditions.
