Wilson has released its Hurakn 2.0 padel shoes, a new version of the first edition that comes loaded with improvements and innovations to offer the player the best sensations on the court.
The American company has understood the direction in which modern padel is heading and has therefore wanted to offer its followers a product in line with the demands of the game. With the speed, the pace of the ball and the physical demands, it is essential to have a shoe that helps to perform any type of movement. In this sport, every millisecond is important and getting the most out of the shoes can be fundamental when it comes to offering an almost immediate response.
Within Wilson they have worked with a series of materials and technologies that help the player to enjoy these Hurakn 2.0. All this with the reliability and confidence that means being under a brand of this category, which usually offers the highest quality to its consumers.
Features of the Wilson Hurakn 2.0
Regardless of all the features that improve on-court performance, you have to start with the basics when it comes to shoes: comfort. The Hurakn 2.0 is very comfortable. And it is not only a question of materials or technologies, but in general, without going into details, it is a shoe that stands out for its comfort both on and off the court.
On that basis, we can start with one of the qualities that makes it stand out in the market: responsiveness. Modern padel is becoming faster and faster, so it is important for players to be quick to get to every ball. This shoe, apart from being comfortable, is also designed for those agile players who want to add that extra bit of speed to their game.
However, it not only focuses on lightness and speed, but it is also very complete in all aspects. While it can stand out for that ease when making changes of direction or changes of pace, do not underestimate its stability and support.
Wilson has also taken sustainability seriously. A very serious issue with which more and more companies are becoming aware when manufacturing their products. Therefore, from the brand they wanted to bet on this trend, looking for their footwear is committed to the planet, but without losing quality at all. The Hurakn 2.0 is a shoe of maximum performance, but also designed to take care of the environment, since the midsole is made from recycled plastic thread.
Technologies and materials used in the shoe
In all areas of this product, we can see how the great work that has been done in the development of the shoe is present. Likewise, the outsole features a proprietary design called Optimum Grip that favors turns and changes of direction thanks to the spiral design. An ideal quality for today’s fast and agile game. In addition, the Duralast material also gives a plus of quality to better withstand abrasion and improve the durability of the product.
In addition, the sole area has a 9 mm drop from the heel to the toe, which apart from comfort, also helps to be always ready to start. It is a very small difference, but it is noticeable, especially in those points that are decided by just a few centimeters.
As for the midsole, we find the Fused 8 Foam material, an EVA that provides great reactivity and responsiveness. Also in keeping with the theme of sustainability, this midsole is made from recycled plastic thread.
In the arch, the Pro Torque Chassis Light technology allows the shoe to reach high speeds without losing stability and security. This is also achieved with the upper, which mixes breathable canvas areas with reinforcements and stitching. This combination seeks to find the perfect balance between stability and lightness.
Finally, an Ortholite insole, which features a die-cut construction that gives the user a feeling of comfort and safety of the highest range. All with the aim of blending performance and comfort on and off the court.
Colors, sizes, price and specific features
The Wilson Hurakn 2.0 is available in several colors thanks to the success of its first edition. For the most classic, in black throughout the upper and midsole, combined with the sole and details in white.

Not forgetting the more adventurous, who can also buy the white version with a multitude of details in black, yellow, orange… Three very elegant models with which to stand out in every game.
