    I would have hoped that they would have had more ventilation. They make it so my ankles do not hurt after playing. Of course, nothing is like the old FootJoy or Ektelon racquetball shoes but the Python serves the purpose.

    So far so good. They do run a half size small so I was able to use these shoes. They have a nice feel on the court. Feel solid, yet light. Have good support and a nice grip on the court.

    Good support, however the padding for the ball and heal of your foot is very thin, and my feet are sore after playing for an hour or two. I would increase the padding by a minimum of 25%

    Great Court Shoe!
    02/11/2023
    Purchased these shoes on Racquetworld.com before finding this website. These Python's were purchased exclusively for Pickleball. They are comfortable, provide nice foot support, look pretty awesome, and provide excellent traction on indoor wooden flooring. I'm sure they will be suitable for outdoor courts as well. Materials and shoe construction seem to be acceptable but have not had them long enough to see how well they are going to hold up over time. I found the insoles a bit lacking and were changed after wearing them one time; just a bit thin for me; I prefer an insole that has better arch support and better cushioning. Lots to choose from there. With new insoles the Python's feel great! Unless these shoes come apart after a couple of months of wear, I'll have no issues purchasing them again.

    I purchased these shoes over one year ago and use them exclusively indoors to play Pickleball. I love them! They have good traction and offer excellent support. I've received many compliments on how good they look. I am going to order another pair to have in reserve.

    I normally wear a 9 1/2 so after seeing they run small I ordered a 10 and they fit great. I really like these shoes as they are super comfortable. I play several times a week and they only seem to last about 3 to 4 months but I think that's normal for as much as I play. Highly recommend them for the price.

    Python indoor pickleball shoes.

    Verified Buyer
    I bought both indoor and outdoor Python shoes and they are awesome. After rolling my ankle the doctor said I needed something that had more support than my running shoes. These shoes have plenty of support and lots of grip on the court. The literature is correct, they do run 1/2 size small. Another plus is the price.

    Work well on the court.
    08/22/2020
    Verified Buyer
    I typically wear a 11 1/2 and sometimes a 12 and since the recommendation is to go 1/2 size larger, I purchased a size 12. They fit tight on my in-step, but length is fine. I almost returned for a 12 1/2, as they are difficult to get on and off, but since the toe length was fine, kept them. Very pleased with how they work on the court and they are becoming easier to get on and off. Definitely prefer a court shoe that was on the snug side versus being loose. Bottom line - satisfied with the purchase.

    1/2 size small is correct
    04/21/2020
    Verified Buyer
    The shoes fit as PBG states, 1/2 size small. So when ordering, order a 1/2 size larger than you normally do. I would have liked for there to be more cushion as one day of walking around in the shoes my feet felt flat. This requires one star deduction. But for the money, these shoes are a good value. They look pretty decent as well.

    This is my second round buying this shoe. I've owned a pair for over three years. Shoe is solid, light and quick. Great shoe for the price. My feet are size 10 1/2. I bought size 11 three years ago. Fit great. I just ordered a replacement pair (same shoe) size 11 and this time the shoe is too small. Bizarre. So plan accordingly.

    I just purchased this shoe. As others said, fit is a bit snug compared to other brands but I usually wear a 12 and a 12 does fit. I have only played on them for one session about 2 hours long. Mid support is good. I have a tendency to "roll" my ankle over on my right foot...this shoe felt stable and didn't feel like it wanted to roll over. court grip was ok but not as tacky as a true gum sole. for the $$, soo far a good choice

    Python RBall shoe
    05/01/2019
    Verified Buyer
    "I like the Gum sole for traction but unlike my previous shoe, it provides the traction without the typical squeaky noise. As mentioned by many, I had to order 1/2 size larger and it just fits but the shoe is a bit narrow and I typically wear a Med width. Wish it had width sizes but I saw none. If one has wider feet than ""narrow"" I suggest ordering perhaps a full size larger than normal. So far, they play well and traction is excellent."

    This is the second pair of Python R/B shoes that I have bought. They are light weight, look good and play as advertised. Several of my fellow players have asked about the shoes and I can't say enough about them. They let me play like a much younger player, side to side motion is easy direction change and stopping is easy as well. Plus is did not hurt to have Python gloves as a gift did not hurt either.

    Shoes definitely run very small. I normally wear a size 9 and ordered a size 9 1/2. They are very tight, but I can get them on. The shoes grip well and I would recommend them, but do order at least 1 full size larger than you normally wear. The shoes came with 2 free gloves, but I found no way to order anything but size large. I wear a small or medium.

    I would not call this a mid as it not nearly as high as my Ektelon's but it is a good shoe. Gum sole gives good grip on the floor. Be sure to order 1/2 size larger as they run small. I have always worn a 9 1/2 but ordered a 10 and am very pleased. Well worth the money and I got a free glove.

    My previous go-to rball shoe was discontinued, so I decided to give Python a try after reading other's reviews. It's the best value out there, especially with the added glove. As everyone else mentions, size up! I'm usually a 10.5 or 11. I called in and chatted with customer service before ordering. They convinced me to go 11.5 for the first time ever. It's the perfect fit. Shoe is a little stiff, but performs great. Traction was very noticeable improvement from what i had been wearing. I'm going to order another 2 while the price is right.

    Great Fit and Traction

    These Python Deluxe Indoor Mid Pickleball Shoes provided me with a great fit at very reasonable price. I play 3x a week. Comfortable shoe box and mid height provides great ankle support with sharp turns. Gum soles provide excellent traction provided the court floor is well maintained and you dedicate these shoes only for court play, not everyday wear. I use my own Superfeet insoles. Although I was initially skeptical, I bought the additional Court Grabber Kit and I found it provides excellent additional firm traction on dusty court floors whenever needed. The free bonus Python Deluxe Glove makes this deal a real value. Prompt delivery. Thanks PickleballGalaxy!

    I needed new shoes so I went back to there I purchased my previous shoes...PickleballGalaxy. Good price and the free gloves were a plus. The best thing they did, which may not seem like much to some was, they sent a letter with the shoes to put them on and walk around in them for a while before returning them because the may not fit. When I was putting on the shoes the first time I thought, hey these don't fit; when I got them on they were tight and I wasn't happy. Then I remembered what the letter said; I put them on and walked around in them some; then I played in them; and they did seem to loosen up. Thanks for the heads up PickleballGalaxy. The obvious is not always obvious to everyone, so it don't hurt to educate a little.

    Court Grabbers Kit Details

    The Kit includes (2) Clear Base Strips, (2) Black/Black Traction Pads and 2 Ounce Bottle of Traction Gel

    Court Grabbers

    Base Strip - This is a clear piece of durable plastic that you attach to your shoe with the laces. You do this one time and the Base Strip stays in place permanently. The Traction Pad slides onto the Base Strip and locks in place.

    Traction Pad - This is a plastic piece that encases a piece of cloth that allows you to clean your shoes anytime on the court. The Traction Pad slides onto the Base Strip and locks in place. To remove the Traction Pad for cleaning, you simply pinch the tabs on each side and slide the entire Traction Pad off the Base Strip

    Traction Gel - This is the “Magic” that delivers the Best Traction on the Planet! Just a small amount of Traction Gel on the Traction Pad will remove all the dirt and dust off your shoe and provide you with incredible traction.

    The base strips should last for 1 year of heavy use, the traction pads should last for 1 season with proper cleaning after every 2-3 uses. The 2 ounce bottle of traction gel should last for 1-2 months of regular use

    Court Grabbers will work on all shoes with exposed laces. You can adjust how Court Grabbers sit on your shoe by moving them up the laces. Court Grabbers will not work on shoes with mid-instep straps. Straps that are near the top of the shoe should work fine. Court Grabbers work best on shoes with normal, flat soles, found on most court shoes.

    About Court Grabbers

    Lace the base into your shoe, click in the traction pad and add gel.. it is as simple as that.

    Your Court Grabbers allow you to restore High Performance Traction to your shoes where you need it most- on the court, during play, without using your hands! Once you make Court Grabbers part of your everyday equipment, your days of slipping on the court are over.Grip, Squeak & Win with Court Grabbers!

    Dust falls on every indoor pickleball court (gym floor) in the World. It never stops accumulating. That's why athletes have been slipping & sliding on racquetball courts for many decades. Court Grabbers were designed with one "mission" in mind: Allow players to control their traction where and when they need it most - ON THE COURT, DURING PLAY.

    Testing has shown that Court Grabbers are effective, as instructed, on courts made of wood, rubber tile, and composite material, and some tile floors. Use on any other surface, such as tennis surfaces, both indoor and outdoors, should be tested before use in practices or games. Court Grabbers are not to be used on sealed, concrete courts/floors.

    Court Grabbers are designed to work with just a light, smooth pass of one shoe over the opposing Traction Pad. It is not necessary to push down hard on the Traction Pad. With practice you'll find that this can be accomplished very quickly. Some players like to just "touch" the pad to the sole of the shoe. You can choose to clean the entire shoe or just the "ball" of your shoe. The real beauty of Court Grabbers is that each user can find their own method of use that best fits their game!

    Installing Court Grabbers

    About the Gel

    Court Grabbers Traction Gel delivers the World's Best On Court Traction!

    The length of the Traction Pad cloth should be slightly moist, never "wet". Never apply more than 3 light lines of gel. *Do not squeeze the bottle. Apply just enough pressure to allow the Traction Gel to “fall” out of the bottle onto the Traction Pad

    The package comes with one 2oz bottle of gel in a squeeze bottle with a flip top, additional 4 oz bottles can be purchased.

    The 4 ounce bottle will last about 6 months when used 2-3 times per week and about 3 months when used 4-6 times per week, the 2 ounce bottle that comes with the kit should last between 1-2 months with regular use.

    Court Grabbers® Traction Gel is made up of 86% natural ingredients, stuff we eat and drink daily. 13% is alcohol, 1/5th the concentration found in common hand sanitizer. The remaining 1% is comprised of a bittering agent, a gelifier, and common food coloring. Court Grabbers® Traction Gel has no harmful effect on the user, clothing, pets, or shoes and has been certified safe for courts by a 3rd party lab Traction Gel will wash from clothes in a normal wash cycle. Water does not work on the court and is not a safe substitute for the Traction Gel.The ingredients in the gel have no adverse effect on the court, and do not "build up" on the shoe or the court. Any spilled Traction Gel cleans up easily with water and a towel.

    Additional Questions

    How long will Court Grabbers remain effective on the court?

    How long does the gel last? Each user is different. If you use your Court Grabbers® every day, you can expect each ounce of Traction Gel to last 2-3 weeks. (4-6 weeks with the 2oz bottle with the kit) Since you do not need much gel for the system to work, you may find you use even less. A 2-ounce bottle plus a 4-oz bottle should last you at least an entire season of practices and games.

    How much Traction Gel should I use? The key is “less is best”. More Traction Gel does not mean more traction. Allow no more than 3 light lines, top to bottom, to drip onto the Traction Pad. This should provide traction for at least 30 minutes of heavy use. You’ll need to experiment to find the best result for your use. The Traction Pad should never be “wet”, just slightly moist.

    How do I clean the Traction Pad?

    Simply pinch the two tabs in the opening on each side of the Traction Pad and slide the entire Traction Pad off of the Base Strip. It is not uncommon for the tabs to seem “stiff” the first few times you remove the Traction Pad, they will loosen with each removal. Once removed, you can toss them in the washer and dryer with your practice/game gear. We recommend using a small laundry bag, which you can buy on this site, to make locating them among your clothes easier. We recommend cleaning Traction Pads whenever you clean your practice/game gear. Consistent care will keep your Court Grabbers® clean and extend their life indefinitely. If you can see dirt and dust on the Traction Pad, it’s time to clean them!

    How do I use them on multiple pairs of shoes?

    You don’t need to buy a new kit for each pair of shoes. You can buy a set of Base Strips for each pair and easily use the same set of Traction Pads for each pair.

    How long do the Traction Pads last?

    Depending upon how much use and abuse they receive, your Traction Pads should last from 4 months +. They are made from durable plastics and one of the most durable cloths on the planet. The most important thing you can do to make them last and perform properly is to wash them at least every 2-3 uses and certainly before any game or important match. Just wash them with your practice/game gear and dry them in the dryer as well. Fortunately, they are inexpensive to replace, so you can have extra sets on hand so you never slip up on the court. When you see the cloth of the Traction Pad has a hole in it, or the tabs become loose, either of which may happen after many months of continued use, it’s time for a new set of Traction Pads. Base Strips should last a very long time. Replace if the rails that hold the Traction Pad or the securing bands on the underside break or crack. (This is rare) Do not use cracked or broken parts. Keep the grooves of the rails clean and free from any dirt.

    Do they work on all shoes?

    Court Grabbers will work on all shoes with exposed laces. You can adjust how Court Grabbers sit on your shoe by moving them up the laces. Court Grabbers will not work on shoes with mid-instep straps. Straps that are near the top of the shoe should work fine.

    Court Grabbers work best on shoes with normal, flat soles, found on most court shoes.

    Won't my shoes get dirty?

    This is a common misperception people have when they first see our equipment. Your shoes should not get dirty. The Traction Pads sit slightly above your laces. You wipe the sole of your shoe across the top of the Traction Pad, NOT your shoe. It’s pretty easy to get the hang of wiping across the Traction Pad.

    What are the dimensions and how much do they weigh?

    • Court Grabbers are 2.25 inches in length.
    • At the widest point, they are 1.25 inches and taper to .25 inch at the narrow end.
    • The complete unit is very thin. They sit a mere 1/8th of an inch above your laces.
    • Court Grabbers are feather light. 2 Base Strips/Traction Pad units weigh a total of ½ an ounce.
