Product Description

The Drive V series has all of the same performance features as the Striker Pro V Series offering a new upper pattern and some new colour offerings. The Drive V series is also designed for the serious player who demands durable on court performance. The wide toe box and sculpted heel design ensures a comfortable stable fitting shoe. The phylon midsole and Vibram outsole materials are designed for outdoor playing surfaces. The medial side Power Clip and exterior heel counter adds stability and support.



  • High-Durability Vibram® Outsole. Vibram® is the world leader in rubber outsole manufacturing and Tyrol collaborated with them on the outsole design. They have formulated an X Abrade compound specific to use on painted silica grit treated pickleball courts to ensure performance grip, stability, and durability.
  • Lightweight Material. The removable insole is EVA base with Nylex top. EVA is a lightweight cushioning material. The insole has holes in the arch area to allow for breathability and flow-through ventilation.
  • Heel Stabilizer. The heel stabilizer is designed to give lateral stability to the player. Tyrol uses a sculpted last during the construction of these shoes that creates a curved heel. This curved heel sets your foot snuggly into the back of the shoe and provides correct alignment to prevent an ankle rollover.
  • Complete Aeration System. Tyrol designed a flow-through cooling system thats allows air movement and ventilation through the insole, midsole and outsole of the shoe.
  • Torsion Control Shank. Tyrol built a torsion control shank to provide lateral stability and support to prevent rolling an ankle in the quick side to side movement of pickleball.
  • Generously Wide Toe Box . The kinetic movement in pickleball is a start and stop forward action sport with quick lateral short step movement. For this reason, Tyrol used a wide toe box both in width and height to prevent toe injury that is prevalent in the sport.
  • Breathability.  Open weave mesh nylon upper and aerated insole and midsole offer excellent flow through ventilation.
  • Comfort.  Tyrol's EVA Midsole material compound and removable insole provide the perfect blend of comfort and performance.
  • Stability. The EVA midsole works with TPU shank to provide a stable playing platform and prevents ankle roll over.
  • Support. Vibram Chevron tread design outsole provides directional traction for quick movement on the court. The rear contoured exterior heel counter adds excellent support.


  • Arch Support - Insole/footbed is made removable and the standard insole is soft and not pronounced in the arch area.
