    In the article, The Comprehensive Guide to Fencing Shoes, by Craig Harkins, originally posted on November 2, 2016 but updated for the 2018-19 season, has 3 links to Amazon for the Adidas Stabil shoes (the Boost, Stabil 12 and Stabil 13). Amazon does not have any of these shoes available, as of the date of this post, and don't know when or if they will get more. They have nothing that is specifically fencing but they do have other brands marketed for volleyball and badminton.

    Also, the Amazon link for the hard plastic heel cup that's recommended as an ad-on for shoes that don't have one, is a link to Tuli's Heavy Duty Gel Heel Cup. It sells for $16. The article doesn't recommended gel because it grips the socks and can actually raise the heel up too high.

    Is there a hard plastic cup that is recommended or are they pretty much the same?

    As for the Adidas Stabil, are there stores that sell them or do they have to be purchased online?

    We try and update those links regularly, but basically every Stabil is sold through a third party, not Adidas directly. Consequently, their inventory is VERY inconsistent. Thanks for the note though - I'll try and update them again today.
