Your guide to choose the best tennis & racket sports shoes


Before you run off to purchase a closed court shoe, here are some important tips to choose the best one. The two main reasons why you need to choose a good pair of shoes is to maximize the performance during the game and prevent injuries. The latest technology you should be looking for are:

Ergoshape (for stability), Provides comfort and stability at the forefoot area and toes. Flexibility around the toes area is important for effective and organized tennis and badminton footwork. For example when you’re in a ready position, you use your toes to help you spring forward or backward. It helps you move more explosively to the front or back area of the court , your toes help you spring forward or backwards — that’s why a suitable pair of shoes is important.


Power Cushion (acts as a shock absorber), This acts as a shock absorber and enables the wearer to perform quick reverse movements. For example, when you stretch to the front area of the court for example, to perform an underarm badminton clear, your front leg will be supporting your bodyweight. The Power Cushion will then act as a shock absorber (similar to a car break), absorbing the pressure of your bodyweight at the front area. The shock absorber is excellent for helping you maintain body balance. This enables you to quickly move back to the center of the court.


Double Russel Mesh (controls moisture), This provides 8 times better air-exchange compared to normal shoes so that moisture/sweat does not accumulate around your feet. It’s also lightweight and durable. Since the Double Russel Mesh avoids accumulation of sweat inside the shoe, you will feel more comfortable during your game. Besides, you’ll be able to prevent blisters when there’s no moisture inside your shoes.


There are other things to consider when buying racket sports Shoe. The first this is to choose Shoes That Fit, If there’s extra space in your shoes (or your feet can move inside your shoes), the friction between your feet and your shoes will cause blisters. Besides, Provide Room for Your Shoes to ‘Season’, It’s common for sports shoes to eventually loosen a little after wearing it a few times. Therefore if you’re wearing the right size but it feels a little tight, bear with it and do not opt for the next size. It will season. One good way to make sure you’re wearing the right size is to take the sole out and measure it to your foot. The inside sole should have the same size as your foot if it’s the right size.
