Sport-specific shoes can change the way you play. Come into our Healthy Steps store to have your feet professionally measured and shoes fitted. If you play a sport more than twice per week it is best to wear a sports specific shoe. Check out these pointers to find the perfect shoes for basketball, volleyball and tennis.
The appropriate footwear should:
- Have a thick, stiff sole that provides support for impact.
- Have high ankle construction that supports the ankle during quick changes in direction.
- Be lighter, have less midsole support, and contain a sole more responsive to quick starts and stops (for volleyball).
