Tennis Shoes and Tech
Alright, there is another very important aspect of playing tennis – protection and comfort of your footwear. The technical features of tennis shoes include soles, which should be designed specifically for playing tennis.
First, tennis shoes’ toe area must be made of a durable material that can resist wear. Both front and rear parts should have a particular pattern to hold the player within the playing court. The sole center arch should be made of sturdy material to prevent twisting, such that when a player pushes off the toe, the rest of the body will follow without twisting the force away. Additionally, the heel with a stiff heel crib adds more stability and support as you swing side-to-side.
Second, tennis shoes with the shock absorption feature are highly recommended. The shock absorbers are small foam balls or air balls, and they are extremely useful in preventing feet injuries while playing. The high-end shoes have these foam balls, but they are relatively more expensive in terms of money. The technology behind shock absorption feature may differ from one manufacturer to the other.
Third, tennis shoes should offer maximum support by connecting the shoe top and the sole. The high-quality shoes have a clear way to tighten the laces. Some models made of plastic material allow attaching laces through the shoe top to cover the foot and the arch area.
Fourth, breathability is very crucial to allow fresh air in. Mesh fabrics are the most recommended, though expensive. Leather can be a good choice even though it does not breath effectively like mesh fabric. Also, ideal tennis shoes’ lining should be able to absorb feet moisture.
Fifth, your tennis shoes must have a simple lacing system. The laces should run through designed loops that are in the direction of the shoe laces. Such lace system is easier to work on.
Lastly, always select tennis shoes that fit comfortably. Remember shoe numbers may not necessarily mean all sizes are similar regardless of the manufacturer. Test before buying, and ensure the heel doesn’t lift off the insoles whenever you swing or jump to avoid blister formation.
