Think About Getting the Right Tennis Shoes
Springtime is near and temperatures are starting to warm. That means time to hit the courts for tennis lovers. Today we will talk about the best tennis shoes available for support, traction and injury prevention. Too many amateur tennis players just hop on the court and start playing with little thought to the proper tennis shoes. Playing in the wrong shoes or in old tennis shoes can not just lead to poor play it can also lead to injury.
You should not wear running shoes, walking shoes, or cross-trainers when playing tennis. None of these shoes offer the correct support for your feet and ankles as well as the traction needed to get around the tennis court successfully.
When choosing your tennis shoes make sure to take into account what type of surface you play on. If you play on hard courts make sure to choose tennis shoes that are strong and durable. Try to get tennis shoes with extra protection on the inside of the toes as we tend to drag that part of the shoe when serving. If you tend to play on soft surfaces or clay, choose a tennis shoe that gives good traction and is comfortable. Durability is not as important as the soft courts tend to not wear on the shoes as quickly.
Make sure you get comfortable shoes with lots of padding. Blisters are a constant problem for tennis players. Also, don't get your tennis shoes too tight. Have some space between your toes and the end of the tennis shoe.
