What is the best paddle tennis shoe for men?

Choosing our shoes to play paddle tennis is a very important decision, since as we always say at Onlytenis, “health begins with the feet”, and in all sports it is vital importance of wearing the appropriate footwear.

To buy the best shoe, the first thing we must be clear about is what surface we are going to play on, and thus choose the type of sole that best suits our needs.

To take into account to get it right when buying your shoes

The structure of paddle tennis shoes is divided into three:

Sole. The most common surfaces on paddle tennis courts is artificial turf and to a lesser extent we find hard surface, (cement, asphalt and some other material). The sole must adapt to the surface, in the case of grass the omni or clay sole is used, and on hard surfaces “All Court soles”. Choosing the appropriate sole will guarantee that we will slide safely in all our movements and that we will be able to brake on demand, avoiding slips or detraction problems. This is very important in preventing injuries, the most common in the adductors, calf muscles and Achilles heel.

Damping. Of vital importance, it is in charge of managing the energy that is generated in the rebound, favoring the impulse and protecting our joints and back. Improper cushioning will lead to muscle overload in the legs and lower back pain. It is essential to take into account our weight and not neglect this aspect of the shoes. There are several types of cushioning on the market, find the one that works best for you.

Upper part. The most common materials are Mesh, mesh (nylon) with TPU reinforcements and synthetic leather. It is relevant depending on how we use the shoes. The more use we give it per week, the better quality we recommend the upper cover to be, so that the feet have adequate perspiration. It may seem like a purely aesthetic issue, but it is important to make the right decision, so we will avoid excess moisture inside the foot and the appearance of blisters and chafing. Note: Use quality socks.

Recommendations when buying your paddle tennis shoes

Footwear has advanced a lot technologically, and all brands offer advances in their models. As it is logical, in the higher priced models we will find the most advanced ones and in the lower priced ones we will find the necessary ones for the “typical” player of this cheaper shoe.

The most important technologies are applied above all in the midsole and cushioning and as each brand has its own and usually has them registered, we comment on them in general terms so that you can identify them.

One of the most valuable technologies in our opinion is the implementation of anti-torsion systems, which, as the name suggests, are designed to prevent the shoes from deforming in inappropriate and dangerous turns for our feet. . It is usually a rigid or semi-rigid piece.

Another interesting technology is the implantation of heel reinforcement systems in search of providing us with appropriate stability and minimizing certain injuries. They can be rigid pieces or brace systems.

In the case of cushioning, it is essential that we have two factors, which are our weight and our aggressiveness in movements. Damping is the energy manager, as we mentioned before, and it is crucial that it be very efficient both in rebounds and in the supports that we make in movements.

In both the lower-priced shoes and the higher-priced ones, the brands add reinforcements to the toecaps and to the drag zones (inside) of the shoes, in order to lengthen the durability of these and that we slide safely.
