JUNIOR PADEL SHOES
In most sports, the use of an appropriate shoe is vital to be able to perform the sport correctly and to avoid injuries, in the case of junior shoes it is even more important, since young players are in the process of of growth and the use of inappropriate footwear can lead to much more serious problems.
The main brands in the sector take great care in developing the shoes for these players, taking into account their singularities, due to their youth, they are in the learning phase of the sport, this implies that they do not control movements well, they are very active, and they need more rigid compounds in their soles, quality cushioning and reinforcements in areas where statistically greater wear occurs.
How to choose the junior padel shoe?
One of the main things to take into account is the correct choice of size, this seems obvious, but we must bear in mind that paddle tennis is a sport of lateral movements and slides, which is why which is why it should never be just when it comes to the length of the foot, one of the most effective ways to measure it is to push the foot towards the toe and have a toe fit through the back of the shoe.
With this we achieve two things, on the one hand, to avoid that when sliding the fingers they are impacting with the front of the shoe, this can cause injuries to the nails and in the long run produces deformations in the fingers. And, on the other hand, to extend the use of the shoe a little more, children grow from one day to the next.
It is important that we choose shoes that have good breathability, specialized brands already take this into account, it is important that excess moisture does not accumulate inside the shoe and thus avoid possible blisters and wounds, for this it is also important to use cotton socks and that there are no creases.
The cushioning is an element to which we must pay attention, avoiding brands that are not tennis or paddle tennis. The main brands use top quality materials and include technologies used in adult shoes such as anti-torsion elements and stabilizers adapted to the characteristics of children, and in order to prevent injuries and sprains.
One of the main doubts that our customers have is the sole of these shoes, in the shoes of size less than 36, we will find shoes with mixed soles, the reason is that children who use these smaller sizes are lighter and an excessive grip on the surface can even be negative.
Above size 36 we already find the Clay sole, which is the recommended sole on artificial grass and on clay in tennis. The pattern of this outsole is a deep, serrated herringbone that provides the player with appropriate traction and the ability to slide and break in their movements.
