Types of PADEL shoes

Some of you read with surprise that there is more than one type of paddle tennis shoe, because to be purists yes, although two currently prevail, there were three types. Nowadays it is usual to find padel courts with artificial grass so that the main types are two:

Paddle shoe with OMNI sole. This type of sole is the one that has always been used in tennis for natural grass, as is the case of the prestigious Wimbledon tournament and has subsequently been used for artificial grass. Its main characteristic is that it is made up of small round studs that are responsible for gripping the grass and allowing us to safely start off and slide without problems on demand.

Paddle shoe with CLAY sole. The clay sole also comes from the world of tennis, it is the sole used in clay court shoes, those of you who play paddle tennis know that silica powder (sand) is used in artificial grass to separate the grass fibers and allow the player slides down the track. The behavior of this sand and clay is very similar, which is why the sole with a fine and deep herringbone is ideal, in addition, the compound used supports abrasion with the surface very well.

Sneaker with ALL COURT sole. They are not used because most of the courts are made of artificial grass and although the literal translation is "all surfaces", this sole is indicated for hard courts of cement, asphalt or Green set, since they hold better. The reason they hold better is that from a herringbone pattern to an all court pattern, in the second it will increase the total surface in contact with the ground, favoring the start and movement.
