Types of tennis shoes

If you were to ask us, what do I buy first, sneakers or a tennis racket? – The answer would be, first some good shoes, and as we all should know, “health begins with the feet”.

In tennis, shoes are classified according to the surface on which we are going to play and we are going to make a good classification and help you choose yours with criteria:

Clay court, the shoes used to play on clay courts are those that include the word "CLAY". The drawing of these shoes is a fine and deep toothed spike (not to be confused with thicker spikes and with a curved pattern). The mission of this toothed and deep spike is going to be to facilitate sliding on demand and traction on clay, something like car tires do with road water, it facilitates evacuation and prevents us from slipping if we accumulate a lot of earth under our sole. They can be used sporadically on hard courts, if we use them in excess the sole will wear out very prematurely.

Green Set surfaces or cement (hard court), shoes called ALL COURT are used for this type of surface , this name causes many misconceptions among users due to its literal translation "ALL SURFACES". These shoes are made with a rubber compound that is more resistant to abrasion and the pattern it presents is a pattern carved with circular lines, elongated flat studs or wide spikes and curved pattern, depending on the brand we will find a pattern on the sole or other. A great variety of them have pivot points to facilitate turns on the supports since on the hard court there is no element such as brick dust that facilitates sliding. The most heard question is can I use it for clay courts? – The answer is “occasionally yes” but you know that they will not start well and you will slide excessively, being very risky because it can cause injuries.

Natural grass surface. The sole that has always been used on natural grass is the omni sole, this sole is made up of many small round studs, which are responsible for gripping the grass and the land on which it is planted.

In this section we make a point differentiating the ARTIFICIAL GRASS, for this surface the CLAY sole is recommended, since the artificial turf is not planted on the ground and settles with silica dust between its filaments to facilitate the slipping also lacking of natural moisture, this silica behaves like clay for dynamic purposes.
