What should you take into account when choosing your tennis or paddle tennis shoes?

Before choosing your ideal tennis or paddle tennis shoe you have to identify what surface you are going to use it on. As you already know, each type of surface needs a type of sole that favors grip and glide, as well as cushioning. Next, we detail what type of sole it is for each surface:

  • CLAY or herringbone soles are the shoes used for clay courts and artificial grass courts for both paddle tennis and tennis.
  • ALL COURT soles, which are mainly used on greenset courts, cement or any other hard material. Occasionally those with a wide herringbone pattern can be used for clay courts. But remember that they are not recommended for clay courts.
  • The OMNI soles, which are soles with small studs and are recommended for tennis on natural grass (used by many players at Wimbledon) and for paddle tennis on artificial grass.

Shoes with the necessary cushioning and grip for running.

Why is choosing the right shoe so important?

A large number of injuries are caused by a poor choice in our shoes, as we detailed the sole is very important, but just as important will be the cushioning and the materials with which it is made. We always recommend the main brands on the market such as Joma, Adidas, Babolat, Wilson, Asics... They are brands with extensive experience in the world of tennis and have transferred their experience to padel shoes as well. The movements in both sports are similar when it comes to stepping and sliding, most of the movements are lateral displacements, although in paddle tennis the toe and braking are more abused.

It is convenient that we verify that the footwear has anti-torsion systems if possible and reinforcements in the heel and equally important is to choose a good cushioning that will be in charge of discharging the energy of our impacts with the ground helping to our muscles and joints, and avoiding a large number of injuries. Obviously, depending on our budget, we can access more technologically advanced shoes or less, but most of the leading brands have products that are more than solvent and that will provide you with a high degree of satisfaction at all prices.< /p>
