How to choose the right shoes for sports
There is no single type of sporting footwear that is perfect for everyone - which is why choosing the right pair of shoes for your specific needs is essential. Whether you're after comfort, better traction, heel support or more, here are a few tips to ensure you choose the best pair for you:
- Determine what your foot type is: knowing your foot type is vital to choosing the right type of sports footwear for a number of reasons. A simple way of finding this out is called a 'wet test', which involves standing on a paper bag with wet feet for 10 seconds.
An imprint with not much of a curve on the inside of your foot means you have a low arch, whereas a distinct curve with a band connecting your heels and toes means you have a normal arch. If you have a noticeable curve with a thin band connecting your heels and toes, or no band at all, then you have a high arch.
- Choose a type specific to your needs: wearing the wrong type of sports footwear can cause damage to your feet depending on what physical activity you're doing. For example, running in sneakers and not running shoes can result in injuries, such as a sprained ankle due to a lack of shock absorption each time your foot hits the ground.
- Make sure it's the right fit: even though it might sound obvious, how your shoes fit is the most critical factor in choosing the right pair for you. To make sure your feet are comfortably snug, you shouldn't feel any pinching or sliding, and your foot should be centred. To ensure your toes don't get crushed when running, make sure there's a thumb-size gap between your toes and the front of the shoe.
