Wearing inappropriate shoes while playing sports can increase your risk for injury. Follow our tips to select the best sports shoes.
- See a podiatrist to learn about the anatomy of your feet. Understanding the size, shape and arch structure of your feet can help you choose the right shoes every time.
- Shop for shoes in the evening to ensure you buy a big enough size, since your feet are larger at night than in the morning.
- Make sure your shoes feel comfortable from the moment you put them on, rather than assuming they need to be broken in.
- Choose footwear designed for your personal athletic activities, such as tennis, cross-training or running shoes.
The shoes you wear for sports can greatly affect the quality of your performance, health, and feet.
