Quality athletic footwear that’s designed for your sport can make a positive difference for your game. It offers the sport-specific support that you need—like cleat spikes for grip in soccer, or high-tops for stable ankles in basketball. When you look for new athletic shoes, make sure they are designed for your activities first. Then seek out specific styles that will fit your feet and meet your needs.
Qualities to look for beyond being sport-specific include support, breathability, and a comfortable fit. You need the shoe to stabilize the arch in particular, but also the heel. It should be made with materials that allow your feet to breathe, to help guard against fungal infections and keep your feet cool. The gear needs to fit well, too—choose shoes that have sufficient room in the toe box area and feel comfortable as soon as you put them on.
