Q. Why is it important to get the right basketball shoes?
Basketball demands a lot from your feet, ankles and knees, which is why it’s important to choose a basketball shoe that’s right for you with plenty of cushioning, support and grip.
Q. What are the key features to look for when selecting basketball shoes?
• Cushioning for comfort against impact (i.e. running and jumping)
• Ankle support as well as mid-foot and heel stability to keep the shoe and foot rigid to help avoid injury
• Outsole grip for greater court traction and durability.
