Q. Why is it important to get the right netball shoes?
Netball is one of the most physically demanding sports around, requiring movements in all directions, which and creates a lot of stress on the knees, ankles and feet.
Q. What are the key features to look for when selecting netball 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.
