Get your game on with the right tennis shoes

Tennis, as a sport, has been around since a long time, but in the recent past, there has been a resurgence in the love for the sport and more and more people are choosing to play tennis. While many are playing it for the fun aspect, there are some who see it as an entertaining way to get their regular workout in. In case you see someone in a high-end pair of Asics or Nike tennis shoes, you can be reasonably certain that they are professionals, who take the sport very easily. 

If you are intending to play tennis too, then your first investment needs to be in a good racquet and more importantly, proper tennis shoes. Without the proper footwear, it is not only uncomfortable to play, but there is also the chance of injury. Talk to any regular tennis player and they will tell you about the importance of having proper footwear.

At SportsBunker, you will be able to find a huge array of the finest sports gear and accessories – no matter the sport you play and no matter the accessory that you are looking for, chances are that you will be able to find them all here! 

Picking the correct tennis shoes for women and men made easy

Now, if you are in the market for new tennis shoes, then coming to SportsBunker would be the most sensible thing to do – here you will be able to choose from a truly wide variety. However, before buying shoes, there are several factors that need to be weighed in, including playing style, foot size, foot type and the kind of court you are playing on. By investing in the right pair of shoes, you can improve your game and you can also protect your feet and body from prospective injuries.

Here are the things that you should keep in mind while choosing the right tennis footwear:

  • Playing style – How you play will have a role in how you choose your footwear – in tennis, there are mainly two styles of playing; baseline and serve and volley.
  • In the first style, the players choose to play at the back end of the court and they will need more lateral support and they will also need a durable sole to their shoe.
  • People who play more on the serve and volley style, put more pressure on their toes, which increases their chances of sliding when they are on the back foot. This means that they need shoes that have more padding and cushioning on the toes.
  • Feet type – Each person has different type of feet and for a person to be able to play properly, having the right type of footwear becomes important. Whether you are looking for tennis shoes for men or women, the foot type is important. The main types of feet include:
  • Overpronated soles or pronated soles tend to inwards, which is why you will notice the footwear wearing out on the inside part and near the balls of the feet.
  • Under-pronated or supinated soles turn outwards more, which is why you will see the outside heel seeing more tearing.
  • Ideal or neutral soles will have wearing constantly, all over the shoes.
  • Court style – Most people might not pay too much attention to this, but the type of court you play on will also have a part in making the decision about the footwear you choose. Each type of surface needs a specific type of footwear:
  • For a hard court you will need to keep durability your top priority and will have to have protection on the upper part of the shoe and very strong outsoles.
  • For a clay court, you will need shoes that offer an enhanced grip, which allows them to slide with easy. You will also want to look at lighter shoes, which will improve your speed and flexibility.
  • For a grass court you will need a combination of uppers (you can look for mesh and synthetic) and because grass courts need protection, you will need to look for a specially designed sole.
  • These days, you can also find all court surface shoes, where one shoe will work on all kinds of surfaces.

The many types of men’s and women's tennis shoes 

If you thought that there were only one or two types of tennis shoes, you would be mistaken – there are actually many types of tennis shoes for women and understanding a little bit about them will allow you to make a more informed choice.

  • Athletic and running tennis shoes are designed for running and walking comfortably onto the court.
  • Flat tennis shoes have a special pattern on the sole and these can generally be used on all types of courts.
