Summer Sports & The Shoes That Go With Them

For active participants engaging in sports on a regular basis proper shoes are essential when it comes to avoiding injuries and to remain competitive. We collected some recommendations to help you reach your full potential.

Basketball

Unlike some sports, where there may be a sprint from one base to another or walking from one green to the next, basketball is a constant motion with lateral movements. Ankle injuries are common, but the right equipment will minimize risks…

Recommendations:

– shoes with solid support throughout the whole shoe

– lightweight, but well-built

– mid-range ankle height

Soccer

Soccer is a sport with several different game positions. Professionals even use different styles of shoes depending on these positions and respective playing styles.

Recommendations:

From a safety perspective, make sure to have proper traction and a good fit, because you’ll be spending a ton of time running. There are many different kinds of soccer cleats.

Biking

Biking shoes aren’t something that can just be “window-shopped.” They are made with pedal compatibility in mind and matching the shoe’s “cleat system” with the pedals is recommended.

Recommendation:

Don’t hesitate to talk to a sales representative at a local store about which shoes fit best to your bike. With biking shoes being a niche market, we recommend checking out this website to touch up on all the information you need to know when in the market for a new pair: https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/cycling-shoes.html
