Are Your Shoes Made for the Sport You Play?
If you participate in a sport more than three times a week, make sure that the shoes you are wearing are appropriate for that specific sport.
Wear cleats for outside sports like soccer, football, and softball so that you have good traction on the field.
Wear court shoes for sports that are played in a gymnasium like basketball and volleyball so that you don’t slip.
Wear running shoes for sports that cause heavy impact on your feet like running, track and field, and tennis. Make sure your shoes provide plenty of stability, support, and padding.
