We have a terrific selection of tennis shoes to choose from at PDH Sports. With our range covering shoes worn by the professional players on tour right the way down to players looking for a cheap pair of shoes to get them out playing the game they love.
It is essential to play tennis with the correct footwear. Playing in ordinary trainers and athletic shoes means you will probably not have the correct amount of lateral support you will need to twist and turn at the speeds desired to perform to your full potential.
Also regular footwear will not provide the amount of grip that a pair of tennis trainers will offer, meaning you could be falling over and slipping up a bit without the appropriate equipment. So our advice is do not be tempted to go for footwear that is not designed for tennis.
Tennis Trainers – Buying Tips
Cushioning is a factor you will want to consider when buying your pair of tennis trainers. The shoes are designed to absorb the heavy impact that rapid movement can cause, protecting joints in the legs and hips from excessive force. The Asics range of tennis shoes is particularly good at providing good support and cushioning.
Interestingly the level of shock absorption capacity in men’s tennis shoes and women’s tennis shoes varies greatly, but ultimately good tennis shoes provide good cushioning to minimise lower joint pain.
An important factor for the user to consider when picking a pair of tennis shoes is comfort. It is essential that you find them comfortable to wear. It is also advisable to wear your new pair of tennis shoes around the house for a few hours before playing with them on, this way you can break them in gently without getting blisters and sores from your first game.
Getting the Correct Size Tennis Shoes
Probably the single most important point to consider when buying your new pair of tennis trainers is the size. It is important to note that as we get older our feet have a tendency to alter and spread out, so it is recommended to measure your feet every so often to make sure your size is still appropriate for you.
If you are unsure about your size or you have ordered the wrong size, you can always return your tennis shoes to us as part of our 14 day exchange or returns promise, so you can get the perfect pair even if you can’t try them on before having them delivered.
Finally style is an individual preference you will want to think about; we have traditional styles as well as contemporary styles for the bolder among us!
