Points to consider when buying badminton shoes for beginners?
For beginners, it is especially important to wear badminton shoes to avoid injuries. Playing badminton requires a lot of fast movement and the right shoes help support and protect the feet and ankles. Wearing appropriate badminton shoes also allows the player to have a better grip on the court, making the game easier and safer.
As a beginner, there are a number of important factors to consider when buying badminton shoes.
Grip: Badminton requires a lot of fast movements, so good grip is essential. Choose shoes with a non-slip sole and a pattern that ensures sufficient grip on the court.
Shock absorption: Badminton can also cause a lot of impact on the feet, especially if you’re just starting out. Therefore, choose shoes with good cushioning, which reduce the impact on the feet and joints.
Support: While playing badminton you make a lot of sideways and forward movements. Therefore, choose shoes that provide sufficient support for the ankle and foot to prevent injuries.
Weight: The weight of the shoes is also important, as you need to be able to move quickly and agilely while playing. Therefore, choose lightweight shoes that do not hinder your movements.
Fit: Make sure the shoes fit well and are comfortable. You don’t want to be distracted by squeezing shoes or blisters while playing.
Breathability: Badminton is an intensive sport and your feet can sweat a lot during play. Therefore, choose shoes that ventilate well and drain moisture, so that your feet stay dry and you have less chance of blisters.
- Non-Marking soles: It is absolutely not allowed to wear sports shoes that can leave marks/stripes on the court. That is why you should choose badminton shoes with a non-marking sole.
Why are badminton shoes for beginners important?
Badminton shoes are important for both beginners and advanced players as they are specifically designed for the demands of the sport and can help prevent injuries. In most cases, a starting badminton player has to get used to the specific movements associated with the sport. That is why it is wise to purchase the shoes as soon as you have determined for yourself that you like the sport and will continue to practice it for the time being. The intensive stepping out movements, fleeting foot movements and rapid reactions are extremely stressful for your joints and muscles in your back, hips, thighs, knees and ankles. So you want to protect this as well as possible with good badminton shoes. Of course you will find all kinds of badminton shoes for beginners at KW FLEX badminton shop!
