Volleyball shoes
Volleyball combines some elements of jumping and running, or rather, sprint. Therefore, it is important in it is the ability to strongly push off the floor. The movement of the body at the right speed in the right direction in most cases ensures the correctly coordinated action of the internal muscles and, as a result, the interaction of the foot and the floor. Such physical activity is considered active and “favorable,” because it is controlled by active muscles, but there is also an unfavorable passive load when external forces act on the body during that period of time when its own muscles do not have time to react to the effect. Most often, this latency period (delay time) is approximately 30 milliseconds, but they are often enough to cause injury, especially if the external load was of high intensity.

To prevent such adverse passive loads, the volleyball player must choose the right shoes. Most suitable for playing volleyball shoes with soft soles. Special shock absorbing insoles are also used, they are very effective in preventing injuries, but only one tenth of all volleyball players in the world use them.
