HOW TO CHOOSE SHOES FOR VOLLEYBALL
When choosing sneakers for volleyball, first of all pay attention to the sole. It is good if it is made of rubber, which provides the best grip on the gym floor. The pattern on the sole should be made in the form of zigzags or small unidirectional strokes. In this case, the legs will not slip on the floor.
To improve cushioning, the sole may contain helium inlays or air cylinders. Please note that volleyball sneakers should be light enough. In such shoes, the legs will not get tired, and the jumps will be faster. It is better to choose sneakers in a mesh with leather inserts, they allow the foot to “breathe” during active movements. Soft ankle pads made of foam rubber should be in the ankle area so that the boot fits tightly on the foot.
The sole in the heel area of volleyball shoes can be slightly thicker than the toe, which is necessary to improve cushioning and enhance the effect when jumping. It is better if the back is stiff so that the leg is clearly fixed in the shoes. Pay attention to the sock. It should not be too narrow so that the leg is not constrained by movements.
Manufacturers of sneakers are constantly striving to bring their shoes to perfection. Mizuno uses various technologies in its sneakers that provide optimal temperature conditions for the feet using ventilation ducts, high wear resistance, and full grip. Asics is not inferior to it with its helium system, which provides protection to the foot and places subject to the greatest impacts.
