Many people use basketball sneakers as a fashion statement, but they are more than that to basketball players. The same basketball shoe that you want because looks cool might not be the right shoe for you. It may not have enough support for your ankle. It might be too stiff to give you the maneuverabily you need. It could be too wide or too narrow, or even too heavy. Every person is different, and different people have different needs in their basketball shoes.
Unfortunately, can take a while to find the right basketball shoe for you. Those Nike basketball shoes that you picked out last year might seem good, but in the long run you might find out that you do better with New Balance shoes. The Converse All-Stars that you’ve been wearing might look cool, but after awhile you might want something with more support. It is all a matter of trial and error, and takes time and patience.
It can be a b embarrassing, but the only way to find out if your basketball shoes are right is to try them out in the store. Rather than taking a ltle walk back and forth like most people take when they buy new shoes, move around a ltle b more. Duck and dodge, weave left and right, and see how the shoes feel. When you jump, how hard do you land? If you have to cut to the side suddenly, do the shoe provide enough traction to do that? Do they pinch your feet, or do they feel good all over? These are some of the questions you have to answer for yourself before you can know if you picked out the right pair of sneakers.
People put so much effort into finding the right basketball apparel, and yet they take their sneakers for granted. Basically any basketball jersey will do as long as fs you, and the kind of shorts you choose don’t really matter. It may sound clich�, but really is all in the shoes. Once you understand your own approach to playing, however, you can probably figure out what footwear works right for you. Just keep your mind on the game and you are sure to come up with an answer in the end. Until then, keep practicing. You never know when your chance will come to make big!
