Many athletes are known for their footwear. Every type of athlete has a special need when it comes to a pair of shoes. Whether it’s basketball, football, track or any other sport; the wrong pair of shoes can make or break the performance of an athlete. Most sports require a lot of footwork and it not only essential to have the right shoe, but the perfect shoe for the athlete to guarantee their best performance.
Just imagine, it’s the state finals and the men's basketball team is starting their championship game. One of the players just bought a new pair of shoes before the finals and it’s his first time lacing them up. The excitement sets, but he realizes the new shoes don’t feel the same. It psyches him out. When it comes to scoring the final three points to take the trophy home, he misses the shot. Many will say his performance will be from nerves, which can be a factor, but he knows it is also from his shoes.
A lot goes into buying THE PERFECT shoe. You have to check the space your foot as in the shoes, the comfort of the insole, how the laces affect how your foot moves in the shoe and the comfort it brings your heel and your toes. Do your research and find someone that is knowledgeable on the brand and type of shoe that you are interested in before purchasing.
Any athlete can agree to the idea of new shoes impacting their performance. Some shoes don’t conform to your foot the same way, the laces are way too tight, and the confidence is no longer there. This is why for many athletes, the sneakers they wear are a critical part of their performance. Being an athlete means a constant competition with the clock and the right shoes can take seconds off of your performance. Athletes are constantly looking for the upper hand and most of the time it’s in the shoes and the clothing they choose to wear.
Whether you are just an average sneakerhead or a professional athlete, we all live in our shoes the same way. We all take the same journey, while making our shoes our own.
