When it comes to tennis, standard running shoes and cross training shoes won’t do.
Foot and ankle injuries are common when players don’t wear the right kind of shoes.
Running shoes, for example, won’t give you the stability and support you need for lateral movements. Instead, look for actual tennis shoes, and prioritize finding the right fit.
Look for shoes that fit snuggly and comfortably so your foot doesn’t slide around or roll to the side. However, check that the shoe isn’t too tight, as you can develop blisters or reduce circulation.
