A few months back I happened to meet one of my high school friend George after quite a few years at a friends party. George had an obsession with tennis and was always highly enthusiastic about the sport. He invited me over to his house for lunch the very next day where we spent some time chatting about the nostalgic high school days. Then we moved to the tennis court he had in the backyard of his house where he gave me some absolutely wonderful tips on playing the game which made me a great fan of the sport. Since then I have been sincerely following the game and all the news(http://sports.yahoo.com/tennis/) related to the sport.
I often visit George to spend some quality time on the court and over the course of time I have realized that I don’t have a proper pair of shoes which can assist me to endure the frequent lateral movements, rigors, short sprints and the quick starts and stops. George suggested me to buy a pair of tennis shoes which will be perfect for the game. He gave me some wonderful tips for purchasing the most perfect and comfortable pair of shoes which will serve well while playing tennis.
Below is a brief synopsis of the tips to keep in mind before you make a purchase:
- Determine your type of foot and your shoe size accurately
- Check for lateral support
- Look for shoes which have good cushioning and shock absorption
- Scrutinize the sole construction and durability
- It is extremely important that you look for durable soles if you are going to play on hard court
I also found some great tips on the web. Some of the most popular brands for tennis are Adidas, Nike, New Balance, Asics and Converse tennis shoes. You can look out for them at your local store or many of the online portals which provide free shipping and various discounts. Please leave your comments and thoughts and if you enjoyed reading this article do share it with your friends and acquaintances.
