Choosing your basketball shoes
To choose your Basketball shoes, you must first:
- determine your skill level and playing frequency,
- then determine your playing style (on the move or as post),
- finally, correctly choose the height of the upper that will support your ankle (high, mid, or low-rise).
Choosing your shoe size
Choose a shoe size greater than what you would normally wear so that your foot is sure to be comfortable in the shoe.
There should be 1cm between your toe and the tip of the shoe, as your foot tends to swell while exercising. Opt for a basketball sock that prevents blisters thanks to the specific materials strategically placed in areas prone to rubbing.
