Women's Indoor Shoes
Indoor sports like squash and racquetball present a unique challenge when it comes to choosing footwear: Not only should the shoes provide comfort and support, but they also have to offer great traction on the floor without leaving any marks. Proper indoor shoes can help you play your best game, so don’t forget to change out your squash shoes, racquetball shoes, or other indoor footwear after 45-60 hours of play or when they become visibly worn, whichever comes first!
Indoor shoes have to meet a variety of needs. Most importantly, they need to keep you comfortable and safe. But they must also support you throughout your entire movement cycle, helping you to play your favorite indoor sport effectively and with proper form. So how do you know if you’ve found the perfect indoor shoes for you? Try ’em on! Wear the socks you plan to wear during gameplay, and be sure to try on both shoes. Your feet should feel secure in the shoes, but your toes should have lots of breathing room. Your feet swell when you exercise, and neglecting to leave a little extra room can yield painful blisters later on. Don’t be afraid to jog around the store a bit to see if the shoes rub, slide, or generally don’t feel “right” on your feet. Do the shoes feel stable and supportive? Are your arches happy? Do the soles provide good traction?
Indoor footwear typically features an outsole that’s a blend of gum rubber and synthetic rubber; you will know a shoe is suitable for indoor use if the sole feels soft to the touch. You want an indoor shoe that is sturdy and stable enough to support you as you dart back and forth across the court. Also: Make sure you never wear your indoor shoes outside, as then you risk tracking dirt and grime onto the court, which makes it slippery and dangerous to play on.
How well do you know your feet? Understanding their shape, size, and unique movement pattern is crucial to fitting them with the right indoor footwear. Before shopping for your next pair of indoor shoes, figure out if you have a low, neutral, or high arch, which will help you determine how much arch support you need. The more you know about your feet, the better prepared you’ll be to keep them happy and healthy with the perfect pair of indoor shoes!
