When choosing Sports shoes, you should search for:
When you have a pair of shoes with great grip is so important when playing any sports. Grip will stop you from slipping over and injuring yourself and allow you to move fast with confidence. You will be moving forwards and backwards and side to side, so look for badminton shoes that offer 360 degree grip.
A thin (but hard wearing) sole
Ideally you should be looking for neutral shoes with a relatively thin sole which keeps you stable and low to the ground.
Cushioning in you shoes will make the foot reduce the chance of injuries and strain when landing from high jumps.
Your sport shoes should not slow you down. Anything more than 300 grams will really start to feel like a drag towards the end of a long match.
An intense, fast-moving game like sports shoes generates a lot of heat – choose shoes made from breathable materials.
