New Shoes for Summer?

High school age players should look at the condition of the basketball shoes they used during the past winter season. In most cases, they should seriously consider getting new basketball shoes to use for the off-season, especially during summer camps, leagues, and tourneys.

While a shoe may still look good, the problem is the support has probably broken down with four months of regular use. In the past, we find too often players starting up for the summer begin to experience issues with their feet and legs, which often are attributed to wearing shoes which lack support.

While none of us want to spend more money, a person can go to Eastbay or local stores and find a reasonably priced shoe to wear for the summer. The player may want to get the latest and the most expensive shoe- that most certainly is not necessary.

Another concern as players go into the summer, is whether they bring feet or leg issues from their spring sport activity. It is not unusual to have girls who ran track in the spring come into summer basketball with shin splints. We have found an effective way to avoid feet/leg problems or overcome feet/leg problems is for the athlete to get an arch support to put into their basketball shoe. In local stores, you can get Dr. Scholl's arch supports which seem to have helped many of our athletes deal with leg/feet problems.
