It is vital that you get a specific shoe if you or a loved one is playing netball. Net ball has the highest rate of injury of any sport in Australia. People underestimate how demanding it is to stop within 1 step particularly if you’re running flat out. So follow these steps when buying a shoe for netball.

Netball shoes what to look for :

A firm heel counter – will give the ankle and the foot more support and stabilize landing.

Shouldn’t twist through the middle of the shoe The shoe should naturally bend at the toe Get a surface on the outsole that won’t slip – shoe needs to be sports specific. This year Asics have taken this one step further and released their models specific to the position you play make sure you read one and check out what you should be wearing for your position.
