HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR ADULT TENNIS SHOES?

Do you tend to play occasionally, regularly or intensively? Do you have a specific court surface that you tend to play on? Do you need comfort, cushioning or both? How to make a good selection when choosing tennis shoes - here are the answers to all of your questions!

OUR RACKET SPORTS BRAND

As a racket sports brand we have plenty of advice to help you with your game.

Your choice of tennis shoes will be made on several criteria: your playing level, the different types of court surfaces but also the technical features of the products.

PLAYING LEVEL

Artengo offers three types of shoes depending on your playing level.

FOR OCCASIONAL USE

If you make it out to play on a less regular basis, go for comfortable shoes such as the 700 Series ones.

FOR REGULAR USE

If your playing frequency is average, you should look for better cushioning in order to protect your joints. For enhanced cushioning, go for the 800 Series!

FOR INTENSIVE USE

Designed for highly intense sessions, go for the 900 Series if you are looking for optimal comfort coupled with good durability.

THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COURT SURFACES

Your choice of shoes will also be made on the type of court surface on which you play. The difference will lie primarily in the sole.

- Choose a pair with good grip (chevron design on the sole) if you play on clay.

- For hard courts go for high durability.

- Finally, if you are only just taking up tennis, don't hesitate to head for the "all-surface" shoes, which will allow you to discover tennis in complete confidence.

COMFORT

Comfort is an undeniable asset for tennis players. The level of comfort will depend on the shape of what is referred to as the "upper" of the shoe. The insole and the cushioning at the sole also play an important role when it comes to the comfort of the shoe. Comfort is one of the most

researched factors at the Decathlon Research and Development Centre.

CUSHIONING

Cushioning is essential for all tennis players, regardless of their level. Tennis is a sport in which heavy contact with the court surface can quickly begin to cause joint pain. So it goes without saying that you should try to choose a pair of shoes that are well cushioned, with a view to preventing potential injuries.

It you want to get the most out of your shoes, be sure to purchase the right size, as a shoe that is too small it may be very painful when stopping abruptly, for example. In contrast, a shoe that is too big will not provide you with sufficient support during sideways movements.
