Basket ball is a great sport which is not only interesting but is very challenging as well. There are no limitations to one’s physical statistics when it comes to this sport. Whether you are short or tall, have narrow or wide feet – you can play this game and be a star in it too.
Apart from regular practice, you need to use the right gear too, to ensure you get the best out of yourself. So what are the gears you need to focus on when you play this sport on a regular basis?
The ball is of course provided at the court and there is very little for you to select or do. The only other gear that you need to pay attention to other than your outfit is your shoes. The shoes need to be comfortable, so that you don’t suffer any foot sores or pain.
Yes, shoes come in many models and every brand is competing with one another to offer the latest technology and materials. However, one must be conscious of what will suit them and what won’t. When you have broad feet, you cannot wear shoes with a narrow fit, just because they are made with the latest technology or superior materials.
The best basketball shoes for wide feet have to be found by trying out various shoes. Though many companies may advertise their shoes as the best for wide feet, there is no standard width and the fit will vary from brand to brand. More often than not, top brands have different fits to suit different feet, but it is still important to try them on and see how they fit, before you can buy them.
When it is casual shoes, one can “adjust” and wear it for a few minutes, but when it comes to sports, the fit has to be nothing short of perfect, if one does not want to suffer the ill consequences of bad shoes.
