Badminton shoes are an important part of an athlete’s outfit. Not only success in the game due to convenience and the possibility of increasing the speed of movement, but also the health of the player directly depends on the quality of badminton sneakers. Designed specifically for badminton by leading manufacturers, the shoe delivers two of the most important features of badminton equipment – side-load stability and maximum outsole traction.
Badminton is a sport where players jump a lot, make a lot of sharp, reactive movements, so the task of good badminton sneakers is to protect the foot of a badminton player during lateral movements from the risk of twisting the foot.
Usually sneakers designed specifically for badminton have blunt toes, the shape of the sneaker is similar to the shape of classic sneakers.

It is better to try on badminton sneakers before buying, and in our online store you can easily do this using the service “2 sizes to try on” .
When choosing boxes for badminton, we advise you to pay attention to the following:
1. The weight of the shoes
Modern Badminton sneakers from top manufacturers are usually light, which provides a greater convenience of the game and positively affects the speed of movements, reduces the athlete’s fatigue during training.
If you’re contemplating choosing between two pairs of badminton shoes that you both like and are the same size and fit, we suggest getting the lighter pair.
Professional players can play in more severe sneakers like, for example, players of the Chinese national team (they play in the sneakers of the manufacturer Li-Ning, widely represented in our online store), but this will hardly be convenient for an amateur-in-maker or beginner.
2. Material of the sole
We advise you to choose badminton shoes with soles made of rubber, rubber, synthetic materials. Such materials increase the life of badminton shoes by improving the quality of the outsole.
Another advantage of the synthetic sole is that it does not leave marks on the floor in the gym. In many gyms, it is forbidden to play in sneakers with a black sole or with a sole that can cause persistent soiling.
3. Pad width
The quality of the last is always one of the determining factors that ensure the comfort of any shoe, and even more so – sports shoes. Designed and built specifically for badminton, the last of the shoe provides maximum lateral ankle support. This is necessary to protect the athlete’s ankle from the risk of turning up during lunges and reactive changes in the trajectory of movement. The last of a badminton shoe protects the player’s feet in all directions, not just in the forward direction of movement from heel to toe (like volleyball, running or fitness shoes).
In order for the sneakers to be able to fulfill their function of protecting your feet 100%, we advise you to pay close attention to the width of the last as well. Before buying, we advise you to lace up each sneaker on your feet and walk: sneakers should fit the feet snugly enough. Some manufacturers (for example, Yonex) produce different series of sneakers – for a wider / narrower foot. Before trying on, consult with our managers which of the models are right for you, taking into account the width of the last, and after trying on, choose the pair that will not “dangle” on your leg. In our online store, you can try on sneakers before buying in order to evaluate the comfort of the last.
Sometimes the temptation to save and purchase sneakers of an unknown manufacturer is great. But a completely natural and understandable human desire to save part of the finances can provide a bad service when choosing “No Name” sneakers. As we said earlier, good Badminton sneakers are designed to protect the athlete’s legs from injury and provide maximum convenience in the game. The high price of sneakers from top manufacturers (in comparison with the price of No Name sneakers) is achieved due to the latest innovative technologies and equipment used in the processing and production of sneakers.
We also advise you when buying sneakers to be sure that you have an original product, and not a clever fake of cheaper materials with a possible violation of production technology. It is clear that such sneakers can cause tangible harm to health or, at least remove the athlete from the training process for several weeks due to injury.
Our online store presents only original Badminton sneakers from leading world manufacturers.
5. The choice of size
When choosing shoes for badmintons, keep in mind that sneakers should not sit freely and should not be burned. When worn, badminton shoes will stretch a little, but not much. Therefore, the size of sneakers for badminton must be selected exactly by the leg (see the article “How to choose the size of shoes for playing badminton”).
6. Availability of additional protection
Since badminton sneakers are subjected to the largest load on the side and near the sock due to jumps and lunges, top manufacturers enhance the inner surface of the shoes by adding special rubberized “linings”.
The presence of such additional protection will extend the life of your sneakers and protect the feet during the game.
7. Choosing shoes for children
When choosing badminton sneakers for children, remember that all of the above tips are doubly true. The body of a child or a teenager is not fully formed, and injury can bring a child more harm than an adult athlete.
When choosing sneakers for a child, pay attention to the width of the shoe and the size. Even though the young athlete’s foot grows quickly, we advise you to resist the temptation to buy shoes “for growth” or let your son or daughter train in shoes that are already obviously small. Remember that in the event of an injury, a student will miss not only training, but also classes at school, and this can directly affect the performance of a novice athlete.
When choosing badminton shoes for children, pay attention to the presence of additional foot protection and the weight of the sneakers. The best option would be a model that is not only as light as possible, but also protected by sealing the side surfaces and the toe.
We also advise you to choose natural or high-quality synthetic materials when choosing badminton shoes for children to ensure optimal thermoregulation during training.
Remember that during long wear and intense training, the protective properties of badminton shoes may decrease, so badminton shoes should be changed regularly.
We wish you all your training, games and competitions to be successful and bring you only joy! We will always be happy to advise you and help you purchase badminton shoes for both adults and children.
