Insoles for Tennis Players: Avoid Overuse Injuries

by Cassia Roth

Insoles For Tennis

On the court, your footwear is critical. Surefootedness and agility are vital in body positioning and response time. Make sure your footwear enhances your ability to be in the right place at the right time. Find out how the best insoles for tennis shoes can improve your game, while decreasing the possibility of injury. Support your arches and crush your opponent.

Take Care of Your Feet and They Will Take Care of You

On the court, you put a lot of stress on your feet. Tennis requires instant changes in direction, frequent acceleration, and abrupt stops. Your feet and ankles are heavily weighted, usually in a rotated position. Rapid stops can force your toes into the front of your shoes. Select shoes that fit well – snug but with enough room so your toes do not bump the front of the shoe. Wear polyester or wool socks that provide moisture management. Find orthotics for tennis shoes that will minimize the stress and impact on your feet. You need to concentrate on your game, not on your feet.

How Tennis Shoe Insoles Help Players Compete

Increasing the contact area between the bottom of your foot and the shoe through the use of tennis shoe insoles helps in a number of ways:

  • Proprioception (the sense of how your body is positioned) is increased. Heightened awareness translates to faster response and a higher level of play.
  • Pronation control prevents your arches from flattening. Avoid the risk of Plantar Fasciitis and other foot ailments by supporting your arches.
  • A more stable foot moves less inside your shoe. Blisters are minimized. Your feet stay cooler and more comfortable.
  • Deep heel cups stabilize the rear foot and concentrate the fatty pad beneath your heel for additional cushioning.
