Babolat Junior Tennis Shoes Are On Top Of Their Game
Founded in Lyon, France in 1875, Babolat is the oldest company specializing in professional racquet sports equipment and gear, including Babolat junior tennis shoes.
Babolat junior tennis shoes are designed to favor the specific movements of junior players. Tennis players make constant sideways and diagonal movements, with most of the pressure being in the forefoot. Babolat tennis shoes guarantee supreme foot support and durability for junior and adult players alike.
Junior players require ultimate support of their feet, both on and off the court. When selecting Babolat junior tennis shoes, there are two main factors to consider to enhance court movement, safety, and maximize a player's performance: playing style and foot type.
Different styles of play call for different types of movements. To ensure foot safety, choose a tennis shoe based on a junior's style of play.
A baseline player plays along the back line of the court, requiring constant sideways motion. Select a shoe with strong lateral support.
A serve-and-volley player frequently charges the net, which slides their back foot back and forth. Select tennis shoes with arch support, durable toecap, and reinforced toe.
There are three basic foot types: overpronator, neutral, and underpronator. To determine a junior's foot type, perform a wet test: have the junior get his or her foot wet and step on a solid surface, such as concrete. The imprints will determine the type of foot they have.
Feet are overpronated if a complete impression of the foot can be seen. Overpronators tend to roll their foot inward during play. Select a shoe that offers great stability with little flexibility.
Feet are neutral if a moderate space is visible in the arch area. Select a shoe that provides both stability and flexibility.
Feet are underpronated if there's an open area on the imprint where the arch of the foot didn't touch the ground. Underpronators tend to roll their foot outward during play. Select a shoe that offers great flexibility for sharp, lateral movements.
