Frequently Asked Questions about Ball Hockey Shoes
Our team of ball hockey experts is dedicated to answer all your burning questions about ball hockey shoes.
Common injuries in ball hockey include broken or hurt toes. Shoes like our AK3 model have reinforced toe caps and can provide additional protection against these injuries by shielding your toes from the impact of the ball or other players' equipment.
Absolutely! In fact, we recommend wearing ankle braces, as included with our 501 Shin guards, if you need additional ankle support or have a history of ankle injuries. They can provide stability and help prevent sprains or strains.
High-top ball hockey shoes, like our AK7 interceptor model, offer better ankle support and stability, making them a popular choice among players who desire extra protection. On the other hand, low-top shoes, like our AK5 speed model, are typically lighter and allow for greater mobility and speed, favored by those prioritizing agility on the court.
To prevent blisters, ensure your shoes fit correctly and your socks are always dry. We recommend our Knapper sport socks for their excellent moisture-wicking properties. Blisters often form from friction caused by loose-fitting shoes or wet socks.
Visible signs of wear like thinning or flat spots on the soles, loose stitching, or discomfort while wearing them are indicators your ball hockey shoes might be too worn out. It's essential to replace them in time to prevent discomfort or injury.
While shoes cannot directly improve your performance, they certainly contribute to optimal gameplay, like our AK7 Speed model. Shoes that provide superior comfort, protection, and support can help prevent fatigue and injuries, thus allowing you to perform your best in every game.
The significant difference between rain and regular ball hockey shoes lies in the sole. Rain shoes typically feature a more aggressive tread pattern, like our AK Rain ball hockey shoes, for enhanced grip and traction on wet surfaces. This ensures improved stability and performance during rainy conditions.
When shopping for ball hockey shoes, prioritize features such as durability, grip, comfort, and protection. Ball hockey shoes, like the AK7 Speed, offer durable and breathable mesh, while the sole offers excellent grip for rapid movement on the ball hockey court.
