How to Pick Out Baseball and Softball Shoes

Your shoes should protect your feet and provide you with support, especially sport shoes. When purchasing baseball or softball shoes, make sure that there is no more than a half inch of space between the big toe and the front of the shoe. Arch pain is a common complaint among baseball and softball players, especially catchers. Only purchase shoes that offer arch support, and consider custom shoe inserts known as orthotics.*

It’s common for baseball and softball players to experience sprains, stress fractures and tendinitis, making supportive shoes that much more important. To avoid heel pain, try multi-cleats for children ages 11-15 and avoid metal baseball spikes for players under the age of 13.
