Post Boxing Shoes - What a Buyer Should Look For
Boxing Shoes - What a Buyer Should Look For
by: Dave Toub

The most essential thing you want to find when shopping for boxing shoes is comfort. Consider all of the dancing and jumping about that comes along with the boxing sport as well as working out, and you will understand just why it is so important that the shoes you pick won�t hurt your feet. They also need to contain adequate padding and not be too rigid. Everyone has different needs personally as far as what their feet require, so be sure to do some research and use your own instincts. Other requirements are safety, traction, and ventilation.

Boxing shoes should be checked for support straps and shock absorption. This is a very important part of your safety check. Look for a mid-sole that acts as a shock absorber as many shoes will have them. These prevent your joints from being shocked as well as adding more comfort. Some of the better shoes will have support straps located on the arch. The straps supply more cushion while reducing slippage.

Be sure to find boxing shoes that have plenty of ventilation for your feet. These usually come in the form of little mesh windows surrounding each shoe and allow your feet to breathe properly during a workout or boxing session. If you have wet shoes after working out, this tells you that your feet are suffocating. It is important that your shoes have proper cooling.

Another choice you will be faced with is whether you want your shoes to be high or low top. It really is not that important unless you are a kick boxer. A kick boxer will need to select shoes with high tops so the ankles and shins are protected.

Last, but not least, be sure that the traction is sufficient. This is very important considering all the moves executed while wearing boxing shoes. You need shoes that have rubber soles and an anti-slip pattern on them. You are guaranteed not to sleep while working out or boxing.
