What makes this a pickleball shoe? The kinetic movement in pickleball has more start and stop movement than the running motion in tennis. There is more sudden jamming of the toes in the quick movement at the kitchen line in pickleball. For this reason, we have made a shoe that locks in your heel with a sculpted fit, and we have used a wide toe box both in width and height to minimize toe injury. We also focused on building a solid playing platform of midsole construction that assists in preventing rollover by giving stabile torsion control and support. Combined with anti-fatigue materials such as a phylon midsole allows for more extended periods of play on the court.
