Badminton is a fast-paced racquet sport that requires the player to move around in quick direction changes and lateral movements to hit the shuttlecock. Badminton requires proper equipment such as badminton rackets, shuttlecocks, attire, and especially proper footwear. Badminton shoes are differently designed when compared to regular shoes. Badminton shoes have thin soles to lower the center of gravity which reduces the risk of injuries. These sports shoes are specifically designed for footwork and movement for badminton. They are anti-slip and wear-resistant rubber which makes the perfect material for the soles of badminton shoes. They are even shock-absorbent and resilience.
