I have never played Squash but...these are great
on 12 October 2011
Nope never played Squash. But 20 odd years ago after trying many other trainers I found these, I live in them, I go through a pair every 18 months, I buy 3 pairs at a time.
Why ? - because they are the only shoes which stop me turning my ankles over; in my youth, I'd spend 3-6 weeks every year with one or the other of my feet bound up after twisting ankles, and pulled ligaments. Running for a bus, stepping off a kerb. I guess it's the thin super sticky sole on these, somehow they give me feedback that I'm about fall, it's a question of confidence.
The uppers flex and shape to my feet, the laces work very well, they aren't bulky, they're cost effective and thanks be the design remains absolutely the same..
They are very nice when driving cars, again feedback, no extraneous padding so great feel of the pedal, not too wide. Also, great in airports and planes when you're under enough stress, flooring changes, escalators, security checks, feet expanding at altitude.
The other plus is the 'half' sizes, which means I get exactly the right size. I know they are man-made materials, I wear thick 85% cotton white sports socks with them for comfort, it works for me.
It's a truly classic design, don't go changing them Hi-Tec.
