What effect do basketball shoes have on the player?
Before every basketball season almost every player goes to the store and looks for a new pair of basketball shoes to wear for the year. Some people may spend up to a few hundred dollars on a new pair of basketball shoes. But are these shoes just for looks or can they help improve a basketball players ability on the court. This is a question that is important to me and to all of the other basketball players in the world because it is important to see whether or not if these shoes are really worth it. The first thing that I found out from my research is that having the right basketball shoes can prevent certain injuries to your ankles and feet. Another thing that I found out from researching is that it can make you have more traction and give you a better ability to perform certain moves like a jump stop. The final thing that I found out is that they can also effect your shooting and quickness on the court.
