Fundamental factors in choosing handball shoes
The position you play may affect which type of handball shoes you choose. Defenders and attackers have wildly different requirements. However, regardless of the position, there are some basic factors which are important to consider when choosing your handball shoes. These factors are discussed below.
Keep in mind that it often requires more than just a single training session to get used to a new pair of handball shoes. It can be useful to bring your old shoes so that you have the option to change mid-session. This way, you can hopefully avoid sore feet and blisters, and slowly get your feet used to the new handball shoes.
How much space should there be for my feet?
Things can quickly go wrong if your handball shoes are too tight. They can feel right when you try them at first, just going around the shop or your home a couple of times. Problems only occur when you get to your training session or match, and the too tightly-fitting shoes can cause very sore feet. In handball there are many sudden stops and twists, so it is very important that there is plenty of space for your toes. It provides better movement, and your feet have the ability to move around a little. For precisely this reason, you can find unique recommendations on selecting the size for all of our handball shoes.
What is the difference between wide and narrow feet?
Handball shoes are made for both wide and narrow feet, so it is important to find out which category you belong to. As described earlier, your handball shoes shouldn't be too tight, as this increases the risk of twisting your ankle. On the other hand, there shouldn't be too much space around the foot, as this also increases the risk of ankle injury. The optimal shoe should be neither too big nor too tight, helping you stay injury-free. For this very reason, you'll always find guidance and information on the specific fit of each model of handball shoes on hummel.co.uk.
What should the stability in the heel be like?
The stability around the heel is enormously important, as it can help prevent ankle injuries. Injuries to ankle ligaments are no joke, and account for 20% of all sporting injuries in Denmark. It is even worse in handball, where 25% of all injuries stem from ankle problems. By choosing a handball shoe with stable heel support, the ankle can easily follow the rest of the body with sudden stops or twists.
How do I check that the shock absorption fits my feet?
Shock absorption is undoubtedly an important factor when choosing new handball shoes. Without optimal shock absorption, you increase the risk of heel spurs. Heel spurs cause pain and ailments around the heel and/or the arch, and in the worst case can leave you unable to play. It can quickly becoming irritating if it is painful every time you take a step. The shock absorption often depends on your weight, as lighter players don't need to add as much absorption capacity.
