When come to the game of table tennis, many people are facing the problem of buying the right shoes; some players may think it is not necessary for them to buy the suitable shoes to play the game. While for some players, they are willing to spend hundreds of dollars on particular rubbers and for perfect paddle, but when come to table tennis shoes, they only spend 50 to 60 bucks for a pair of shoes.
Taking Good Care of Your Health
For this, you should ask yourself: “What is more important, your health or the chances that super wonderful rubber that can offer you a loop drive?”
Let’s face it, if you buy the wrong equipment, you maybe just going to lose a point on a game. But if you get issue from your neck, heels, tendons, and feet, what consequences you going to have? You may lay on your bed or in hospital for 1 or 2 week for treatment and all these happened is because you don’t want to spend money or choose the right table tennis shoes for yourself.
So, now you can choose from either to opt for shoes and your health or a perfect setup for your blade and rubber? The answer is rather obvious, this is going to make a big different.
Thus, by now I am going to discuss with you on the Asics Gel-Hunter 2 shoes. This is the shoes that can offer you with good support and cushioning. Besides, it can also provide you with a lot of jumping, shot, moving and pushing.
This is the shoes that I use it right now. The reason I got them is because of the cushioning you get inside that provides great support. If you wear the shoes, it has a cloth material pad inside the shoes and is pretty comfy to wear it for all day.
Before I make up my mind to buy this table tennis shoes, I actually do a research on internet and I shortlisted down to 2 pair of shoes. I finally choose this Asics Gel-Hunter 2 because it is described as being able to wear to play with table tennis and badminton. So it is perfect combination for me.
Characteristic of The Shoes
Generally, an ideal table tennis shoes should consist of the characteristics of lightweight, comfortable, sufficient cushioning, good grip and with high quality.
For this Asics Gel-Hunter 2, it definitely features with all the above-mentioned characteristics. The color for the shoe is white blue so the version of the shoes makes me feel they are a pair of well-balanced shoes but finishing can be a little bit better. You may observe some stitching flaw on the shoe which is not actually push the surface of the shoe and sew a little bit over. Also there is a little blemish on the inside of the shoe which is not a tear issue which can cause a weakness in the shoe.
More of the concern is on the inside of the shoe, that is a flap of material which is quite firm like and my concern is if I wear the shoe frequently in and out, will the shoes get pull-back completely? Well, I will need some time to figure it out.
Overall, this is a very light shoe and your feet with feel very comfortable when wearing on it. It is very grippy and provides great support for your feet. It is a great table tennis shoes that can offering good dampening and stability. Even the selling price maybe a little high for some people, however, with it lightweight and great grip features, it is just well worth the price that you are paying for. You may need to take some time for the shoes to fit well with your feet. I can foresee everyone can wear the shoes and last with it for a few years before change for another new one.
