Maria Your Questions About Shoes For Women Over 50

Maria asks…

Inexpensive & comfortable pairs of women’s shoes that you recommend?

Does anyone recommend a brand of shoes that are inexpensive and COMFORTABLE! I just moved to a new place and I do a lot of walking, constantly. I walk a few miles a day and desperately need new shoes. I looked at Tom’s but they are very expensive…
Anything but crocs.

Betty asks…

What is a good pair of tennis shoes for women?

I have running shoes, but I’m not sure that they should be used for tennis. I don’t regularly play tennis, but I’d like to start practicing. What is a good starter pair to get for under $50?

Skimp on clothing, skimp on rackets [especially if you're a beginner], buy a cheap duffle bag rather than an expensive name-brand bag from a sporting goods company, play on free public courts if you need to, regardless of they’re not being pristine and new, but do NOT skimp on your tennis shoes!

Do NOT use running shoes to play tennis, unless you enjoy spraining your ankle or tearing up some tendons or ligaments in your ankle & foot. Tennis shoes are built for stability, durability, comfort etc and overall protection of your feet. On American hard courts, this is particularly important.

If you have oddball width feet, as I do, I recommend New Balance. They seem to be the only shoemaker of athletic shoes or tennis shoes that are offered in widths. If you have D width feet [normal], then you can buy from any manufacturer you like.

Expect to pay around 100 to 150 dollars a pair. It’s a bit much, but you *must* take care of your feet.

Get half a dozen pairs of *thick* socks to increase the protection, and use foot powder every time you go out to hit the ball.

The only thing I would also be willing to pay serious money for is good teaching and coaching. Don’t just take lessons from the cheapest guy in town. If you are looking for a teacher, here are links to three American-based tennis-teaching organizations:

http://www.uspta.com/

http://www.ptrtennis.org/

http://www.oscarwegner.com/lucile/MTMCA/Welcome.html

If you live in the USA, you should be able to find an instructor near you in one of the three web sites above.

It takes time, measure in years, to become a strong player, but you can learn a lot in your first few months. Try to get out to hit the ball 5 or 6 days a week. You needn’t hit all day long; that would be a mistake. An hour or two, several days a week, will get you on the right track.

Best of luck, hope you have a little fun along the way icon smile Your Questions About Shoes For Women Over 50
