When the padel began to make a name for itself in France, there were mainly carpets with a lot of sand, and the players, who generally came from tennis, used shoes with soles made for clay, in order to avoid slipping too much. But in recent years, terrains without visible sand have started to become more and more numerous, and brands have started to manufacture shoes specially made for ski slopes. padel.

Today the builders are generally able to offer different types of terrain, and we therefore find in the clubs both slopes with visible sand and without visible sand. The difference is of course in the sliding and support. When the sand is visible, and sometimes present in too large quantities, you need a lot of grip to avoid skidding too much. But when the carpets are free of visible sand, we have much more grip, and in this case we want our shoes to prevent blockages which could cause injuries to our lower limbs. How can we reconcile the two?
