The Question Club
I'm looking for an insert for soccer shoes (or a shoe model with this in the design) that works like a gel toe insert for pointe shoes. I've only been able to find ballet shoe accessories in my search, probably because these were where I got the idea for soccer to begin with. http://www.dancex.com/servlet/DXStore?action=models&id=41 has some examples of the type of insert I'm thinking of, where the pad covers all sides of the toes. I get blisters on the top, bottom, and sides, even with properly fitting shoes, and the main reason for these is to ptotect the nail edges, as I get ingrown toenails even when I take perfect care of the nails.|
Does anyone know of something like this designed for soccer shoes, or a shoe with this type of padding built in?
Has anyone used something like this for athletic shoes other than ballet?
As far as soccer goes, I use both feet for everything. I used to be primarily right footed, but I had problems with an ingrown nail and practiced left footed for months until I could afford to have the toe worked on. I ended up studying a different style of play at the same time, so I pass and shoot "properly" off my right foot, and mostly off of my toe with my left. (I tend to pass and dribble right for this reason, and shoot left, although I can do both with either foot. The toe curls better, obviously.)
Does anyone have any soccer shoe model recommendations that would suit both styles of control on shots?
