The ASICS Professional FF Netball TrainersOn the left below is Manchester Thunder centre and Northern Ireland captain Caroline O'Hanlon who wears the ASICS Professional FF."I love these new ASICS Pro FF trainers! They look great and feel great. These are the first trainers Ive worn with the comfort of a running shoe and security of netball trainer. The grip allows confidence to push off and change direction quickly. Like most netballers, Ive had a number of lower limb injuries over the years, but this shoe provides structure and stability without feeling bulky. Love them!"
What our office manager, Kerry Almond has to say...On the right above is Manchester Thunder's dynamic defender (and Netball UK's office manager) Kerry Almond.The Sky Sports player of the match on Saturday wears the Mizuno Wave Stealth netball trainers and this is what she thinks about them:"The Stealth V is by far the best netball shoe Ive found. Its incredibly stable underfoot whilst still being flexible enough on the sole to work with the quick change of direction thats essential. For a sturdier shoe thats designed to protect and support its very lightweight and breathable due to the mesh upper. The grip is also amazing. Probably the best Ive come across in my time! And it looks good too.""In short, supportive, responsive, durable, lightweight and stylish. What more could you want from a netball trainer?"So there you have it, the best two netball trainers as voted for 'with their feet' by the country's top players.
