How much space between the end of your toes and the shoe?


Shoe fitting. I'm having problems with this.

I had some New Balances (cheap 424's or something like that) and they seem to fit me fine until I start playing tennis or basketball. Then the big toenail on the right foot gets bruised badly. Apparently, it doesnt fit me right.

I had some nikes that were a little more cushiony, but also more snug. I tried those out and my left toe gets bruised from moving around, I think or perhaps from being too tight. I can't seem to tell since it seems to fit perfectly.

Maybe I just have a funny shaped foot?

The New Balance was pushing these on me hard. They were $110 so I figured I would do a little research on the matter first. They seemed more for straight jogging and running. Lacked arch support. Do you think they'd be suitable for a lot of side to side movement, as well as basketball?

I have no idea I play basketball in them if that makes a difference

My favorite NB's I've owned have been 1123, 587, & 580

More than likely your right foot is bigger than the left. Get your feet measured. You should have a thumbs width from the end of your toe to the end of the shoe.

my mom did that when i was a kid. mainly to allow a little room for growth.

as an adult you don't need that much room.

Go to a reputable running shoe store or other specialty shoe place and get them to measure you accurately for size AND width. Then you will know where to start when looking at any type of shoe.

A thumb's width between your toe and shoe.

However, you shouldnt' be playing basketball or tennis in running shoes.

I've broken my second toe on my right foot several times and have a huge callous on the outside of my big toe from playing ball. I've never been able to find a shoe that really fits for some reason. I tried playing in running shoes a couple times and I always end up rolling my ankles. It's a curse.

You need to make sure the ball of your foot is at the widest point of the shoe as well.

Sure you do. The most common mistake adults make is buying shoes that are too small.
