Help! My toe hurts
I'm having good friction between my adidas court shoes and the court but definitely not between my socks and the shoes. As a result, my right big toe got hurt very easily.
Any suggestion what I can do to the shoes or socks to solve the problem?

Spot on answer, find a shoe that fits you.
Badminton shoes should be tight but not too tight they restrict the normal flat position of your foot crushing it or too big so that you slide inside the shoe.

Yes, I tried to tie it more tightly but that didn't solve the problem. I've seen quite a few different types of sport inserts -- guess I'll try some of them and post the result in case someone else has the problem.
Thanks for the help.

1. Get a pair of badminton shoes, as they were special designed to give better support and room for the toes.
2. Get a pair of thicker socks. Thinner socks seem to be slippery and easily result into blisters.

1) wear a size shoe with about 1/2 to 1 cm provision for your toe. this is because when you break with your front leg after a lunge forward, your toe will be less likely to be compressed againts the shoe 'wall'.
2) higher end yonex shoes now come with insoles that provide better gripping for your socks. they have slight contours and 'gripping' material design. im not familiar with all the models but i know that SHB 89 and 98 have these features.
for a more budgeted shoe certain AR models have a similar feature. look out for those with 'ridge' insoles, but they tend to flatten out after some use.

it may be a problem with your technique when lunging.
when you lunge, are you landing with your heels, or are you landing with the bottom of your feet flat on the ground?
you need to learn to land on your heels. i used to do it the wrong way and i have very bruised toe, nowadays i have changed my lunging technique and so far so good.

Guess I should get a pair of Yonex shoes anyway.
Kwun, I've never thought about landing on my heels -- I'll spend some time practicing that.

Landon on heel VS land on fleet-footedOriginally Posted by kwun
Whether that leaflet refer to not to land on heel after jumping regardless of lunge? I presume your post referred to land on heel while lunge. Didn't it?

You might be right. However, I can not re-read it to assure since I've put it on trash....

Never land and sink the full momentum on your heels. Its bad for your knee. Land on your heel and transfer the momentum forward to your toes. You should also lose some momentum by allowing your knee to bend forward.

Iwan, I got your point. Thx.

Also, if you do get badminton shoes, make sure you leave a good inch left from your toe to the tip of your shoe.
Your feet swell when you play and therefore they expand.

Surely 1 inch gap between toe and shoe is too big That is about 2 sizes up?
