    Default sliding shoes

    i am a right handed player.
    while receiving drops, the inner side of my left shoes slides alond the court floor. while playing i am unaware of this. but after playing i find that the inner side of my left shoe is badly worn.
    please suggest why this happens. is this a flaw in my technique?
    also, how can i prevent it?

    It is not a flaw in your technique. It is actually evidence that this part of your technique is correct

    When you lunge forwards, you can use your left foot as a brake and stabiliser, turning it outwards. That's why it wears thin.

    After a while, I develop holes in that part of my shoes

    Default tape

    It happens to almost everyone unless your footwork is like super fast. To ensure that your shoe have a hole there, try using a tape. Tape that area of the shoe , tats what i do.
