Description

Victor ™ VC955 Wide

Our Description

This court shoe is in our Adult Recreation category. Shoes in this category are suitable for continuous recreational adult use over prolonged periods of time.


Sport Suitability

This shoe was created specifically for badminton, but that does not mean it can be used only for badminton. In fact, this shoe is suitable for a wide variety of sports, including:

  • pickleball
  • squash
  • racquetball
  • table tennis
  • tennis
  • fencing
  • handball
  • dodgeball
  • floor hockey
  • floorball
  • crossminton
  • crosstraining
  • netball
  • stage combat

Keep in mind that the sole of this shoe works best on surfaces such as hardwood, mats, vinyl, and carpet. It is not ideal for use on hard acrylic tennis courts, concrete, asphalt, or clay, but it can be used on all of them.



Width of the Forefoot

Each shoe manufacturer describes the width of their shoes in different ways. This shoe is a men’s extra wide or a ladies’ double extra wide. Some brands call this a 4E, some call it a 3.0, some call it both, some call it neither.



Shape of the Toe Box

Our experts have labeled this shoe as a T3W. This means that, provided it is the correct length and width, it work wells for athletes with T1 (Egyptian), T2 (Roman), T3W (Wide Roman) and Morton’s Toe foot shapes. This shape also generally works well for most older athletes and/or most athletes with bunions.

Provided it is the correct length and width, this shoe works well with a T3W-Taper toe line.

As always, we strongly recommend trying shoes on before buying them. There is a lot more to a proper fit than just the length/width. The shape of your toe line plays a major role in overall comfort and performance. If your toe line conflicts with the taper of the toe box, it can result in injuries.

Book an appointment for a professional shoe fitting to find out what fits and what doesn’t.



Warning Signs

The most common warning signs that your shoes do not fit correctly:

  • chaffing, calluses, corns, blisters, bunions, hammertoes
  • pain in joints or knuckles of toes
  • blackened or bruised toenails
  • busting or tearing through sides of shoes
  • busting or tearing through tops of toe box

Contrary what what other players may tell you, shoes that are causing injuries to your feet are not the right size. If you are getting any kinds of injuries from your shoes, they are the wrong size, the wrong width, the wrong shape, or all of the above.

Shoes that fit properly allow your feet to move athletically inside of the shoe. This includes toe spreading as well as up-down toe movements that are essential for balance and recovery. Shoes that are too tight restrict your feet from making the adjustments necessary for balance.

If you doubt this, think of your hands. How much dexterity would your fingers have if they were all bound together inside of a skin-tight mitten? Now extend that thinking to your feet. Stand on one bare foot on the floor and try to balance without moving your toes. It simply can’t be done.

FREE YOUR TOES. Improve your balance and your performance will improve along with it. Book an appointment for a professional shoe fitting with a coach who is ethically bound to give you good advice. Get shoes that will actually contribute to improving your performance.

Breathing
