Volleyball shoe introduction
Volleyball shoes are a kind of sports shoes, which are specially used for playing volleyball.

Specifically, a good pair of volleyball shoes: have good air permeability and comfort; the heel should be suitable for bounce and braking; the sole material (some use insoles) can increase the cushioning force of the shoe; the midsole of the shoe can make the sole of the foot completely Fits the sole; the forefoot can maximize the propulsion of the forefoot.

3 outer soles:
The outer sole can be made of rubber (hard), PU (polyurethane), or TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer. Compared with other materials, TPU has higher surface damage resistance, harder and easier maintenance).
Details of the outer sole:
Rotation point: It is convenient for both feet to rotate when changing direction.
Thin hook: It is helpful for volleyball shoes to hold the ground firmly.
Outer clip: both wear-resistant and non-slip function, can make volleyball shoes hold the ground firmly.
4 middle soles:
The middle sole is made of EVA material (ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer: better-cushioning effect than other materials) or is directly cast from EVA into a mold (including insoles). It is glued to the body of the shoe so that the sole has a cushioning effect. Fit on the shoe body. In addition, there is an air hole in the heel of the volleyball shoe, which strengthens the cushioning effect of the shoe.
