Clay Court Shoes
Clay court shoes usually feature a full herringbone outsole to maximize the traction on the court . The herringbone pattern thrives here for side to side movement it allows the player to slide naturally and controlled. The pattern allows great traction during forward and backward movements.
While the sole pattern gives you the grip and stability you need, it also encourages the clay to come loose. When you're sliding for a ball, clay can move through the herringbone pattern, which helps you to control your movement. You should invest in clay shoes if you are playing on clay often since the upper is usually tighter to prevent excess clay entering your shoe.
