The ‘sole’ of the matter
An old friend of mine told me that falling should be a secondary sport within agility, and we should have prizes for the person who trips best on course! I’ve taken my share of spills, but I know often we can help ourselves by wearing a decent pair of shoes. Quick always comes running back to check on me when I fall! I have a bit of a love affair with shoes, especially sneakers. I have favorite brands and fits, and use a different pair for agility on mats and agility on grass. One thing I found is completely necessary; good traction with tight lacing.
What makes for a good agility shoe for you? Do you have a specific pair you wear for indoor or outdoor agility? Share! I found my favorite sneakers through my friend’s recommendation.
