View Full Version : heel pain?

11-29-2009, 11:04 PM
usually i just use casual nikes (af1s lol) or dunlop volleys for tennis but i wanted a proper tennis shoe so i went out and got some dunlop tennis shoes with proper support and everything, played a 3 setter and went home. all was good

next day i wake up and im having a bit of heel pain.. like it feels a bit tender/sore to walk. pain stayed for about 2 days and now its gone
if anything it was more of an annoyance, but im wondering what the problem here could be? I figured i'd have less chance of pain/injury with proper tennis shoes, but instead the first time i've worn a pair they give me a bad response :S

Are you sure it is the shoe?
I had recurring heel pain on one side, and this was after I got tennis shoes. Coincidentally, I also started playing more around the same time. My problem turned out to be pretty simple: I had to loosen up some seriously tight calves. Too bad it took me a while to figure it out.
