Did you know that your choice of shoes could be the game changer in your sport? Different activities place different demands on your feet and so it is essential to select the right shoes tailored to your sport's requirements. The right kind of sport shoe isn’t just about style, it’s a strategic decision that can significantly impact your performance, prevent injuries and provide comfort. With 6th Street, you can now find footwear that doesn’t just complement your game but elevates it. Here we bring you the perfect shoes for every sport or activity.

Running shoes

One of the basics for a good running shoe is thick cushioning to absorb shock. It should have flexibility and stability especially in the heel area and should also be light with good traction. This is essential to prevent stress fractures and other injuries. At 6th Street you will find some of the best cushioning you would want in a run with some of the best brands like Anta, Skechers, Adidas, Asics and CK.

 

 Walking Shoes

Is walking a part of your daily routine? Then look for a lightweight shoe with extra shock absorption in the heel and ball of the foot as it will reduce heel pain and muscle tension. Slightly rounded soles will help transfer the weight from heel to toe. The Skechers range of walking shoes or the Asics or Adidas range of walking shoes are lightweight and flexible. The best part is that you can find some great deals for them at 6th Street .

Football Shoes

If Football is your go-to-sport, like it is for many in Qatar, then you need shoes with spikes or studs on the sole for a proper grip on the football field. They are designed to have a tight fit which helps when kicking the ball. The Adidas Predator Accuracy Turf and Ground shoes and the Predator Edge Ground shoes are some of the best football shoes on the market and you can get yours at 6th Street.

Tennis Shoes

Tennis shoes are heavier than running shoes as it needs to support the foot during quick side-to-side movements and shifts in weight. Shoes need stability from both inside and outside. For soft courts it is recommended to wear soft soled ones for better traction and spiked soles for playing on hard courts. On 6th Street  you will find tennis shoes by Adidas and Calvin Klein that combine utility with style. 

Basketball Shoes

You need a shoe with a thick and stiff sole to provide extra stability while running or jumping on the basketball court. A high-top shoe can give better support to the ankles and may decrease the risk of injury. Get some of the best basketball kicks by Adidas or Tommy Hilfiger Low Top or the logo detailed shoes at 6th Street.

Sneakers

Sneakers are some of the most popular types of shoes in the world. They are a casual type of sports shoes worn mainly for aesthetics and fashion. Comfort and style are some of the most important factors to consider while buying a sneaker. At 6th Street you will find a variety of sneaker brands from Adidas, Aeropostale, Aldo, Asics, BHPC, Call it Spring, and many more. You are sure to find one that fits your style and price.
