Ping Pong Shoes

Updated on July 11, 2011

Table Tennis Shoes

Table Tennis shoes are by no means a necessity for table tennis/ping pong but are useful if you are serious about table tennis and will help improve your game (not massively but they will help.) .  Table Tennis is growing in popularity and is a great sport which is fun and healthy and is brilliant for all levels.  As you progress you may want to invest in some good table tennis shows. Table tennis shoes are better than normal trainers - table tennis requires fast, quick, skilful, clever movements so good footwear is a must.

I am just going to provide an overview of table tennis shows in this hub and show you a few examples of table tennis shoes you can buy from amazon.

What to Look For

Some things to look for and think about are the grip, support, flexibility, shoe size, price, sole and comfort.  You basically want a comfortable table tennis shoe which has good grip and will let you move around freely.

Butterfly 808 Table Tennis Shoes

The Butterfly 808 Table Tennis shoes are really comfortable while providing an excellent grip so you can control your footwork.  These table tennis shoes are also made by Butterfly who are one of the leading table tennis brands so you know they are going to be of a high quality and designed for table tennis. 

These shoes are also not too expensive and are really good table tennis shoes. 

TIBHAR Rookie II Table Tennis Shoes

These table tennis shoes are extremely lightweight and comfortable. They are ideal as they are designed for quick fast movements and also have a good grip. A good choice of shoe for table tennis.

DONIC Waldner Table Tennis Shoes

These table tennis shoes are of the highest quality and are highly recommended.  They have a non-slip sole with a high percentage of natural rubber.  The Donic Waldner are also very comfortable and are shock absorbing and have a breathable material on the upper. 

The DONIC Waldner Table Tennis Shoes are another excellent choice!

      Good stuff. Butterfly shoes for me. Have gone for thicker soles now as my toes got sore over the years...

      Great Hub. I can't believe I didn't know Table Tennis shoes even existed. I buy running shoes once or twice per year, have been in sporting goods stores countless times in my life and have even bought table tennis paddles in the last couple of years.

      I know I only discovered them recently too - however it makes sense as these shoes do help you improve!

      I had no idea that you could buy table tennis shoes. Well, I guess you can learn something new by reading. Thanks, a whole bunch.
