Abstract

Athletic footwear can influence performance, injury and comfort. Badminton is a dynamic sport characterized by quick movements such as lunges, side cuts and jumps. As a result, many aspects are important for badminton footwear. Therefore, the purpose of this project was to determine biomechanical differences between newly developed badminton shoes and its competitive badminton shoes.
