My experience with shoes for ball hockey has been a wild ride. I wore Nike Air Max Torch SLs for a long time. They were very durable but are hard to find nowadays. I’ve tried mesh Nike running shoes: absolutely destroyed on dek tile and not good for taking slashes. Back in 2018, I found Knapper and tried their ball hockey shoes. The first few versions were rough, but they’ve evolved well over the years. Today’s version offers a solid sole that performs well even in the rain, extra toe protection, and midfoot padding. My only critique is that the insoles disintegrate very quickly. I solved that with aftermarket insoles, however.
