Our top picks from the Asics Netball shoe 2019 range

Our team of Podiatrists are not only skilled in all thing’s feet they’re also pretty handy on the netball court. We caught up with Custom Podiatry Services Podiatrist, and resident player, Emma Cirelli on the best shoes for your feet this season.


Emma used to play C and WA and enjoyed the fast pace of the game and being apart of a team having played for Newton Jaguars netball clubs for over 10 years and was apart for the Newton Jaguars Premier League for six years. She also participated in the South Australian Catholic School Girls netball team for five years and represented South Australia for netball.


As our most experienced Netballer at Custom Podiatry Services, we couldn’t think of a more suitable person to talk about the importance of looking after your feet during netball and which brand of shoes she recommends help you put your best foot forward.


“Netball is a very demanding sport on not only the lower limb but your shoes as well. It is a game that can be played both indoors and outdoors, filled with sharp turns, change of direction, jumping and sudden stopping. It is no wonder that there are specifically designed netball shoes.


The ‘Netburners’ from the ASICS range minimise the impact and stress upon the feet when you’re enjoying your netball match.
