Sports shoes; almost every sport uses specific shoes and they are all different. Well according to all players the need of sports shoes consists of the demands of that sport. For say, track and field, the practice shoes are slightly different than the actual race shoes. According to Brett Bermudez and other track members, Dakota Alford, "both shoes are comfortable, since the sport is based on a lot of footwork, but race shoes consist of spikes." Brett also mentioned that for sprinting he prefers Nike over any other brand, while for distance he prefers Saucony. The spikes help the runner keep a better form and help prevent them from tripping. The type of race also has an effect on the type of spikes used on the runner’s shoes.

In football, Mauricio Orellana mentioned, “If I want a specific type of shoe and color and I usually buy Nike, but this one time the shoe I want is a different brand, then I'm going to purchase the other brand. I feel like if the player isn't comfortable with the shoes they wear, they won't perform to their best level."
In volleyball, Romario Orellana and Ziad both agreed, "It's like car brands or clothing brands, the better the brand and shoe; the more 'respect' people will give you. We don't really know how to put it in words, but we guess that people should choose their shoes based on comfort and the specific sports' excercise first followed by color or brand."
What about a sport such as swimming? Well swimmers use fins while practicing, in order to help them with their leg work and overall stroke. It helps the swimmer and makes him/her feel faster in the water. They are only used in practice because they aren't allowed in an actual race but it really leaves an impact on the legs and helps a lot.
So overall shoes are necessary in almost every sport and they can really help a lot. So, the type of ball (if used) isn't the only thing that differentiates one sport from another but also the shoes. They help the player, the team, and it allows them to have something comfortable to wear while also showing bright colors to show their style or school spirit.
