Everyone knows that playing sport is good for you physically. It gets you out of the house and away from the couch watching TV or playing video games. It’s been proven time and time again that playing a team like netball can have long-term benefits. Girls who are physically active, including those who play team sports, have a reduced risk of obesity, diabetes, depression and low self-esteem.
Says Fahiem Frizlar, Marketing Manager at Jordan & Co: “Being physically active can reduce the risk of developing health problems further down the track including osteoporosis, breast cancer and heart disease. Netball is a thrilling and intense sport and places a lot of pressure on your knees and ankles. You therefore need the right shoe and fit in order to perform better. Our newly launched Blast is designed for comfort and support in all the right places and is perfect for any rising netball star. They’re sturdy, supportive and provide vital support when changing direction and moving horizontally.”
The Blast is a white netball shoe with breathable mesh and synthetic overlays for comfort and lightness. The midsole is light-weight phylon and the outsole is in a hard wearing TPR to offer both grip and comfort on the court. The comfort inner sock is removable for easy replacement if needed.Frizlar concludes: “These shoes will give you the extra confidence to stand out in the crowd. On top of it, we’re having it tested by some of the country’s top high school netball teams to see how it can be improved. We always endeavour to give you the best product as the best price!”
The Blast is available in sizes 3 to 8 and the suggested retail price is R649.
The range is available at selected retailers countrywide.
