Tennis, running, netball: Do I really need a specific shoe for a specific sport?

Over the past 40 years the “modern” sports shoe has evolved from the all-purpose sneaker to an abundance of sport-specific shoes. Given we have so much choice – and with encouragement from big brands and keen shop assistants – it seems logical to select footwear designed specifically for each activity.\n\nBut what does the evidence say? Do we really need to wear a unique shoe for each activity we participate in?\n\nThe answer is a little less clear than you might imagine.
