Your shoes need to be well fitted and comfortable. You should be able to effortlessly glide around the court without noticing they are there.
For this reason I would recommend purchasing shoes specifically designed for squash. Tennis shoes tend to be too heavy for squash, have a different grip and provide different ankle and heel support to that required for squash and while running shoes maybe light enough for squash, again they have different support mechanisms built in.
It is important that the sole of the shoe you purchase is non-marking – try breaking in new shoes by wearing them around the house. This may help you to avoid getting blisters when you wear them for the first time on court.
Before play check the length of your laces and if necessary double-tie them as you don’t want to trip during play.
