Netball:
High braking forces to stop abruptly due to rules that prevent stepping when in possession of ball  lower limb under greater stress. Due to increasing fitness of players these stresses are at a much higher level  increasing incidence of anterior cruciate ligament injuries . Ankle injuries are common. At least 40% of injured players had a problem with their footwear . High impact forces on hard surfaces  need for shock absorbing shoes. Movement of foot in poor fitting shoe  nail pathology.
Orthoses in netball need to be full length to prevent movement in the shoe and be covered with a layer of shock absorbing material.
