Abstract

INTRODUCTION
This study aimed at analyzing the influence of shoes characteristics on various vertical jump performances.

SYNTHESIS OF THE FACTS
One national basketball player was filmed while performing a squat jump, a standardized countermovement jump, and a free countermovement jump. Barefoot condition and eight pairs of shoes were tested.

CONCLUSION
The highest jump was reached in the barefoot condition. The interaction “heavy+high” decreased performance of the vertical jumps. This jumps height diminution would be related to a change of co-ordination and to a decrease of the range of motion of lower limb joints.

INTRODUCTION
L’objectif de cette étude est d’analyser l’influence du port des chaussures de basketball sur la performance en sauts verticaux.

SYNTHÈSE DES FAITS
Un basketteur était filmé réalisant un squat jump, un contre mouvement jump standardisé et un contre mouvement jump libre. La condition pieds nus ainsi que huit paires de chaussures étaient testées.

CONCLUSION
La plus haute hauteur de saut était atteinte pieds nus. L’interaction « haut+lourd » altère la performance des sauts verticaux. Cette diminution serait liée à une modification des coordinations et à une plus faible amplitude articulaire des articulations des membres inférieurs.
