Boxing might not be the first sport you think of when it comes to deciding on a hobby for your child but there are lots of benefits to getting your youngster involved.

A fantastic way for them to stay active, boxing also helps increase children's concentration, instil respect and to build confidence and discipline.

But what does your child need for boxing? Along with some boxing gloves, you'll also need to pick up some boxing boots.

Why are boxing boots important?

Although not strictly necessary if your child is just dipping their toes into boxing, a pair of boxing boots are a must if it's something they are keen to progress in.

Typically made from breathable materials, boxing boots are designed to help sweat quickly evaporate so as to keep the feet dry to ensure the boxer stays on their feet and are able to grip the surface. They are also lightweight so your child can move quickly and agilely.
