Today I’m talking with Kevin Huckle from Tyrol Pickleball.  Kevin worked with professional Pickleball players Chad Edwards and Simone Jardim to develop the first shoes specifically designed for Pickleball players. In the episode, he talks about the difference between a pickleball and tennis shoe and the challenge in creating a shoe sole that would hold up on certain outdoor surfaces.
