Find Men's Basketball Shoes at Dick's Sporting Goods
Basketball is a strenuous game and with the relentless starting, stopping and stressful movement, a good pair of mens basketball shoes is essential. No matter if you play in an organized league or just casual pickup games, your sneakers must offer support and stability, not to mention flexibility and durability. Perhaps the single most influential characteristic in selecting a pair of basketball shoes is position, because the needs of a power, speed or all-around player can differ dramatically. Power players often find that heavier shoes with maximum support and stability are the most helpful for their type of game, while speed players prefer lighter shoes with less support. Understandably, shoes for the all-around player balance between the two.
At Dick’s Sporting Goods, you’ll find a range of mens basketball shoes that offer different combinations of support from our Nike, Adidas and Reebok brands. Whatever the type of player you are, you’ll find a pair of basketball sneakers to match your game at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
The Basics of Selecting Women's Basketball Shoes
Every athlete wants an edge during competition, which is why female athletes need the best pair of womens basketball shoes available. But selecting the proper shoe is not always easy; athletes must understand the basics of buying womens basketball shoes. First, most women should not buy mens basketball shoes because they may not fit and or offer the necessary support. Second, select the type of shoe most appropriate to your game; womens basketball shoes should be selected based on whether you’re a fast, power or all-around player. Finally, a high performing pair of basketball sneakers must balance both performance and comfort so start with the proper shoe size, ensure that you obtain the support you need and ensure that they have adequate padding. At Dick’s Sporting Goods, we have basketball shoes specifically for women that will meet all of your needs.
Kids Basketball Shoes Fundamentals
Younger athletes often gravitate toward the hottest shoes with the flashiest styles, but finding high performing is not that easy. However, there are some basics that can be applied when buying basketball sneakers for kids.
First, adequate support is especially important so high-top shoes should be a default. Offering greater support, kids basketball shoes that limit twisting injuries are better for athletes who are quickly growing. Additional features that improve the fit of the shoe are important too. Velcro straps or the ability to lace the shoe up the ankle are preferred. Having the right type of sole is also important for kids basketball shoes and should be selected based on the playing surface. Finally appearance should be considered because kids do care about how they look in their shoes. Make sure you get their buy-in before you buy them the right basketball shoes!
