The right basketball shoes deliver up style on and off the court. Think about what kind of player you are when selecting your NBA® Player footwear:
- Power players need shoes that deliver plush cushioning and stability. Go for a classic basketball high-top, which supports your ankle through the game’s multidirectional movements and sudden bursts. Responsive foam padding keeps you light on your feet.
- Fast players should opt for a lightweight shoe with moderate support, cushion and flexibility. Low-cut basketball shoes are a great option for these players.
- All-around players need moderate ankle support and cushioning. These players can select from a variety of shoe constructions.
High-tops deliver maximum ankle stability during aggressive games. Players who feel restricted in high-tops can opt for mid-tops or low-tops, which allow for a greater range of movement.
For the air-light feel you crave, choose basketball shoes that feature perforated or mesh paneling in the upper, which promote breathability. A secure fit around the arches provides a locked-in feel as you move.
The outsole of your basketball shoes should be flat and moderately wide, creating a stable base to prevent ankle rollovers. The herringbone patterned outsole is common in basketball—it provides ample traction on hardwood and keeps you steady during quick stops and starts.
