Nike® basketball footwear is designed to be lightweight yet aggressive on the court. Move like you were meant to with game-changing details, including flexible forefoot mesh, power traction outsoles and sock liners that wick away perspiration.
Consider your playing style and position when buying your basketball shoes. Aggressive power players tend to need a shoe with stiff midsole cushioning and a high-top collar for extra support and stability. Speed players should go for a lightweight, low-top shoe. Versatile players might look for a Nike® shoe that combines these elements for a more personalized fit.
Traction is essential on the basketball court, and Nike® basketball shoes are outfitted with premium rubber outsoles. Many feature a classic herringbone pattern.
It’s technology that sets Nike® basketball shoes apart from the rest. This industry-leading footwear is specially optimized with all the features you need to perform at your best.
Nike® uppers are engineered for light breathability and a low-profile fit that promotes stability. Ultra-lightweight mesh uppers provide proper air flow. Many shoes feature the brand’s signature Nike® Flywire technology—innovative threads that function like suspension bridge cables. Flywire reduces she weight while doubling down on support.
Move fluidly on the court with the help of Nike® Zoom Units, compact air pockets that provide superb shock absorption. Nike® Phylon midsoles offer firm cushion—without adding unnecessary bulk to your shoe.
