Nike® Basketball Shoes for the Performance You Demand
You need a basketball shoe that matches your position and your playing style. Think about these factors when shopping Nike basketball shoes:
- Speed players need a lightweight shoe with a moderate amount of support, cushion and flexibility. Many fast players look for a low-cut shoe.
- Power players should take advantage of shoes with maximum stability and cushion. Think high-tops with plush padding and dense outsoles.
- Versatile players should opt for a shoe with moderate ankle support and cushion—a blend of features to suit their game.
Nike basketball shoes are outfitted with the latest in footwear technology, so you can make the most of your game. Shoes with Nike's proprietary Flywire technology offer a dynamic fit for sure-footed confidence during play. The brand's Lunarlon cushioning is ultra-soft and responsive to protect against hard landings.
The outsole of your basketball shoe is vital for your game. Nike basketball shoes are built from highly durable rubber and outfitted with a herringbone pattern, the industry standard for grip on hardwood. Advanced power flex traction helps you grip and accelerate on the court.
