Are you looking for the best men’s basketball shoes to improve your game? We have here a good selection from different brands from all over the world. Included are signature shoes from top NBA players.
Nike LeBron 17
If this pair is good enough for a king, then it’s good enough for you. Among all of the LeBron James signature sneakers, this one has the largest Air Max heel unit. And for increased cushioning, it has two independent Air Zoom Pods. It also has a textured Battleknit 2.0 upper for an aggressive vibe.
Jordan Why Not Zer0.2
This is the shoe responsible for all of Russel Westbrook’s explosive plays. And it’s as flashy as the Houston Rockets guard. And like Westbrook, this shoe is not all hype. With its innovative features, it can definitely help improve your game. One excellent feature of the shoe is the phylon in the heel that provides maximum support.
Adidas N3XT L3V3L
The Adidas N3XT L3V3L looks like it came straight from the future. Those from the older generations may get worried about the lack of laces in this pair. But athletes who have worn it swear by how snug and comfortable it is. New features such as Lightstrike and a Primeknit upper provide a wonderful playing experience.
Converse All Star Pro BB
This may look like your grandfather’s basketball shoes but it isn’t. This is actually a high-tech shoe with a Nike React sole and Quadfit mesh upper. This shoe is definitely designed for today’s style of basketball. This shoe is designed by Eric Avar who played an important role in making Kobe Bryant’s Nike shoes.
Under Armour Curry 6
Under Armour’s HOVR system can give the cushioning systems of Nike and Adidas a run for their money. HOVR provides cushioning to the entire foot, not just the parts that receive the most impact. This shoe also provides excellent ventilation. It can keep your foot dry even after a full game.
New Balance OMN1S
The understated design of the New Balance OMN1S, also known as Kawhi Leonard’s signature shoes, reflects the simplicity and humility of the LA Clippers’ superstar. But what it lacks in flair, it more than makes up in features. It’s built on the patented FuelCell foam and features a knit construction using synthetic panels.
ANTA Rajon Rondo RR5
Chinese brand Anta has cemented its legit status by signing NBA players Gordon Hayward, Klay Thompson, and Rajon Rondo. But it’s the latter’s signature shoes that are worthy to be included in this list. This shoe effectively combines comfort and durability with its A-Shock cushioning, A-Web upper, and the use of nylon cables.
Puma Uproar is part of the German brand’s reentry to the basketball market. And there’s no better for Puma to say “I’m back” than with a technologically-advanced pair. The Uproar features the HYBRID cushioning system. It also has the Ignite foam and NRGY beads in the midsole. Rounding up its excellent features is a TPU heel piece that provides excellent support.
