Basketball Shoes that are still going Strong

Check out some of the Best Basketball Shoes that were ranked in the top ten! Having attended many games, I am still left amazed at some of the comments people come out with in regards to the basketball shoes that are worn by players on the court.

Yes it still appears to be all about style, so if you've never owned at least one pair of kicks, whether it's Nike or Adidas from this selection, you really shouldn't be on a basketball court, or so I am led to believe.

Now before we proceed any further, I myself, am no Kobe Bryant, or Michael Jordan, so what gives me the right to create such a lens and say that these are some of The Best Shoes around?

Well, I have done my homework, studied some of the latest styles, trends and must have's, asked questions, and searched the web for what has been considered as some of the best kickers, but, my secret weapon is that of a fifteen year old who calls me uncle, and, who is one of the top players in his team, so with his help and experience, I create this wonderful lens, not only four our pleasure but your also and to give you an insight into the kicker world by sharing our own personal knowledge.

What to Consider when Buying your Kickers!

1. Basketball shoes are specifically designed to give the player support. You need to ensure that your choice of kickers provide ample support for the ankles and your arches. Most basketball players opt for high-cut shoes that provide extra protection from strains and sprains. Cushioning mid-sole is especially important for added support to your arches and helps prevent other injuries.

2. Check your toes are comfortable, make sure they are not crowding, you should feel comfortable when jumping, coming to a sudden halt or when running around.

What to Consider when Buying your Kickers!

3. Shoe size, a pretty important factor! The rule of thumb is 1/4 – 1/2 inch clearance from your big toe to the end of shoe! Make sure you try the shoes on while you are standing, trying any type of shoe on while in the sitting position gives you false results.

4. Lace- ups, and or zipper shoes are the most common and wiser choices as they provide better security for your feet and ensure more comfort and stability than those with velcro.

What to Consider when Buying your Kickers!

5. Material, your going to need a shoe that is durable, one that can stand all these fast and sudden movements. Modern technology provides kickers made of synthetic composite materials that can withstand more pressure than leathers, they are also lighter in weight and permits your feet to breathe better.

6. Buy your kickers later in the day, feet tend to swell throughout the day from all your activity, this should ensure a much better fit.

7. Cost and Style – Remember you get what you pay for and you also want to look good on the court! Check out what Kobe, or better still, see what Penny Hardaway is wearing then you can’t go wrong.

    My oldest son has a pair of Adizero Rose 2.0 shoes that bought himself, saved money and mowed lawns to get them. I noticed they were getting pretty worn so I bought him of the Derrick Rose 3.0s for his birthday this month. He lives to play basketball and DRose is his favorite player, so he was totally geeked. He slept with them on the first night he had them :-p

    What an amazing collection - talk about spoilt for choice, but I think it has to be the Nike Zoom Kobe Vii .

    It amazes me what the cost of basketball shoes is today. I'm 66 and the shoes we wore as kids and teenagers, I played basketball in high school were so cheap. Of course we didn't have near the selections back then.
