The Best Basketball Shoes 2017 – Get The Hoop Shoe For You

Posted on Posted in Product Review

Picking the right basketball shoes for you is a BIG DECISION. You want to make sure that you get the right ones that are affordable, durable, comfortable for you, and more importantly, fits your play style.

We see it all to often where a basketball player would start the game with a certain pair of shoes on, then after halftime they switched them out because they didn’t feel “right” to them. It happens in high school, college, and even, professional basketball.

Buying the right basketball shoes for you is not no easy decision like deciding on the candy you want from the store. The top name brand shoe companies such as Nike, Jordan, Adidas, Under Armour, etc… They all release a new pair of basketball shoes every other week and it is not like you can give each shoe a test run (That would be really cool and helpful if you could though).

So you really have to do your research and make a decision on a pair of shoes that are suitable for YOU. Take a look The Best Basketball Shoes of 2017 that will help and give you clarity on making that decision.

These shoes have constantly received high ratings from the players from all positions wearing them.


Nike PG 1

Basketball players that all hooped in the Nike PG 1 all shared a common concept in their review about the shoe, mainly that these shoes are great for the player that are light on their feet, looking to make the athletic play on the court.

For Paul George first signature shoe, they are designed to match his crazy athleticism on the court and fit his style off the court.

Lets get into the breakdown of PG’s first signature shoe:

Breakdown Of Nike PG 1

Traction

You have the option of getting the PG 1’s with a translucent or solid rubber out sole. To be honest, you can’t go wrong with either out-sole because they both get great traction on an inside court. Not so much on concrete.

But if I had to choose, I would definitely go with the solid rubber because it’s more durable and gives you that “No slip” feel on the court.

Score: 4.4 out of 5.0

Cushion

The only cushion on the Pg’s is the 4 Foot Zoom Air technology, the rest of the mid-sole is straight up Phylon.  This type of cushioning is going to give you faster reaction speed. Meaning, your not going to sink into the shoe when performing a dribble move or driving to the basket.

Don’t even worry about impact protection because the 4 Foot Zoom Air tech is absorbing most of the shock right from the get-go.

So if you are a quick player and want to remain a quick player, this type of cushion setup is for you.

Score: 4.0 out of 5.0

Materials

This is the best aspect of the shoe, it gives you a little bit of everything without it feeling to bulky or awkward.

You got the Fuse protecting the breathable mesh underneath it at the  forefoot area so you won’t get stinky and sweaty feet.

Supple leather material in the rear panel of the shoe which offers more support, but makes it more restrictive. But that is good in this section of the shoe so you won’t fly out your shoes when your doing a crossover or playing defense.

Not only does it looks great, but it performs great.

Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

Fit

 

They fit True-To-Size and feels great. You don’t even remember your wearing the shoe when your playing.

It provides great lock-down of your mid-foot which is another highlight of the shoe. The strap in the forefoot may look useless, but it actually provides extra stability while your playing.

Score: 4.5 out of 5.0

Support

For this shoe being a low-top, it has every support feature a mid or high-top shoe would have. The only thing it would be missing is a couple of inches of extra material around the ankle.

The sock-like fit and lock-down of the shoe is good, so your going to have good support from the shoe. The mid-sole really cuffs your foot so decreases the risk of you rolling or tweaking your ankle.

Score: 4.5 out of 5.0

Overall

For Paul George’s first signature shoe, they have created an all-around solid basketball shoe.

There really much more you can ask for in a shoe. It’s durable, gets great traction with the rubber out-sole option, lightweight, super comfortable when playing in them. But the best part about them is that their AFFORDABLE.

Your definitely going to get a return on your investment with these bad boys.

Overall Score: 4.6 out of 5.0

 

 

 

 


Nike Lebron 14

Lebron “King” James is the greatest basketball player in the world, so it’s only right that he has shoes fit for a king.  The Nike Lebron 14 were inspired by Lebron’s growing explosiveness and his expanding skill set.

These shoes are lighter than Lebron’s previous shoes, but still delivers the lock-down protection and responsiveness that you need when your doing your thing on the basketball court.

Lets breakdown this “Attack Mode” shoe:

Breakdown Of Nike Lebron 14

Traction

For using an translucent out-sole setup, the traction on these shoes are not great, but surely gets the job done.

It uses this unique camouflage pattern on the out-sole of the shoe that has tiny holes in it which sometimes can be annoying. The reason why is because these tiny holes gets clogged up with dust and dirt and can make for a slip N’ slide on the bottom of your shoe.

So it’s important to keep these holes clean by wiping the bottom of your shoe and your grip on the court should be just fine.

Score: 4.2 out of 5.0

Cushion

The Lebron 14 equips the Hex Zoom Air units as its focal point of cushion.

However, this is the largest version of this setup that have been released which means the cushion pretty thick. The Zoom Air is bottom-loaded, so you don’t feel the Zoom units as your hooping.

Also, because the way they are placed your weight is distributed evenly throughout the shoe.

Your going to get all the cushion you need without sacrificing any mobility or flexibility.

This type of setup offers a ton of impact protection, so if your a big guy that is always jumping and bumping around on the court, the Lebron 14 is the PERFECT shoe for you.

Score: 4.5 out of 5.0

Materials

The shoes are made out of foam and mesh which exactly doesn’t add up to the retail price of $175.

To me that is a little too steep for a shoe built like this can be so expensive just because of the name behind it, but if you got the dollars for it, make it happen. However, in terms of actual performance, this was a great setup for the shoe. They don’t feel restrictive or clunky like some of Lebron’s other signature shoes.

They are ready-to-go straight out the box, so you won’t have to 2 to 3 days breaking them in.

Score: 4.4 out of 5.0

Fit

These shoes fit true-to-size because of the one-piece construction. Usually with a one-piece setup like this, the lock-down can be very shaky. But surprisingly, the lock-down of this shoe was good.

The lacing of the shoe is only fly-wire cables which can lessen the durability of the shoe. The strap on the shoe is not just for looks, but it actually does its job by keeping the mid-foot locked in while your playing.

So it offers that secure one-to-one fit and don’t have to worry about your shoe flying off when your making moves on the court.

Score: 4.4 out of 5.0

Support

 

The support of this shoe offers more of traditional features such as an internal and external heel counter in the rear of the shoe. These heel counters works great to reinforce lateral movement so your not sliding off the insoles.

However, the build of the mid-sole could have been better because the material is a little bit soft. So there is an slightly increased risk of rolling your ankle when changing directions or speed.

The forefoot lateral containment could have definitely been improved, but everything from the mid-foot and back was fantastic.

Score: 4.2 out of 5.0

Overall

The Lebron Nike 14 is definitely not perfect, but no shoe is. Impact protection and mobility are definitely the highlights of this shoe. Traction could have been improved, but it will get the job done. I hope on the next model they fix the forefoot containment because that was the biggest downfall of the shoe (in my opinion).

This may not be the best Lebron shoe ever, but it is for sure one of the BEST Lebron’s shoes ever (In my opinion).

Overall Score: 4.4 out of 5.0

 

 


Harden Vol 1

The Harden Vol. 1 is James Harden first signature shoe with Adidas.

A lot of star basketball players leave most of the creation of their signature shoes up to the brands that endorse them, but James was heavily involved in on this one. Making sure they had every detail right to fit his style of play on the court and his lifestyle off the court.

James Harden is one of the most prolific scorers in the NBA, and arguably, of all-time. So you already know his shoes are meant for getting buckets.

Lets breakdown the dynamics of this “Buckets-getting” shoe:’

Breakdown Of Harden Vol 1

Traction

The traction on the Harden’s were specifically designed for James movements on the court such as his foot strikes, footsteps, pressure points, and all that kind of good stuff.

This traction pattern is works extremely well because of the high quality rubber compound they used which is super tacky. Feels like the shoe is biting the court, but not too much to where your tripping over your feet.

So if your constantly on the balls of your feet during the game making sharp cuts, changing speeds, and making explosive movements. This traction pattern will sync well with your play style.

Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

Cushion

The cushion on these shoes are unique because they utilize the lowest form of the Boost cushion. Meaning, your getting the closes to the ground feel which is also known as “court feel”.

This method of cushioning improves your stability, your sense of balance, enhances your responsiveness time, and makes your first step that much quicker because your not sinking into the cushion.

Plus, it doesn’t sacrifice impact protection because they use Boost cushion throughout the entire soles of the shoe. So this is a PERFECT shoe for guards, obviously James Harden being one of them.

Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

Materials

With these Hardens, every colorway on the shoe is a different type of material, which means the material is a combination of knit and mesh. At first it may feel stiff, but the more that you wear it, the more it breaks in. It wraps around your foot nicely and doesn’t stretch due to the nylon in the rear of the shoe.

My ABSOLUTE favorite aspect of the shoe is the overlay independent feature in the toe area which is super beneficial because it allows the entire forefoot to move freely without restriction.

So when your getting ready to explode by your defender, you’ll be able to get full flexibility in your foot.

Score: 4.6 out of 5.0

Fit

If you have a wide foot like myself, your going to love these babies. They are a little bit wide and long in the front part of the shoe. I recommend going true-to-size, but you can down half a size if you want a more of a secure fit.

The lock-down on the shoes couldn’t been better due to the A-symmetrical lacing system. It really feels like a giant bear hug for your feet.

Score: 4.7 out of 5.0

Support

 

While it is an low-top shoe, it has all the support features you want and need in a shoe. It has a wide stable base and exaggerated out-sole which promotes natural stability and protects lateral movement.

The heel counter which protects your ankles keeps your foot in the shoe, on the foot-bed, no slippage whatsoever. All those separate components works together as a team to make an AWESOME shoe.

Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

Overall

James Harden and team Adidas did a pretty great job pretty much of everything. They have really exceptional traction and cushion while maintaining court feel which is very rare in today’s basketball shoes. Usually one of the two has to be sacrificed, not with the Hardens though.

The materials could have been improved, but they do feature premium leather on the toe area which you don’t see too often.

Plus, it doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg to get your hands on some like other signature athletes basketball shoes.

Overall Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

 

 


KD Zoom 9

Kevin Durant is without an doubt a complete nightmare match up for anyone trying to guard him. He is a 6’10 guard, long and lanky, quick and explosive, can shoot the ball from beyond the three point land, and attack his defenders off the dribble.

Nike KD Zoom 9 is Kevin Durant’s ninth signature shoe with Nike and his first line of shoes as a member of the Golden State Warriors. Built to fit like a glove and provide the support you need for the big moments of the games.

Let’s get into the breakdown of this “unstoppable” shoe:

Breakdown Of KD Zoom 9

Traction

The KD Zoom 9 features an honey-comb traction pattern which is setup in multi-directional format.

This is great because you have lateral and linear coverage all in one shoe. I recommend getting the solid rubber instead of the translucent because it gets a better grip on the court, but it’s up to you.

So you won’t have to worry about slipping out of your shoe on defense or when your making that deadly crossover to make your defender fall on offense.

Score: 4.6 out of 5.0

Cushion

The cushion was one of the focal points in the creation of this shoe, and they did an amazing job. It feature an full-length articulate Zoom Air cushion.

This is nothing new in basketball shoes, but this air cushion is much lower to the ground which INCREASES your court feel.

It includes an added bonus which is the flex-groove in the forefoot area. This allows you to move freely without ever feel like your lagging or an step slow on your basketball moves.

Score: 5.0 out of 5.0

Materials

The Zoom 9’s are unique in its on way as it features full fly-knit in the forefoot area.

This type of setup creates an one-to-one fit without any restriction, pinching, crushing, or anything like that. The only downside to having material like this is durability as fly-knit can be torn down over time. However, there is virtually no break-in process whatsoever.

You can buy these shoes right before your game and be ready to play.

Score: 4.6 out of 5.0

Fit

 

The tongue doesn’t stretch much, so your going to have to put a little bit of elbow grease in when putting them on.

I recommend going your true size, but they do feel a slight bit long. The lock-down on these shoes are very solid even with the weird setup of the heel construction. With the fly-knit in the forefoot area, it gives you the snug fit on your foot.

The lacing on the tongue is embedded within the shoe which gives you really great heel lock-down. Once these babies are on and laced up, they are going to STAY ON.

Score: 4.4 out of 5.0

Support

You got a nice flat base on the bottom of the shoe and it outlines the foot really well. The quality materials offer a comfortable fit and the heel containment is everything if your looking for actual support.

Score: 4.5 out of 5.0

Overall

Nike basketball hit it right on the money with the KD Zoom 9. You have some great traction, great cushion, high-quality materials, sufficient support, and a solid fit depending on your size. You cannot go wrong with The Nike Zoom KD 9 in your basketball shoe collection.

Overall Score: 4.7 out of 5.0

 

 


Kyrie 3

Kyrie Irving has the best handles in the entire NBA (once again, in my opinion) and that is why he his a complete nightmare for whoever has the defensive assignment of guarding him.

With his elite footwork, quick change of speeds, and deception, you really don’t have a clue on where he is going or what dribble move he is going to pull out on you to get there. The Kyrie 3 basketball shoe is made to match his lighting-quick footwork while maximizing comfort and support.

Lets dig deeper into the dynamics of this “ball on a string” shoe:

Breakdown Of Kyrie 3

Traction

The traction on the Kyrie 3 are as good as it looks. These shoes are the real deal when it comes sticking to the floor.

You got complete linear coverage, from front to back, and all of your lateral movements are supported with the colored areas.

It doesn’t matter what position you play whether your a post player or an guard, you are going to get COMPLETE traction with these bad boys.

Score: 5.0 out of 5.0

Cushion

These shoes doesn’t offer a lot of cushion, but they provide GREAT court-feel. There is not a lot of cushion in the front of the shoe which some player prefer. I am not a big fan of it. However, there is a Zoom Air unit in the heel of the shoe.

So if your that type of player that doesn’t care much about cushion, but relies on court-feel, you have met your match with the Kyrie 3’s.

Score: 4.3 out of 5.0

Materials

The materials on the Kyrie 3’s is the absolute CORE of the shoe.

These guys offer a ton of mesh which allows you the comfort to move more freely and naturally. There is a flex-zone in the forefoot of the shoe which increases your responsiveness times because your able to push off the balls of your feet faster.

Not to over-exaggerate, it almost feels like your wearing no shoes at all. Awesome right? I know.

Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

Fit

In terms of fit, I recommend going true to size. If you have an wide foot, you might want to check out going up half a size because they feel slightly narrow.

Narrow enough to give you that secure fit, but not too narrow where your entire foot is suffocating.

The lock-down of the shoe was great, all the way from the forefoot to the heel. Right when you lace them up, they feel very firm.  However, they do break-in pretty smoothly.

Score: 4.7 out of 5.0

Support

The support is very simple, but gets the job done. Most of the support is coming from the base, it kind of wraps around the bottom of your foot because your foot sits in the mid-sole of the shoe. Their also equipped with an heel counter in the back of the shoe to protect your ankle.

I have no complaints when it comes the support of the shoe even though it is pretty basic.

Score: 4.5 out of 5.0

Overall

I really think guards are going to love these shoes because it sticks to the floor, provides great court-feel, and supplies free range of motion while still still maintaining support. As a reminder, if you need a lot of cushion when your playing basketball, this is not the shoe for you.

Overall Score: 4.6 out of 5.0

 

 


Under Armour Curry 3

Stephen Curry is not freakishly athletic, not the quickest, and he is even considered “undersized” for his position. But he is highly skilled, has an high basketball IQ, and can ABSOLUTELY shoot the lights out the ball which makes him one of the most deadliest players on the offensive side of the basketball.

Stephen has an history with bad ankle injuries, so he designed the Under Armour Curry 3’s to be light and responsive while still maintaining maximum support.

Let’s check this “Long range sniper” shoe out below:

Breakdown Of The Curry 3

Traction

Simplicity is KEY when describing the traction pattern on the Curry 3’s. Their is nothing really special about the actual design of the shoe, but these babies stick to the floor. The reason why the traction is so good is because of the type of rubber they used.

This type of material is tacky, but not to tacky to where you are tripping over your feet. Good or bad court, your not going to have to worry about wiping your shoes.

To be honest, I don’t understand why their isn’t more basketball shoes with this type of material.

Score: 5.0 out of 5.0

Cushion

The cushion on the Curry 3’s is Charge Foam which is Under Armour’s go-to for almost every Curry shoe. This type of foam is very decent, but offers moderate impact protection.

However, this shoe is geared towards an guard style of play. So it gives you a more of a firm and responsive ride when when your attacking the basket or on a fast-break.

Then, it softens up on you when your just standing around at the free-throw line or waiting to hit the spot up three pointer in the corner.

Score: 4.5 out of 5.0

Materials

The materials on these shoes is another great aspect. Definitely my second-most favorite after the traction. Under Amour uses an combination of “Threadborne” and  “AnaFoam” for the making of this shoe.

Basically, the shoe molds to your feet the more you play in it. Well, at least that is what it feels like. It’s very flexible and moves with your feet as your playing.

For the materials being threaded, they are really durable and protects your lateral movement which goes hand-to-hand with ankle protection.

Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

Fit

 

I recommend going true to size. But if you have an wide-foot, I recommend going up half an size just so your feet don’t feel suffocated unless you prefer that.

The lock-down on the Curry 3’s is very solid due to the lacing pattern on the shoe. The way the lacing is set up is that one side of the loops is higher than the other, so once you lace them up the shoe really wraps around your feet like a burrito.

They added a lot of padding in the tongue and heel area of the shoe to provide comfort for the lacing system. Overall, the shoe fits like a FREAKING glove.

Score: 5.o out of 5.0

Support

The huge Stephen Curry logo on the back of the shoe is actually the entire heel counter. Additionally, they provide little carbon fiber plates on the side of the shoe to keep you from shifting off the bed of the shoe. The out-sole of the shoe is flat which promotes stability. With this setup, your ankle and heel is PROTECTED.

Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

Overall

The Curry line signature basketball shoes are very consistent in making a quality basketball shoe and did a AMAZING job in the design of the Under Armour Curry 3’s. Best of all, they are one of the most ‘Bang for your buck’ or affordable shoes to get as a basketball player. How can you not like Stephen Curry?

Overall Score: 4.9 out of 5.0

 

 


Adidas Dame 3

Damian Lillard is one of the most underrated basketball players in the NBA. He can score with the best of them, makes the right pass to find the open teammate, relentless defender, and most importantly, he puts his team in a position to win.

The Adidas Dame 3 are designed to put all those key qualities on display. This is Damian Lillard third signature shoe and is proven to delivery high quality results.

Let’s discuss more about this “underrated killer” shoe below:

Breakdown Of Adidas Dame 3

Traction

With the Dame 3’s, you got blade traction from top to bottom. This classic traction pattern has been proven effective for years on both dusty and clean basketball courts. On dusty courts, some of the blades may get clogged with a little dirt, so you will have to wipe from time to time.

But when the court is clean, the traction is PERFECT.

Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

Cushion

The cushion features Adidas Bounce and it’s a dual-density setup which is an exterior firm carrier and interior bounce setup.

It’s comfortable on your feet and makes you feel bouncy while providing court-feel. If you like the combination of court-feel and cushion, this shoe is going to supply that for you. No doubt.

Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

Materials

The Dame 3’s feels great when your hooping in them. It uses “Fusemesh” which feels like plastic when the shoes are in your hand. But you don’t feel that when your playing in the shoe, just only in your hand.

Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

Fit

I recommend going true-to-size with the Adidas Dame 3. The lacing system literally locks you in the shoe and gives you that secure fit. However, there was a slight bit of dead space at the tip of my toe and the tip of the shoe. But that just because I like my hooping shoes to fit tight on me.

Score: 4.6 out of 5.0

Support

The bottom of the shoe is flat which promotes stability. The mid-sole provides much of the support on the shoe is because you sit into the mid-sole. It feels really great because it cuffs your foot, provides more stability and structure, and makes your foot feel right at home.

Plus, they included it throughout the entire shoe, just not the front or the heel area.

Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

Overall

The Adidas Dame 3’s is an awesome shoe and it’s one of my favorite Adidas models to play in right now. It provides a little bit of everything: it’s durable, lightweight, great traction, high quality materials, and plenty of cushion. The best part is that it’s AFFORDABLE.

Overall Score: 4.8 out of 5.0


Nike Lebron Soldier 11 (XI)

The Nike Lebron Soldier 11 was built to the specifications of the king himself, you guessed it, Lebron James. Even though they’re a high-top shoe, the Lebron 11’s are lightweight and low-profile while still maintaining firm support for explosive movements.

So you won’t have no problem blowing past your defender or getting up high to slam one down in these guys.

Let’s breakdown the key aspects of this “Fit for a king” shoe:

Breakdown Of Lebron Soldier 11

Traction

The traction on the soldier 11 is not super good, but gets the job done. There was just one small area right underneath the ball of the foot that just had a problem sticking to the court which is where I would place a lot of pressure when playing.

So it just became a little annoying having to constantly wipe my shoes when playing.

Score: 4.2 out of 5.0

Cushion

You have heel and forefoot Zoom Air cushion on these guys.

You actually feel the Zoom Air units when your hooping because they are really thick which gives you that bouncy feeling. But not too bouncy to where you feel off-balance. It feel just right.

Also, they don’t sacrifice court-feel or impact protection which is a HUGE plus.

Score: 4.7 out of 5.0

Materials

The prime materials on the soldier 11 is nylon and mesh. This makes the shoe more breathable so your feet won’t be sweating as much when your playing and your shoes wouldn’t stink up the place when their off your feet.

Additionally, these materials are also very durable. So that is a win-win right there.

Score: 4.6 out of 5.0

Fit

Going true-to-size with these shoes is the way to go. They feel tight when you put on the shoe especially with the traps to secure them down. With that being said, the lock-down on the shoe is GREAT.

The forefoot strap really locks your foot in there and the other 3 straps do a great job of supporting.

The best thing about the straps is that you can adjust them to your liking, so you can make it as tight or lose as you want.

Score: 4.7 out of 5.0

Support

The out-sole of the shoe is designed to match the bottom of a foot which promotes stability. The forefoot and the heel area wrap up and around your foot which cuffs them in there and feels really nice.

With this type of setup, it boosts lateral support and lowers the risk of rolling your ankle.

You are LOCKED-IN at all times once you strap the soldiers down.

Score: 4.8 out of 5.0

Overall

The Nike Lebron Soldier 11 is a very quality and solid shoe. While there the traction could have been better, it doesn’t take away from the other great aspects the shoe brings to the table. This type of shoe is good for all positions, doesn’t matter if your a post player or an guard.

Score: 4.7 out of 5.0


The Bottom Line

You ABSOLUTELY cannot go wrong with picking any of these shoes. They’re all going to provide you with high-quality performance and your going to get the most bang for your buck.

I have my old drose and it is getting old now. I read your list of basketball shoes and this is really informative and helpful. I’m a person who likes to play kyrie style so I might end up buying it. Thank you for sharing this information.

  2. This is a great review, my nephew is a huge basketball player and my sister has a hard time sometimes finding the right shoe to work for him. He has monstrous feet, LOL. She has spent thousands on shoes for him. I will share your review with her so she can ask you the questions to help her find the right shoe and maybe save her some money. Thank you for the great read!

  3. Hii,
    very interesting site especially for basketball players and fans. Your post is very helpful in choosing the best basketball shoe. Basketball is my favorite sports and used to play in a team. I always chose adidas as best bball shoe since i felt more comfortable to play in.
    Loved your website.It is full of energy!!

  4. Hi there! I personally have a Dame 3 and I would say it was fantastic! The traction of it is really good like you mentioned and I felt like I’m more explosive and bouncier on the court! Anyways now I’m thinking to buy a Curry 3 but I’m a big fan of Kyrie Erving so I’m struggling to choose between these two. I know you ranked Curry’s shoes higher in the post but would it be suitable for an explosive guard as well?

    1. You have to find which one works best for you. They both are good for guards and you can’t go wrong with any of them.

  5. I haven’t purchased a pair of “basketball shoes” since grade school. I find that most athletic shoes are mass produced and aren’t made for comfort or sport but sales!

    The Best basketball shoe I ever had was the reebok mid cut above the rims. Best shoe ever produced for ball.

    Great grip and superior comfort. I know a lot of these kids today want to wear their fave players sneakers so this post was great insight into what’s new.

    Best shoes? definitely debatable

    great post

    1. These are the highly rated shoes for basketball in 2017. So it is only right to name them “best shoes” and do a review about them.

  6. I remember playing basketball in high school and we did not have the money as a family to afford a second pair of basketball shoes, but I did see a couple of fellow players do that. I always wondered why? Now I know.
    I truly know what you mean when buying the right basketball shoe is very important to your game, because if you aren’t comfortable, you will not play as well as you would otherwise. Great post and The Nike PG1 really does look like an amazing basketball shoe,

  7. I fit and sell kids shoes and every year there’s a time when they all come in for their basketball shoes. We only carry one or two options, but I’m always looking for what I can recommend to parents who don’t want to spend a ton of money if their kid is going to out grow it. Most of these kids are in adult sizes, so all of these will work. Is there one in particular you would recommend for price that’s popular with kids’ basketball?

    1. The Harden Vol 1 is a great basketball shoe for all ages and different types of basketball players.

  8. Thank you for the reviews, I think I gonna go with the Breakdown Of Harden Vol 1, because I like being aggressive player, and actually make some plays on the inside, another decision might be the Breakdown Of The Curry 3, because of the uncle save function, what would you suggest me to buy for aggressive play between the two?
    thank you very much for your time.

    1. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with either of them. Both shoes are meant for guards. But I would go with the Hardens because they are comfortable and affordable.
