Top Men’s Basketball Shoes

Adidas Lightem Up 2
Adidas Light Em Up 2
The Adidas Light Em Ups are arguably one of the best basketball shoes for the price. These shoes sell anywhere from $50-$75 dollars on Amazon, a good deal considering the overall quality and style. This particular shoe, unlike many others, opens from one side, making it easy to place your foot inside. The fit is “true to size”, meaning you shouldn’t need to buy a size up or down. Players looking for excellent traction and solid ventilation should give these shoes a try.


Under Armor ClutchFit Drive 3
The ClutchFit Drive is a comfortable shoe that offers excellent ankle support and cushioning. While Under Armour is known for the Curry 2 and Curry 3, the ClutchFit Drive 3 is cheaper and arguably just as good. These shoes feel comfortable on the foot, but the insole does take up a lot of room. For that reason, it might be beneficial to purchase these shoes half a size up from your normal size. In short, these shoes provide good traction and feel secure without being too restrictive.


Nike KD 9
The Nike KD 9 is an expensive shoe, but offers a good quality for the price. The outsole of the shoe has a honeycomb design for traction. The toe, unlike many basketball shoes, is made with Flyknit material, allowing for greater flexibility and ventilation. The KD 9 fits best “true to size”, meaning you shouldn’t need to buy a size up or down. If you’re looking for a shoe that is both secure and keeps your feet cool, try the KD 9.
