Default Best basketball shoe

I know this is a hard one but I've been looking for some new bball shoes. Ones that I have checked out I like are Lebron V's, Hyperdunks 2013, CP3, Derrick rose's. I am currently using some Wades converse and I hate them they suck, and the ones before I used were adidas. So looking at what others wear to get an idea of what I might want to check out. So please list the shoes you like to play in or like to play in the most. All shoes considered are 175$ and under. thanks.

I don't play basketball. I wear them to match the rest of my gear. With that being said, all of my Jordan XI's are my favorite.

CP3 VI Supernova.

My Basketball shoe of preference. I play point guard, they are light, have terrific traction and are sexy!!

Jordan CP3.VI AE - Men's - Basketball - Shoes - Black/White/Game Royal/Sport Red/Club Pink


Warning: I love them but the front paint on the toes wear off with all the moves and toe drags I make. Could just be because of my style of play though.

Kobe's are the best by far imo. Once I started using low top bball shoes I never went back. Kobe v through ix have all been spectacular. I think Lebrons and hyperdunks are overrated and I would never buy any Adidas bball shoe. If you have any questions I work with shoes a bunch so feel free to pm me. Good luck.

My varsity team got team shoes this year - Nike Hyperdunks, primarily white with black logo. I really liked them.

Hyperdunks are good. I don't like playing in the bigger LeBrons or any Durants. Depends on your preference, but I like light shoes that still have a lot of ankle support (so none of the new Kobes).

Im an adult and I usually wear hightops as I need ankle support and dont wear ankle braces that often even tho I should. Any advice or help would be good.

I to like the lightweight shoes and am not really a big fan of heavy shoes. Im looking for a nice pair because the wades I have suck and dont have any traction indoor.

Gotcha. I would highly suggest the Kobe 9's. They look slightly ridiculous but they are undoubtedly the best basketball shoe I have ever used, plus they have the ankle support. If money is a issue then hyperdunks are good. I would definitely advise you from staying away from those cp3's though. I have heard some complaints on their quality. Good luck!

Jordan 1 Flight's allow you to have great footwork and they are VERY comfortable, which in my opinion is what counts most for athletic sneakers, or just sneakers in general. And they are at a very good price rn. Hope this helps.
