Whether you're a dominant big man, slashing guard, deadly shooter or somewhere in between, your shoes should fit your personal style. The look of the shoe is the first thing people notice when you step on the court, so they should reflect who you are and how you play. That's why we provide the most styles and colors in the market so you can find the shoe that fits you. The features you need in a shoe are determined by your style of play and your position. Generally, smaller players will play in low tops or mids because they promote quickness, agility, and abrupt directional changes. Larger players will typically play in mids, mids with an ankle brace, or high tops. These alternatives provide the ankle support and stability that bigger players need around the rim without limiting their athleticism, quickness, and explosiveness.
Basketball shoes continue to become more advanced from a technical aspect. Companies are finding innovative ways to make shoes more stable, comfortable, and safe, while making them lighter and promoting greater athleticism on the court. Eastbay is proud to carry a large selection of the most innovative and performance-enhancing basketball shoes available. Found a pair you want this holiday?
