Basketball shoes are specifically designed for the intensity of the game. Sports scientists at the University of Utah point out that on average, basketball players switch direction every two seconds and run 105 short sprints every game. With constant jumping, starting and stopping, basketball shoes are designed to act as shock absorbers and provide ankle stability with the flexibility to allow players to move laterally. As such, basketball shoes are much bulkier than running shoes.
