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.

How to choose a Basketball Footwear?

The goal of performance basketball shoes is to facilitate powerful cutting and jumping while reducing non-contact injury rate. Midsole stiffness, height of the collar, and foam durometer are all important considerations for the best basketball shoe for you.
