Everyone prefers their own specific style and look when choosing a shoe, but when it comes to basketball shoes there are a few that stand out in terms of functionality and comfort. Although basketball games are won with hand and arm skills, if your feet can’t keep up with the competition, then there’s little hope for you. In this article we’re going to be taking a look at a few of the shoes that truly stand out in the year of 2013, and hopefully give you a better idea of what to look for when you’re choosing the best pair for your needs.
The first basketball shoe that stands out above all for 2013 is the amazing Air Jordan XX8’s from Nike. These are one of the first in-line sneakers from the Jordan brand that use the Roman & Arabic models in quite some time (previously used in the XX3 model). These basketball shoes were first released back in February during the All-Star Weekend and held a hefty $250 price. However, they were first spotted long before that when Russell Westbrook wore the XX8 sneakers against the Brooklyn Nets on December 4th of last year. During an interview he’s quoted staying “it’s very light and it’s very comfortable.” So if you’re in the market for a basketball shoe that will remain comfortable during the whole game and provide you with stability on the court, these are definitely a must.
Our next best shoe for 2013 in the basketball world goes to Adidas. The Adidas D Rose 3 basketball shoe provides players with an extremely solid lightweight shoe with many other great features. If you’re wondering about how the shoe will hold up under pressure, then rest assured because the shoe was designed using synthetic, which provides ultra-durability and remains sturdy through the entire game for a great supportive fit. Fit is the next best thing about this shoe, because the material allows for a perfect fit for all different foot shapes. You can look to spend upwards of $160 for this one; however the traction and cushion quickly make up for the price. After a few games with this shoe, it will feel like it’s a natural part of your foot.
These are just a few of the great basketball shoes of 2013. If you’re not satisfied with these then make sure to check out many of the other great shoes such as the Kobe 8 SYSTEM, LeBron X Elite, and even the Nike KD V; all great shoes on and off the court that provide you with great performance and an attractive style.
