Title: Basketball Shoes Help
Post by: valkorum on October 31, 2017, 03:03:58 PM
Hi there

I need a new pair of basketball shoes and have a budget of about $200.  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Here are a few I am looking at

Jordan B Fly (https://www.footlocker.com.au/en/p/jordan-b-fly-men-shoes-45991?v=244103630604#!searchCategory=men/shoes/basketball)

Jordan Formula 23 (https://www.footlocker.com.au/en/p/jordan-formula-23-men-shoes-45337?v=244103682704#!searchCategory=men/shoes/basketball)

I've used a pair of Curry's for the past 3 years and they have been epic, awesome support and enough flexibility with the high ankle protection.  Not sure how the quality of the latest ones are as I had a look at a pair and they feel a lot stiffer but didn't actually try them on.  I'm interested to try the new Lebron 15's to be honest, but prob outside that price point.  Not a fan of Jordan shoes to play in, too heavy and tend to be stiff as well.  KD's suck if you have wide feet as do Kyrie's.  Kobes are pretty good too, depends if you want high tops or low cut.  Have heard very good things about some of the Adidas shoes especially the Lillards, but haven't tried them myself.  I'd say Adidas would be under $150 for the older styles.

Not a fan of the Kobes or Lillard because I don't like a low cut boot. 

I really wanted to wait another month or two before having to buy new boots and therefore be able to spend a little more but the air pocket on my Nike Retro's burst last night so I don't have a choice.

I really like the Nike Air Foamposite Pro but they are about $340ish and out of my budget right now.


I might be able to squeeze up to the KD10's at $220ish

Are you located in Perth?  You could always join the PSS Marketplace on Facebook which is the Perth Sneaker society, loads of guys sell off their deadstock at discounted prices.  Pair of Kobe IX Elite's just gone up for $160.
