Default Outdoor Shoes

Basketball season is coming up and i really need some outdoor basketball shoes. Obviously, i want them to be pretty cheap since they are gonna get messed up because i play hard.

I am already set for indoor shoes with the hyper dunks. The shoe i was thinking of getting is one of the nike shock series. Any suggestions?

Damn! You got the Hyperdunks, lucky

Umm, Get the Shaq ones, they are like ultra cheap and work fine

Or Big Bens, those are like 20 bucks and still good

Sorry that i forgot to mention this. I would definitely prefer nike or adidas shoes due to the fact that i have been with those name brand shoes and they have done very well for me both indoor and outdoor. Thanks and sorry about that.

If you arent looking for a amazing pair, just go to a store with decent Nike/Adidas selling and find a durable pair, if its just going to get beaten, i wouldnt worry too much about a percise name

ok thanks. I mean i don't want the shoes to like get all messed up after 2 weeks of use. I ball A LOT more than other people. It is definitely my love and shoes are definitely a factor especially when playing outside.

What i am gonna do is go to foot locker or some sporting store and try on some shoes. If all fails, i will order a pair of nike shox because i have tried them on before and they are fantastic. A little heavy but they will do the job.

Shox are a good choice imo. I've worn a few pairs of shox outdoors - in my opinion, the extra cushioning really makes a difference - mainly in knee soreness levels after playing for 3 hours or so. Plus I've never sprained an ankle in shox.

The main problem is probably potential wear-and-tear issues with the sole, but my current pair have been going strong for about one year. Fyi, I've been playing outdoor ball on asphalt, an average of 1.5 times a week, with a playing style that involves lots of directional changes and a decent (37) vert to pound those shoes on the takeoffs and landings.

Maybe some Shox spotlights would be more durable. But personally, I'd just get the cheapest pair of Shox you can find, preferably one with 4 shox columns instead of the whole foot (in the interests of weight). I just found a fuckin worm in the apple I was munching on. Good luck with the shoes
