Default Point Guard Shoes

Hello, I'm a pretty new Basketball player, but this year, I am motivated but most of all determined.

I'm 14, moved from Aus to New Zealand and I'm looking for some good shoes (Probably from footlocker) for a newbie Point Guard.. Nothing too rare and expensive, just simple, medium priced shoes that work.

Thanks very much for reading this..

Im a point guard and I love the huarache series also its take down versions. I'm also planning to buy the new kobe's since its very lightweight.

Other guards I know likes the Zoom BB and uptempo series

Look at the discount bins for any older model Answers. Those were bred for PG's.
And 1 also makes cheap kicks for mobilty and durability.

i find mid or lower-cut high tops to be best, let the big guys wear the ankle swallowers, zappos.com footlocker.com footaction.com ebay.com all can service you a very decent pair of sneakers for 30 bucks- check the sale areas or just specify your search to the cheaper prices. zappos is especially good because they pay for shipping both ways (if they don't fit, you can swap them up or down a size for nothing) i've had my share of expensive and inexpensive basketball shoes and i really don't think there's much difference, i would avoid getting the old school adidas or converse with the hard soles, they look great but they hurt. obviously you're 14 and can probably figure out this next tip on your own but don't run too hard/long your first couple times out in new kicks, break them in, avoid blisters or ankle turns.
my new york city blacktop ball days were spent in and1s (which are usually cheaper than the major brands) and they never did me wrong. if money's no object get some nasty technology feather-light shoes that dry your socks while you play, but if i remember 14 right, 60 bucks is a lot of money, so shop around and find something you like that looks comfy. also remember to pass the ball, you're a point guard, distribute, if you find yourself playing like BD, switch to the 2 and save us all the headache. go get em tiger

For a point guard, id recommend Kobe's 2k5 series.... If you can still find them in none branded stores like I did you'll get them for about $50 They feel good and are durable.

here ya go, 30 bucks. they're 100 on zappos still. converse makes a good shoe, they aren't obnoxiously flashy (no dwayne wade pun intended).
