Default Basketball Shoes and Flat Feet

Looking for a pair of BBall kicks with maximum stability for my flat feet. Not to mention i'm heavy so support would be great too!

PLEASE HELP

I know you hear me say this a lot, but the Supernatural fits in perfectly for that. Great all-around support (generous on the ankle cushioning too) plus they have great arch support. I stopped using my arch supports and my feet feel so much better.

i believe that adidas supernatural commander are the best choice. My mate has the same problem as you, he's 6'4 power player, and he just loves them. They're a bit on the stiff side tho.

Quite the contrary. It took me next to no time to break in to mine. The sole is really flexible. It may take some getting used to the pods, but they ain't stiff at all. I'm also a F/C in my varsity team (although I just stand at 5'10 ) and I love how they feel. Great traction too.

1) It has great arch support (as I said, I even stopped playing with my custom made ones) and the shroud and ankle strap lock down the shoe greatly.

2) The Creators are 13 ounces, a hair lighter than the Hyperdunk.

3) They're not ugly. Lots of people on the court ask me "Hey dude, where'd you get those, man?".

Iunno. Some people won't buy my advice just 'cause they want to stick with more popular brands. I'm not saying you are one of those people though. The few times I see you post here, you're a cool poster. Just saying before the those dudes come into the thread.

i'm not into brands. I have 1 pair of jordans, i wear Brooks Addiction 8 on a daily basis due to my severe flat feet.

I had the old TS bounce commanders but the there is virtually no arch support, its pretty much flat

Yeah, I had those too. They felt nice cause of the ClimaCool, but I just could not stand it being so flat. They also ran pretty big, no? Funny though, I used them quite a lot but the Bounce sole is still stiff. I'm trying to sell them.

I have the Supernatural Creator (latest version of the Creator), the Bounce Commanders (2nd edition of the Commanders) and the Illrhana Response (trying to sell the last 2 in my friend's village ). Go with the Supernatural. Either would be good. The only real difference is that the Commander has a higher cut and more ankle support, but they have the same arch support, which performs very well. I've only played in the SN Creator, though, as it's the only SN shoe I have, but most of the people in the Adidas thread I go to in another forum say that the Commander is equally as great a performance basketball shoe.

Anybody know anything about them or own a pair?

We were sponsored by Adidas back in college so we had to wear the 8īs....I hated them ....didnt find them comfortable at all...so unless theyve revamped them, I wouldnt recommend them.
