Default Best Jordan shoe for a guard?

I currently play in the Kobe IV's, but after spraining my ankle multiple times, I have decided to invest in some high tops. I play the 2 and sometimes the 3, and looking for the best Jordans to PLAY in, I don't really care how good they look. I don't want to spend more than $80... Don't care how old they are really, as long as they are comfortable and not too heavy.

Or should I just go with some Nike high tops? If so, which ones?

Thanks in advance.

edit: also thinking about the Nike Hyperdunks, which are pretty much the high top version of the Kobe's.

I like to recommend the Tony Parkers. My favorite shoe to ball in (and I have the Kobes and Hyperdunks). I initially got them because of their similarity to the original Paytons... but they turned out to be my favorite ball shoe too.

Lightweight and durable, with fantastic low ankle support. I bought them when they were $110+, and another pair when they dropped to $80. At $70 that shoe is a steal.

Get Nike Hyperdunks, imo the best shoe you can get if you don't mind paying the high price. They're light, have ankle support and are very comfortable, not to mention they look awesome

I've made a list of shoes to check out at the mall tomorrow.

Jordan 1 Alpha
Jordan 1 Retro
Jordan Flight 45
Jordan Icons
Nike Hyperize (these are only 70 bucks..)
Nike Hyperfuse
Nike Hyperdunks
Nike Air Max Hyped
Nike Air Max Go


But yeah the Hyperfuse has great reviews and I don't mind paying an extra 20 if they are worth it and last a while.

hi buddy i am very sorry for your unpleasant experiences with Zoom Kobe. and at request. Air Jordan V, Air Jordan6 Rings, Air Jordan 1. would be my recommendation. personally, i always wear Jordan V when i am playing game. It is colouway maynot be as attractive as some other shoes, but they do have a reliable performance. If you are snot satisfied with them all, possibly, you can find some other Jordan shoes at my site: killersneakers

I would recommend the Air Jordan XII's they are the best for guards without a doubt.
