Finding the Right One
Newbie here on the board. Glad to be here.
I am 29 and just recently got back into playing rec ball, and trying to get back into shape to play competetively in some leagues. I am guard and my game is more running off of screens to get my shot than breaking someone down 1 on 1. I make alot of quick cuts off screens , and when I cannot get free outside I go to the post for a few moves. I am not explosive (although I am trying new plyometric work outs that will help that) That being said, Im looking for the right shoe. I own the Jordan 12.5's and they seem to cut into my ankles which is a nuisance. I also own Jordan Mens Star Rising, which I really like but I only have the Carolina Blue / White... but wanting to get some new gear. I need something with a good cushioning system , I have virtually no arch and use gel insoles. I was recently told stay away from the Adiprene System in Adidas, a salesman in ***** Sporting Goods stated the system was like a pillow, at first step it feels great but once the "air" is let out it stays out and gives no support. Not sure if there is any truth to that.
So , all of that being said, if any of you have tried Nike, Adidas, Reebok, or even the new Pony let me know with the information you are given what you would choose... what sneaker would you buy? I want to make an educated selection! Any help is GREATLY appreciated. I have looked in other threads but not alot of help is given and I think shoes are kind of subjective anyways, so anyone in the same lines of game play as mine can give some input on what to buy, thanks again.
