One of many successful collaborations between Dwyane Wade and shoemaker Li-Ning, the Way of Wade, or WOW 2.0, features a CMEVA foam body for extra bounce and cushioning as well as an innovative lacing system that lets players customise the laces to achieve ideal support throughout the upper foot. Available in several dynamic colourways, players can sport Blue Camo and Iceman along with neutrals in grey and black.
The Adidas CrazyQuick 2.0 features a Puremotion midsole that works with the natural structure of the foot to enhance traction and speed. A wave formation extends up and through the upper, securing the foot while also adding a visual accent that plays off the Adidas three-stripe logo. Players also get optimal stability thanks to the shoe's sprint frame construction and heel stabiliser.
These Nikes are as stunning in their visual design as they are in their engineering. Flywire cables suspended throughout the upper offer intense stability and support, while the eye-catching sunburst design means they are real statement-makers on and off the court.
High-efficiency elastic at the forefoot and shock absorbers at the heel create an optimal balance in the Peak TP1, Tony Parker's endorsement shoe for Peak Sports Canada. The result is enhanced responsiveness on the toe for fast cuts on the court. A highly supportive design stabilises the ankle, while an outrigger ensures that players do not roll their ankles when attempting fast moves.
Designed after one of the all-time greats, the Kobe 9 Elite from Nike delivers an innovative one-piece Flyknit upper that is as strong as steel and as light as a feather. The sole features Nike Lunarlon cushioning for soft impact on the hardwood and responsiveness when players need explosive movement.
With the look of heavy armour and a construction so light players can achieve new highs, the LeBron 11 is a perfect reflection of James himself. A Hyperposite construction and the PU-based foam in these Nike shoes make the upper breathable and sturdy, and the turquoise, mint, and black colour combo with hints of neon pink hail to James' Miami days.
From the player who innovated the game and from the shoes he made famous comes the Air Jordan XX8 SE. Nike Zoom Air compartments at the heel and forefoot give players responsive cushioning, while a faceted outsole ensures the best traction for cuts and quick moves.
A shoe that can handle the big man himself, the Reebok Shaq Attaq IV features a leather and mesh upper, as well as Pump P107 technology in the collar to ensure the most comfortable fit. The herringbone outsole provides players with reliable traction on grainy blacktop or polished court.
A retro dream revived from the 1990s, the Converse Aerojam features a leather, synthetic, and mesh upper, along with a support system in the heel and a Velcro strap that helps players feel locked in and ready for anything. Colourways on these Converse athletic shoes include an all-white version and a bright red-and-blue combo.
Ideal for shooting guards and power forwards, the Jordan Melo M10 has Flight Plate technology at its core, giving players rapid response to every muscle movement. The Dynamic Fit System in the upper locks down on the foot while still allowing it to move as naturally as possible. Finally, a TPU heel counter delivers stability in the outsole.
