On the streets, basketball footwear has largely been replaced by modern and retro-infused runners and stylish trainer options. This can be attributed to shifting trends both within the industry and in street style, but don’t get it confused: there are still plenty of great b-ball designs out there.
If you’re looking for a pair that you’ll be able to get serious mileage out of this fall/winter, consider a pair that’s versatile enough to be a go-to choice off the court, too. This includes lifestyle-friendly colors, cuts and materials that will pair just as well with trousers as they will your team’s uniform.
