1. Nike LeBron 15

2. Adidas Dame 4


The Adidas Dame 4 is a strong contender for the best hoops shoe out now under $120. Its Bounce cushioning adds reliable comfort without the added cost of the brand’s Boost material, while the upper is breathable and flexible but still supportive enough for long stretches on the hardwood.

3. Nike Kobe A.D.


These days, it’s not often that you’ll see Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball in a pair of sneakers other than his own Big Baller Brand model, but one pair that Ball has been frequently spotted in is the Kobe A.D., and for good reason — it carries on the high-performance low-top legacy of NBA legend Kobe Bryant’s signature line.

4. Under Armour Curry 4


Sneakerheads have admittedly had a love-hate relationship with Stephen Curry’s last few Under Armour sneakers, but the Curry 4 is a return to form and a strong performer on the court, too.
