Basketball sneakers aren’t on-trend, but there are several pairs on the market you could wear and still look good.
If hoops kicks are your thing off the court, brands including Nike, Adidas and Puma have plenty of eye-catching looks for you to choose from. Below are seven suggestions for basketball sneakers that look good both on and off the court.
Nike Kobe 1 Protro
NBA icon Kobe Bryant’s debut signature sneaker with the Swoosh gets updated with upgraded tech and details, making this eye-catching look ideal on and off the court.
Adidas T-Mac Millennium
The Three Stripes dropped a new sneaker bearing the name of retired NBA great Tracy McGrady, which the brand said is built for his style of game. For non-ballers, it’s built to look great off the courts, too.
Puma Clyde Court
The first court-ready offering from Puma in roughly 20 years is also a great-looking shoe. It boasts an engineered knit upper and two of the brand’s technology for top-tier cushioning (Ignite foam and Nrgy beads).
Nike Zoom KD 11
The latest sneaker for NBA superstar Kevin Durant features two cushioning technologies from the brand — React foam and Zoom Air— and a light and strong Flyknit upper.
Adidas Marquee Boost
This eye-catching performance look pairs a mesh upper with a padded collar with responsive Boost cushioning.
Air Jordan 33
Aside from looking good, the new signature shoe for NBA icon Michael Jordan features an appealing new technology: FastFit lacing, which tightens the shoe with a slight pull of a loop.
Nike LeBron 16
LeBron James’ latest sneaker features Nike’s Max Air and Zoom Air cushioning technologies, a lightweight and strong BattleKnit 2.0 upper and a tongue with a built-in gusset to make them easy to put on and take off.
