Best Women’s Basketball Shoes

Looking to step up your hoops game this season? Having a quality pair of basketball shoes is essential. To simplify your search, FN has compiled our favorite picks for women providing support, comfort and style.

1. Nike Hyperdunk 2017 TB

Nike’s Hyperdunk 2017 for women features updated Lunar cushioning that’s softer and lighter for running and impact.

Pros: Unlike newer models, this style features a shorter half-inch bootie construction for a more minimalistic look and feel. Flywire cables wrap your foot fora snug fit and dynamic lockdown. The woven jacquard upper is airy, while the rubber outsole pattern enhances multi-directional traction. These come in three colorways: black, white and a bright blue if you like to stand out.

Cons: This style runs on the smaller side so some may want to size up.

Cons: If you have wider feet, you might not want to go with these.

This model offers a compression-molded EVA midsole for a lightweight feel that responds to your foot’s movement.
