Can you use these to play basketball?
Probably. Upper is structured enough to give you the support needed. There may not be enough forefoot cushioning to provide impact protection for all the jumping/landing in basketball. Traction should hold up really well on outdoor courts.
I play with cushioned insoles so impact protection is really an issue for me. I’m really interested in its traction. Are they good in hardwood? Does it have a great bite? Do they squeak?
Haven’t tried them on hardwood but the lugs on bottom are fairly thick since they’re made to be turf shoes. Squeaking doesn’t actually matter to how well a shoe sticks to the floor. Studies have proven squeaking is just a comfort thing for people used to the sound. These do have solid bite outdoors on concrete and turf.
Oh, that’s good to hear! Been looking for a good shoe to play ball outdoors, but how is the lateral support and containment?
