The Best Basketball Shoes

At WearTesters, we review the Best Basketball Shoes available. We regularly update this page to feature the highest performing, currently available basketball shoes. We’ve also reviewed many other shoes that didn’t make this page.  The shoes listed are in no particular order, and the picks change often. Check back any time you’re in the market for new basketball shoes.

For details on methodology and how to understand the ratings, see the detailed description at the bottom of the page.

Keep in mind that all of these shoes will accommodate any position or player as long as the shoe in question meets your specifications or requirements. Detailed information on each shoe is featured in its respective performance review. Performance reviews feature an in depth look at each shoe’s pros and cons, price, weight, technology, and other performance specifics. Click on the image or link to read the full performance review for each shoe.

If a model isn’t featured it’s either because the model has yet to be tested/reviewed or because we feel it does not belong among the current top basketball shoes.
