With the Way of Wade brand, officially established in 2012, comes a repertoire of basketball shoes that have only gotten better and better with every year.

Although some would say they borrow designs from other brands too often, their top-tier performance is undeniable. And that’s why we’ve created our list of the current Best Way of Wade Basketball Shoes.

Best Way of Wade Basketball Shoes Overall 2024

Way of Wade All City 12

The Way of Wade All City 12 is a very solid all-around performance model with no real weak points, and several strong points. The full-length Boom cushioning is very well balanced, the multipurpose traction is excellent, and containment and support are top-notch as well. But what makes these a great pickup is the versatility factor, making it one of the best Way of Wade basketball shoes you can buy.

Way of Wade 11

The Way of Wade 11 is another impressive flagship model from Way of Wade and an improvement on an already great model in the Way of Wade 10. With the Way of Wade 11 you’ll be getting reliable traction with a unique, story-driven outsole design that promises to excel indoors. You’ll also get exceptional responsiveness and stability from the full-length Boom midsole and EVA foot frame carrier and a much-improved material setup. Stability and lockdown should also be great and that “customized” carbon fiber shank plate will be elite. This is the best-looking and feeling Way of Wade model to date. Read full review. Price: $225

Way of Wade 10

Again, Way of Wade shoes in general are great for wide-footers because of their wider last. The Way of Wade 10 is lightweight and offers great cushion, provided by a dual-density foam setup: Cloud Foam and Pebax. It feels like Zoom Air took steroids and was put under your feet. Simply put, this is one heck of a shoe to play in. If you’re a fan of DWade or want to try non-mainstream shoes, this sneaker is for you. The upper is light and breathable, and they fit true to size. A bit pricey but worth it. Read full review.

Price: $199- $240

WAY OF WADE SHADOW 5 V2 REVIEW

Wade Shadow 5 V2

The Way of Wade Shadow 5 V2 is a solid all-around performance basketball shoe, especially considering that it retails for just $120. The traction is trustworthy and will hold up very well outdoors, the cushioning provides a well-balanced and fluid ride on court, the support features will keep you locked in and reactive on court, and the material setup is elite. It is one of the most well-ventilated shoes we have ever tested, making it a great option for hooping outdoors during summer. Read the full review. Price: $120

Way of Wade Son of Flash

The Way of Wade Son of Flash was an easy pick as the best outdoor basketball shoe of the year, as it is one of the few shoes on the market today built specifically for outdoor use, and it is an excellent performance model on top of that.

With the Way of Wade Son of Flash, you get aggressive and resilient traction, very nice and reactive cushioning, and a well-built layered upper that is built to do battle outdoors for hours on end. See the full review. Price: $135

Way of Wade 808 3

The Way of Wade 808 3 promises to be one of the best guard shoes for the third straight year. You’re getting a great, low profile, speedy cushioning setup, top-tier traction, and support features, and a versatile shoe that will work equally well indoors and outdoors, all for the very reasonable price of $119. Our recommendation is to go with the “normal” version instead of the Ultra version. Read the full review. Price: $119

Way of Wade All City 11 V2

The Way of Wade All City 11 V2 is virtually identical to the original model, which is a very good thing. The All City 11 V2 features an updated upper and enhanced lockdown, but, at the end of the day, it’s still the same very well-balanced, do-it-all hoop shoe, that the original All City 11 was. It is also a model that will work great for the immense majority of players out there, making it an easy choice for those who want to try their first Way of Wade model. In the $150 price range, there really aren’t many shoes out there that will give you the same on-court performance, versatility, and all-around value as the Way of Wade All City 11 V2.

Way of Wade Flash

The Wade Flash should be a solid on-court performer. This model doesn’t feature anything groundbreaking, or particularly exciting, but everything it does feature will work well on court, especially for smaller and more nimble hoopers. There’s also the very reasonable price tag of $99. At that price point, this model becomes all the more attractive and offers a good amount of bang for your buck. If you’re looking for a good, low-profile, and reactive budget basketball shoe that can handle outdoor play, this will be a great option. Read the full review. Price: $99

Way of Wade Fission 9

The Way of Wade Fission 9 is a niche performance basketball shoe. It is not a bad shoe per se, it’s just not built for everyone. If you’re looking for a stable, tough, and secure outdoor basketball shoe, the Fission 9 has you covered. As far as indoor play goes, as long as lateral traction is not an issue, you can expect the same. But this is definitely not the fluid, comfy, all-around performance model the Fission 8 was, which, admittedly is disappointing. Read the full review. Price: $120

Best Outdoor Way of Wade Basketball Shoes 2023

Way of Wade All City 11 V2

The reason they are so great for outdoor use is the TUFF RB outsole which is super durable and super grippy, and the use of full-length Boom for cushioning. In the $150 price range, there really aren’t many shoes out there that will give you the same on-court performance, versatility, and all-around value as the Way of Wade All City 11 V2.
