I’ve been testing basketball shoes for nearly 10 years. Here are some of the worst I’ve encountered.
Reflecting back at all the shoes I’ve tested over the years was fun. I can’t believe how many I’ve played in.
I’ve worn nearly every brand and nearly every signature model over the past 10 years — plus, a ton of team models! While looking through them all I decided to name the worst I’ve ever tested. Some are so bad I didn’t even want to reminisce *cough* Reebok Zig Encore *cough*.
While there are a number of sneakers listed, there are a number of sneakers that were not. I can’t remember the year I stopped at, but nothing really recent was discussed. There have been some bad shoes within the past five years, but I wanted to take things way back rather than stick with what’s fresh in my mind.
I do have a list of my favorites from this same time frame so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this look back and let me know if you’ve been around for the entire ride.
