The Best Basketball Shoe of 2019… So Far

Is this the best basketball shoe of 2019 so far?

We’re almost at the halfway through 2019 which means it’s almost time to list the best basketball shoes of the year so far. However, there is one shoe that shines pretty bright when compared to the rest.

I’m still not 100 percent certain that this shoe is my personal top pick so far. I actually have these listed alongside two other models as my potential top pick at the midway point. But when considering what the majority of commenters say they prefer in their basketball shoe, this one might be the one is worthy of their attention.

Again, this is not the only shoe that is this good, but it’s one of the top shoes. I’ll be finishing up testing a few other models during these next few weeks in order to put together our official best basketball shoes of 2019 so far list.

In the meantime, let me know your thoughts on what I feel is one of the best of 2019 thus far.


  1. Wonder how these would feel with the flightposite insole? I put the FP insole into my Kobe 1 Protros and holy shit it’s zoom heaven.

    1. Not sure you can put in another insole for KD12’s since that was the new thing Nike did; have zoom air as the insole and they sowed it into the sides of the upper.

  2. I’m here trying to hold out for Retro IV’s and maybe the TS1

    And Nightwing is here making me ever so closer to going to the mall for these.

  3. Also, these are already on sale on the nike site with the code SPORT30 for $30 off.
