The Top Ten

NIKE Hyperdunk
The best basketball shoe in the world! Nothing can beat its lightness, durability and design!
Light with great ankle support. Absorbs impact after a couple seconds in the air...
Light weight and not compromising the comfort fit and agility to move faster. Material use are very durable

2NIKE Zoom Kobe III
Very comfortable definitely recommend it expensive but worth it I would use it all the time such as the kobe vi the new on because of the cool black mamba designs snake scales overall its nice outside and inside

Nike Zoom LeBron V

4NIKE Air Jordan XX3
Any Jordans are good and in my opinion they are the most comfortable, stylish, and have the best quality. Once I bought a pair Converse basketball shoes and the quality was not satisfactory
AIR JordanS ARE SO GOOD. They are probably the best shoe ever made, way better than the hyperdunk. Inspired by the best player ever.
Jordan is the one he make the best shoes I telling you that and he better then durant or james you know

5NIKE Air Jordan I

these are the most stylish basketball shoes ever. why would anyone not like to have these kings
The first ever pair of air jordans, first released in 1985.

one of the only basketball shoes that CONVERSE makes


I think these are really great sneakers and am looking to buy them unfortunatly every website I have searched for them they all either seem to be soldout or do not have size 9. If any one knows a website where I can purchase these Sneakers in the same color as the picture on the right I would really appreciate it. My email is: Thanks again in advance.
Ultimate! One words enough to explain!

7NIKE Air Huarache 08
Besides awesome style, this hoe makes you feel amazing and builds confidence to storm the court!
Sick! Must not be cheap though... :/

8Nike Lunar Hyperdunk
It is currently the best shoe in the world, it is very light, it has every quality of being the best in the top ten. The angle support is awesome and so is the design. No one can beat this shoe.
Just beautiful, the best shoes in the world. Definitely.
Best shot in the game and for style and I love how the nike sign is
[Newest]There great shoes what so ever

9Adidas Crazy 8 Shoes

They are from a German company. end of argument

10NIKE Air Jordan Fusion 5
a great re-release of the Air Jordan 5's!


The Contenders

11Nike Zoom Air KD
KD's are Kevin Durant's signature shoe: there are currently five existing models. The KD iV is a staple in sneaker collections and had a great run last year. The KD V is another great shoe. Apart from the sneakerhead aspect, the shoe (the fives) have great ankle support, good traction, and are lightweight. There are also many great signature colorways that release every year such as Aunt Pearl, N7, All-Stars, Easters, Christmas, Nerf, Year of the (... ), etc.

12Air Jordan 2012

13Dunkman Powerhouse

14Diadora Mi Basket '84

15NIKE Hyperfuse
These shoes are the best by far to me and I am really looking forward to seeing Hyperfuse 2
Nike hyperfuse feels really comfortable at the bottom of the shoe plus its light weight so a lot of agility comes out when yhu put them on

16Lebron 9

25ADIDAS Bounce Artillery

26Adidas Mega Softcell BHM
Really light, feels great, looks awesome! Its got everything


27Adidas Adizero Crazy Light 9.8's
The Lightest Ever...9.8 ounces made by Derrick Rose himself last years NBA MVP... Imagine playing with your bare feet but with support, cushion, grip, etc.
Really good grip and light shoes. You can jump higher and move faster than you ever dream of.

Also preety decent ankle support and durability.

28Air Jordan XI 1996
These are the best shoes for dunking. Good quality and wore by the legends of Michael Jordan. Also, that the best shoes ever to slam dunk ten feet or higher. Efficiently, that's a plus 11 dunk. These are the greatest shoes of basketball. So, you can do the best if you could. It voted number 27 best basketball shoes of all time.
XI's are one of the classic Air Jordans and are considered by many to be the best in the series. Jordan himself favored the XI's and was seen with them the most. Great shoe!
This shoe should be number 1

29Adidas Adizero Rose 3

30NIKE Zoom Kobe II
Sorry but, the truth is... This one is better than KOBE I shoes
Did not have lebron tens so I guess I will vote this

31Nike Foamposite
Foams are bad ass

32Lotto Basketball Sports Shoes

33Adidas AdiZero Crazy Light 2
They are crazy light

34Nike Zoom Kobe VII

35Converse Chuck Taylors
These are the "old school" shoes that Wilt Chamberlain wore when he scored 100 points in a single game, and also when he scored 60 ponts and had 40 rebounds in a single game, and also when he had a "Double Triple Double" with over 20 points, over 20 rebounds, and over 20 assists in a single game; he also scored several "Quadruple Doubles", with over 40 points and 40 rebounds in a single game.

36Air Jordan X (10)

37Adidas Rose 3.0
This shoe is just great! The ankle support is amazing and the material feels like a cloud. Don't get me wrong, this shoe is nice, but you have some saving to do at 160 dollars compared to the Hyperdunk's 139.99.

38Nike Lebron 11
Best shoes in world but expensive
This deserves 10 or something

39Spine Bionic Under Armour
Great traction great everything thinks for putting this up sqrew nike hyper dunk

40Fila DLS Game 2

41Converse Acropolis Mid
Great lightweight shoe that really needs a rerelease.

42Nike Air Foamposite One - "Weatherman"
Why the PhUcKk are these number 40
They are the most aewsome shoes

43Nike Air Mag
Good traction not as good as under armour spine bionic or under armour anatomix spawen good shoe though

44Adidas D Rose 5
Very nice shoes! Killer!

45Super Fly 3

46KD 7

47Air Jordan XIII
One of the most comfortable and best kicks to hoop in. They seem to give a sort of momentum and has great ankle support. The mattress mesh is a clean material that repels dirt (the leather equivalent on the "He Got Games" has the same properties) and the shoe tends to last for years.

48Reebok Shaq
Nice shoe I put this up

49Nike Kobe 8
Best shoes ever! I got a great deal on these shoes, paying only 70 bucks at an Nike outlet store. Little did I know they would be the best shoes I'd ever purchase. Due to the super-thick lunarlon insoles, the Kobe 8's provide maximum confort and super-sleek style. The colorways are not only eye-catching but also smartly designed. I've had many basketball shoes ( Including 2012 and 2013 hyperdunks, kd6s, and kd v elites) The Kobe 8s have the best traction out of any shoe I've ever worn. I give these shoes 9.8 stars out of ten. My only complaint is the crunching noise when you walk (which can't be heard in a game anyways. BEST SHOES EVER!

50Air Jordan XX8

51Air Jordan VI

52Anatomix Spawn Under Armour
