Best of the best. That's all there is to it.

LeBron, Durant, Kobe, Vince Carter, Anthony Davis, Kyrie, Paul George. That's naming just a few of the great basketball athletes that wear Nike.

I have a pair for basketball and school. They are so comfortable. I love them.

I'd recommend this brand.

Great in all fields: style, durability, science, and they have the best basketball player endorsers.


2 Air Jordan

Man, why isn't Jordan right up behind Nike? These shoes are easily the second best.

They're comfortable, stylish, and fit your feet perfectly. No wonder they have the best athletes in the game endorsing their product.

Air Jordans are comfy, cool, and stylish. These are the only basketball shoes I have been wearing for the past 3 years.

Not the same ones, of course!

Better than Adidas and better than Nike. Very comfortable and look nice.

Great value for your money. Very reliable and durable, yet still comfortable and stylish.

If you want a good basketball shoe for the amount of money you pay, go with Adidas.

Inexpensive, high quality, comfortable, stylish, and sometimes classic.

All around a very good shoe brand, and any shoe you buy from them is excellent.

Adidas are amazing shoes. Their basketball shoes and high-tops are amazing.

4 Under Armour Under Armour, Inc. is an American sports equipment company that manufactures footwear, sports and casual apparel. Under Armour's global headquarters are located in Baltimore, Maryland, with additional offices located in Amsterdam (European headquarters), Austin, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Houston, Jakarta,... read more

They may not have the appeal of a Nike shoe, but for people who actually play basketball, they are as good as any.

I don't care for fancy Yeezys or rare Jordans. I just want shoes that are excellent to hoop in. UA shoes have the cushioning and technology I need.

I have the Stephen Curry Threes and Fours. Most comfortable basketball shoe out there with the charged cushioning going all the way to the toe in the Curry Three.

Highly recommend this shoe brand.

I have the Stephen Curry Ones and Twos. Most comfortable basketball shoe out there with the charged cushioning going all the way to the toe in the Curry Two.

Highly recommend this shoe brand.

Reebok should be first because of their success with the amazing Reebok Pumps.

Great shoes like Questions and Answers and one of my favorites, the Pumps.

Love DMX and Hexalite technology.

I have some that I played 200 games in. No wear at all. These are the best.

6 And 1

I prefer Nike, but these are the best shoes that are only for basketball.

When I wear them on the court, they feel really good when I hop and run. They're super durable.

7 Anta

Good looking basketball shoes. Most of their designs would be sold out if they had a Nike logo on them.

It's unique, an upcoming brand, and heavily recruiting top athletes.

I like it more than Adidas, Nike, and Reebok.

8 Li-Ning

Stylish, new brand, new breed, unusual, uncommon, innovative, not imitative.

At this point, absolutely no fake look-alikes.

Stylish. I love the shoe, and also my favorite basketball player is signed with them, Way of Wade!

These shoes are stylish and really comfortable. Best basketball shoes I've ever had.

9 Shaq

I think those shoes are okay, but the color comes off after a couple of training sessions.

Better buy white shoes from the very beginning.

Awesome shoes! Affordable as well.

14 Fila
15 World Balance

Great shoes and value for money. Excellent durability, especially as an outdoor shoe!

16 BrandBlack

These shoes rival the big ones in both quality and looks. Plus, they go for about $90-$120, which is a steal.

The traction is among the best for indoor use, and their new "Future Legend" model is amazing. Search them up.

Jamal Crawford Crossover 1 and 2 brand shoes. They're such good shoes, and you can't find them anywhere except in the USA.

If you want shoes that you can't see anywhere else, this is the best.

Force Vector is a really good looking off-court/on-court model.

Full-grain leather upper, with jetlon and blade traction.

17 D Rose's
18 Jordan

Best shoes ever. I have 10 pairs that I bought in the last 2 years.

Even better than Nike because of their explosiveness and speed.

P.S. What the hell is Slazenger?

Should be #2 right behind Nike. Come on now.
