With so many options available, how do you pick the perfect Nike basketball shoe? Nike shoes are made with comfort, style, and performance in mind, but things like budget and design will always play a major role in deciding what shoe is best for you. Depending on your play style, you will want a shoe that fits your needs. Nike shoes come in high-top design, mid, or low-top design. High-tops offer the most ankle support, while low-tops allow for the most mobility. Mid shoes offer a happy medium between the 2. Nike shoes are known having a quality build and flashy design. You’ll definitely want to try on your shoes and get a good look at them before making a final purchase. Basketball shoes in general should feel comfortable to wear, even during intense games.
