Nike, Under Armour, and Adidas lead the way in women’s basketball shoes, offering a variety of low-, mid-, and high-top styles. Basketball shoes need to be able to accommodate fast bursts of speed, sudden stops and changes in direction, and jumps. Your position and style of play (shooting from a distance or aggressive defense) may influence your shoe choice. Most basketball shoes are designed for inside courts, and while they are fine for outside play, this wears them out faster. Tread is important for grip, and flat outsoles help with balance. Cushioning is nice for comfort, but experts suggest not having too much cushioning in order to retain stability.
