I dont know anything about basketball shoes
I need to buy some ~$60
High tops or low tops?
Adidas, Nike, underarmor?

What're good choices from Amazon for a speedy shooter 5'10 170 lbs shoe size 9.5

High top but they all do the trick brand wise. I’d say you should try them on and see which is most comfortable for you.

I’d definitely reccomend high top though

Ok thanks
Im super reluctant to buy high tops bc I'm so fast. But if I could trade speed for increased vert and footwork I'd be sold.
Kobe, Dame, Harden - low tops
Lebron, Steph, Kyrie - high tops

Amazon allows "try before you buy", I'm investigating these

I wanted to wait until Black Friday
Should I get these @45?Screenshot_20191129-092000_Amazon Shopping.jpg

Is UA a sufficient brand? Nike seems like it

I'm 80% likely to just make this purchase

I bought the Lockdown UA for 49 bc of black Friday. However I have prime wardrobe and an option to return

I couldn't find a better deal, I really wanted the nike air precision

Yeah shoes aren’t that big of a deal. Just a matter of what works for you.

Try em on and if they feel good you’re good to go regardless of brand

I compete at my uni gym. All games are 5v5 to 15 points (1s and 2s). I'm 10-8 for the semester. I see everyone changes into shoes. I use adidas running shoes, and I want an advantage.
