Preferably opt for high top shoes as they provide the requisite ankle support.When it comes to basketball shoes, each person has a personal favorite. This is not surprising considering the shoe that each player selects depends on the structure of his feet, his perception of comfort and also on the kind of game that he plays.

Popular Adidas shoes include the Adidas TS cut creator, the TS Commander LT, Bounce Commander III and Adidas A3 basketball shoes. These shoes have been worn during the NBA by stars like Kevin Garnett and Dwight Howard.
