Kobe A.D. Gif

The new Kobe A.D. is created for the next generation of great basketball players and designed with Kobe Bryant’s legendary game in mind. A breathable upper, Zoom Air cushioning, and special traction pattern help you unleash your full offensive repertoire on the court. For more on the design behind the shoe, check out our interview with the shoe’s designer here.

Nike React Hyperdunk 2017

Hyperdunk 2017 1

The iconic Hyperdunk line is back and better than ever. The React Hyperdunk 2017 features the innovative Nike React cushioning technology that provides a responsive, comfortable on-court feel. The Hyperdunk has proved to be one of the best basketball shoes around, and the 2017 version builds on that tradition. Plus, we will have a HUGE selection with over 40 Hyperdunk 2017 colorways available only at eastbay.com this season. The Hyperdunk comes in a Flyknit version for $159.99, a mid-top for $139.99, a low-top for $129.99, and a limited low-top that features a casual-inspired upper for $139.99.

Nike LeBron Soldier 11

Soldier 1

The latest installment in LeBron James’ Soldier line is here. Focused on lightweight lockdown and comfortable cushioning, the LeBron Soldier 11 utilizes a four-strap lockdown system that’s built for battle. Rule the court in classic LeBron James style with 24 Eastbay-exclusive colorways fit for the King himself.

adidas Harden LS

Harden LS 1

James Harden’s first signature basketball shoe took the world by storm. Following up on the success of Harden Vol. 1, adidas dropped the Harden LS, a lifestyle evolution of Harden’s signature line. It’s a basketball shoe rebuilt with off-court style in mind and plenty of casual appeal. The Harden LS offers the same great performance of the Harden Vol. 1, but with an updated look that adds versatility and street-worthy style.

Nike PG 1

Nike PG 1

Paul George’s first signature shoe quickly gained recognition as one of the top performance shoes in the game. The PG 1 perfectly blends durability, comfort, and cushioning, all in a lightweight silhouette that offers hoopers a fresh new look. Built to match Paul George’s athleticism and all-around game, the PG 1 helps you get buckets and look good in the process.

Nike Kyrie 3

Kyrie 3 1

The Nike Kyrie 3 is a point guard’s dream shoe. It’s made to match Kyrie Irving’s fast footwork and hot handles with a strong, supportive upper and cushioning that maximizes comfort and responsiveness. A curved outsole helps with quick, seamless transitions and independent pods enhance traction for razor-sharp cuts in any direction. Leave your defenders in the dust with the Kyrie 3 this season.

adidas Crazy Explosive

Crazy Explosive 1

After a successful debut last season, the Crazy Explosive returns with an updated look and new technology for even more explosive play on the court. Built for the game’s most athletic players, the Crazy Explosive 2017 introduces a Primeknit version for a breathable, flexible fit that provides enhanced comfort and lockdown. Boost cushioning also provides energy-returning comfort that keeps every step charged with light and fast responsiveness. Read more about the PK version here. A non-Primeknit version of the Crazy Explosive is also available.

Nike KD X

Nike KD 10 1

Kevin Durant’s newest shoe is created with the superstar’s versatile game in mind. He’s a pure shooter, gifted scorer, and dangerous playmaker, so the KD X provides the cushioning, lockdown, and fit needed for his all-around game. Like Durant himself, the KD shoe line just keeps getting better and better. Technology updates like the Flyknit upper, dynamic lacing system, and full-length Zoom Air unit offer top-tier performance and a great on-court feel all season long.

Jordan Super.Fly 2017

SuperFly 1

Like the React Hyperdunk 2017, the Jordan Super.Fly 2017 utilizes Nike’s new React Cushioning technology for the ultimate on-court feel. The Super.Fly 2017 offers instant flight for some of high flying players and top athletes like Blake Griffin. Check out what Griffin had to say about his newest shoe here and take flight in one of Jordan’s top performance shoes this season.

adidas Dame 3

Dame 3 1

Damian Lillard has developed into one of the game’s best all-around players with his versatile skill set, and his third signature shoe is built to showcase his many skills. From scoring to assisting to lockdown defense, the Dame 3 helps you do it all on the court with Bounce cushioning, a breathable mesh upper, and a bootie construction for snug and secure lockdown. Step your game up with the Dame 3.

Nike LeBron 14 Low

LeBron 14 1

The Nike LeBron 14 is built to the exact specifications of LeBron James, offering the strength, support, stability, and explosive abilities that make LeBron’s game so special. This version of King James’ shoe offers those same capabilities, but in a comfortable low-top silhouette for players who prefer a more flexible cut.

Nike Zoom Shift

Zoom Shift 1

Zoom past your defenders in complete comfort and fresh Nike style with the Nike Zoom Shift. Eastbay will have 24 colorways of the Zoom Shift this season, offering tons of different options to fit your team’s colors. The lightweight, engineered mesh upper, responsive Forefoot Zoom Air unit, and outsole wraps combine for a comfortable, supportive, lightweight feel with top traction.

Jordan Ultra.Fly 2

Ultrafly 1

Following up on its predecessor, the Jordan Ultra.Fly 2 is built for players who are versatile enough to play any position. The Ultra.Fly 2 is outfitted with an iconic Jordan look and updated technology, like a webbing lace system and lightweight sock-like fit, that makes this basketball shoe a slam dunk. Complete comfort and plush cushioning offer next-level flight on the court. Borrowing from the look of the iconic Retro 15, the Ultra.Fly 2 is perfect for people who are looking for a throwback style this season.

Under Armour Drive 4

UA Drive 1

Drive the lane in breathable comfort, strong support, and ideal cushioning with the Under Armour Drive 4. Utilizing a breathable, lightweight textile upper for comfort, exposed Micro G cushioning for responsiveness, and a die-cut EVA sockliner midsole for additional cushioning and support, the Drive 4 has all of the tools for elite on-court performance.
