Jordan Brand Best Newcomer – Jordan Horizon LS

The Jordan Horizon is serious about style and classic comfort, making it a post-game staple for hoopers. Inspired by the iconic Air Jordan XIII, the Horizon has a sporty feel with a dressed-up look. That flexible style shines when the game is over, allowing you to seamlessly transition from the gym to the street. The shoe’s design catches your eye, but the Horizon’s emphasis on comfort will make you an even bigger fan. After a long game, you need a shoe that’s flexible and lightweight. The Horizon provides plenty of comfortable cushioning, as well as extra support, so that you’re always feeling fresh.

Basketball Buyer’s Pick – Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 10

Made for kings of the court, this shoe is all about performance. The Nike Zoom LeBron Soldier 10 focuses on lightweight lockdown and responsiveness, so that you can be explosive on the court. The unique three-strap system provides a secure, custom fit, and the Zoom Air units at the heel and forefoot provide responsive cushioning. The Soldier 10 also incorporates storytelling elements – which sneakerheads love – by featuring aspects of past Soldier models. The LeBron Soldier 10 has been a decade in the making and it celebrates the accomplishments of one of the best players the game has ever seen.

Basketball Best Newcomer – Nike Hyperdunk 2016

The Hyperdunk 2016 is all about responsiveness and explosiveness, making it the perfect shoe for the game’s most athletic players. The Hyperdunk 2016 also features a Flyknit version that provides an even more dynamic fit and extra-flexible support.
