Gear Up For Basketball Season

Basketball season is right around the corner. Months of workouts, pickup games, and shoot arounds are finally about to pay off when you step onto the court for the 2016-17 season. You’ve put in the work to be successful this year, and now it’s time to make it happen.

The best players need the best gear. Make sure this season is your best season with gear that allows you to look, feel, and play your best.

Nike Kobe 11

Kobe 11

There are plenty of great sneaker options, but you can’t go wrong with a shoe from one of the best players to ever play the game. Kobe Bryant may have moved on from playing the game, but his shoes are still geared toward performance basketball. The Nike Flyknit is stronger, lighter, and more flexible than ever before, providing maximum support and comfort during your quickest moves. The classic low-top look is also equipped with Lunarlon foam to deliver soft and responsive shock absorption, allowing your athleticism to really shine. Choose from six Eastbay-exclusive Kobe 11 colorways!

Eastbay Customer Review: “This shoe is by far one of the best I have ever had. It is extremely durable, comfortable, and overall just well built. If you are in a position where you are not quite sure, trust me when I say you will love this shoe. It looks very good in most outfits. Highly recommend.”

Nike Elite Backpack

Nike Elite Backpack

You’re busier than ever during the season. You’ll be running between school, practices, games, and the weight room constantly. The Nike Elite Backpack is perfect for helping you get around with all the gear you need to be successful on the court and in the classroom. Preparation leads to success on the court and off the court. Make sure you’re packed up and ready to go with everything you need day in and day out. The Nike Quad Zip System allows for easy access from all angles, so you can get what you need when you need it, no matter what.

Eastbay Customer Review: “The style and versatility of the backpack have met our needs! Love how the front of the backpack opens up, making it easier for storage and removal of items, like shoes.”

Nike Therma Elite Full-Zip Hoodie

Nike Therma Elite Full-Zip Hoodie

Comfort is key, and that’s where this Hoodie comes in. The Nike Therma fabric manages your body’s natural heat to keep you warm, while leaving you with unrestricted movement.

Focused on comfort and performance, this hoodie also features signature Nike style.

Nike Elite Versatility Socks

Nike Elite Versatility Socks

Elite athletes are always versatile. The Nike Elite Versatility Sock emphasizes comfort so that your versatility can shine. The classic look is one of the most popular on-court sock looks in the game, and the functionality holds up, too. Comfort and style make this sock a must-have – and with over 25 colors available, you’ll have plenty of options.

Eastbay Customer Review: “Great socks. They are very comfortable and stylish.”

Nike Elite Stripe 9” Shorts

Nike Elite Stripe 9” Shorts

Similar to the Elite socks, the Elite Stripe Shorts come in the classic style that athletes love. When you hit the hardwood, you need shorts that will hold up to your game. The Nike Elite Stripe Shorts feature an internal drawcord for a secure, customizable fit and pockets for convenient storage. Many hoopers rolled up their shorts or wore shorter shorts on the summer basketball circuit to allow for greater mobility. These shorts come with a 9” inseam, which is perfect for unrestricted movement. Dominate the court – and look good while doing it.

Eastbay Customer Review: “These fit much better than the older elite shorts. They are 9” inseam, which might be too short for some, but I like the length. The older 12” inseam was just way too baggy overall.”

Nike Hypercool 3/4 Basketball Tights

Nike Hypercool 3/4 Basketball Tights

If you like to wear tights on the court, then look no further. The Nike Hypercool tights are breathable and provide anatomical support with a compression fit. The 3/4 tights come in a black, grey, white, and blue color, allowing you to rock any style while remaining cool and comfortable during the game.

Nike Fly Droptail T-Shirt

Nike Fly Droptail T-Shirt

The classic Nike Swoosh and the word “FLY” give this tee plenty of Nike signature style. With six different colors, you’ll have no problem finding the right look for you. Nike has set the standard for athletic apparel for a long time, and this tee continues that tradition. The Droptail hem on the back makes it a great fit for on-court play, and it also matches a popular off-court trend.

Nike Elite Tournament Ball

You can’t play basketball without the ball. This basketball is the preferred ball of over 250 major college programs and is NFHS approved for high school play. Made for indoor use only, this is a standard-sized men’s basketball that’ll get you ready for the season and also be perfect for in-season use.
