It’s the offseason. That means one of two things: AAU or club basketball is here. There’s a reason basketball players have coined the phrases “ball above all” or “ball is life.” They have no offseason — they play all season. Here are the top shoes that will keep you playing at an elite level all spring long and beyond.
Featuring ever-popular Flyweave technology, the Kobe Mentality II has an ultra-durable construction that will last all year long with a sleek, two-fade color scheme. The second iteration of the Mentality comes in a low-profile design for less bulk, less weight, and flexible support. Keep your feet dry and locked in all game long with formfitting and breathable stretch mesh. The time-tested Lunarlon foam provides an on-court feel while returning responsive energy with every step. Shed your skin and hop in the snake-inspired Kobe Mentality II.
Under Armour is no stranger to performance basketball shoes, and its latest release is true to its category: performance. The Fire Shot upper features a form-fitting, compression ankle support for comprehensive protection and a full range of motion. A light and responsive Micro G sock liner is great for any player because it molds to your foot, while the design looks like a high-top, but plays like low-top. Stay on your feet with an injection-molded outsole featuring spider web traction for enhanced multi-directional movement, control, and grip. And just because it’s a performance shoe doesn’t mean it doesn’t look good. The Fire Shot is fashionably reflective and comes in over a dozen colors (including collegiate styles). Set fire to the floor this club season with the all-new UA Fire Shot.
