Best Nike Basketball Shoes 2013

Updated on October 19, 2013

Finding the Best Basketball Shoe for Basketball

It is always a chore when looking to purchase some quality basketball shoes for your children. As I have been an active basketball player since the age of 4, I have general knowledge to show you what are the best choices for you or your child. Nike makes some amazing Nike Basketball Shoesand is also the top seller when it comes to sports items. Michael Jordan created his dynasty around his Jordan's that is also created by Nike

I will give you options to different shoes so you can have a choice. Remember I will not promote any type of shoes without trying them first my self. I want to make sure that I give you the proper information, and all information may also give you a heads up playing basketball.

Understanding that these shoes are the best bang for your buck is important. Many basketball player to be are looking for the most flashiest shoes and also trying to get all of one brand. I want to make sure you are getting your moneys worth when you buy your Nike basketball shoes.

Tips For Buying The Best Basketball Shoes

When looking for basketball shoes, one needs to first understand some basic info. Basketball players need ankle support, that does not give way. Looking for proper high-top basketball shoes will allow you or your child to pivot, jerk and fake out opponents without risking a chance of a broken ankle.

The next tip would be proper landing on the souls. When jumping and running, your souls will be damaged if you do not have the proper shoes on. When looking for basketball shoes, one needs to ensure that the soul of the shoe is thick enough and will not hurt after multiple drops. If you find a pair of Nike basketball shoes that you bought and start having discomfort,please try some in souls to help relieve the discomfort.

Last but not least, color of the shoe is big. Often times teams will try to obtain shoes that are the same color as the school colors. If you find a Nike Air or an air Jordan that's not the color of your team search around. Try putting the color in with the search.

Nike HyperDunk Basketball shoes - Possibly the best Basketball shoe out there

Best 2013 Nike Basketball Shoes

These shoes are the best options for 2013 basketball. Some shoe colors can be changed to help suit your school color. Make sure you are getting the right size.

On April 6th 2011 Nike introduced the Dirk Nowitzki Player Edition Hyperdunk 2010 shoes with some amazing pictures. Nike is saying with continued interest in supporting Dirks huge jumps they have padded the soul part of the shoes to ensure there will be no sore feet after the game.

      I don't thinks Kobe is the best NBA player but he is a very good player. He may be one of the best but there are others amazing players to such as Dwayne Wade, Lebron James, Dwight Howard, Derrick Rose, and more! Overall, there is many great players so lets wait who gets the MVP award this year!!!

      noo way, don't get me wrong, he is a great basketball player. He is incredible but he is not the best NBA player. If you compare his stats with michael jordan or any other amazing player you will realize he is not the best!

      He's not the best because Lebron and KD were born.

      no hes a great player but he is in his 40 s no and lebron is entering his prime. Plus in basketball your supposed to dish the rock.

    • profile image

      no, of course...hes good but compared to lebron, hes only second to him...basketball is a team effort and not by yourself only..

    • profile image

      anonymous 5 years ago

      I think that Kobe is not the best player in the league and the main reason is that he is a selfish player and of course Lebron James is the best (no doubt about it)

      Hell no cause lebron James is the best all around player...Kobe is good but have no chance compared to lebron and just cause Kobe has 5 rings doesn't mean he's better than lebron...always remember basketball is a team sport so ask yourself before you judge my comment do kobe pass the ball like lebron and still score 30 points a game???LEBRON IS ONLY GETTING BETTER AND GAINING MORE HATERS BUT ANYWAY KOBE HAD HIS TIME NOW IT'S LEBRON AMD UP AND COMING DURANTS

      He is the best in his era. But Michael Jordan is the greatest of them

      No Kobe is not the best , he takes too many shots and he doesn't let his teammates get invoked.

      looking for the best player? i would say and nothing can change this! MICHAEL JORDAN IS THE BEST BASKETBALL PLAYER EVER.

    • profile image

      anonymous 5 years ago

      heck no: jordans better. reason jordan stood out: jordan was an offensive and defensive player during an era where defense was highly noted. kobe, like lebron, is an offensive player during an offensive era. lebron is close to jordan, if jordan only got one ring. But jordan had six, and if lebron can somehow fufill his promise of eight rings, then i would call lebron the greatest player of all time.

      jordan will forever be the best player to have ever played the game. PERIOD!

      Kobe is easily one of the top 5 players in the game, but I would say it's still up in the air whether he's the best or not. Nobody will ever rival his footwork and ability to make a shot from literally any spot on the court though.

      no not of right now but if he gets a 6th ring then he will be in comparison to mj hands down look at the stats everything compaires becides the first two years but kobe was off and on with bench.... if kobe can get a 3rd man he will win more and possible be the best to ever touch a basketball

      Kobe Bryant is one of the best ballers in the NBA, but Lebron James is the BEST. People see Kobe for the baller he is today, if they were to look at young Kobe, and look at young Lebron, numbers and visuals don't lie. Who cares about clutch moments,seriously, it took Kobe 200 airballs just before he made his first game-winning shot.

      @anonymous: Lebron isn't even on the same level as Kobe. Bryant has 5 soon to be 6 rings to Lebrons... How many? Kobe shouldn't be compared to Jordan yet but as far as Lebron and Dwayne Wade, Kobe blows them outta the water.
