With the 2021-22 NBA season now concluded, we have seen the release of a new crop of sneakers this year (though supply chain issues have once again put a damper on both the number of new shoes released and their availability). With Nike and Adidas releasing a new signature shoe in each of their lines every year plus smaller brands like Under Armour, Puma, Converse and AND1 all dropping sneakers of their own, it is tough to stay on top of the market.
That’s where Baller Shoes DB can help. Featuring a database of every shoe worn by every player in the NBA, we have all of the data you need to make the most informed decision and buy the shoes that will help you dominate the court. In compiling this list, we’ve gone through every shoe released in the past year to give you our top 5 basketball shoes for 2022.
These are shoes that excel in the following areas:
- Superior cushioning for maximum comfort and reduced stress on your knees and feet
- Excellent traction for speedy cuts and crossovers anywhere on the court
- Elite support to protect your ankles from a devastating injury
- High level construction and fit for a shoe that can withstand the rigors of any game
