Best Basketball Shoes of 2015
Basketball is known to be one of the most popular sports in the world. It is also rising in popularity in Asia even in our own country. Along with the sport, basketball shoes are also becoming more popular as more high profile stars have donned their own signature shoes. With that, here are some of the best basketball shoes released this year.
Nike Kyrie 1
The first edition in the Kyrie Irving’s new line of sneakers with Nike, the Kyrie 1 is both lightweight and a stylish pair for any type of player.
Nike LeBron 12
As Nike’s longest tenured endorser, LeBron has donned several unique pairs in his line of sneakers. The 12th one is as unique as ever as it introduces Nike’s new hexagonal zoom technology that is said to reduce impact and improve mobility alongside a hyperposite body.
Nike Hyperdunk 2014
The Hyperdunk series is one of more popular lines in Nike due to a good combination of cushioning and support that help any high impact playing style.
Nike Zoom HyperRev 2015
