Any pro ball player will tell you the game it's all about the shoe. Well, they'd probably say it's about skill, teamwork, and practice. But shoes are pretty important too! That's why we've put together this list of the best basketball shoe brands for men. 

When it comes hitting the b-ball court, you'll want to have a shoe that's not too grippy, but also not too slippery. Finding the balance is key. And the same goes for cushion. Is it too squishy? Or too hard? Do you prefer foam cushioning or air cushioning? How do they fit? Are they durable? Will they hold up all season or are you going to have to replace them after a few games? The choice is up to you, but this list has a ton of options. 

Since the beginning of time - or maybe just since Michael Jordan - Air Jordans have been a key brand in basketball shoes. But they aren't the only brand! Adidas, Converse, Under Armour, and Nike make great men's basketball shoes. So do brands like Puma and New Balance. Don't see a brand on this list that needs to be here? Then add it! 

So before you hit the court, hit our list of the best basketball shoes for men. Upvote the brand that brings out your inner Shaq, Michael Jordan, or Lebron James.
