These shoes remind me of the big basketball shoes of the early ’90s. The shoes were big and flashy back then. Some even had little orange basketballs on the tongue for additional jumping ability. 😉 These new shoes from Reebok are designed for complete support, flexibility, and durability. A basketball player’s ankles are constantly at the risk of twisting and turning so a good pair of high tops is essential.

I remember playing high school basketball while wearing adidas Superstars. The classic design is still popular today in the 3G updated version. These shoes provide the support of a high top while allowing for more flexibility of a mid height basketball shoe. I loved wearing these back all those years ago and they’re only getting better each year.
