Feel confident on the basketball court this season in the Nike Zoom KD 12 basketball shoes. These Kevin Durant basketball shoes offer the support, bounce, and traction you need to attack the basketball court. The Nike KD12 basketball shoe offers stability and a lockdown feel with the four multi-directional Flywire cables. This basketball shoe responds to your performance with the Nike Zoom Air, which both cushions and provides the needed bounce. This flexible and lightweight basketball shoe supports the ankle with a 3/4-high collar. The Nike Zoom KD12 Basketball Shoes are for both men and women basketball players.


Low-profile shoe built for the quick attack.

Like his mamba alter ego, when Kobe Bryant sheds his old skin for new, he comes back deadlier than ever. The Nike Mamba Focus symbolizes his transition with an embossed upper inspired by a snake's metamorphosis. The low-profile outsole keeps you close to the court while optimizing your ability to step back, create space and elevate-one of Kobe's most devastating moves.


The Under Armour SC 3Zero basketball shoe comes equipped with a durable synthetic leather upper, perforated for enhanced breathability. It features a half bootie construction for internal comfort & adjustability and an enhanced cushioning system around ankle collar for superior comfort & heel stability. The SC 3Zero provides solid cushioning with Under Armour's Micro G® foam midsole along with a herringbone traction pattern on the outsole for increased grip on the hardwood.


Smooth, responsive, and versatile like KD.

Kevin Durant likes a shoe that feels broken-in right away but still provides containment and support. The Nike KD Trey 5 nails it all around, combining bouncy cushioning with a precise, supportive fit that's ready to go right out of the box.


The adidas Pro Bounce basketball shoes offer instant step-in comfort on the court. They feature cushioned pods on the inside of the collar and a soft hand feel around the heel. Flex grooves on the outsole mimic your foot's natural movement as you attack the rim.


Stellar 2-way player Paul George.

The Nike PG3 basketball shoe has multidirectional traction, responsive cushioning and snug, supportive fit players need to set the tempo and capitalize at both ends of the court. The PG3 is a mid cut shoe between a low and a high top and features a plush cushioned ankle lining. This year's model comes in men's and women's sizes, as well as a variety of colors.


Freakish speed, power and control.

Get your freak on in Giannis Antetokounmpo's debut signature shoe, Nike's first ever for the international basketball sensation. The Nike Zoom Freak 1 has the extra-responsive cushioning, forefoot lockdown and multidirectional traction needed to complement his freakishly athletic game.


Play low and fast with the adidas Dame 5 basketball shoes. These men's basketball shoes are built with a soft suede upper, and feature internal pods along the midfoot for exceptional comfort. A Bounce midsole gives the shoes lightweight cushioning. The herringbone outsole provides ultimate traction, while the mid-foot banking barrier allows for lateral stability for quick changes of direction; just like Damian Lillard.


LeBron's offseason sensation.

LeBron works hard in the offseason, getting stronger and fine-tuning his already devastating skills. Inspired by his dedication and commitment to inclusivity, the Nike LeBron Soldier XIII combines  Lebron-tested cushioning, containment and support with a wide, flexible collar and lace-free closure that lets all players get in and out of the shoe with ease.
