Are high tops or low tops better basketball shoes?
I heard high tops are good for your ankles but not your knees and opposite for low.
High tops don't really stabilize your ankles the way some think. The worst time I ever broke my ankle... I was wearing high tops. Go for comfort, fit, and support... and what you like.
High tops for your ankles... I've always worn high tops, and saved my ankle about a thousand times...
High tops give extra support to your ankles and considered how much stopping and starting and moving from side to side extra support is always good.
Whatever you play better with
High tops and I also had the trainer to tape my ankles or sometimes I would wear ankle braces to help with support
High Tops but if they're uncomfortable you could try middies and reinforce your ankles with wraps.
The Kobe low tops are great for basketball
Whatever the pros wear
I wear high tops, but you gotta make sure they go around the ankle joint, otherwise you can still have bad sprained ankles, and it doesn't really hurt your knees
