  • Lining is a soft mesh with a nice cushion, making it comfortable to wear during exercise or everyday
  • Insole is a high elasticity EVA with perforations to assist in energy recovery, breathability, and flexibility
  • Outsole is an MD+TPR, with high elasticity to create a very plush cushion while running
  • Bottom tread gives a strong grip to the court without compromising the stability of the shoe

I have a Smitty court shoe and its all leather which has been an excellent shoe for me doing close to 80 basketball games per year. This shoe was lighter and I liked the design and feel of comfort but, it was too big. I needed a 12.5 and they only had 13.

Awesome shoes, though they run a half size too small. I am an 8.5 in almost every shoe and need a 9. I have wide feet and these seem to be fine but my toes are at the very end.

Ordered a pair for basketball. I was slightly apprehensive due to the small number of reviews and videos on them but I needed a new pair. These shoes appear to run small. I normally wear a 10.5 men’s but exchanged for 11. They I wore them for about 5 hours and they definitely need a break in time. As a whole, they are comfortable, and the soles are manufactured in a way that will prevent you from rolling your ankle on a quick turn or sprint. The soles have enough grip to not feel like I will slide on the floor. Definitely recommend purchasing if you officiate sports that require back and forth movements.
