adidas Basketball High Tops

Get geared up to play the game you love in basketball high tops from adidas. Whether you're working on your game, playing ball with your friends or simply relaxing in company of the family, our basketball high top shoes keep you comfortable on any occasion. Classics like the Top Ten have a gaudy history behind them. Back in 1979, they were given to the best 10 players in the league as a special recognition for their play. The Top Ten were a symbol of great play and their status in the league, regardless of what position they played on the court. They soon became a staple around every blacktop and gym, later crossing over to sidewalks in many cities around the world. Their minimal, straightforward design made them timeless, so they look sharp for a lunch with friends, a trip with the family or any casual outing throughout your day.

The Top Ten are sturdy and have a structured feel, undoubtedly one of adidas' most durable basketball high top sneakers. They're made with a full grain leather upper that is soft and smooth to the touch. A plush collar hugs your feet comfortably to provide a snug feel the minute you lace them up. The serrated 3-Stripes on the sides give it that legendary aura that made them an overnight sensation. If you're looking for performance basketball hi-tops, look no further than these great options. The Cross Em Up have a slick textile upper with an eye-catching design. A Cloudfoam midsole makes every step plush and lightweight, whether you're running, pulling down a rebound or burying the game-winner to put your team in front. Padding around the ankle gives you a soft sensation through every minute of the game. The rubber outsole has a zigzag pattern to optimize grip, so toeing the sideline and making those sharp cuts to the basket feels intuitive.

When it comes to basketball high tops, it doesn't get any more versatile than a pair of OwnTheGame shoes. They sit between a mid top and high top shoe, providing ankle support and a soft feel as soon as you lace them up. A Lightmotion midsole provides lightweight cushioning to keep you comfortable in the gym, at the park or anywhere else the day takes you. Pull tabs on the tongue and heel areas help you put your shoes on or take them off with ease. A grippy rubber outsole with a multi-directional pattern provides the traction you need for a smooth crossover dribble, a quick second jump for the tip-in or to stop on a dime for the uncontested jumper. The colorblocked design of these basketball high top sneakers also looks good no matter where the day takes you next.

Of course, we also have a signature look to hoop in. The Exhibit B basketball high top shoes are Candace Parker's signature model, inspired by her play and made for the versatile player that can do it all on the floor. They have a wavy Lightstrike midsole that cushions with every step, so you're just as comfortable dribbling the ball up the court as you are pulling up in traffic or lunging for the loose ball. A multi-directional pattern on the outsole gives you the traction you need to change directions on a whim or stop on a dime, so you're always in control. If you want to wear them for looks, take a look at the different colors and patterns to pick the one that suits your vibe.
