Men's High Top Basketball Shoes Frequently Asked Questions

High tops were first used for basketball as a style statement aligning with men’s footwear trends, with the added benefit of providing ankle support. In modern basketball, however, men’s high-top basketball shoes are becoming less common. They still bring a vibe and a cool look, but newer research suggests that the high tops don’t do much to prevent ankle injury, and possibly even make ankle injury more likely by restricting natural corrective movements.
Whether high tops are good for basketball is up for debate. If you feel most comfortable and confident playing in high tops, that’s a good argument for wearing them. If a lower cut is more your jam, then you should opt for lower. There isn’t clear evidence that men’s high-top basketball shoes prevent ankle injury. Some research suggests they might even make injury more likely by preventing natural movement. So high tops are good if you prefer them, but they’re not necessary.
The basketball shoes that make you jump the highest probably are the ones you feel most comfortable in. Beyond that, a super-grippy outsole that lets you get good footing, lightweight cushioning that won’t hinder your jump and a supportive structure that lets you step confidently are all important. There are shoes out there claiming to increase your vertical, but if they make a difference at all, it’s usually for the most athletic, highest-level players. So whether you choose men’s high-top basketball shoes or low, pick a shoe that's light, grippy and comfortable.
