Basketball shoes for men: the power of movement
Since we launched the Air Jordan 1 in 1985, designing innovative men's basketball shoes has been in our company's DNA. We build our men's basketball trainers to give you the traction you deserve to maximise your on-court performance. Meanwhile, our Zoom Air units soak up the energy of your stride and snap back quickly for a responsive feel. Plus, cushioning systems absorb the impact of your landings. All you need to do is lace up and grab the ball.
Engineered outsoles for on-court confidence
Exceptional footwear helps you move with purpose and turn with speed. Our men's basketball shoes offer relentless grip that gives you full control over your footwork. Multi-directional patterns help you connect to the court during quick cuts, while rubber wraps around the sides of shoes to deliver outstanding stability. Choose basketball trainers with data-informed 360-degree traction for super-fast direction changes, and soles with pivot circles so you can rotate with ease.
Protect your joints with men's basketball sneakers
When you're running and jumping, you need a shoe with reliable cushioning for your feet. We make our men's basketball shoes with sculpted foam midsoles for exceptional support and cloud-like softness underfoot. Our acclaimed trainers soak up the impact of each stride, leap and landing without weighing you down, then bounce back into shape for a springy feel under your soles. The result? You're free to focus on putting in your best-ever performance for your team.
Support for maximum confidence
When your feet are locked in and supported, you can focus on testing your limits. That's why we make our basketball shoes for men with durable webbing that secures your forefoot. Meanwhile, structured heels hug close to your ankles without sacrificing mobility, helping you through every movement. Look out for men's basketball sneakers with external moulded heel clips that lock the back of the foot in and high-performance lacing systems to keep your soles in place in the footbed.
Find your power with durable uppers
Because every game and every player is different, we make our Nike basketball shoes for men in a choice of upper styles and materials. Ankle-hugging designs provide support for your joints, while lower-profile pairs ensure added freedom of movement. Look for stretchy knit fabrics that flex with you, and breathable weaves to help you stay cool and comfortable. Need a pair with extra durability? Opt for leather and synthetic leather that's made to go the distance during the toughest of matches.
Join our journey
Helping the planet is more important than ever, and Nike's Move to Zero is our journey towards a zero-carbon and zero-waste future. Since 2008, we've made all our Nike Air units at our Oregon and Missouri facilities with at least 25% post-manufacturing waste. We also repurpose old plastic bottles, carpets and fishing nets into durable yarn for our clothing. To join our mission, choose men's basketball shoes with the Sustainable Materials tag.
