No. 10 - Nike Visi Pro III
The Nike Visi Pro III was listed in our beginners list and as you can see, they'd make for a great purchase - especially when finding them for a steal at the outlet. They have everything you need and nothing you don't. Under $60, I'll take two.
No. 9 - Nike Zoom Kobe 7
Having a difficult time locating a pair of Kobe 8's in your size? You wouldn't be the only one. Luckily last years model is still available at select outlet locations. Not only has the Kobe 7 been spotted at outlets but they've even been spotted at other discount stores such as Ross for as low as $50.
No. 8 - Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2012
Superb traction, good ventilation, Zoom Air cushion and they're so durable they'll likely last year. Not a bad item to find when rummaging through the outlets.
No. 7 - Nike Zoom Hyperdunk 2011 Elite
The 2013 Hyperdunk is now available but if you look hard enough you can still find the 2011 model in the Elite version which features Zoom Air in the heel and forefoot... something some Hyperdunk enthusiasts miss. If you are one that has missed the heel and forefoot Zoom Air setup then head over to your nearest Nike Outlet to see if they're still on shelves.
No. 6 - Nike Zoom Soldier VI
Much like the Hyperdunk 2011, the Zoom Soldier VI features heel and forefoot Zoom Air and are far greater a performer than the latest reiteration of the LeBron team model. Colorways are scarce but if you don't mind that then they make a for a great pickup.
No. 5 - Air Jordan 2012
One of the most elaborate Air Jordan's of all time. Full system and wingtip inspired design. They were a beast on court yet went straight to outlets. They've been there so long that their prices are at an all-time low. If you are looking for a great on-court performer at a fraction of the price, the Air Jordan 2012 is it.
No. 4 - Jordan CP3.VI
They are a near perfect guard shoe. Great traction, cushion and a durable upper. Add in a nice discounted rate and they appear even better. Paying full retail price is already recommended... discounted make then a no-brainer.
No. 3 - Air Jordan XX8
The top performance model of 2013 has landed at outlets. They have been more than difficult to locate online and many stores never had them in stock but Nike outlet stores have them and the only reason they aren't at the top of the list is because they are one of the most expensive outlet store finds we've ever seen.
No. 2 - Nike Hyperdunk 2012
Aesthetics should have no precedence when looking for a new hoop shoe but you cant deny how clean the Hyperdunk 2012 is... especially when comparing them to the 2013 model. Some colorways have had their prices lowered further than those pictured here but no matter which you choose, their performance will be excellent.
No. 1 - Jordan Melo M9
One of the most slept on performance models is the Jordan Melo M9. Great colorways, an abundance of cushion, superb traction, dynamic fit and they are as low as $55 depending on the color... if this isn't considered a steal then we don't know what is.
