No. 10 - Nike Zoom Soldier VII

Heel and forefoot Zoom with durable Fuse uppers for greater containment. Add in the midfoot strap and excellent traction and you'll be a happy PF on the floor.

No. 9 - adidas Howard 4

This is for the big man that prefers court feel and flex. The next gen PureMotion provides next level flexibility for enhanced range of motion. Traction is abundant as well so you'll be more than confident while posting up and taking opponents to the rack.

8 copy

No. 8 - Jordan Melo M9

Great cushion and adaptive fit, the Jordan Melo M9 is a great model for the versatile PF. Herringbone, heel and forfoot Zoom plus you can find a ton of colorways on sale at Nike Outlet stores.
7

No. 7 - Nike Air Max Hyperposite

Wrongfully classified as a casual model, the Nike Air Max Hyperposite is a beast on-court. Traction and cushion are both highlights while the Hyperposite upper provides you with a custom fit that surpasses most shoes on the market.

6

No. 6 - Nike LeBron X

If you want a responsive ride unlike anything you've ever felt before then you'll want to try out the LeBron X. The full length 360 degree Zoom is incredible, traction is great and the lockdown is exceptional. Not really anything negative you can say about the LeBron X... unless you're waiting for the LeBron XI.

No. 5 - Nike Hyperdunk 2013

Nike's most versatile sneaker on their roster each year, the 2013 edition is no different. Traction is beastly when maneuvering laterally and the Lunarlon cushions each step you take.

4 copyNo. 4 - Under Armour Anatomix Spawn

What the Hyperdunk is for Nike, the Spawn is for Under Armour. Anatomically correct foot mapping along the upper provides you with a secure fit offering little to no dead space without pinching or creating hot spots. Traction is near perfect and the full length Micro G is something to behold. One of the best performance models of the year and they came from Under Armour.

3 copy

No. 3 - Air Jordan XX8 SE

An abundance of support from a shoe that is built fairly minimally. The Flight Plate is the best thing to happen to Zoom Air since, well... since Zoom Air was invented. Remove the shroud from the original XX8 and drop the price down to $150 and you'll start seeing these on-court more often... and for good reason.

2

No. 2 - Jordan Super.Fly 2

Built for a big man but they feel like a Guard shoe. Traction, Adaptive Fit, durable Fuse and unlocked Zoom/ Flight Plate. Whats not to love?

1 copy

No. 1 - Nike LeBron XI

They haven't released yet but we're banking that the next installment of the games current greatest player wont disappoint. The LeBron XI is packed with all of Nike's latest and greatest performance tech. Hyperposite, Dynamic Flywire, full length Zoom & full length Lunarlon... yeah... we're pretty sure this'll be the shoe most PF will want to lace up this current season.
