Best Option: Nike Hyperdunk 2013, $140 

The way your foot sits in the footbed not only makes for a comfortable trip up and down the court, but it can help hold your foot in the right place when you make dynamic cuts and get you off the floor quicker. The cushioning can feel great, but if it doesn't have the proper grooves to keep your foot in place as you move, banging your toes or heel slippage can lead to banging the bench with your heel because of game slippage.
