Best Options: Nike Kobe 8 System, $140 

This is pretty self-explanatory. If you're a big man or a power forward, lightweight shoes may not be as important to you. But they should.

Adidas has a few models that are proud of their feather-like weight system, especially ones that still provide the support you need.
