Best Option: Jordan Melo 9, $140

We don't know of any player who enjoys their foot moving around in their shoes as they're playing. That's just not a preference. While this is totally dependent on your foot type (wide, skinny, high arch, flat feet, etc.), the stability in the uppers of your basketball shoe can not only prevent injuries to your foot, but it tell your feet they don't have to worry about slippage or movement because your shoe has a tight grip on them. Thus prompting them to use all of their muscles to your benefit. Not having to ease up on a cut or stop due to apprehensiveness can do wonders for your game, bruh.
