If the technology used on the kicks above seems familiar, it probably is. It appears that Converse has dipped into parent company Nike's vast library of footwear innovations, as you'll notice a few common Nike cues on this particular model. The MVP's upper combines Flywire strands with an injected foam unibody, which makes for an incredible fit and high durability. The Ortholite sockliner provides comfort that will rival many of today's top models. Due to the high cut, this is a great choice for forwards and bigger players.

The MVP originally retailed at $100, bu they've recently been discounted to $70 over at Eastbay. If you have been on the hunt for new basketball kicks, but don't need all the extra attachments offered in today's more expensive models, this one's for you. There's a bevy of colorways available so you can match your team's gear. Spend that holiday cash wisely.

$70
