Lately, one of the most common attitudes regarding basketball footwear is that "lower is better". While that's true in many cases, sometimes the lack of ankle support can be problematic for individual players. If you're not totally convinced about the low-profile trend, or just want to try out something new, consider the Li-Ning Turningpoint today. Worn by NBA point guard Evan Turner, the Li-Ning Turningpoint's mesh upper and synthetic upper offers breathability and plenty of support thanks to a high ankle cut and stable overlays. The Li-Ning Turningpoint's EVA midsole is cushioned by the brand's CushioN and Bounse technologies for impact protection and support. The rubber and TPU outsole of the Li-Ning Turningpoint features a grippy traction pattern for quick cuts. Try out the Li-Ning Turningpoint today for $99.
