Basketball sneakers have come a long way since the first Chuck Taylors in the 1960s. 

Dunk-mania has been dominating the sneaker game for the longest time, while modern classics like the Air Jordan 31 continue to transcend the court and become cultural linchpins—setting the stage for today’s wealth of performance advancements. 

And then, of course, there’s the matter of style. It’s no secret that a certified basketball crep can go just as hard as a chunky silhouette or retro runner; basketball shoes were the first statement sneaks to grace the industry, and some of the most iconic sneaker designs ever hailed from the hardwood, including Nike’s Air Zoom Huarache, the Converse Weapon and FILA’s signature Ninety6. Naturally, they pair well with streetwear-inspired looks, loud colourways working with bold graphic tees and relaxed denim, whereas muted monochrome iterations can complement more minimal ‘fits. 

With the summer heat showing no signs of slowing down, there’s no better way to spend the day than on the court. We hit the stacked pages of eBay to round up 5 Authentically Guaranteed basketball shoes available to buy right now*—scroll through below.
