Best Basketball Shoes Video – Volleyball Shoes vs Basketball Shoes?
Hopefully this helps on some insight on court footwear.
Volleyball Shoes shown:
Mizuno Wave Tornado 2
Mizuno Wave Lightning 5
Mizuno Wave Tornado 6
Mizuno Wave Lightning Z http://www.mizunousa.com/volleyball/products/mens-wave-lightning-rx3-clone-1
Mizuno Wave Bolt 4 http://www.mizunousa.com/volleyball/products/mens-wave-bolt-3-clone-1
Both these shoes are the newer versions of the Wave Lightning 5…as you can see similar build still but probably upgraded uppers with synthetic and plastic uppers (fused layers). The Lightning Z vs Bolt argument is that the Z has more and newer tech in it such and more layers in the upper and a different fitting sole.
Mizuno Wave Tornado 9 http://www.mizunousa.com/volleyball/products/mens-wave-tornado-8-clone-1
This shoe is the newer and improved Tornado that has all of Mizuno’s newer and improved tech based on the info on their website…but looks to me that its still the same shoe. Based on the reviews on their site people love them for their cushioning and their quality. One thing I forgot to mention is that the Tornado has pretty good ventilation with a vent on the bottom of the shoe in the arch area as well as perforations all over the upper with lots of mesh. One thing I thought that was cool in Mizunos especially in the Tornado line.
Basketball shoes and Tech Specs:
Nike Kobe XI EM Bruce Lee: Engineered Mesh Upper, Flywire, Fuse, Lunarlon insole, Improved rubber outsole. You can still find the Kobe XI in stores and usually for sale now. Good overall shoe to have in rotation. (The Kobe X has been out for some time now and does not have the removable insole. This is the first time the shoe has been like this since the VI. I have not had a chance to purchase or play in the shoe but that right there put the X over the IX, the 8, and the VII because the removable insole just created problems for me. The X has a new redesigned outsole inspired by racing tires, articulated Lunarlon sole as well as a Zoom Air bag in the heel. The upper is a textile mesh along with fuse, something like the the VII had but better and just as strong. I’ve heard mixed reviews, some good, some bad, but more good so you can take the chance with them if you want the new shoes that just came out.)
Nike Hyper Dunk 2013 TB: Engineered Mesh Upper, Flywire, Fuse, Targeted Lunarlon in forefoot and heel with Phylon midsole, Herringbone outsole. Can still find these in select stores and in Nike Clearance and Factory stores for well under retail and I’ve seen for as cheap as $40. A great balanced shoe to have that will get the job done.
Nike Hyper Rev 2015 TB: Engineered Mesh Upper, Flywire, Fuse, Targeted Zoom Air in forefoot and heel with Phylon midsole, Herringbone outsole. Just recently released…retails for $130 but can be found on sale online.
Jordan Melo M11 Christmas: Leather Upper, Flight Web Lacing System, Phylon Midsole with Flight Plate and Unlocked Forefoot Zoom, Multi-Directional grooves on outsole. Has been out since Jan of 2015 can still be found in stores for $160 but can be found online for sale around $140. This is one of my favorite shoes to wear at the moment along with the Air Jordan XX9. These have the old school feel of 90s shoes but has the tech of today. Personally I tend to lean toward these as the XX9’s upper can lack the structure and overall support of the M11. XX9 vs M11. $160 vs $225. Decision is yours.
