2016 has been a sensational year for basketball. The Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA title in a well fought NBA Finals rematch against the Golden State Warriors. Team USA clinched the 2016 Summer Olympics title in a gritty match against Serbia. And on 13th April, legendary Lakers champ Kobe ‘Black Mamba’ Bryant played his final NBA match against Utah Jazz, ending his career on a season-high 60 point score. 2016 has also been the year for some of the most technologically advanced basketball shoes to hit the courts. With designs that take you effortlessly from the courts to the streets, here are the top 5 basketball shoes you should be copping to lay down some mad layups.

Its half-length inner sleeve made of stretch mesh delivers a one-to-one fit, as a durable rubber outsole is sculpted to enhance flexibility and court feel. A full-length Duralon outsole with its radiating herringbone pattern mimics the underbelly of a snake for ultimate traction.
