Grosbasket’s end-of-the-year list of the basketball shoes that have the best price and quality ratio

Some call them team models, others consider them budget basketball shoes. Whichever way you decide to label them, the most important thing to keep in mind is that these are kicks that have the best price and quality ratio! This means that they might definitely help you save some money while you will still be able to enjoy using some of the newest sneaker technologies. We decided to take a quick look at some of the best kicks from this category for 2022 and also provide some details about them.

LeBron Witness 7

Every year, this line from one of the most iconic NBA players of all time keeps delivering great looks, performances and prices! Just as the LeBron XX is one the best performance models of 2022, the Witness 7s are kings of this category. Similar to previous Witness versions, this one is also ideal for outdoor use, especially given the quite significant Air max unit that provides awesome impact protection. The traction is also pretty sweet!

Giannis Immortality 2

It’s exciting to see that some of the best basketball players in the world are embracing the affordable category within their brands and while some players did it a bit after establishing their flagship lines, the Greek Freak jumped on this trend basically right away after his first signature model dropped. When compared to the Witness line, there is still some room for improvement here, but there is no doubt that this is yet another way above average outdoor performer.

KD Trey X

One of the more “slept on” items from this category! Part of the reason for this is maybe that Kevin Durant and his main model are constantly at the very top performance-wise so many prefer them which is totally understandable. However, the Nike KD Trey X is in our opinion a great idea for younger players who are getting more serious about playing as the main tech highlights include a front Zoom Air unit and a full-length Renew foam midsole. Unlike the previous two models, our recommendation is to use this one primarily on indoor courts.

Harden Stepback 3

Ever since it was first introduced, this collaboration between the Beard and adidas has resulted with basketball shoes that are known for being a great fit right out of the box. Also, the Stepbacks always provide comfort that you will love and full-length Bounce foam was the technology implemented to make sure that this year’s model brings you just that. Even though most team model basketball shoes are great for outdoor use, this is another one that we preferred much more indoors.

Kyrie Flytrap 5

Since the collaboration between Kyrie Irving and Nike is a thing of the past, we will send it off with this model that turned out to be quite a hit with people who have wider feet. The upper materials play an important role for this as they provided just the right amount of both comfort and containment. The Zoom Air unit is nice bonus for the shoe!

Under Armour Spawn 4

Some might consider this basketball shoe to be a true team model since it is not part of an athlete’s signature line. While we can have this debate when you come and visit Grosbasket stores in Budapest, Ljubljana and Zagreb we just want to give you the main pieces of information about this truly great performing shoe! It is primarily designed for speed and support so guards will definitely enjoy wearing them. The full-length Micro G cushioning is thicker under the heel and this provides great back to front transfer of energy. Overall, we love this shoe!

Puma Playmaker Pro

Puma is the most recent addition to our collection of best basketball gear and we were pleasantly surprised with this model for several reasons:

  • awesome design
  • solid traction
  • great price
  • full-length ProFoam cushioning
  • durable and breathable materials

This concludes the list and in case you have any other ideas for basketball shoes that should be added to it, please let us know! Also, we hope that you will be able to take advantage of these great deals and get yourself a new pair!
