Low-top basketball shoes were in the minority for most of the last 25 years, but they’re starting to become the preferred choice of shoes by basketball players today. Is ankle support overrated, or is it based on style of play? Guys like Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Gilbert Arenas, and even Michael Jordan are connected to low-top sneakers, and the one common aspect of each of the players previously mentioned is that they all have similar styles of play. The Air Max 360 BB Low will be one of the more popular shoes for the remainder of the NBA season and summer basketball leagues, so here’s look at an all-new colorway that should help you prep for your games. This black/varsity purple colorway features a nubuck upper with purple Flywire shell uppers and Max Air/outsole combos. Finishline just dropped these so take another look below and let us know what you think.
