Best shoes you have worn...

What is your best court shoe you have ever worn? If this is a repeat thread, let me know.

Call me crazy, but i still like the classic referee shoe by new balance. Tried others, but this one is my favorite.

Actually this was a couple of years ago, not months ago.

But the question is a little different. He seems to be asking what is the best shoe that we have worn, not what we are wearing now (like the thread asked about 3 years ago).

At this point the absolute best were the shoes I was talking about in 2008. I love the Air Max 2009 Leather Running Shoe I have now, but the best is still the Air Max 2009. I still have a pair in the box not used.



Peace

Misty Water Colored Memories ...

Spot Bilts. Thirty years ago. They were a shoe, not a sneaker. Took a shine that you could see your face in. Great support. Bought two pairs when I started and got them resoled several times before the uppers eventually wore out. They don't make 'em like that any more.

All black of course. Awesome shoe. Don't like it's not all leather meaning you cant shine it. Probably changing either back to NB 610s next year or may try something new.

Maybe these??

thanks for the humor and answers. I have been wearing the NB 610's but I have severe plantar fascitis and my doctor says my shoes aren't helping. Unfortunately, they donot make referee shoes that are therapeutic.

But, you can use shoes that are better for you than others and you can get inserts which will help too.

As an over-pronator with flat feet, I use prescribed inserts and have no issues - and I did previously. It's good to go to the Dr!
