But then there are buyers who are not convinced that the Pro Adversary is for the court. Many of them search for alternative kicks to meet their needs and stay on the budget.

First is the 11th Jordan signature shoe of Chris Paul. At only at $115, this positively-reviewed low-top hoop shoe is made of premium materials.

Basketball returnee Puma Hoops released a $120-sneaker inspired by the brand’s first signature athlete Walt “Clyde” Frazier. The Clyde Court Disrupt is a surprise to many. At only $120, these low-top basketball kicks delivers more than just performance.

Cushion. The Adidas Pro Adversary Low comes with the enhanced Cloudfoam cushioning. It offers optimum comfort and responsiveness. Cloudfoam is not as great as the Bounce or Boost technology. Even so, it helps protect the leg muscles from fatigue and stress.

Lockdown. The Adidas Pro Adversary Low utilizes the standard lace-up closure. The tongue comes with a loop to prevent it from side-to-side movements. Because of its full tongue, the shoe allows Orthotics.

Low-top basketball shoes are diverse when it comes to style. The Adidas Pro Adversary Low is appealing when worn with any pair of plain pants and shirt. A no-no would be baggy pants. As for women, there must be no hesitation to pair these hot kicks with sport skirts or dresses.
