5 reasons to buy

  • According to a tester, the Peak TP6’s traction works well on clean courts.
  • The TP6’s cushioning feels very low to the ground, a reviewer claims. It is very responsive and provides excellent court feel.
  • A tester says that these cheap basketball shoes look and feel premium. He claims that the materials feel nice on-feet.
  • The support and lockdown are really good, a player states.
  • These Tony Parker basketball shoes look dope, several commenters declare.

3 reasons not to buy

  • Dust is a huge issue, a tester gripes. The outsole picks up dust really fast and is quite hard to wipe off.
  • A reviewer is disappointed with the cushioning of the Peak TP6. It is slightly clunky and feels really stiff.
  • The P Boom technology doesn’t allow any heel compression, a tester claims.

Bottom line

With the limited number of reviews, it is quite hard to get a good grasp of how these Peak basketball shoes perform on the hardwood. From what he could gather, the TP6 is close to being a good on-court performer. The fit, materials, support, and lockdown all work well; however, the traction and cushioning are a bit of a letdown. For under $100, the Peak TP6 is still worth considering if you are in the market for a unique and stylish basketball shoe.

Good to know

Tony Parker’s sixth signature basketball shoe from Peak boasts several changes since the line debuted in 2014. The TP6 features an upgraded Gradient Dual Tech for enhanced cushioning underfoot. The upper is constructed of a combination of leather and mesh for breathable support. TPU wings wrap around the heel area for added stability.

Cushion. At the forefoot, the TP6 boasts an upgraded Gradient Dual Tech for increased acceleration. The forefoot is packed with four cushioning modules that contain dual-density foams. At the heel, a Peak cushion pad offers added impact protection. A small TPU shank is also present for torsional rigidity.

Traction. The rubber outsole features a modified traction pattern that provides multidirectional coverage.

Length and Width. The Peak TP6 reportedly fits true to size but feels slightly narrow. However, one retail website suggests going up half a size.

Lockdown. Covering the heel is Peak’s new P-Boom technology for added stability and containment. This TPU heel piece extends to the midsole to prevent the heel from sliding off the footbed.

The upper features a combination of leather and knit for increased support and breathability.

The Peak TP6 boasts a combination of contemporary materials for a fresh look on and off the court. Like other signature shoes like Kyrie Irving’s fifth Nike signature and Harden’s 3rd volume of Adidas shoes, the TP6 also has signature touches in its aesthetics. For one, Tony Parker’s logo is on the tongue and TPU wings.

Tony Parker’s sixth signature basketball shoe is currently available in the following colors:

  • Black/White ‘Away’
  • White/Black ‘Home’
