Expert reviews:

The Peak Streetball Master is a signature shoe of the two-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams. These low-top basketball shoes are released in the middle of 2017 at an affordable price of $65. It comes with an EVA midsole for responsiveness. The herringbone traction pattern works well outdoors. The woven textile upper is durable and flexible for a comfortable use.

Cushion. The responsiveness of the Peak Streetball Master comes from the shock-absorbing EVA midsole with ESS. The ESS, or Energy Storage System, functions like Nike’s Zoom technology. It absorbs impact and then bounces back to deliver an explosive energy return.

Traction. It is believed that translucent outsole rubbers are not suitable for outdoor play. The Peak Streetball Master  busts this myth. Depending on the colorway, the outsole of the Peak Streetball Master is made of either solid or translucent rubber. It features herringbone, and Peak states that the outsole is specifically set up for outdoor use.

Length and Width. The Peak Streetball Master runs true to size. However, there is a bit of toe space according to reviewers. Wearers with normal-sized feet can double their socks or go down half a size. Wide footers will not have an issue with the fit as the textile upper stretches over time.

Lockdown. The Peak Streetball Master uses a standard lace-up system. The tongue comes with a loop to keep it in place.

The Peak Streetball Master comes with a woven textile upper. This material is durable, flexible, and breathable. Fuse overlays are found on high-wear areas to serve as extra protection. To achieve a more comfortable fit, the ankle and inner walls of the shoe are padded.

The Peak Streetball Master is a low-top basketball shoe with a woven upper that features an ornate honeycomb pattern.  As such, the shoe is so easy to match with any outfit.

The Peak Streetball Master comes in a number of colorways:

  • Black/Green
  • Gray/White
  • Red/White
  • White/Black
