Basketball shoes are slightly different to trainers - think extra cushioning and propulsion for starters. They come up higher to give your foot better support - smart considering all that slam-dunking you'll be doing - and they often have superior rubber on the sole, so you won't slip on the court. Velcro straps look cool while also making it quicker and easier to fasten up and get in the game, which is why many of our kids' styles feature them.
